Margaret Lipton, MSc,UKCP, MBACP
At the heart of my work is the strong belief that we can change, which is based on my own positive experience of psychotherapy. The journey can be difficult and challenging but it can also be hugely rewarding, uplifting and ultimately life enhancing.
In sharing your journey I can offer you a safe, supportive, non-judgemental space where you can explore what is troubling you
and a chance to speak openly and confidentially to someone who is able to listen. You will find an opportunity to be heard and understood whilst grappling with uncomfortable, perhaps confusing, thoughts and feelings and gain some insight into how your present difficulties may be linked to earlier experiences. Over time this can lead to a sense of integration and wholeness with increased self awareness and greater personal fulfillment.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Not everyone seeks help with a specific issue like depression or anxiety. Therapy can also support personal development and growth, help build confidence and boost self esteem. It can foster understanding when you feel different, isolated or stuck in a pattern of dissatisfaction and can provide support if you are are dealing with grief or shame. It can offer a place to talk through the impact of changing circumstances or to share your difficulties in meeting the demands of everyday life.
My standard fee is £50 for a 50min session although reduced fees may be negotiated according to circumstances.
I follow the codes of ethics of both the UKCP and BACP and all my clinical work is professionally supervised.
I view each therapeutic journey as unique, guided by the central relationship that develops between therapist and client. Please feel free to arrange an introductory session to discuss your needs, to consider short or long term work, to ask any questions you may have and to see if you feel you could be comfortable working with me.
