We Welcome our New Therapist

We would like to welcome our new therapist, Margot O'Donoghue to our expanding team here at Mediation MK. Mental Health is so important and we are sincerely excited to have Margot as part of our team. Why? Here's a little information about her.

After a business-related career and whilst bringing up her family, Margot returned to studying and obtained a BSc (Hon) in Psychology, a Masters Degree in Psychoanalysis and trained as a psychoanalyst with the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research (CFAR). During her training she worked two and half years in Holloway Prison with inmates held for various crimes.

Since qualifying for UKCP registration in 2001, Margot has worked in private practice with clients from all walks of life and ethnic backgrounds. She also was a founder member of the London Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, a non-profit organisation offering counselling and psychotherapy to include low-income clients. Furthermore, she has set up and runs Psychological Services, a referral agency putting people in touch with professionals nationwide.

In her private practice Margot has worked short and long-term with clients suffering from depression, anxiety, lack of self-esteem, relationship issues, stress including post-traumatic stress, anger issues, obsessional behaviour, eating disorders, bereavement, gender issues and loss of sexual desire. Furthermore, clients who have moved abroad can continue their sessions with her online.

Margot is a member of CFAR (Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research), has a Diploma in Gambling Addiction Counselling and a Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. She practices from locations in Regent Street and Barnet, offering both short-term and long-term counselling and psychotherapy.

Inclusive LGBTQ+

We are fully Inclusive – LGBTQ+

We are fully Inclusive - LGBTQ+Inclusive LGBTQ+

We pride ourselves in being fully inclusive. When traversing the complex issues within any relationship is hard; whether this be personal, intimate or professional. There is an abundance of varying emotions coupled with the additional extraneous variables such as children, houses, belongings, pay/bonus and promises.

Mental health problems such as depression, self-harm, alcohol and drug abuse and suicidal thoughts can affect anyone, but they’re more common among people who are LGBTQ+.

Being LGBTQ+ doesn’t cause these problems. But some things LGBTQ+ people go through can affect their mental health, such as discrimination, homophobia or transphobia, social isolation, rejection, and difficult experiences of coming out.

With this in mind, it may add to the volume of what you're dealing with in your situation and where you feel you are able to get support you need.

You may feel adverse to seeking help, as may feel you can come to an agreeable resolution independently, however this is always not the case.

Once you decide to get that needed help, you may feel nervous or apprehensive to speaking to a complete stranger about what is in essence your world and how it is being pulled at the seams.

Please don't worry, we have experienced mediators and therapists who have dealt with all kinds of people with varying situations. You will be welcomed into a safe and open environment where no topic is taboo.

Whether it be the mediation side; where you will find resolution quicker, more effectively and also cheaper than going to a solicitor. Or whether it be the therapeutic side; where know we offer the support you need and deserve.

So please contact us today by clicking here for the details.
