Alan Martin (BSc Hons, MBACP)
Hello, my name is Alan.
I am a Humanistic & Integrative therapist.
I offer short or long term counselling in the Nottingham area.
Choosing counselling can be hard but I believe that the counselling room can become a safe place where life can be discussed without judgement.
I am passionate about my work and aim to provide a positive counselling experience.
Through my own experiences of therapy I have learned that it is the authentic relationship between the two of us that leads to growth and change. Within my relationship with you I will aim to be genuine, safe, accepting, open, imaginative, respectful and inclusive.
I have specific experience working with adults who have experienced stress, depression and trauma. I also have vast experience working with clients with autism & learning difficulties.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have graduated form the Sherwood Institute in Nottingham where I have obtained a BSC (hons) in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I am a volunteer at a charitable organisation within Nottingham centre.
I have many years previous experience in social care where I have specialised in the support of adults with autism & learning difficulties.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Areas of counselling I deal with
