Are you facing a new crisis? Are early life experiences or past hurts impacting the present? Perhaps anxiety is a crippling daily reality, family conflict relentless or loss overwhelming. Maybe you are just feeling low all the time and you don’t know why.
I’m Marguerite. I’m an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist offering individual therapy to young people and adults. A warm and vibrant therapeutic relationship is at the heart of my work. You will be seen, valued, respected and given a safe space for your story to be told. You can’t change your past, but in the presence of an accepting ‘other’ you can come to terms with your experiences and move forward with a stronger sense of who you are. If you would like to know more about me or how I can help, please get in touch.
How it works
If you are thinking of starting counselling, I would be pleased to hear from you. You can give me a call or send me an email to ask questions about the counselling or the way I work. If you decide you would like to meet then we can arrange a thirty minute initial conversation. This is free of charge and gives you a chance to consider if you would feel comfortable working with me and for us to discuss the best approach for our work together.
I usually offer weekly sessions of 50 minutes each, however fortnightly sessions of longer duration or more regular intensive sessions can sometimes be arranged. Counselling can be short or long term. We will review and decide the length of the therapy during the counselling process.
Fees starting at £55
Spirituality, spiritual abuse and cult recovery
I have particular interest and experience in working with people wishing to consider matters of faith and spirituality as part of the therapeutic work. I will approach this work without judgement and with great sensitivity and respect to your personal beliefs. I work with people of any faith or none.
I am trained to work with people who have experienced spiritual or cultic abuse within high-demand groups, families, cults or one-to-one relationships.
I have completed specialist training (Certificate in Post-Cult Counselling) and receive ongoing supervisory support from Dr Gillie Jenkinson of Hope Valley Counselling. Post-Cult or Spiritual Abuse Counselling involves both therapy and psychoeducation to help and support your recovery.
I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist with over 12 years experience working with adults and young people in individual therapy. I have worked in various counselling agencies and educational settings. I am a registered member of BACP and adhere to their ethical framework and professional conduct procedures. I currently work in private practice and am based in Wimbledon, London. I see clients in person and online.
I use a flexible integration of psychodynamic, person-centred and creative approaches. The therapeutic relationship is based on a real experience of trust and it is most important that my clients genuinely feel seen, valued and respected. As a therapist, I am committed to providing compassionate and thoughtful reflection throughout the counselling process.
How can I help?
I offer a safe and supportive space for us to explore whatever may be troubling you. We will take time to understand how your past relationships or experiences may influence your present life and in particular your feelings towards yourself. We will reflect on how you manage the ups and downs of life and the difficulties you are facing right now. We will work at nourishing self care and I will provide support in your journey of really knowing and being yourself, being free.
