Ruth Martin MBACP (Accred)
As an experienced counsellor I offer support and a non-judgmental space for you to talk and to be listened to. You may want to explore difficult feelings, look at relationship issues or find ways of living a more fulfilling life. Perhaps you are experiencing anxiety, stress or depression and would like someone to be there with you, to support you and help you to find a way through to self-acceptance and contentment. Counselling can enable you to reach a clearer understanding about yourself and your life, improving your self-confidence and the way you value yourself.
I offer insights and support with warmth and compassion, drawing from my therapeutic training, my experience as a counsellor and my own journey through pain and happiness.
I work with a variety of counselling models and techniques, exploring what works for you, on both a long-term and short-term basis. I am also experienced in mindfulness and include aspects of this in counselling if appropriate.
