About me and my therapy practice

Hi I'm Martin,

I specialise in providing counselling sessions out in the natural world.

The outdoor environment can bring its own sense of peace and improve our wellbeing. Often, we cannot help being drawn to the natural beauty around us. This can enhance counselling sessions, providing a relaxed, soothing, environment in which to explore deeper difficult issues in a gentle and powerful way.

Our daily lives are often so busy that we don’t have a moment too think of the bigger picture. Or we feel so flattened by events that it is all we can do to get through the day. Counselling does not provide any magic wands, What it can do is offer a safe space in the storm where you can pause and really take stock of what is happening.

My key belief is that the outdoor environment is healing and can add real depth to counselling sessions.

Please email for more details and an intial phone call can be arranged. 

Practice description

I work in and around the Glasgow area, including, Pollok Country Park, Queen's Park, Linn Park and Mugdock Country Park. The emphasis is on relaxing peaceful sessions with gentle paths lasting 1-2hrs with only basic jacket and comfy shoes needed. Further details and options can be discussed when arranging sessions.

Some online sessions are available.

The best way to get in touch with me is by email and we can arrange phone calls and sessions from there.

My first session

On our first meeting it can sometimes be useful to have more time to settle into the environment.

Initially it is possible to have a relaxed 2 hour session and really get a sense of each other and the work we may be able to do together.

These initial 2hr sessions: £80

1hr sessions: £50
