Martyn Hone MBACP (Registered).
There are many ways that counselling can work. I am able to offer an array of approaches that could suit you. I specialise in relationship issues, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, and addiction. Some clients like to be gently challenged; others have more of a need to be genuinely listened to and understood; while some might like to try creative ways of self–discovery.
I practice an integrative form of counselling/psychotherapy which means I can work from different perspectives based in Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis and CBT methodology or a mixture of all, whatever feels right for you. My background is in documentary film making specialising in human stories. Before I started my counselling training I gained a first class BSc in psychology. I also provided emotional support to terminally ill patients and co-facilitated CBT courses, part of IAPT. In addition to private practice, I have been a counselling at an addiction centre and have had on-going specialised training.
I have included some quotes from a couple of my clients to give you an idea what they experienced when coming to see me as a counsellor/psychotherapist.
“Working with Martyn has given me space to reflect and find strategies to cope; Martyn has helped me to effectively manage my Bipolar Disorder so that I am much happier and healthier”
“Martyn’s a reflective listener; I value his insights and have really benefited from his counsel.”
I believe Counselling can bring into awareness other options that can allow us to be less fearful of becoming who we really are.
I can offer a place where difficult feelings can be expressed confidentially in a non-judgemental accepting environment. With the aim of becoming aware of a different perspective which can help you to recognise other options of being.
You can start with an introductory session and then see if you want to continue. The sessions will take place once a week for 50 minutes.
I charge £50 for a 50 minute session with a few concessionary sessions for students and people on benefits.
