My name is Margi and I am a Person Centred Counsellor based in central Edinburgh. I provide a safe, non-judgemental private space for you to feel comfortable to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Through respect and trust, together we can explore your life situation and establish your desired goals towards a brighter future. I understand that committing to therapy takes courage. By seeking counselling you have already taken the first step towards change.
My role is to help guide you and support you through those times that you may struggle to see the way ahead. My style is relaxed, warm and gentle. I have over ten years experience in Cancer Support for people of all ages, but I also help clients with many other issues such as bereavement, trauma, anxiety, low self esteem and depression. I offer long and short-term therapy and also work with past and present issues, depending on your needs.
At the moment I offer counselling via telephone or on-line. I offer a free initial 20 minute telephone consultation in which you can outline your situation and see if we are a good fit and I can also answer any questions you may have.

I would love the opportunity to work with you, as talking within a safe therapeutic relationship can be a life changing, healing process.

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.
