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.

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.
