Corona virus - Covid19


It seems that a return to face-to-face sessions is a way off. I will be keeping a focus on the numbers of infections and deaths as well as listening to my clients to decide when to return to sessions in person.However, I have used the phone very successfully for therapy for some forty years and online services for twenty years.


I am happy to use Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp, telephone and other such facilities.




Who I am

Martin works as a UKCP registered Constructivist Psychotherapist, Supervisor and trainer, using Neuro Linguistic Psychotherapy, (NLPt). He is qualified to Master Practitioner standard in NLP and is a qualified NLP trainer. He holds a Postgraduate Certificate in the supervision of counsellors from the University of Birmingham.


He provides psychotherapy, counselling, coaching and supervision to individuals and couples at his practice in West London and is involved in several psychotherapy / counselling and supervision training programmes.




What I Do

Psychotherapy

There are many forms of counselling and therapy but they are all simply ways of understanding what we want from our lives and how we might go about achieving those goals.


Martin uses the established process of Neuro Linguistic Psychotherapy. This style of working examines how people understand the world around them, and he helps people create their own success by showing them how they achieved success in the past.


Supervision

Supervision is that process by which we ensure the safety of our clients and develop the quality of our service.


There is a general obligation for all counsellors, psychotherapists, supervisorsto receive supervision / consultative support independently of any managerial relationships.


I have a postgraduate certificate in Supervision from the University of Birmingham.



In the early1980s Martin was a volunteer with the Terrence Higgins Trust. Taking the first call on the helpline he was instrumental in setting the foundations for the first response to the AIDS crisis. He developed support, advice and counselling services for those people who were affected and traumatised at the beginning of the crisis.


During an 11 year career in the NHS he has worked at senior manager level at Regional and District level and has been responsible for commissioning new services and leading on the development of drug and alcohol and sexual health services.


Martin provided psychological support, supervision and training to the staff and counsellors at the 7th July Assistance Centre. The centre provided psychotherapy, guidance and support to people who were affected by the London bombings in 2005, later taking on 16 further terrorist incidents and disasters. Building on his established training experience Martin created and delivered a series of workshops for the counsellors and support staff.

As we grow up we learn very quickly about how the world works and how it affects us. Unfortunately, we do not always come to the right conclusions and we do not always notice when things change. Without really noticing, we behave in ways that can be at best limiting and at worst harmful to us.





As we grow we may do some of the following

  • Make generalisations based on our experiences that do not always hold true.
  • Ignore information that we may not understand or do not want to know.
  • Try to ensure that what we do experience is re-shaped to support our view of things.


During his career working in the statutory, voluntary and private sectors, Martin has developed a wide range of skills and techniques. He works to ensure that the issues and concerns that you want to deal with are explored in a precise manner. The objective is to secure the changes that you want as quickly as you want and are able to achieve them.


When times are tough and confusing or when your whole future is about to change with job insecurity and financial strains, who can you turn to for guidance and help?
