Marguerite Phillips, Counselling Psychotherapist/Couples/Individuals
I am a psychodynamic/psychotherapist working with individuals and couples experiencing difficulties within their relationship. I offer you a safe non-judgemental space to be heard in confidence. Anxieties, depression, addictions, abuse and unfaithfulness can cause immense upheaval and distress. While struggling with such difficulties one can lose perspective I will work with you and help you to gain clarity in order to move on with the functioning of your daily life.
I have many years of experience working with depression,loss and relationship breakdown This incorporates affairs, relationship/family breakdowns and miscommunications. It may be that you have just experienced a traumatic or unexpected life event. Perhaps you feel your concerns are related to significant deep rooted, unresolved past issues. Together we can explore your feelings and struggles. We can think together about self worth, self esteem and confidence.
I offer therapy from my private practices based in Winchmore Hill N21, Crouch End N8, Holloway N7 and Southgate N14
I work alongside the client, in their time, in order to understand their concerns. This may include incorporating CBT into the work. This may be short term, focused sessions (6-12 weeks) or ongoing open ended work.
Outside of my private practice I work for a counselling service in Enfield, North London as an assessor, and therapist, both for individuals and couples. I work together with clients and help them to gain awareness incorporating reflections on how their past may have impacted their present life and thus be a contributing factor in their current difficulties. This work is open ended.
I work with the bereaved and those faced with debilitating illnesses. I work as a Bereavement Counsellor for a London Hospice working with the bereaved, disabled and terminally ill. This work is ongoing, lasting up to 14 months.
I abide by the BACP code of ethics. I have ongoing supervision and fulfil requirements regarding continuing personal development.
I understand that with a busy lifestyle that face to face counselling can sometimes prove difficult. Therefore, I am also able to offer telephone, online and Skype counselling.
