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 express difficult feelings, allow painful memories to be released, look at relationship issues or find ways of living a more fulfilling life. Perhaps you are experiencing anxiety, stress or depression. Maybe you 'simply' want to increase your sense of well-being. Counselling can enable you to reach a clearer understanding about yourself, your relationships & choices.
I offer insights and support with warmth and compassion, drawing from my therapeutic training, my experience as a counsellor and my own journey.
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 also offer mindfulness counselling and teach 8 week mindfulness courses to small groups:
NEW - Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Well-Being - 8 week evening course starting Wednesday September 28 at Lingfield Community Centre. Mindfulness has been shown in clinical research to be helpful in working with conditions such as stress, anxiety, depression - and also for improving general well-being. Course dates Wednesday evenings 28 September - 16 November 7pm - 9pm and one day retreat on Saturday 5 November 10am - 4pm at The Monastery, Crawley Down.
