Margaret is a Speech Pathologist and Psychotherapist.
She has worked for more than 20 years as a Speech Pathologist in both the public and private sectors, specialising in difficulties with the voice. Her interest in the links between the human voice and psychology began early in her career. She began studying these links and how psychotherapy could help with the suffering associated with loss of voice.
Margaret completed her Masters degree in Psychotherapy in 2011 and works with adults on a wide range of life issues and challenges.
Margaret has presented her work in Australia and internationally, and has co-authored three academic papers (see below).
