About me and my therapy practice

Hi, my name is Martina. I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist (MBACP), working in Leeds city centre and Meanwood. I am incredibly passionate about working with individuals to provide them with the tools to build a healthy relationship with their minds and overcome their negative experiences.

I believe therapy provides an eye-opening journey for individuals to make peace with others, but mostly ourselves. I can support you in this journey of self-discovery and acceptance by providing a confidential, compassionate and inclusive space, where you can feel safe to reflect on the emotional impact that your past experiences and interpersonal relationships have on your day to day life. This process can support you in identifying patterns across your feelings and behaviours, so that together, we can gently challenge these and start to create a new sense of self-awareness and clarity around your needs and wants.

Over the years, I have gained experience working with a range of individuals experiencing different mental health difficulties that impacted their ability to cope and grow in life. Whether they were struggling with a difficult relationship with a parent, an abusive partner or issues around their body image, it was often easier to point a finger towards themselves. This started to create an overwhelming cycle of blaming, self-deprecation and feelings of worthlessness.

If this sounds like you, therapy can help you unravel these thoughts and feelings, recognise where they come from and learn to understand how to accept and value yourself for your strengths as well as your imperfections.

Practice description

My approach to counselling is based on the knowledge that each person is unique. This means that their experiences and needs are better understood through their perspective. I believe the client is the expert about themselves and it is my role to tailor my approach to you and what works for you, rather than making you fit in my own ways of working.

When working together, I place the relationship we create at the centre of the therapeutic process. This means I aim to establish a trustworthy relationship based on mutual respect. My aim is for you to feel safe and able to reflect on the emotional impact that your past experiences and interpersonal relationships have on your day to day life. My role is to guide through this process of reflection and self-discovery at a pace that feels comfortable for you.
