Hi, I'm Maggie
I am a registered and qualified integrative counsellor supporting people through difficult life transitions with special interests in becoming a parent, infant loss, parenting issues, and working with older people who are finding their way through the changes of retirement and exploring what happens in their next life chapter. As well as supporting clients find their way through grief and loss after the death of a partner.
Having over 9 years of experience in mental health and well-being, my way of working is from a humanistic approach with a compassion focus. I encourage my clients to explore their free will and look at their ability to make healthy changes to improve their mental health and well-being. I offer a safe, comfortable space and confidential environment for clients to explore their understanding of their true self. We are all evolving as people, changes in our life events will occur whether you want it to or not. You have a choice whether to learn and grow by deepening your self-awareness of who you are and how you are responding to your life events or to feel stuck continuously being affected by your past experiences. I offer compassion
empathy and attentive listening through my therapeutic relationships with my clients.
Therapy provides great insight into what your life experiences have meant to you as an individual. Through my counselling service, I offer you opportunities to develop ways of gaining a deeper understanding of your past experiences and how they have influenced your ways of being. We focus on what it is you are struggling with right now as you recover from your past experiences and move towards improving your mental health and well-being in the here and now. I look forward to hearing from you.
I can help support you through many different life events.
