Heide Martin Dip Couns MBACP
Sometimes we are feeling lost or can’t cope with certain aspects of our lives.
It can be helpful to just be listened to when we feel overwhelmed.
I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment in which to share your story. Here you can explore safely what it might be that is troubling you.
Therapy can help you to explore obstacles and look at difficult feelings.
Growing awareness will enable you to make conscious choices. You will gain a sense of your own agency and will be able to live your life more fully.
My model of practise is Integrative Transpersonal, which means that I am able to incorporate different therapeutic approaches into our work, depending very much on your individual needs and what you might require at any given time.
Your needs within our therapeutic relationship are uppermost.
I work relationally and am interested in your relationships outside of therapy as well as in our own therapeutic relationship and how this might develop.
I work psychodynamically and am curious about your formative years, your ‘family’ dynamics and the affects those might have on your sense of self.
I like to explore imagery and creative expression and might incorporate dreams, imagination and guided visualisation to deepen your process of self-exploration.
The transpersonal aspect of the work is providing a soulful element and is offering to go beyond our ego identity, exploring a sense of interconnectedness with nature and the planet as a whole.
