My name is Meagan Maddocks, and I specialize in working with clients who are living with chronic diseases. I have been working as a registered clinical counsellor for 12 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 disease 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 disease.
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.
