Depression, anxiety, and personal emotional struggles, are hard to manage on their own. You can feel very lonely in that battle. And so many people either can’t or won’t try therapy. It’s too weird, it’s too expensive, or you’re nervous about trying it. SelfWork can help you begin that healing, or be an addition to the work you’re already doing, as I offer compassionate common-sense directions, ideas and goals toward the changes you want to make. I’ve been a psychologist for over 25 years; and here at SelfWork, I let you in on what I’ve learned from people just like you.

Insightful and practical advice

I discovered SelfWork a few months ago and have now listened to nearly every episode. Dr Margaret's warm, insightful and above all practical approach to mental health issues is a lifeline to those of us who live with chronic anxiety and/or depression. I've also pre-ordered her book 'Perfectly Hidden Depression', due to hit Amazon in November 2019. Although 'hiding' my depression is not so applicable to me, her exploration of how perfectionism can lead to depression developing deep and damaging roots in your life is very relevant. Can't wait to read the book and to learn more about this. Thank you, Dr Margaret, for reaching out to all of us around the world each week and for sharing your wisdom, humour and your own moments of vulnerability about the challenging issues that so many of us face.

Little packages of therapy

This is the first and only podcast about mental health I’ve listened to that doesn’t rehash the generic advice. Each episode is a perfect little package of advice, empathy and support on a different aspect of mental health and wellbeing. There’s no hidden agenda, just a professional with a genuine desire to help others.

Self Forgiveness

Thank you. I have been looking for help to overcome a long standing guilt complex. Fifty years actually. I tried Mindfulness, , counselling etc. However, your explanation of how I have a choice to either let it define me, or live my life NOW was so succinct and true. Thank you again. My daughters told me they forgave me years ago, but I still couldn’t let it go. I thought they might be letting me off the hook, and I didn’t feel worthy of their love or forgiveness. I am very lucky to have their love, and now I will,start to enjoy it again in this moment. Regards and warm wishes Mo Rice
