Edwina Hawkridge Counselling in Stamford, and City of London

Community Work

I've been privileged to help many different people throughout my time as a counsellor, and helping people is a passion of mine and each client has something different to teach me. My niche of helping people with weight issues, as I know so many people who struggle with their body image, weight and relationship with food as a result of dieting. With the training that I have done I am in a unique position to alleviate some of that struggle and to help people positively rebuild themselves; emotionally, physically and mentally through counselling.

I currently work for several charities; CASY, which provides counselling to children and young people across Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, CRUSE which is a bereavement charity I work for locally, YMCA counselling young people in and around Peterborough and CCC where I counsel adults in Stamford. It is my privileged to support charities that provide low cost counselling to the community ensuring people can benefit from a warm and supportive relationship with me no matter their income.
