Maggie Haines Ad.Dip.Cp Dip. Hyp CS Dip.PC

Hello and welcome to my page, I’m Maggie a qualified Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist. From time to time life throws us certain situations where we are not always in control. We can’t always find the solution alone and become confused and out-of-our-depth? Sometimes we struggle to make sense of what has or is going on! Or you may be facing change or coming to terms with a new stage in your life, maybe, the past keeps coming up and haunts you? Whatever your difficulties there is always a solution even if it doesn’t feel like it at the moment!

I too have experienced life’s difficulties and had to face some challenges along the way, bringing me into this line of work. I enjoy being with people, for me I’m paying back by offering you a space to explore and discuss your concerns freely and without judgements. As an Integrative therapist I offer a calm environment, a space to explore your cares and concerns in a relaxing, friendly, safe and highly confidential environment.

stepping-stones

Intergrative Counselling, Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy

Originally, different schools of therapy developed that were based on the theories of particular pioneers. Important examples of this would be: the psychodynamic approach based on Freud’s insight that adult behaviour is influenced by patterns from childhood. The person Centered approach is based on Rogers’ insight into the psychological conditions that promote growth. Counselling has emerged into a sophisticated therapy – From back in the day with Freud & Jung – Psychiatrists v Patients in a sterile, clinical environment, whereas, Rogers brought about Talking Therapies relaxing the relationship between the Client and the therapist into a nurturing and empathetic approach which is where we are today.

However, a large body of research has shown that the most important factor in successful therapy is the quality of the therapeutic relationship rather than the particular theories held by the therapist.

This has led to the development of wider more inclusive approaches in counselling and psychotherapy i.e. integrative approaches. In general, integrative therapists focus on developing a good therapeutic relationship and they draw on a range of methods and approaches (such as the previously mentioned psychodynamic, CBT and person-centred approaches) dependent on the different and changing needs of the individual client.

‘Counselling’ and ‘Psychotherapy’

..are standard terms for talking therapies and these terms are often used interchangeably. Sometimes therapists make a distinction between these two terms and when they do, ‘counselling’ usually refers to short term focussed work on specific issues whereas ‘psychotherapy’ would indicate longer term or open-ended therapeutic work.
