About me

My name is Margaret Gray and I am a fully qualified, BACP registered and experienced counsellor/psychotherapist, specialising in person centred therapy. I understand the need for a good therapeutic relationship and am a firm believer that having an environment which is accepting, empathic and genuine will allow you to recognise and achieve your goals. I offer a warm, confidential, and non judgmental environment to talk and truly be heard. I work in a way that empowers you to develop the skills and the confidence needed to bring about long lasting, positive change.

Life can deal bitter blows and change can not only be hard but can be difficult to process on your own.

You may be experiencing anxiety, panic disorder or depression. Feeling sad and hurt, or have a deep sense of longing, frustration or anger?  Perhaps your future feels like an uphill struggle where you are losing motivation. Maybe you have suffered emotional or physical abuse or trauma? Changes to family dynamics either through separation, betrayal or death can leave you with feelings of darkness and fear.  Workplace bullying or harassment can impact self esteem and confidence, making daily life a struggle.

At times when daily activities become overwhelming and what you perceive to be the smallest things that are getting to you, you may feel life can become too much.  You do not have to go through these struggles alone. I can share them with you.

I have experience of working in short, medium and longer-term therapy with clients from a wide range of backgrounds, ages and individual difficulties.  These include, but are not limited to, anxiety, all aspects of domestic abuse, bereavement, cancers, rape, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, work related stress, frustration, historical sexual abuse, profound sadness and depression. This list is not exhaustive and as a confident and ethical practitioner I can offer you a place to explore whatever it is you would like to bring.
