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".
