Counselling Stamford - Hello and Welcome

Welcome, I am Edwina, a fully trained and experienced counsellor, providing counselling in Stamford, and I am wondering if any of these apply to you?

  • Anxious, stressed and life feels overwhelming

  • Sad, depressed and don't know how to feel better

  • Unhappy with your current body weight

  • Alone, with no one to talk to

  • Trapped, afraid and misunderstood

  • Lost, confused and don't know which way to turn

  • Knowing you need help, but unable to pinpoint the problem


    Then you are in the right place, you don't have to be ill in order to want to feel better. Life can be wonderful at times it can also be scary, tough and confusing. We all struggle from time to time and that is completely normal. If you're going through a tough patch you don’t have to struggle alone,I will help you work through the confusion. Together we can look at what changes you’d like to make to start implementing them.


  • How I can help

    In my experience, counselling Stamford residents, many people feel anxious about talking about their concerns, you're in safe hands, we'll explore your past and present at a pace that's right for you. So you can move forward with your life feeling lighter and more empowered. Counselling can help you to; reduce stress, lose weight, promote better sleep, improve work/life balance,reduce arguments, promote greater intimacy, expand your resilience, and assist you with better decision making all of which provides a greater sense of wellbeing. If you are interested in receiving counselling in Stamford to improve your life in these areas please give me a call 07784 105 769.


    Home. Hope


    As part of my service I use measurable reviews to see if there have been changes for you during the counselling process, although most people see the changes for themselves in the form of better communication with others, improved emotional wellbeing and increased resilience. I understand the power of being able to see evidence of change which can be useful, but this is something that can be discussed further at the first session.


    How I work


    Home. My Room

    One of the main reasons people don’t enter into counselling is because they doubt its ability to ‘work’. You are not a problem to be fixed however I can understand the urge to know what the benefits of my services are. Counselling is a collaborative process, we work together exploring your concerns and I provide a confidential, safe and non-judgemental place for this to happen, from my lovely counselling room in the heart of Stamford



    Length of Sessions

    Each counselling session lasts for 50 minutes. I work with adults and teenagers on a long or short term basis for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.


    I have been a practising counsellor in Stamford and Peterborough for several years and I am committed to counselling Stamford residents and individuals, in a warm, safe, and non-judgemental environment. I volunteer in my community working for a childrens charity counselling children and young peple in Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire as well as volunteering for Cruse, a bereavement charity in Stamford.


    My practice is based in the town centre of Stamford which is within easy reach from Peterborough, Wittering, Market Deeping, Bourne, Grantham, Oakham and the surrounding areas.

    Weight Loss Market Deeping, Stamford, Peterborough

    As well as helping people with their concerns I specialise in helping people with weight loss and weight management as this is matter close to my heart as I know the frustrations that dieting can bring. I have trained with the National Centre for Eating Disorders UK so that I can work with eating disorders and disordered eating. Disordered eating is an umbrella term which includes things like overeating, restrained eating, preoccupation with 'healthy foods', compulsive eating, binge eating and many more.


    Did you know that 95% of people who lose weight on a diet regain their weight in less than 18 months! - Stunkard & McLaren-Hume 1959.
    This is still the same today some 58 years later with the diet industry being worth an estimated £2 Bil. in the UK. If you're looking to try something that is different to a diet that helps you lose weight and maintain that loss, weight management counselling may be for you.


    Counsellor Eating Disorders Peterborough and Stamford

    Do you frequently skip breakfast? and then find yourself consuming large amounts of food for the rest of the day? Do you use food to change your mood? Or are you trapped in a spiral of unsuccessful diet after diet? There is every chance that you have disordered eating patterns which are thwarting your attempts at losing weight, something that is not easily changed without help. I can help you devise strategies to help you lose weight and maintain that weight loss without having to deprive yourself.

    If you are looking for help with weight loss in Market Deeping, Stamford, Peterborough or the surrounding areas but are not keen to go on a diet why not give weight loss counselling a try. Without making changes to your behaviours, your thought patterns, your relationship with food and the way you view your body, the frustrating diet cycle of weight loss followed by weight gain is likely to continue. Call me so we can start working on breaking the cycle together 07784 105 769 or email me outlining your weight loss concerns.
