Margaret Walsh MBACP
Are you are struggling with stressful work issues or do you experience low self-esteem? If yes, then these are areas that I specialise in and have a track record of helping individuals navigate through during challenging times. My aim in working with individuals is to help a client become more insightful about the choices they make and therefore more resourceful in life.
Most of my 20+ years of my working life has been in organisations working across all employment sectors (public, private and voluntary) in a variety of human resources role. During these times I often saw first-hand the pressures that individuals at all levels experienced, and how these could often develop into harmful stress. I also saw the benefits that came from listening carefully to individuals and, in so doing, helping them to identify and problem-solve some of the issues they faced and realise greater potential.
Over the years I have also developed a strong interest in self-esteem and how some people struggle with feeling good about themselves. I have worked a good deal with people who want to change but are finding it hard to break out of patterns of thinking or behaving that can undermine them.
I have a wealth of experience, and a flexibility of style, which means that I can work at depth on psychological issues that impact on an individual, as well as working on short-term issues where some new tools and techniques are required to quickly bring about behavioural change. For some individuals, I find that a combination of coaching and counselling helps to bring about long-term and lasting change.
Ultimately, my focus is on your needs and your uniqueness.

Recognising that not everyone can meet face-to-face, I also offer confidential Skype counselling or coaching. Clients have told me that this works very well for them and eliminates travel time and allows maximum flexibility for counselling or coaching to occur.
I am happy to meet at a client's place of work in a confidential space (like a meeting room or private office) to undertake counselling or coaching. The travel zone that I work within covers London and also workplaces within Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire & Hertfordshire.
