Kevin Martin MSc, ADEP.

About Me

I am an Existential Psychotherapist offering open-ended and time-specific counselling and psychotherapy to adult individuals and to couples.  I offer face to face, telephone and video-link sessions.   I abide by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy code of ethics.

How I work

As an Existiential Psychotherapist I co-explore your experiences and your world with you. In therapy we consider the possibilities that are open to you to take for moving through wherever you find yourself at this time. 

I question the assumptions the medical model makes about ‘mental illness’ and the many diagnosis which are considered to be life-long diseases of the brain.  Life happens and it impacts on us and I offer a space to explore these experiences and consider the way we can interpret our experiences and views of the world we inhabit.  If you feel there is more to you than a diagnosis of ‘depression’, ‘bi-polar’, ‘shizophrenia’ and other labels you may have had placed upon you then I am here to hear your experiences.

I work on Thursdays and I offer face to face sessions at Wimborne Therapy Centre, your home or a more public setting if confidentiality can be assured.  Sometimes the setting might be going for a particular walk that you enjoy or in a location that holds a sense of peace for you or indeed a setting that causes you feelings of anxiety.

In the past I have worked as a Mental Health Support Worker for the NHS, working in a hospital setting.
