She originally trained as a person-centred counsellor over twenty five years ago after working in voluntary and statutory sectors, and subsequently qualifed as a Psychodrama Psychotherapist with the Northern School of Psychodrama.
Her experience as a therapist working with adults includes a number of years within the women’s sector - working with the effects of sexual and domestic violence on women. Margaret has also worked therapeutically with people seeking sanctuary as refugees. As such she has much experience of working with the multiple effects and long term impacts of trauma and in working transculturally. Additionally, she's worked as a therapist in higher education and in various settings through private practice.
Social and political structures in society and how they impact our lives has long been an interest for Margaret. She can offer ways of exploring and understanding the effect of these everyday contexts. Her practice is flexible and holistic, respecting and reflecting that we are all complex and multicultural beings.
With many years experience of offering workshops and training groups around various issues, Margaret enjoys using creative action methods to enhance and deepen learning in training.
Margaret is registered with the UKCP as a Psychotherapist and with the BPA, and is also a qualified and experienced clinical supervisor.
