Martin Cox MSc. MBACP (Accred.)
020 7096 8854 / 07985 923434
I am a registered and accredited member of BACP and a therapist with many years of training and experience in helping people with a diverse range of difficulties. I am also a BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist.
The therapy I offer is generally short-term and I work integratively drawing on my knowledge of a broad collection of approaches. I respect the uniqueness of every client and aim to tailor the therapy to each client's specific needs. The flexibility of approach extends to how sessions are structured and, working collaboratively with each client, we can establish: session length, frequency, intervals, location (home visits may be available if appropriate) and times.
As well as providing a counselling service to individuals, I am also a relationship therapy specialist who has worked with individuals (children, young people and adults), couples and families since starting practicing with Relate in 2003.

Private practice: I have worked in private practice for several years, offering therapeutic assistance for a very broad range of issues. As well as client self referrals, I welcome referrals from GPs, EAPs and business.
Relate: I was a relationship counsellor for 7 years until April 2010, working with individuals, couples & families experiencing relationship difficulties. Under Relate's contract with West Herts PCT, I have also provided time-limited counselling to individual patients referred by GP surgeries, often suffering with mild to moderate anxiety and/or depression. I also worked with a local authority in setting up a project and providing therapeutic mediation and counselling to people at risk of homelessness. I have more recently helped to set up family counselling projects in local Children's Centres.
The Place2Be: I was a School Project Manager, based in a large London primary school for 5 years. Having set up the project from scratch, I provided therapeutic support to pupils, teachers and parents, as well as managing and supervising a team of counsellors.
NHS: I currently work as a High Intensity CBT Therapist in primary care. I have experience of working in several primary and secondary care settings.
