Silvia Maguire | Therapist
Face to face, online and telephone counselling.
My name is Silvia Maguire and I’m a fully-qualified counsellor working with individuals and couples.
The purpose of my work is to take care to your concerns and needs by helping you to find more positive and creative ways to explore and understand your difficulties, raise your self-awareness and promote personal development and self-fulfillment within an empathic and collaborative therapeutic backdrop.
When working with couples, the focus will be given to you both and your relationship. We will look into the issues that you feel exist in your relationship by creating a balanced environment for exploration and communication and co-operatively, finding ways to resolve your problems.
I offer long-term and short-term solution-focus counselling for individuals over the age of 18, living in the area of Hertfordshire.
I work with different areas of concerns, like loss and grief, anxiety and depression, managing self-confidence and self-criticism as well as building low self-esteem and health boundaries and understanding relationships issues within personal, family and working environments.
Counselling is the process of exploring and making sense of your concerns within a safe, secure and confidential environment provided by a qualified professional counsellor.
It provides you with a regular space and time just for you where you can talk about your worries and understand your experiences. Moreover, you will be able to connect with your feelings and find your true self. Certainly, engaging in therapy can be hugely transformative and restorative.
Honestly, I’m so grateful to you for everything. Some weeks it was like I was hanging on by a thread waiting for my session and always felt safe, comfortable and understood. But thank you mostly for helping me to see my worth and helping value myself.
I began counselling with Silvia reluctantly as I didn’t think my ‘struggles’ were ‘bad enough’ but went along to try and relieve my feelings of anxiety and gain balance in life. I am so glad that I went for that first session, Silvia has helped me change my life and mindset completely. I will be forever grateful to Silvia for helping me and guiding me to reach a new perspective in life and especially changing the way I look at myself. I have learnt so much and will miss our sessions, despite being grateful for the freedom to live that they have given me!
Silvia is an amazing counsellor. She has a calm, caring, non-judgemental approach and listens intently. Her therapy room is beautiful, quiet and very comfortable.
Just to say many thanks for your help and support over the past few weeks. You made the sessions challenging and reflective – and in such a calm environment – I have definitely moved on as a result.
I can’t recommend Silvia enough. Her patience, kindness and insight has provided me with a deeper connection and understanding of myself. I’ve found myself very much looking forward to our sessions over the last 11 months. Silvia is very warm and empathetic which makes it feel so much easy and comfortable opening up to her. I’m looking forward to many more sessions with Silvia as she’s really made the last year so much better for me.
