About me

About me.

Hi, my name is Maggie. We all experience difficulties at some time in our lives and we struggle to make sense of our worlds, by offering one to one sessions, I could help you find a new perspective.

Your first session and what to expect.

You can contact me by phone or email and we will have a conversation, agreeing a date and time for your initial session.

The first session will form part of your assessment, where I will collect information from you about your situation. I will discuss myself and how we could work together, if you wish to proceed, then we will agree a time and day for your 50 minute sessions.

I will try to answer any questions you have at this part of the assessment.

How I work.

I work with adults, children and adolescents. I am a qualified counsellor and member of BACP, I offer short-term or longer-term individual counselling, dependent on each client's specific needs.

I offer a safe, confidential and comfortable environment in Lincoln, that is sensitive and non-judgemental to allow the building of a trusting counsellor, client relationship.

My approach is psychodynamic, but dependent on the client, offer integrative counselling, including CBT and person-centred counselling. I work creatively and use visualisation, if this is appropriate for my clients.

Whilst working with children and adolescents, I like to work with family and incorporate this in the sessions, by one or both parents attending some of the counselling sessions, if this is appropriate. My belief is that working all together can and does improve the building of a healthy relationship outside of the counselling sessions.

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.

Accredited register membership
