Martin Handy is a pluralistic therapist/counsellor integrating CBT, psychodynamic and person-centred therapy.

He is an accredited member of the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society and registrant member of The National Hypnotherapy Society.

Martin can help with issues relating to depression, relationships, life transition, life direction, sexuality, gender, anxiety, organisation and management, personality disorders, bipolar, OCD, addictions, trauma, and complex grief.

Martin works with performers "because I am a musician myself and understand the anxieties and stresses of public performance. I also used to be Head of Music in primary schools when I used to be a teacher and understand the stresses and issues related to performance nerves, self-criticism and critical reviews of one's work. I also like working with creative individuals and how it can be a positive resource in therapy".
