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.
