My name is Andrea Edwards. I trained as a Counsellor in the United Kingdom and graduated with an Advanced Diploma in Counselling in June 2005. During that time, I also completed a Foundation Certificate in Youth Work. Since then I have gained a Post Graduate Certificate at Auckland University in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Assessment and I am also a qualified EMDR therapist at Masterclass Level.
Following my graduation, I worked in the UK for 6 years as an Addictions Counsellor with adults and young people and also ran a small private practice from home. I have experience working with sexual abuse, family violence, grief counselling, rape, sexual health, HIV and Hep C individual counselling and group work and adults and young people affected by Cancer. I enjoy being able to work within a range of modalities including, Rogerian person centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focussed, Mindfulness and EMDR
