What People Are Saying
“Every time I finished my session with Margaret I felt as though slowly but surely a massive weight was lifting off my shoulders. I cannot express how grateful and thankful I am to her. She taught me coping strategies for when I was becoming overwhelmed with certain emotions. The level of support and healing she provided me with was outstanding and it has changed my life for the better.”Susan
“I was very new to the idea of counselling though very open to it. Even still, I was terribly self-conscious and talking about myself was not in my nature. But I knew I needed to talk, there were issues that I was going through that I was just not able to figure out by myself. Margaret put me at ease straight away, had a wonderful ability to make me question what I was saying and then allow me to talk it out until I found the answer. I made huge strides during my time seeing Margaret and I came out on the other side practically a new person – certainly one that had found peace.”Sinead
“When I first started working with Margaret I struggled greatly with every simple everyday tasks. I couldn’t hold down a job at one stage and I had some very unhealthy relationships with people. My biggest issue was my anxiety was so out of control I could barely function most days. The best thing I could’ve ever done for myself at that time was to start counselling with Margaret. She truly understands and she has ways of helping you to realise so much about yourself, why things are the way they are in your life and most importantly how to make positive changes.”Michael

Meet Your Counsellor and Therapist
Counsellor and Psychotherapist
I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. I completed my certificate qualification with PCI College and gained my Dip. in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Middlesex University. I then decided to complete the B.Sc (Hons) in Counselling and Psychotherapy in IICP. This incorporated additional approaches such as
- Group Therapy
- Family Therapy
- Child and Adolescent Therapy
- Integrative and Pluralistic Approaches
Prior to working full time as a therapist I worked for 14 years in the community and voluntary sector. I managed an outreach programme for men moving on from emergency homeless accommodation in Dublin. This gave me a deep understanding of addiction and mental health issues. I also managed outreach, mentoring and peer support programmes in the disability sector.
Drug use among young people is an issue that is close to my heart and I worked on education programmes for parents who are concerned about the impact of drugs on their children.
