About Margot

Hi, I’m Margot.

I’d like to tell you a bit more about myself so you can get a better idea of what kind of person I am and what kind of therapist I can be for you.

Firstly, I have over 10 years experience as a holistic counsellor. In that time I have worked with depression, anxiety, major life changes (voluntary and involuntary) and couples. I use a range of psycho-therapeutic modalities such as meditation, mindfulness, body-oriented psychotherapy (Core Evolution Therapy) and Reiki. Besides helping you with your symptoms of depression, I can also help you overcome the core cause of the depression and unhappiness. I will support you to build and live the life of your dreams in many practical and creative ways.

My passion

My passion is to live wholeheartedly. This includes my expression of self as a mother of 2, a partner, an artist, writer and piano player, friend, counsellor and business woman. My writing covers articles on living philosophy, metaphorical stories of universal life experience and writing on the practicalities of everyday living and being. https://www.margotbroug.com.au/stories/

My Journey

My own journey has involved many big changes, risks, hurdles and growth. I moved to Australia by myself from the Netherlands in 1992. I got married that same year and lived in Victoria for the next 18 years. I struggled with depression and anxiety before and after the birth of my first child, which was compounded by a heart condition and multiple procedures to have this rectified.
It is through these experiences that I learned to live from the inside out; through The Will Of My Heart. I found ways out of anxiety, depression, emptiness and loneliness by always looking inside, particularly into my own heart. This journey of following my passion is what lead me and my family to move to Newcastle in 2009, the place I am very happy to call home.I know what it takes to move through and beyond unhappiness from my own experience and from my experience as a therapist. I continue to be passionate and continue to grow my experience in helping others do the same.

My commitment to you

My commitment to living wholeheartedly and creatively therefore continues to grow my skill and insight which directly flows into my work with clients.

Living The True You

To live the TRUE YOU is to live by The Will Of Your Heart –  to live authentically; expressing who you are; creating a day to day life that is fulfilling and easeful to the body, mind and spirit. All of who you are includes your talents, your past, any difficulties you are experiencing, dreams you hold for your future…. And, most importantly that deepest part of you fundamental to your life and being.  By exploring these aspects of yourself, you move through difficulties towards the life you envision for yourself. In the process you hone your talents and learn from your own life to grow towards a deeper and joyful experience of what it is to be you. Living the True You enables an expansion of your self-understanding and awareness in many creative, practical and intuitive ways.
