Maggie Murray Registered MBACP Humanistic Integrative Counsellor
I have been working within Lincolnshire as a BACP, qualified and registered Integrative Counsellor for 8 years. I work with adults over 18 years of age. My special interests are working with individuals who are experiencing difficult life transitions such as infant loss, perinatal mental health difficulties, parenting difficulties, relationship issues, retirement and loss of direction, and finding your way after the loss of a long term partner.
My approach is based on compassion focused therapy and mindfulness, encouraging clients to explore their free will and choices through learning a deeper understanding of the types of affects of their regulator systems. Working with a curious mind and acceptance that changes happen. I offer a safe and confidential space and work together compassionately with my client to support them through their experiences to alleviate their distress.
If you are looking for emotional support through your life transitions I am here and ready to support you!
I will support you to work towards self-acceptance of where you are right now! We can look at safe and healthy ways for you to respond to your life experiences. Bringing your attention to your self-care and being more compassionate so you can begin to heal from your experiences and focus on working towards feelings of contentment.

Training, qualifications & experience
As a registered member of the BACP, I work ethically within the standards of the Professional body as a competent private practice counsellor continuing clinical supervision and professional development attending courses, workshops, events and research. I was awarded a level of Distinction completing my Higher Professional Diploma in Counselling.
I have worked within schools, Lincolnshire Counselling Service, YMCA, Lincolnshire County Council, and now in Private Practice. Many of my referals come from word of mouth through my previous clients, other colleagues a few GP's and some EAP organisations.
From personal experience, I can empathise that engaging in a counselling process is a personal journey of exploration and self-discoveries.
You may experience a sense of anxious or overwhelming feelings as you release deep emotions during the counselling process as you find your way of improving your mental health and well-being. I am here to support you through this journey with empathy, encouragement, compassion and acceptance!
