Martin is a professionally qualified and experienced Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with a First Class Honours degree in Integrative Counselling from Roehampton University and additional specialist training in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy at The London Diploma of Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy. He is a member of the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).
In his work as a Psychosexual & Relationship therapist, Martin has supported LGBTQ++, heterosexual and non-binary couples and individuals from many diverse cultural and social backgrounds; in addition to 12 years in Private Practice, he has worked for the NHS in GUM (Genito Urinary Medicine) clinics in Surrey and Berkshire and with numerous charities such as Terrence Higgins Trust, St. Peter’s House and Positive Action supporting patients and clients with their sex and relationship difficulties.
“My passion is demystifying unhelpful attitudes, social stigmas and shameful feelings about sex and working collaboratively with my clients to help them develop a clearer and meaningful understanding of their sexual and relationship difficulties and desires so that they can embrace the changes they need to make to create the relationship and sex lives that they want.”
“As an Integrative Psychosexual & Relationship Therapist, I draw on therapeutic techniques and understanding from the Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Existential, Gestalt, CBT and Attachment models of therapeutic counselling to create a unique, flexible and personalised way of working with you that is tailored to your own specific needs and difficulties.”
“I aim to create a confidential and non-judgemental therapeutic space with you that is safe, trusted and sensitive to your individual needs, so that you can freely explore the issues that are troubling you without feeling judged or forced into making decisions that are not right for you.
Above all, as well as the serious stuff, I aim to create a therapeutic environment that can be fun, playful, humorous and exciting……..after all, isn’t that what healthy sex and relationships are too!!”
