Briony Martin MA (Cantab), MBACP Accred., Dip. Sup.
Counselling in Marlborough and Swindon:
If you are in need of counselling support, you have come to the right place. I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, registered and accredited with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) offering a warm, confidential and professional counselling service.
Asking for help can be hard, but it is possible to address even the most deep-seated problems. I work in a warm and empathic way, shaping the therapy to your particular needs. I offer an introductory session in which I can listen to what you need and you can decide whether I am the right therapist for you. We can then agree to work together short or long-term, reviewing our progress along the way.
I offer regular weekly appointments in lovely rooms in Marlborough and Swindon, working with a wide range of clients of all ages and backgrounds, and I am experienced in dealing with many different issues.
Please get in touch if you are currently struggling or in pain, need extra support or would like to understand yourself better. Taking the first step of contacting a counsellor is very brave but can be immensely worthwhile. I look forward to hearing from you.
I offer a warm, professional and confidential supervision service for counsellors and psychotherapists from my base in Marlborough. I have an Advanced Specialist Diploma in Relational Supervision from Severn Talking Therapy and am particularly interested in the therapeutic relationship within supervision. I offer regular monthly 1.5 hour supervision sessions through 12 months of the year, with extra time negotiable if required.
