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.

The COVID-19 pandemic has likely brought many changes to how you live your life, and with it uncertainty, altered daily routines, financial pressures and social isolation. You may worry about getting sick, how long the pandemic will last, whether you’ll lose your job, and what the future will bring. Information overload, rumors and misinformation can make your life feel out of control and make it unclear what to do.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, you may experience stress, anxiety, fear, sadness and loneliness. And mental health disorders, including anxiety and depression, can worsen.

Surveys show a major increase in the number of people who report symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression during the pandemic, compared with surveys before the pandemic. Some people have increased their use of alcohol or drugs, thinking that can help them cope with their fears about the pandemic. In reality, using these substances can worsen anxiety and depression.

People with substance use disorders, notably those addicted to tobacco or opioids, are likely to have worse outcomes if they get COVID-19. That’s because these addictions can harm lung function and weaken the immune system, causing chronic conditions such as heart disease and lung disease, which increase the risk of serious complications from COVID-19.

For all of these reasons, it’s important to learn self-care strategies and get the care you need to help you cope.
