SUE MARTIN PSYCHOTHERAPY, COUNSELLING & SUPERVISION
Conversation Listening Understanding
With some 20 years of experience of listening to, supporting and guiding individuals to find their way in dealing with a variety of life’s difficulties. From issues in the work place, to family, relationships, bereavement, abuse & trauma. As well feeling depressed, anxious, sad or numb. I also welcome those that just want to find out more about themselves.
As I have an integrative approach I have a wide variety of ‘tools’ and understanding to bring to our sessions. This allows me to tailor the therapy to you and your particular need. With this in mind I offer both short term & open ended therapy.
Location: Clapham SW4 & Balham Tooting, Battersea

My role is to help you clarify and illuminate your concerns through honest and open dialogue and, if you wish, help you to change.
