Counselling and psychotherapy in a nutshell

Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. They are delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long term to help them bring about effective change or enhance their wellbeing. (from the BACP website).

Choosing a therapist

Please take your time to find the right therapist for you. An initial telephone conversation can help you to ascertain whether you might gel with a therapist but you should also take care to find someone who is properly trained and is accountable to an appropriate professional organisation.

What Our Clients Say

I wanted to thank you so much for helping me over the past year – I’ve learnt so much about myself and about how to deal with things in a positive way.
would highly recommend Martin to anyone who wants to stop smoking FOREVER!
He has brought the world to me and I cannot thank him enough for opening up my own world again and giving me the confidence to know “I CAN DO IT”. I would and have, highly recommended Martin and would not hesitate to see him again if I ever needed to.
I found Martin to be extremely professional, warm and easy to understand as he explained the hypnotherapy procedure. I came away from the session unbelievably relaxed and prepared for my exams. I was delighted to get a distinction when my results came through!
