Martha Wade, BSc, MA, MBACP (Reg), MBPsS
I have a very empathetic and warm personality to be able to help you connect and support you through the difficulties you may have. Whether you are struggling in your personal/professional relationships or whether you are feeling sad, stuck or finding it increasingly hard to make important life choices or perhaps experiencing symptoms of anxiety, low self esteem or depression, I provide a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space in which you can explore your difficult and painful issues. I will support you in growth, self acceptance and fuller self-expression.
The Way Forward
Sometimes taking the first step to therapy can feel daunting - figuring out which therapist to work with can be confusing; the idea of sharing your thoughts and feelings with a stranger can be anxiety provoking which is understandable. To help you make a decision, I charge half my usual fee for the first meeting to support this process of finding the right therapist. During the first initial session, I may ask a few questions in order to get an understanding of how best we can move forward and work together and whether counselling would be helpful in bringing about positive change. We can decide together how many sessions are needed and to answer your questions about the counselling process.
Please email or call me to arrange an initial consultation.
