Margarita ChacinACT practitioner psychologist
Hello! I am Margarita Chacin
I am a psychologist who believes therapy should be a journey of self-discovery and not just a treatment of disorders...
I am a Chartered Health Psychologist based in Horley, Surrey offering Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I believe strongly that psychological interventions can make a significant and meaningful difference to the quality of people’s lives whether they are struggling with mental health difficulties or have just become stuck and want to find new ways to move forward in their personal lives, relationships or work.
I have over 14 years experience working with children and adults in Hospital and Private practice.
In addition to private practice, I also work for the NHS providing psychological interventions to patients with Chronic Pain conditions
Issues often worked with
Types of therapy
I offer an initial individual session for the fee of £100 and £120 in the case of a couple. This will provide us with some time to get to know each other and for you to 'talk' about what brings you to the psychologist at this time.
It will also provide an opportunity for me to answer any questions you might have about psychotherapy and to see if we would like to work together and arrange on-going meetings.
