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.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Integrative Transpersonal Counsellor with a Diploma from the Re-Vision Training Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP accredited). I am a registered member of the BACP and follow their ethical framework.
Alongside my private practice I have been working for a counselling, psychotherapy and wellbeing practice based in London Bridge.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
