Providing Integrative Counselling that embraces and affirms the inherent value of each individual.

About Maggie Deleo


I trained as an integrative counsellor at Southampton University and also trained in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) at Exeter University. I have a Masters Diploma in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and a certificate in Coaching. These qualifications give me a wide range of techniques to draw on. For the past five years I have been employed by IAPT (Increased Access to Psychological Therapies) part of Avon and Wilts NHS Trust in GP surgeries throughout Wiltshire.

During the first session of counselling (first assessment free) I aim to develop a constructive therapeutic relationship with you where we adopt approaches from the range of techniques I work with. My aim is to help you find your individual voice and belief in yourself. I have extensive experience of working both as a body therapist and counsellor and am committed to a holistic approach, this could include modifying diet, lifestyle and practising mindfulness as well as more conventional psychological therapy.

Here are some Therapies offered

Understanding and working with panic/anxiety disorders also anxiety and depression and the many causes of or those symptoms. Working with clients to discover and challenge unhelpful patterns of thinking.

CBT

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy works on the basis that our actions are determined by our thoughts so if we wish to change the way we live we have to change the way we think.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is being deeply aware of the present moment and is an important part of facilitating acceptance and change.

Integrative

An integrative approach takes the best from different traditions of psychological theory without being constrained by the straight jacket of a one school approach.

SFT

Solution Focussed Brief Therapy is based on solution building rather than problem solving helping you to look forward and use your own strengths to achieve your goals.

Areas of counselling I deal with

Anxiety

Anxiety can manifest as a reaction to a stressful situation. These type of stress-related anxiety disorders are classed as ‘reaction disorders’.

Bereavement

Bereavement is the time we spend adjusting to loss. There is no standard time limit and there is no right or wrong way to feel during the bereavement period

Betrayals

Affairs and betrayals can severely strain any relationship. They break the bond of trust and often trigger a complex web of emotions.

Depression

Living with this condition can be difficult, not only for sufferers, but also for those around them. Despite this, many sufferers will wait a long time before seeking help

Emotional abuse

Emotional abuse allows one person to gain power and control over another through words and gestures which gradually undermine the other’s self respect.

Generalised anxiety disorder

Generalised anxiety disorder (also referred to as GAD) is a long-term condition that causes sufferers to feel anxious about a variety of situations/issues.

Low self-confidence

Self-confidence is about trusting your own judgement and feeling comfortable with your abilities and powers. It is the means to realise your full potential and be the person you want to be.

Low self-esteem

The more positive feelings you have about yourself, the higher your self-esteem is; the more negative feelings you have the lower your self-esteem is.

OCD

This anxiety-related illness affects around 1.2% of the UK’s population, and approximately 740,000 people are thought to suffer with OCD at any one time.

Panic disorder

It can be very stressful living with panic disorder, and many sufferers go on to develop further problems such as depression, and drug or alcohol abuse.

Phobias

A phobia is an overwhelming and debilitating fear that develops when someone has an exaggerated sense of danger about a certain object or situation
