Ruth Martin MBACP (Accred)
I have 10 years experience working as a counsellor, helping people with issues such as stress and anxiety, depression, loss and relationship difficulties. I offer a confidential, supportive space for you to share your concerns and be listened to with acceptance and warmth as we work together towards the changes you want in your life.
It might be that you need some support to face a painful experience, look at how you are in your relationships, or find ways of living a more fulfilling life. Counselling can enable you to reach a clearer understanding about yourself and your life, improve your sense of self-worth and support you in becoming kinder towards yourself. I bring sensitivity and non-judgement to focus on you and your story.
I offer insights and support with warmth and compassion, drawing from my training, my experience as a counsellor and my own journey through pain and happiness. I grew up as a young carer, and I have worked in a variety of settings in business and in charities as well as being in private practice.
I work with a variety of counselling models and techniques, exploring what works for you, on both a long-term and short-term basis. I also have 25 years experience in mindfulness and I can offer this alongside counselling if you would like to try this - it can be especially effective in helping with depression, stress and anxiety (panic attacks or generalized anxiety disorder for example).
If you are interested and want to find out more, please contact me to arrange an initial telephone chat. It is really important that you find someone you feel comfortable with your counsellor, as the therapeutic relationship that develops is at the heart of your journey.
