Hello and Welcome

Counselling Stamford

Are you looking for an experienced counsellor in Stamford (near Peterborough) who can help you work through a difficult time in your life? Perhaps you are struggling with stress, anger, depression or anxiety, weight management issues, relationship issues or a bereavement. I'm Edwina, and I am committed to providing a warm and supportive relationship, in which you are the sole focus, to help you work through your confusion. People often seek out counselling with me when a stressful change is taking place which can, at times, feel overwhelming and stress plays a major part in people's unhappiness. Often people come to me knowing that they need help as 'things don't quite feel right' but are unable to pinpoint the problem. Together we can look at what changes you’d like to make and start implementing them.

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 (pictured to the right).

I have been privileged to help many people understand and overcome their difficulties. Most people see the changes for themselves in the form of stress reduction,and improved emotional wellbeing. I understand the power of being able to see evidence of change and this is something that can be discussed further at our first session.


The first counselling session is free, and all sessions last between 50 - 60 minutes, each session thereafter is £50. I work with people just like you, adults or teenagers on an open ended or for an agreed time period, dependant on your needs. We will work at your pace to untangle any confusion or distress. The aim of my practice is to enable my clients to be unburdened, enhance their lives and to live life 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 currently work for several charities; CASY, CRUSE, YMCA and CCC who provide low cost counselling to the community, which is a cause I believe in.

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.

In addition to general counselling, I am a specialist therapist for weight management and weight loss. I am trained in the evidence based approach for successful and lasting weight loss promoted by the National Centre for Eating Disorders. If your quality of life is impacted by worries about your weight, an endless cycle of dieting or an unhappy relationship with food and your body, I can help. Please go to my Weight Management Page to find out more.

I often see people who have dieted for years, losing weight and putting it back on, who don't understand why they keep yo-yo-ing. The mind controls everything, and without fundamental changes to your mindset and nutrition the cycle of weight loss followed by weight gain will continue.

I can help you gain control over you're lifestyle, eating and behaviours to boost willpower and make sustainable changes to your weight, size and shape

It is in depth work, where we look at all elements of your life, to implement sustainable changes which make you happier, healthier and more in control.

Counsellor Eating Disorders Peterborough and Stamford

Being overweight, or obese comes with a specific mindset that can keep you trapped in a continuous cycle. The thought patterns are similar to those seen in clients with eating disorders and in some cases clients discover that an eating disorder has been present and thwarting their attempts at weight loss. In most instances chaotic and disordered eating have made the problem worse and left them feeling miserable. I helped them and I can help you too. As a counsellor who deals with eating disorders in Peterborough and Stamford, in addition to disordered eating and obesity mindset, I am in the best position to help you with your eating, weight and shape concerns.
