Martin Kelly, MA, Pg Dip Couns, Reg.MBACP
Are you struggling with life? Feeling overwhelmed by anger? Finding it difficult to communicate with someone you care about? Are you under stress, fighting off depression or suffering from bereavement?
Whatever problem or challenge is affecting you, I can support you to work through it. Contrary to what some people believe, going into counselling is a sign of strength, a sign that you mean to get the help you need to face life's difficulties and overcome them.
As your counsellor, my job is to guide you on your journey of personal discovery. I am here to help you listen to your own wisdom. Sometimes, like DNA, that wisdom needs decoding, but it is my belief that it is always there.
The 'type' of counselling I practise is called Psychosynthesis. This is an holistic model of the person which works to bring together body, mind, feelings and the various roles we play in life into harmony. Through helping us to understand our wounding and to take responsibility for our healing, Pyschosynthesis offers us a way of recognising, accepting and using all the different parts that make up who we are in a conscious, purposeful way. It does not underestimate the pain of crisis or failure but seeks to help us to use it creatively to better understand our path in life and to realise our full potential as human beings.
However, it's you who count, not the counselling model! Whatever you're going through, my job as a counsellor is to be your guide.
My practice is at London Bridge/City and in Westerham, Kent covering Oxted, Sevenoaks and surrounding areas.
