MARY McILROY Counsellor in London Bridge,
the City of London & Muswell Hill

Counsellor London Bridge, SE1 & Muswell Hill, North London, N10


Are you looking for an experienced, registered and well qualified counsellor?

I'm committed to providing the type of therapy for someone I love.

My Special Strengths :

One of my main areas of Strength is working with Anxiety:
I believe there is no reason for anyone to continue to feel anxious or depressed and also believe that negative situations can be used as a catalyst to push you forward and even motivate you toward achieving the lasting changes you desire. As a person with epilepsy, I had to learn how to turn a disability into an advantage and how to cope with self-esteem issues, relationship difficulties, stress, panic attacks and anxiety. In addition I have studied Mindfulness and Meditation which I practise daily and often introduce in sessions to help calm anxiety and ease depression.

I strive to help people with anxiety disorders achieve a calm confidence and those with relationship difficulties to find a heart-felt resolution, in addition:
I can also help those who are in crisis or have general depression, anxiety, panic attacks, stress, with life or career coaching, confidence or relationship issues, and sexual dysfunction. I can help them figure out ways to resolve their difficulties, traumas, gain happiness and pursue life goals.

Another of My Strengths lies in working with relationship struggles, areas such as loneliness, difficulty getting past the first date, low self-esteem or finding a suitable partner may be causing you anxiety, depression or even issues such as panic attacks and social phobia.

Such relationship problems can surface at any time, within a relationship or even when single. These difficulties can show up in a variety of ways including uncertainty, distrust, anger, feeling like you are being controlled or causing you to repeat patterns in the areas of work, family, relationship and love life.

In our counselling I help you to become more confident, productive, happy and pleased with yourself. As a result you are more likely to become more genuine, reach towards your potential, more co-operative, authentic and more sought after by others.

Counselling also helps to examine and modify any long-standing patterns that may interfere with a client's functioning, relationship and sexuality issues and quality of life. I work as a counsellor in London Bridge and North London. I also offer counselling in Muswell Hill.

Do you want to boost your confidence?

Linking Thinking with Confidence:
Tell yourself
The people who look beautiful are the same as you, the difference is they tell themselves they look good, that shines through.
The people who say the most profound witty things as the same as you, they are letting go and being who they are.
The people who appear confident and relaxed are no different, they push themselves through fearful situations and tell themselves they can make it. The people who are successful are the same as you, they tell themselves go ahead and develop your gifts and talents, set goals.
We are all the same as the people on TV. It's what we tell ourselves that makes the difference.
So give yourself a big hug, tell yourself you are alright, you can be wonderful. Is a change of thinking needed? Anon

Are you looking for life or career coaching?

My approach:

If you want a counselor who sits back saying “tell me more about this…….” or ‘Uh huh” this is not me.

If you want a highly intellectual type of therapist who spends multiple sessions analyzing dream’s then I am not the right person for you.

I am an active counsellor who gets involved in therapy. One who gives advice, homework, reviews and feedback on progress.

I will answer most questions as I believe counselling is a collaborative process.

I know that endless talking about the past does not promote growth or change and I want you to achieve change.

Many people have excellent insights into their issues yet are still stuck,
they may need a powerful psychological jump start to help them move forward.

Our work together will promote this movement, counselling is not a forever process. You should feel and see change happening.

I know I can help you and hope that you will feel and enjoy the benefits of working with me. Be aware, I will give homework and expect you to practice between sessions. My counselling involves more than dialogue, I will review and together we monitor change and expectations.

I offer brief and long term counselling in Muswell Hill, North London n10 and I work as a counsellor in London Bridge, Tooley St, SE1.
My therapy service is easily accessible within the city of London, More London Place, Canary Wharf, Bankside and Westminster.

Why not meet for an initial session?
Start, just see how it goes and you may be pleasantly surprised.
I can offer day or evening counselling sessions, flexibility in session dates is possible.
My fees are very reasonable considering my experience and qualifications.
Get in touch, there are no obligations, email me at: [email protected]

I use a variety of methods to help access self-insight through activities such as: dialogue, art, imagery or role-playing. During our work together we will strive to identify ineffective patterns of thinking and behavior and develop healthier, more effective alternatives. Within a safe environment, I will encourage you to take risks, try new things, and practice the change you hope to achieve. All aspects of the counselling process are designed to help you experience real behavioral change and eliminate the problems that impede healthy relationships. If you require anxiety counselling or have other difficulties contact me at:

Together we will look at your life history and the reasons why you are continuing with the behaviour which contributes to your anxiety, low self- esteem, relationship issues, depression and misery. Remember, no situation is too difficult to work on. Every person is unique and I tailor make a bespoke plan that fits your specific needs. I strive to offer the highest quality care and I consult with leading specialists in confidence for my clients in areas such as anxiety, relationships, stress, trauma, sadness, loneliness, panic, bereavement, divorce. In brief:

*We get a clear picture of your difficulties.
*We discuss techniques and strategies to help you when in need.
*You realise you have a choice of behaviours and implement your choice of strategy.
*You realise counselling is a commitment and you have the responsibility for making changes.
*We review your progress, successes and difficulties and what further changes are possible.
*You decide if you have achieved your goal and how much more counselling is necessary (if any).
