Margaret McGregor DIP COUNS. BACP member.
Hi my name is Margaret I am a 'Person Centered' therapeutic counsellor. My aim is to provide you with a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space to explore your concerns. To offer you the opportunity to move into state in which feelings can be fully felt, accepted and expressed appropriately, combined with trust and acceptance of self.
You may have specific needs such as help with distressing life events such as bereavement, loss, addictions or help with conditions such as anxiety or depression. Perhaps you need to explore personal experiences or you would like to enhance your personal effectiveness.
I am a member Of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) this means that I adhere to the highest standards of Professional and Ethical practice. So you can be assured that you are in 'safe hands'.

The duration of the counselling will ultimately be your choice. It would, in most cases normally be beneficial to commit to at least 6 sessions. Usually this would be a weekly session but if you should feel that fortnightly would suit you better then in most instances this can be flexible.
