Testimonials:

"I am profoundly grateful for my time with Meghan and the Awareness Centre. Every week I have had a safe and judgement-free place to share my feelings and make sense of my thoughts, feelings and emotions. Over the past five months I have learnt to be guided by my own sense of what is acceptable more and more and have felt that I now have something worthwhile to say. Thanks to Meghan for this steer in such peaceful and sanguine surroundings." N, 2014

"I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for the last 5 months (it feels like ages, now writing that!). I barely recognise that terribly sad person I was when we had our first session and it has truly been a revelation to share some of my deepest thoughts, feelings and memories with you. Very cathartic and soothing … thank you for being a great guidance and for making me feel like someone cared when I didn't believe that anyone could/did." A, 2014

"I could not wait for one week to thank you for my good sleep yesterday night … Yesterday after talking to you I felt much relief and some grief and sadness. After long time I did not wake up in the middle of the night. Thanks a lot for your help !!!" S, 2018

"I have been very impressed with your skills as a therapist and am naturally ready to recommend you to others." G, 2017

"After trying multiple psychotherapy sessions in India, fortunately, I found Meghan before 9 months. For me, these sessions are the safest place on earth to feel, express and process my emotions without fear of being judged. Her clinical skills along with profound empathy are helping me to heal my past traumas and see my true self with a new perspective !!!" S, 2018

"I sought out TSOL therapy sessions to discuss my career and feelings of rejection. I was intrigued that throughout the sessions we discussed so much more and covered relationships, family, friends and the purpose of life. Again, I never felt I chose this explicitly but equally at the same time it felt right and apt to discuss it. This is a testament to your style and the approach of the TSOL in general. I never felt that I was prescribed or instructed to follow anything. However, it is clear to me now that I definitely challenged myself to explore things that I have previously suppressed. In particular, a victim's mindset, self-mistrust and disillusionment are things that I hadn't noticed or thought about much.

I left therapy because I felt as though I had recovered and coalesced. I also developed new perspectives to approach my presumptions about my working and personal relationships. I feel 'whole' having had the opportunity to examine my life and juxtapose my struggles against other abilities and qualities. I can more readily view my thought patterns and see that I can get stuck in a loop. I'm sure that there are plenty of challenges left in store for me. However, unlike before I'm much more optimistic in my ability to deal with them." A, 2018

"I have battled with depression on and off since I was 13 years old and in the past 2 years I have found onsets to become more and more frequent. Depression was preventing me from being able to work, be with those I care about and make the most of my life and opportunities. The onsets made me feel abnormal and were a great source of embarrassment meaning that I’d hide my vulnerability and pretend to others it wasn’t happening. I found myself feeling desperate, in debt and in a spiral of alcoholism.

I contacted Meghan in June 2016 and spoke on the phone to arrange a first trial session. During my first session with Meghan, I felt able to speak openly and objectively about my depression for the first time in my life. In that open environment and as the weeks went by, I was able to explore and discuss depression in a meaningful way with a focus on root causes, recognising trigger points and developing coping mechanisms. Meghan facilitated an increasing feeling of self-acceptance and helped me to gain a grounded perspective as I began to recognise depressive ruminations and see them for what they are. My sessions with Meghan quickly became integral to my week, we set goals and it was encouraging to see progress against them.

During my period of therapy there were spells where I’d relapse back into depression: calling in sick and not being able to leave the house, sleeping, getting drunk and generally wishing my life away. Through these times Meghan helped to rationalise my thinking and catalyse my reengagement with normal life. Often it was the case, that after a session I would feel able to face my anxieties and return to work following an absence with depression.

Meghan has played a significant role in a healing process that at times I did not think was possible. The knowledge of self and acceptance I have attained through therapy, coupled with pursuing the things in life that matter to me, has established a fortitude I wish to have for the rest of my life. Depression is increasingly becoming a mainstream topic yet I have lived most of my life feeling I shouldn’t talk about it and telling myself that I should ‘get a grip’ or ‘man-up’, but my sessions with Meghan have been an outlet that has helped me to love myself again.

Meghan is a talented therapist who is passionate about her work and invested in helping others succeed. I will be moving from South London soon and subsequently my therapy with Meghan will be coming to an end and now I would like to recognise her important contribution over the past year. I am thankful to have met Meghan and it is made all the sweeter by knowing she will help others like me." M, 2017

Psychotherapy can shed light on our difficulties and offer a space to share things that have been too hard to bear. My role is that of facilitator and reflector with an intention to listen and be curious about your experience in a non-judgemental, non-critical environment. Each person is unique and I am strongly committed to finding a way for us to work together that feels right for you.

I welcome the exploration of imagery, dreams, metaphor and spirituality in the work.

I work with a relational / integrative approach and occasionally draw on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

As well as being a practising psychotherapist, I have worked in a variety of organisations, and am aware of the stress that any of us can face in our work, unemployment or relationships. I enjoy dance, writing and the arts.

Accredited register membership

UK Council for Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have a special interest in working with:

- Couples and relationships, face to face

- Individuals experiencing 'stuckness,' particularly around creative pursuits and relationships

- Online with clients based internationally - I recognise and appreciate the differences and similarities of various aspects of culture, and am sensitive to the 'push-pull' of Eastern/Western values and external realities.

I worked in Greece throughout 2015 with displaced people from (mainly) Syria, Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq & Eritrea, and with asylum seekers in the UK. I have an ongoing curiosity and interest in where our internal sense of 'home' has the potential to be known, met, nourished and cultivated, wherever we are, whatever we may have lost.
