About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I am Martin and I know that life at times can seem testing and stressful. When things seem really difficult you may ask an important question, can counselling help me?

Perhaps you are reading this today because you are struggling with anxiety or depression or perhaps you are finding relationships difficult, want some help with the pain of loss or bereavement or have low self-esteem? 

You might have found yourself thinking “I could use some help with my anger”, “I’ve been feeling low like this for too long now, “I wish I could stop feeling anxious” or “Will I ever get over this?”.

I understand the thought of counselling may feel daunting but you are not alone. After experiencing the therapeutic relationship people often report feeling calmer and less stressed, that sleep has improved, that communication has improved and hence relationships are better. Some have learnt to say no, are kinder to themselves, have a better relationship with food and are laughing more often. This isn’t a guarantee but a rough guide of what we may be working towards together. It is a journey and one I would be happy to accompany you with.
