Louise Martin Registered MBACP
The way I work is Person-Centred. This means I believe that each of us has an innate potential for growth but that this can be obstructed by things we meet on our life's path.
My role is to help you recognise what might be getting in your way as well as uncovering your wisdom and resources. I aim to offer a safe, non-judgmental space for you to explore your issues and be understood.
I have specialist training and experience in supporting those with alcohol and drug addictions. I have also worked extensively with carers and with issues such as loss, bereavement, depression, anxiety and abuse.
I am available for appointments in Barrow & Ulverston town centres.
As a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy I adhere to their Ethical Framework. http://www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework/new_ef.php
