Christine MartinCounselling & Psychotherapy in Exeter

About Me

I started my working life in administration roles, until a little later in life when I trained as a Mental health nurse, so over the course of my working life I have met many people with a range of difficulties. Psychotherapy training has enabled me to build on and deepen those foundations and be with people in a different way. I am a psychotherapist in advanced training.

The way in which I like to practice counselling is by offering you listening, acceptance and support. I understand that it can feel very difficult to talk about your worries or difficulties to a stranger. I want to offer you a calm and steadying presence who values you and your story as a fellow human being, so that you feel that this is a time and space for you where I will be alongside you.

I will invite you to begin to tell me about what is troubling you, and together we will build on this. I will ask questions and together we will reflect on your thoughts and feelings and this in turn will help to broaden and deepen your thoughts and feelings, and open up new perspectives. It may also be helpful for us to reflect on what happens between us in our sessions. I understand that you may have questions you would like to ask, ahead of making your choice of therapist, and I am happy for you to contact me.
