Putting your trust in someone isn’t something any of us take lightly. Even that first call or email can be daunting.
Here are some things that my clients have written.
I asked them if they would be willing to talk to you – someone looking at my site and wondering how to make this decision. I hope these help…
Working with Maggie has been a joy! She seemed to know exactly what to do at every moment. This has truly been the best thing I’ve done for myself.
When I contacted Maggie I had no idea what to expect. This was new for me. For years I’d hoped that one day I’d understand myself – my differences, but frankly I’d given up. I don’t know what prompted me to contact Maggie, but I’m forever grateful that I did. I have my life back and I’m looking forward to my future.
My teachers and parents said I was depressed. Maybe I was. But mainly I was bored. My parents wanted me to play sports but I really don’t like sports. Maggie saw some of the things I do on the computer, and called me an artist. I hadn’t thought of that!
I always felt safe and secure in the knowledge that Maggie imparted to me. I learnt so much during the time I spent with her, and I am so grateful to have found her.
When I was brave and chose a new therapist, Maggie, I finally realised what it meant to feel understood. Never before has someone truly “got me” in all my crazy mad glory.
Maggie has a way about her that makes me feel safe, secure, and cocooned in reassurance. In just a year I came to understand the intensity of my emotions, and learn ways to soothe my nervous system that tries to run on high octane 24/7.
I saw Maggie when I was struggling with all of the issues that go along with a new relationship and blending a family. I had to address my own stuff and figure out what belonged to others. I found Maggie’s professional experience so reassuring. I knew immediately I had found the right person to help me navigate the challenges.
Every day I use what Maggie has been showing me. Every day I feel more and more “well”, while at the same time delighting in the fact that I was never “unwell”. I’ve only ever been myself; and now that I’m so much more in tune with myself, with my own inner alien and all that completes me, life feels manageable, and even…..wonderful.
I’m learning to think of my life in completely new ways – finally. My suggestion to anyone is . . . do this now. Don’t wait. Maggie makes it feel safe and believe it or not, even fun.
The first thing I really remember hearing from Maggie was “You are not a problem to be fixed”. I couldn’t believe a therapist was saying that. I’d had every diagnosis you can think of. I’m slowly beginning to understand what she meant.
We’d pretty much given up on our relationship. I think we went to Maggie to have someone referee our fights. To our surprise that wasn’t what happened. She actually helped us learn how to listen, and not get so angry. We’re still working on it. And we’re still together.
Maggie’s expertise meant that we were able to quickly pinpoint the issues and work on resolution. She was very generous with her time and when my partner and I were in crisis she was there for us.
I’ve seen a lot of counselors over the years. But Maggie is different. It took her exactly one session to ‘get’ me. All of me. I didn’t know that was possible.
