Lee Martin MBACP(Accred),MA Psychotherapy,BA(Hons),PGDIP Supervision, EMDR
Hello and Welcome,
This is a scary and difficult time for many with lots of uncertainty, I offer therapy by video and offer flexibility in term of times we meet. Life can certainly throw us unwelcome surprises and sometimes we need help beyond our circle of friends, someone who is not only a good listener, but a qualified, skilled and experienced practitioner. As an Accredited Psychotherapist with a Masters degree; I see many come through my door and undergo transformation, healing and leave with hope for the future.
I am concerned and committed for the healing, the well-being and development of you as a whole person: body, mind and spirit. I offer a space that is non-threatening and non-judgmental where a new expression of who you truly are can begin to immerge, it is a space to re-imagine your life and future; a way to examine and work through issues you may have so that genuine healing and change can occur.
In addition to various therapeutic approaches, I also use a combination of art, music and drama therapy as well as meditation techniques when appropriate. I offer counselling for adults & adolescents, as well as couple counselling, I also offer Christian Counselling.
Before becoming a psychotherapist / counsellor, I spent 12 years working as a family minister in various churches in the UK and in America. I have also worked as a counsellor and chaplain in a young offenders institute. Over the years I have worked with thousands of individuals from all types of backgrounds.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
