Welcome to Counselling Psychotherapy
in Balham and Clapham area, South London
I am Nuria Martin, an Integrative counsellor and psychotherapist,
based in Balham and Clapham, South London.
Sometimes we ignore, adapt to or minimize problems which can result in a profound unhappiness. This unhappiness can manifest itself in a form of depression, anxiety, addictions, relationship difficulties, physical ailments, insomnia and more.
Counselling offers a therapeutic relationship which has the potential to positively change your life.
Counselling can be a great source of relief and support helping you through tough times, furthermore counselling offers the opportunity to look at your life with fresh eyes.
If the quality of your life is reduced by negative thoughts, fears or unmanageable behavior that cause you to suffer, the counselling therapeutic relationship will help you to get perspective.
Counselling is a very personal process. It can bring to surface experiences and behaviors you were previously unaware of.
Effective counselling reduces confusion and anxiety, and supports decision making. It leads to positive changes in attitude and behavior.

Counselling psychotherapy helps with day to day worries as well as more traumatic events.

You might think it can be easy to see others clearly, but understanding ourselves is a different story. You might have lots of thoughts and feelings about what you want, but find it difficult to get your needs met. Friends and family can be too emotionally attached to be objective. Counselling helps you to identify your strength and remove mental blocks, allowing you to become more self-aware.
