About Me

I’m Marguerite Schultz, Clinical Psychologist, Group Private Practice Clinic owner and most importantly wife of 20 years and mum to three gorgeous boys!

My life’s work has been dedicated to the field of psychology, where my passion lies specifically in helping people to find their freedom and restore their joy. In my work, I come across countless people who are doing their best, earnestly applying themselves morning to night in the domain of life they find themselves in, yet so many of these amazing people are weighted down by stress, worries, unresolved pain or broken relationships and as such, they are not enjoying the benefits of living what I call “their best life”.

We all long to truly claim that we live a life of joy, happiness and contentment yet many people sadly don’t see their true value or invest in building the life that they deserve. My hope is therefore to come alongside people and help them to shift this stuckness and start to grow, build and thrive.

Through the mechanism of psychology, I have the privilege of helping people to rebuild their worlds in the places it may be hurting or broken and help them to move towards a life of flourishing! I have made it my mission to help people to live the life they deserve, a life they can be proud of!

I am so glad that I get to partner with people in their journey so if you are here reading this now, then welcome and thank you for taking the time to look at this site but more importantly, well done for taking the time to invest in yourself and your future and to check in on your overall wellbeing and ask yourself “How am I really going and am I living my best life?”

“As a fellow psychologist and mum, I have to say, I love your work!!

The way you normalize those difficult Mum moments is profoundly helpful. And the way you simplify key concepts into little take home messages, strategies and tools is brilliant”

– Bianca P, Australia

“I just wanted to share that I’ve been doing Margie’s The Happy Mum Formula and have been loving every minute of it.

As a clinical psychologist and mum of three, I was just blown away at the gold contained within it. In my opinion every mum should gift this course to themselves or if you know a mum this would be the perfect gift.

Margie speaks to the heart of what every mum needs whilst providing practical action steps along the way. So so so worth it. Thanks Margie for putting this together for us mums.”

– Gerda M, Australia
