Counselling in Crouch End, North London and Blackfriars
Does life feel like it's getting on top of you?
Could you benefit from a place to take some time out, to explore your thoughts and feelings?
Welcome to my website, my name is Thalia Martin. I'm an accredited member of the National Counselling Society, and a practising counsellor in Crouch End, North London, and Blackfriars in the City of London. I am committed to providing counselling in a confidential, supportive and non-judgemental environment.
I work with both individuals and couples on an open-ended or short-term basis, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
I am an experienced counsellor who works with clients in the following areas, amongst others:
I've been working in mental health for over twenty years, and have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. My approach is to treat you as a unique individual, with your own experience, understanding and potential to grow. I see counselling as an opportunity for you to discuss what's on your mind with an independent professional, and I give you the space and time to work things out in the way that is best for you.
My fees are £40 per session in Crouch End, and £50 per session in Blackfriars. You can find out more about my approach, qualifications and training, experience, couples work, and fees on the other pages of my website.
If you think I could help you, please contact me by phone or email to find out more. If you decide to arrange an introductory session, we can talk about what you'd like to get from counselling, and how we could work together.

News and views – The Dialogical Therapist by Paolo Bertrando
I'm enjoying reading this book. Paolo Bertrando is exceptionally good at making theory interesting and relevant. He finds connections between the systemic approach to therapy, which places importance on theory and method, and the dialogical approach, which values the healing power of conversation. Reading him, I'm reminded that practising therapy with interest, and some humility, is more important than which theories you follow.
