Margaret Parkes Therapy
Welcome to Margaret Parkes Therapy. For over 20 years, I have dedicated myself to the field of systemic psychotherapy and neurological psychotherapy. I am a qualified trainer, graduating from Kingston College specialising in ADHD theory. I also have a specialist diploma in Neurodiversity Informed Psychotherapy.
My therapeutic approach is rooted in person-centered principles, seamlessly intertwined with elements of CBT (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy) and choice theory.
Throughout my career, I have created specialized courses and have had the privilege of training therapists in diverse areas, including co-dependency, narcissism, addiction, and ADHD/AUTISM. Moreover, I am dedicated to raising awareness of the interconnectedness of these subjects.
At Margaret Parkes Therapy, I specialize in addressing a range of complex issues that affect individuals on profound levels:
Coercive Control: I understand the deep impact of coercive control and provide a safe space to explore and heal from these experiences.
Narcissistic Abuse: My approach empowers individuals to regain control, rebuild self-esteem, and heal from the effects of narcissistic abuse.
Neurodiversity: Recognizing the uniqueness of each person's neurodivergent experience, I offer support through strategies to navigate life's challenges.
Other Issues: I tackle a variety of different issues, such as family therapy, family conflict, work and career coaching, social anxiety, bereavement and more.
Counselling & Psychotherapy
I offer a warm and empathetic space for individuals seeking counselling and psychotherapy. Whether you're facing personal struggles, relationship challenges, or mental health issues, my person-centered approach ensures you feel heard, understood, and empowered throughout your therapeutic journey.
Psychoeducational Personal Leadership Skills
In addition to traditional counselling and psychotherapy, I offer psychoeducational programs that empower you to develop essential personal leadership skills. These skills are designed to enhance your self-awareness, self-regulation, and interpersonal relationships, enabling you to thrive in all aspects of your life.

Co-dependency: Gain insight into codependent patterns and learn strategies for healthier relationships.
Narcissism: Understand narcissistic dynamics and develop tools for self-protection and healing.
Addiction: Explore the complexities of addiction and recovery.
ADHD/ASD Awareness: Increase awareness and understanding of ADHD and AUTISM and their impact on individuals and relationships.
“The understanding of neuro difference/ADHD in our family and its connection with the self esteem of individual family members has been truly helpful.
Due to the many dimensions of neuro difference/ADHD it became very apparent during our sessions how in particular it had affected my sons self esteem.
Through Margaret's expertise my son was given the tools to put himself 1st and not look for external validation to feel of worth.
He is now a happier, caring, strong and loving child performing well academically.
I would happily recommend Margaret Parkes to anyone or any family because I know she will guide them through their journey of understanding the beauty of ADHD”
