F. (Faye) Martin MBACP, Dip Coun
Hello my name is Faye, welcome to my profile. I run a private practice called New Direction Counselling. I am a counsellor in South Benfleet and surrounding areas.
I am a qualified integrative counsellor. As an integrative counsellor I am trained to use different types of counselling, these include, CBT, Psychodynamic and Person Centred ways of counselling. I will help you to explore your feelings and emotions that are often related to your experiences. This in turn will allow my clients to reflect on what is happening to them and consider alternative ways of doing things. As a counsellor I will not give clients advice, I will help clients to make their own choices.
Working in a confidential setting, I listen attentively to my clients, offering them time, empathy and respect. Counselling will help clients to increase their ability to cope with challenges, or to make positive changes in their
Training, qualifications & experience
I specialise in Addiction and have worked for a drug and alcohol agency. I have helped many clients get to a stage in their life where addiction no longer needs to be part of it. I have worked with them through their darkest times and allowed them to see that being in recovery only takes as much effort as their addiction did.
I have also worked with people suffering depression, stress and anxiety caused by events in their childhood, work, relationships and life in general.
I have worked with people unable to deal with bereavement and helped them find ways of moving on with their lives, keeping their memories of loved ones close to their hearts without it effecting them on a day to day basis.
