Margaret McLean, BSc Hons Psychology, PG Dip Counselling.
Hello. My name is Margaret McLean. I am a fully qualified, BACP registered Counsellor and COSCA certified Supervisor. I became a counsellor because I believe we all deserve to feel happy and fulfilled in our lives, and crucially, I believe that we all have the capacity within ourselves to achieve this. However, sometimes adverse life experiences leave us struggling to cope on our own and we may need a little extra support to help us get through difficult times. Counselling offers a unique relationship that can help you feel supported, so that you begin to see things more clearly and eventually find ways to move forward. My role as a counsellor is to help you tap into your own resources to find your own answers and make the changes you need to feel better.
I offer 1-1 Counselling, Psychotherapy and Couple Counselling. I qualified in Person Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy but over the years I have continually added to my skills and knowledge base so that now I work integratively, incorporating several therapeutic approaches including Mindfulness Stress Reduction and Relapse Prevention programmes, CBT, Gendlin’s Experiential Focusing and Emotion Freedom Techniques (EFT) within the framework of my core training in the Person Centred Approach.
I work creatively, tailoring the therapy to suit each clients’ individual needs. I teach Mindfulness 1-1 and in groups.
If you think I might be able to help you, then please get in touch.
