When I started seeing Margaret I was in one of the worst mental states of my life. I was very confused and had no understanding of what was wrong. Throughout my sessions with Margaret I learnt so much about myself, my emotions, trauma and reactions to situations. She helped guide me through a difficult period with kindness and patience. Therapy helped me so much with getting my emotions regulated and understanding myself on a deeper level. Margaret’s compassionate and understanding nature always made me feel very comfortable and I will carry her advice with me forever.Aisling Age 18

I first met Margaret at a time when I was overwhelmed by stress in my life. It was important to me to firstly understand whey I was feeling the way I was and then to learn how to make positive changes to turn things around. Margaret delivered on this request in spades. I could see from the first session that Margaret has a genuine interest in the subject matter and has a very warm and empathetic personality. This encouraged me to open-up during sessions and have an honest conversation without fear of judgement. As a result, I now have a much stronger sense of self awareness and have been practising techniques which have significantly reduced the stress I experience daily. I would highly recommend Margaret to anybody who is considering counselling. It will be a fantastic investment in yourself, and Margaret’s professionalism will ensure that you get is suited to you and your needs. Niall Age 31

Margaret’s well-rounded approach to helping me to get to know my inner child has allowed me to better manage my feelings of anxiety and low self-esteem. Her work on boundaries has helped me in knowing when saying ‘no’ is the most emotionally healthy choice for me. The therapy process is so comfortable due to Margaret’s welcoming, accessible and kind nature.Emma age 27 

I started working with Margaret over a year ago. I was struggling with the after effects of a traumatic event and the general chaos that the pandemic had caused to my family and I. Margaret helped me realise, not only my needs but also my worth. I have gained so much knowledge from our sessions – developing coping strategies and also setting boundaries in both my professional and personal life. Margaret has a wonderful energy, she is professional but also has a warmth that creates a safe and non judgemental space. The time I have spent with Margaret has been invaluable and I would recommend her as a therapist in a heartbeat.Rachel Age 32 

Psychotherapy with Margaret is the single best investment I have ever made in myself. I had tried numerous different psychotherapists/counsellors in the past but never felt they truly understood me until I met Margaret. Everything I have shared with her is validated and understood, and she always has a way to work through it. No problem is too big or too small. I feel so comfortable and safe in sharing all of my thoughts and fears with Margaret. Every single session has taught me so much about myself. I feel like a lighter person each week. I have so much more empathy towards myself and towards those around me. When I look back to where I was before I started psychotherapy I cannot believe how far I’ve come and how much I’ve changed my outlook on life. I feel so proud of myself that I’ve got to a better place, and am so grateful to Margaret. I genuinely cannot recommend Margaret enough. Melanie Age 24

Margaret taught me how to take more control over my life. By challenging negative thinking patterns and learning to make better decisions, my anxiety and depression have been reduced significantly. Nothing I tried before ever worked. I would highly recommend Engage Counselling.Paul Age 28 

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. I had tried other counselling services and never once felt the slightest bit better. After a few sessions with Margaret I could feel a big change in myself already. 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

Thanks to Margaret I have so much knowledge about myself and so many tools to use to keep myself grounded and in control of my anxiety and depression.Patricia

My life has improved so much as a result of attending counselling that there are no words to describe it. Margaret offered me the support and guidance I needed. I really highly recommend working with her.Peter

Engage counselling was a great service from start to finish. I always felt welcome and knew I was in a safe environment to open up. It really helped my situation and I would highly recommend.Jane

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. Now, today I value that peace above all else and I have Margaret to thank for that. I would not hesitate to recommend and should the need ever arise again I know who I’ll be calling first.Sinead

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
