Simply the best

“I have had the privilege of knowing and working with Maggy as a professional supervisor from her very beginning as a Counsellor, and so I have been able to view the development of her career throughout. 

She has always impressed me with her deeply caring approach to her clients, backed up by diligence and skill, self-motivated learning and a very high ethical standard. If a personal friend or member of my family were to need counselling, I would not hesitate to recommend Maggy’s care.

Increased sense of personal worth

"The benefits of supervision are well recognised to be an essential part of reflective therapy to ensure good practice for the counsellor. Margaret has not only been essential in ensuring that I have felt supported in this, but has provided emotional support as well as information and guidance that has greatly increased my sense of personal worth and I feel has benefitted my counselling work."

Highly recommended

“Thoughtful and professional delivery.

Excellent concise instruction as ever from a talented and insightful mentor.

Mindfulness allows me the opportunity to distract myself when I experience overwhelming anxiety.

Very approachable and sound advice

“I met Maggy last year at a networking event and found her to be very approachable, we got chatty and within minutes I felt so comfortable with her that I found myself telling her somethings that I wouldn’t generally tell anyone except on a need to know basis.

She listened and gave me some very sound advice which has stayed with me since. I would certainly recommend her for Counselling & Psychotherapy.”
