My name is Meagan Maddocks, and I specialize in working with clients who are living with chronic illnesses. I have been working as a registered clinical counsellor for over 15 years; and I have had the opportunity to work in community and in hospital settings supporting clients who are struggling to balance life's challenges and joys.
When you are living with a chronic illness this balancing act is more difficult, and takes more energy. Sometimes a task you wouldn't have give a second thought to before, now requires all the physical, emotional and mental energy you have for the entire day, if not week.
Based on my personal and professional experience, I know that there are ways to support and manage the balancing act of living with chronic illness and I look forward to working with you. Please note that I also work with care givers and loved ones who may be struggling with how to support a person a living with a chronic illness.
My approach is using a variety of modalities to support and empower clients to trust in their ability to manage and move forward as life presents different issues to balance. I also emphasize that you are the expert in your life, and what you bring into your counselling session is what we work on together. I provide a genuine and empathic space that is warm and non-judgemental.
My background includes:
Adlerian therapy, Solution focused therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Person-centered therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Strength based therapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Visualization, Mindfulness and Meditation & Body centered therapy.
I specialize in supporting clients who are living with chronic illnesses.
Some of my clients live with:
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Myalgic Encephalomyelitis
Type I Diabetes & Type II Diabetes
These diagnosis, including many other complex and chronic illnesses can increase depression & anxiety and create challenges in relationships, work, future goals and cause complicated grief & loss issues.
