More about Martin and Spirit Free Counselling

Who am I?

I am a fully qualified counsellor who is person-centred which means that I will help you to work through whatever issues you bring without any judgement.

I have been using Counselling skills to help people to heal and to flourish for over 30 years.

I offer counselling for a wide range of difficulties and issues including relationship and family issues, stress, anxiety and depression, bereavement, work stress and redundancy, retirement, self-worth and low self-esteem, disability and chronic pain, neurodiversity, low mood, guilt, abuse, trauma etc. I can also offer you the option (but only if you want it) to talk openly about your spirituality or faith as we work through your issues together.

What are the advantages of Zoom or Telephone Counselling?

Many clients find Zoom or telephone counselling more convenient as they don’t need to spend time travelling to and from appointments. It also suits clients with mobility restrictions or childcare responsibilities. In addition to my years of counselling training I have undertaken over 100 hours of specialist Telephone and Zoom counselling training.

Can I have a face-to-face appointment if I want one?

I can offer face-to-face appointments either sat down together or walking together. Sometimes even clients who prefer telephone or Zoom like at least one face-to-face meeting as it can help to build the therapeutic relationship. I am based in the North West and have sites between Liverpool and Manchester and also in Lancashire, Cheshire and Derbyshire.

How can you know you will get good service?

I am very experienced having used counselling skills to help people to heal and live well for over 30 years. I am a Registered Member of the Professional Association for Counsellors, the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), working to their Professional Standards and Code of Ethics.

I now run a small private practice on a non-profit making basis. This means that I can offer you a very tailored, personal service suited to your particular needs.

What about a FREE Consultation and costs?

I offer a free initial consultation where we can explore together whether I am the right counsellor for you. If we decide that I can meet your counselling needs I will send you a standard counselling contract for us to go through and sign to ensure that you get what you are paying for. I charge the standard rate of £50 per hour long session, with a discount for unwaged people.
