Margot believes that, given the right conditions and support, everybody can access and utilise their own internal resources to deal with psychological, emotional or behavioural difficulties. She is a Registered Clinical Psychologist, French-qualified, who works with children, young people and their families dealing with a range of difficulties. She also works with adults and couples.
These difficulties can include ASD, ADHD, anxiety, low mood, depression, trauma, school/work-related issues. Margot treats peer relationship difficulties, difficulties associated with parenting, family/couple life, challenging behaviours, and emotional regulation difficulties, including addictions, self-harm and eating disorders.
When one engages in psychological therapy, one undertakes a process of change, which can be challenging and requires close cooperation with the therapist. It is therefore essential that you find someone you trust and feel comfortable with, to engage in this journey together.
Margot is an experienced and highly skilled Clinical Psychologist. She offers a caring, confidential, and collaborative environment. This environment allows you to feel safe in revealing and tackling the experiences, thoughts, and feelings that have led to stress and difficulties in your life.
Margot obtained her Bachelor (BA) and Master (MA) degrees at the University of Lyon II. She completed a University Degree in Clinical Criminology at the University of Lyon I (France). Margot has experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families, both individually and in groups. She has also worked in a wide range of settings: primary and secondary school, alcoholism and addiction institutions, psychotherapeutic nursing homes, prisons, and private clinics. Alongside her private practice, she works part-time in a specialist school for children and young people with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). She offers therapy in both French and English.
Margot’s approach is integrative and developed according to your needs. Her approach draws on a range of theories and techniques. These include psychodynamic (psychoanalytic) therapy, play therapy, narrative therapy, person-centred therapy, solution-focused therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT). She also provides Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD) screenings for children, adolescents and adults. She works in close collaboration with Consultant Psychiatrists at the Surrey Healthcare Clinic.
ASD screenings (children, young people and adults)
If you are not sure whether a comprehensive ASD assessment is indicated, you may benefit from a preliminary screening before deciding whether to proceed with a full evaluation, which is more costly and time consuming.
This screening step provides important indicators for your consideration, but it is not in itself a diagnostic process. It gives you an indication of whether it is likely that you may meet the thresholds for diagnosis.
If appropriate and wished, you need to progress to a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation – longer, more detailed and complex – to establish a firm diagnosis and receive further recommendations on treatment and other forms of support.
This initial review takes up to an hour and a half and includes a discussion of the difficulties that make you think an Autism Spectrum Condition may be present, and testing using standard screening questionnaires.
The cost for this screening consultation, including written report provision is £350 (online) / £380 (face to face).
