Hello, I'm Margaret and I work as a couple's and individual counsellor and psychotherapist, as well as a psychological astrologer and mediator. My practice is currently online and at City Therapy in Dame street. As a psychotherapist, mediator and psychological astrologer, I wear three separate hats! As a counsellor and psychotherapist, my approach integrates a humanistic and person centred approach, with psychodynamic, systems and emotionally focussed therapy. I view my role as being a facilitator in your inner journey of self discovery. As a psychological astrologer I draw upon Jungian psychology, to assist you to remember who you are, including your core inner strengths and resources. As a mediator my task is to support you as a couple and family to create a communication bridge in the midst of change. Training: I have a Masters in Clinical Social Work, (FSU), a B.A. in Counselling and Psychotherapy, (IICP), a B.A. Mod. in Sociology, (TCD), a Diploma in Psychological Astrology (CPA, London) and a Diploma in Family and Workplace Mediation, (MII).
I have also done training in Group Analysis, Dreamtending, Emotion Focussed therapy and Emotionally Focussed Therapy for Couples, as well as in Past Life Regression with Dr. Brian Weiss.
I am bilingual in English/Italian and have lived for long stretches in the UK and the USA, (Hawai'i, and LA), as well as my native Ireland, where I am currently based.
My work experience started many years ago when I completed my MSW in the USA and worked in mental health on my return to Dublin. A few years later I moved to the UK where I taught Social Work and counselling skills at the University of the West of England, as well as running anti-discrimination workshops.
Over the past 35 years I have worked in the fields of adoption and fostering, addiction, domestic violence and child abuse. I particularly enjoy working with relationship dynamics!
My story continues - as does yours...
