About me

Hello, and welcome to my page.

My name is Maggie and I have been a practising counsellor since 2008.  I am a warm empathic person who strives to support you through difficult times. My counselling service is available to both men and women where I offer a safe and confidential space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings and make sense of how your life experiences have impacted you.

I have vast experience of working with addictions, loss, bereavement, depression, anxiety and relationship issues.

If you feel ready to start exploring your world and need a safe space to talk and think things through then, please feel free to call or email me.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
