Hi, my name's Martin and I'm a qualified person-centred counsellor who puts my clients goals and needs at the forefront of my practice. I'm non-judgemental and will work with my clients agenda and desired goals in mind. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and have been counselling at a local cancer hospice for nearly 2 years. I specialise in bereavement, depression and anxiety. I also work with individuals, couples and families covering a broad range of other issues including family, marital and relationship guidance, coping skills, coaching and play therapy.
I am fully trained and experienced in working with individuals, couples and families and I encounter a wide range of problems from people with various backgrounds and issues. I have had specialist training in Loss, Bereavement and Cancer diagnosis. In addition to this children and adult play therapy and child development.
Taking the first steps in reaching out is often the hardest thing to do, so I offer a free first consultation to establish your goals and needs and an introduction to counselling offer at a reduced rate. I'm accepting, respectful, down to earth, compassionate, and empathic and my approach is in providing my clients with the right conditions for change

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.
