About Me

Counselling for almost 20 years and using ethically sound ethically sound theories and practices, the work I do does not encourage long-term dependency on the counsellor but endeavours to build a therapeutic relationship where growth takes place.

My name is Maggie Leigh and I am an integrative practitioner, which means I provide counselling support in a range of methods dependent upon suitability and choice.

Once determined, we will discuss your best possible outcome and then begin to move forward with your counselling.

I qualified as a Counsellor in 2000 and have since worked with a growing range of needs in voluntary and paid sectors.

I have 13 years experience of working as a schools counsellor covering a wide range of different needs.

GP surgeries, Counselling centres, School Counsellor, support worker in Palliative, therapeutic arts department of Hopsice.

More recently, Pupil Referral Units (Small schools that specialise in teaching children with emotional, social and developmental needs), as a staff Well-being Counsellor.

With extra training, my knowledge base has grown and working with wider varieties of clients, I have gained insight into personal distresses experienced by clients allowing me to tailor work to suit therapeutic needs.
