Philip Ross Martyn
Are you frustrated with where you are at present? Do you want to lead a happier more fulfilling life? Tired, depressed, anxious, angry?
My objective is to provide a safe non-judgmental, confidential space for you to explore how you feel. I will not find solutions for you but I will work with you to enable you to find the answers for yourself.
My aim as a Counsellor is to help you to understand yourself. This will be unique to each individual but could include: creating a happier, more fulfilling life; feeling confident in making decisions without worrying about the perceptions of others; building more positive relationships; or even creating that elusive feeling of relaxed calm.
I am dedicated to helping people to find understanding in themselves, as well as encouraging them to live their lives freely and happily. After 5 years of professional training to date, I have worked as a Counsellor for a well respected charity in the local area for a year and a half
My core practitioner training was in person-centred and existential counselling – where the Counsellor is guided by the Client’s needs and the areas they wish to explore. I am also an accredited coach with the EMCC (European Mentoring & Coaching Council) and can work with Clients to build confidence, resilience and understanding.
As someone who has personally benefited from counselling, I am passionate about sharing that same benefit with others.
I am a strong advocate of holistic health and the interconnected nature of our body and mind or how our feelings and emotions can impact our physical well-being. Through my own personal experiences and extensive formal training I am well-positioned to help others through confidential, non-judgmental and supportive counselling sessions.

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.
