Martin Muscatt, Dip Therapeutic Counselling, MBACP Register
West End Medical Practice
6 Bendall Mews
After events in my own life led me to experience the positive outcome of seeing a great Counsellor, I was inspired to train to be a Counsellor myself.
My Practice is integrative, which means that I take influence from various schools of Counselling and Psychotherapy. My approach is patient and non-judgemental.
I now have 16 years experience, and have seen Clients of all ages and backgrounds and from many walks of life.
I am experienced in working with Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Relationship Difficulties/ breakups, Work Problems (for example, bullying), Addictions (e.g. gambling, alcohol, drug abuse), Gender issues, Creative blocks.
How Counselling Can Help
Maybe you are having a difficult time in your life and need some support. Problems that have arisen to affect you in this moment may be solvable in the short term, or perhaps the root of the problem lies in the past, possibly dating back from childhood or relationships.
Feelings can be hard to let go of, so may continue to impact on you in the present and may need a longer exploration.
Either way, the support of a qualified Counsellor can help you to find a way to move forward in your life.
Perhaps you find yourself in a dilemma; maybe a decision needs to be made but you feel unable to make it. Any life-changing event such as a bereavement, loss or illness can lead to painful feelings or difficulty accepting circumstances.
My aim in Counselling is to achieve balance by gaining non- judgemental perspective and insight, to enable your own clarity to help you move forward. Whilst exploring the root causes of painful or negative feelings, we work with strategies to help deal with difficulties in a practical way, and to enable you to shift the tendency to feel 'stuck' or unable to make decisions.
In the first session we will assess your individual needs, and formulate a plan for Counselling.
As well as Face-to-Face Counselling, I also offer counselling by telephone or online via Skype.
