Margaret Graham MBACP (Reg) MNCS (Accred)
I provide a non-judgemental and confidential setting to explore, talk and be listened to about any issues you may be struggling to cope with
Maybe there are things going on which you can't make sense of and by talking this through with someone professionally trained you can begin to see things more clearly.
Taking that first step of talking to someone can be the hardest one to take.
I have a small private practice located in Mallusk. I also offer home visits. I work as an integrative counsellor which means I combine different approaches and techniques to suit clients individual needs.
I provide long term and short term counselling.
I am a professionally qualified Therapeutic Counsellor. I am fully insured and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy(BACP) and an accredited member of the National Counselling Society(NCS). As such I work within the ethics and boundaries set out by these organisations. This means I always work within the best interests of my clients.
I keep my practice up to date with regular training and supervision.

I have had my own Counselling Practice situated in the Mallusk area of Newtownabbey for a number of years. I have experience in working with anger management, panic attacks, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, relationship and family issues, hoarding, low self esteem, stress management, low self confidence, emotional abuse.
I work from an integrative approach because I believe each client is different and therapy has to be tailored to their needs. In my experience this works better than following just one approach.
I have previously been a volunteer counsellor with Childline. This has helped me gain a lot of insight and experience into issues young people face.
