Maggie Brown PhD


Registered Psychotherapist

Certified Transactional Analyst

Counselor & Coach

Psychology Researcher & Lecturer

I offer 40 years of experience & training, deep personal experiences & a sense of humour.


I approach my work with a deep respect for every story.

Life has been interesting so far! My own journey has included ups, downs & everything in between. Curiosity drives me … often to places I wouldn’t have dreamed of going!

There are many valuable things I’ve learned along the way. Perhaps the most important thing I’ve learned is that positive change is possible … anytime.


Taught & mentored by amazing people.

I have been trained & mentored by some fabulous teachers.  I thank them for providing me with skills in:

  • Transactional Analysis
  •  Cognitive-behavioural Therapy
  • Interpersonal Neurobiology
  • Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP)
  • Psychodynamic therapy
  • Trauma Release
  • Affect Regulation Therapy
  • Vipassana Meditation
  • Horticulture Therapy
  • & more...

Much of my work is with people who are highly sensitive, curious, creative, quirky & ‘slightly unusual’. Neurodiversity has always intrigued me, and this is where my background as a neuroscientist comes in handy! I have particular interest & expertise in working with ADHD, adult giftedness, & similar ‘exceptionalities’. (assessed or not).

I use a neuro-informed psychodynamic approach, which means that  I take into account past & present, with the aim of working toward more awareness, new understanding, improved skills & a healthier future.  My work is strongly trauma-informed –  therefore very safe.

My aim is always to be friendly & to offer a comfortable & supportive therapeutic environment. A safe container – an honest and reliable relationship – is key.  As is a wacky sense of humor at times!



What we can achieve together

I am pleased to offer my experience and love of people to you. I have trained and worked for 40 years, across the fields of psychology, therapy, counselling, neurorehabilitation and coaching/training.
