About me

Hello, I am Evelyn Margaret however, everyone calls me Maggie and I am a fully trained and highly experienced counsellor and Accredited Member of the BACP. I am thought of an Integrative counsellor and that this is because I qualified in 2004 as a Person Centred counsellor, I also have an Honour degree in Psychology and have training in the use of CBT.

Offering online and telephone counselling, in a safe, non-judgemental and trusting environment, I help people with many different issues and challenges which include bereavement, stress/anxiety, low mood, bullying, abuse, postnatal depression, relationship/couple counselling and addictions.

I qualified as a person-centred counsellor in 2004 and in that time have helped my clients to move forward when there seems to be no way out or when decisions are difficult to make. My role as your counsellor is to help you to try and find answers from within yourself. I do not give advice, although I do encourage change if where you are is not good for you. I can maybe help you think from a different perspective.

My training and experience means, I am able to combine a number of modalities within the way I work including, person-centred, integrative, cognitive behaviour therapy, solution-focused therapy and gestalt therapy; depending on the presenting problem.

  • I work online using Skype and by telephone.
  • I also offer concessionary rates for those receiving benefit or if you are a student.
  • I do offer home visits for some individuals.
  • I am an Accredited Member with the BACP and work within their ethical framework.
  • I am also a member of the BPS.
  • I have professional counselling insurance and have a current Enhanced CRB clearance.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
