Edwina Hawkridge Counselling in Stamford, and City of London

Home. Hello

Hello and Welcome

Counselling Stamford and London

Are you looking for an experienced counsellor in the City of London or 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. In my experience issues do not get better or disappear without help, you are in control of choosing to see me,(together we can look at what changes you’d like to make and start implementing them), choosing to see someone else or doing nothing. Whatever you choose, I hope that you find the help that you need.

Home. My Room


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 London or Stamford (my Stamford therapy room is pictured to the right).

Home. London Room

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. (My London room pictured to the left).

All sessions last for 50 minutes. 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, recently expanding my practice to London. At all locations I provide a warm, safe, and non-judgemental environment.

Counselling Young People

I have spent many years counselling young people in my counselling room, and inside schools. One in four teenage girls is depressed, there is a rise in teenage self harm and loneliness and young people have to navigate the ever pressurising world of social media. I help young people untangle the confusion of school, peer relationships, bullying, substance abuse, self-harm, relationships, home life and many other concerns.

I currently work for several charities; CASY, YMCA, CCC and CRUSE who provide low cost counselling to the community, which is a cause I believe in.

Specialism - Eating Disorders

In addition to working in mental health as a counsellor I am a specially trained therapist for working with Eating Disorders, Disordered Eating, Obesity and Weight issues. Food is a complex relationship forged in childhood and adapted as we navigate life. It doesn't take much for the relationship to go wrong which can lead to under or overeating and possibly binge eating in between. Eating and weight issues can make you feel miserable, help and support is needed to overcome an eating issue, it rarely disappears on it's own let's start rebuilding your happiness in this area so that eating and weight is no longer an issue for you.

I work with Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder and Other Eating Disorders. Each eating disorder requires unique ways of working to help put you back in control and move forward with your life.

Weight Loss London, Market Deeping, Stamford, Peterborough

Home. Scales

In addition to general counselling, I am a specialist therapist for eating disorders, 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.

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 London, 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.

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

Counsellor Eating Disorders London, Peterborough ,Stamford, Market Deeping

Eating disorders have the ability to make the sufferer feel miserable. The impact they have on your life is huge, whether you go to the extreme to restrict food as a way of losing and maintaining a low weight. Eat well in the day and then have a big blow binge episodes at stressful times or make yourself vomit after eating as you 'feel fat'. I can help you navigate your eating disorder so that it feels more under control and we, together, can start to restore your happiness with your body, emotions and with food. 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. The earlier we start to tackle your issues the easier it will be to overcome. NHS provision for eating disorders is fantastic in some parts of the UK. I offer eating disorder treatment privately for those people who have decided to take action and want to avoid waiting lists, or where eating disorder provision in your area is not as robust.
