Martyn Harby MBACP
I offer a friendly and confidential one-to-one counselling service supporting adults and young people with bereavement and loss, anxiety, depression, stress and relationship issues; including physical and emotional abuse.
My counselling work is with an integrative approach using elements of person-centred, behavioural and psychodynamic therapy . I also employ play therapy when working with young people and children. I will be empathic, honest and non-judgemental with you throughout our sessions together.
Sessions take place at my home in Waterloo although home visits will be taken into consideration if you are unable to travel. I also offer on-line counselling through Skype.
Please note I am only available for appointments on Friday, however from Janaury 2020 i will also be available for appointments on Monday (please see times to the left of this page).
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an Advanced Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Level 5) accredited through the National Counselling Society and I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP).
As well as my private practice I work for the charity Place2Be managing a counselling and well-being service for children, parents and staff within a primary school setting.
My other roles include supervising volunteers for the national bereavement charity Cruse and helping to support adult clients who have suffered bereavement and loss.
My counselling experience has involved working with clients presenting with a number of issues including bereavement and loss, anxiety and depression, trauma, relationship problems and physical/emotional abuse.
