My name is Margaret and I am a Senior Clinical Psychologist with diverse interests and many passions.
I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist registered with The Psychological Society of Ireland. I have graduated with Masters in Clinical Psychology in 2003 from the University of Opole, Poland. During my post graduate training and clinical specialization I have been working with children and adults in mental health, neurodevelopmental and educational settings, where I was responsible for diagnosis and therapy of developmental and mental health disorders, as well as emotional, behavioural and social difficulties.
I have opened Dr. Margaret’s Clinic in July 2008, where I provide therapeutic support to young people and their families, as well as clinical assessments for both children and adults.
My therapeutic approach is eclectic and integrative, and I believe that only by understanding a person, whether it is a child or an adult, in the holistic context of their environment, lifestyle, relationships, diet, sleep pattern, physical activity etc. , as well as neuroscience, biology and transgenerational history, I can either choose the best therapy programme that is tailored to their personality and situation or provide them with a thorough assessment that takes into account their experiences, personal history, strengths and challenges.
In my free time I love reading, hiking, travelling and being in nature.
I love spending time with my family, cooking, eating and watching movies.
I love art, history, music and writing.
I also love coming to the clinic early in the morning, before the busy day starts, and reading or just being with my own thoughts, daydreaming, meditating or preparing myself for the day ahead.
I am blessed with the most amazing and loving husband, independent, compassionate, courageous and creative daughters and 2 little yorkies, Chloe and Daisy, that bring endless joy and teach me about the power of unconditional love every day.
