About me

Hello and Welcome.

Here's a thought.  Our 'experience' is a balance of perceptions on our internal and external worlds. Sometimes what's happening in one (internal) doesn't sit easily with what's going on the other (external).

Depending on circumstances, this can create anxiety, stress, loss of confidence, harmful behaviours, phobias, depression etc.   It might  be that unresolved experiences from childhood may still be affecting the adult self.

I provide a relaxed, confidential and caring environment where you have the space to reflect on your experience and how you might be dealing with it.  It is often the start of a journey in enabling yourself to be more free, more resilient in choosing how best to live your life.

Please call me on 07846 827062 or email me (martin@healthyself.co.uk) if you'd like to arrange an initial session, without further obligation, online.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
