Margot Broug Holistic Counselling
Hi, I’m Margot.

Firstly, I have over 15 years experience as a holistic counsellor. In that time I have worked with depression, anxiety, major life changes (voluntary and involuntary), addiction and couples etc. I use a range of psychotherapeutic modalities such as meditation, mindfulness, Core Evolution; Body-Oriented Psychotherapy and Reiki. Besides helping people with the symptoms of unhappiness, I support people to build and live the life of their dreams in many practical and creative ways

About Margot & Living The True You

About Me

My own journey has involved many big changes, risks, hurdles and growth. I moved to Australia by myself from the Netherlands in 1992. I started married life 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 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 myself to live holistically, authentically and creatively therefore continues to grow my skill and insight which directly flows into my work with clients.

About Living The True You

To live holistically and authentically is to express who you are; body, mind and spirit in your day to day in a way that is fulfilling and easy. By exploring the deeper you, foundational to your life and being, you move through difficulties towards the life you choose for yourself. In the process you use your particular talents. You learn from your own life and grow towards a deeper and joyful experience of what it is to be you. Living True To You enables an expansion of your self-understanding and awareness in many creative, practical and intuitive ways.


Margot, Thank you so much for helping me come to terms with a bunch of issues that have gnawed away at my self-worth for years since adolescence. You skilfully and gently guided me to discover for myself that these particular monkeys on my back were not mine to own and that I could let them go. Let them go I did and it has transformed me and the relationship with my partner in very positive ways. We were both astonished at the speed and scale of this transformation and we are very grateful for your help in achieving this wonderful outcome.

I went to Margot for a number of counselling sessions when I felt challenged by my life situation mentally and spiritually. What I really liked in Margot's approach was that it was holistic and that she very creative in her methods. She helped me to "reunite" heart and brain and helped me to gain another level of awareness for my situation, always without judgement. If you are open to self exploration and committed to create change, then Margot is the right person to support you.

I have been a client of Margot’s for around 2 years, and in that time, she has been an incredible guide, helping me release blockages, relax into life and feel overall more peaceful. After each session with Margot, I come away feeling a deep sense of calm and peace. She is very intuitive and dedicated to helping others unlock internal secrets and desires. I look forward to every session with joy!

Margot holds such a warm, safe and nurturing space. I always felt welcomed and encouraged to explore things that would arise for me from session to session. Margots’ approach is both dynamic and soothing, as well as highly creative and responsive in adapting to and honoring my personal process. Working across many modalities including counselling, movement, visualization, reiki and sandplay created an alchemy of healing that I feel grateful to have experienced and would recommend to anyone.

Margot helped me through a busy time, guiding me to find more clarity. She uses an array of different techniques I found helpful, in a peaceful environment.

Couple Counselling
I came to counselling with Margot because my partner and I have been fighting a lot. Not only did she help us learn how to communicate more effectively with each other, she helped us as individuals, teaching us new ways to understand ourselves. In just a few sessions I have learned many new techniques to help become more grounded and connected within myself and with my partner. Margot's presence is calming and both my partner and I felt at ease talking with her about our troubles. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to gain a better understanding of themselves, and to learn better ways of communicating with those close to you. I look forward to my next session with Margot!
