Martin Bennett BA (Hons) Counselling. MBACP, MACC

 

I have an integrative approach to counselling. I draw on a number of theories and disciplines to best serve a client’s issues. I am fundamentally ‘person centred’ which gives full autonomy to the client, so they always feel in control.

I use Attachment Theory to explore issues in the past that may be impacting the present. I use Systemic Theory to seek understanding on current dysfunction in one area of life and the impact it has on others. I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to challenge negative and destructive thought patterns.

My personal experience brings a breadth and depth to my therapeutic role and I have yet to come across a client who I couldn’t empathise with and help in their journey.

About Me:

I am a qualified, experienced counsellor / psychotherapist.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and the Association of Christian counsellors.  I am bound by their code of ethics and professional standards.

I have a private practice near the centre of Guildford. There is off street parking and a separate entrance.

I work with individuals and couples. This can take just a few sessions or longer depending on your issues and goals.  I consider it vital that each encounter produces some therapeutic benefit.
