The remarkable capacity of humans to endure, heal and grow is of great interest to me. Grounded in the foundation of counselling over a twenty-year career, I take an integrative approach which recognises the uniqueness of each person’s pathway to healing. I work collaboratively with clients to resolve their issues, with a particular interest in mindful, body-informed trauma therapy.
A relational and somatic focus is the heart of my work as a therapist. I offer trauma-informed, therapeutic counselling grounded in an integrated and holistic approach. I have a deep interest in how stress and trauma impact the nervous system, and how we hold these impacts in our physiology. I am very experienced in working with complex and developmental trauma, and trauma resulting from sexual assault & family violence. I work with issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship problems, grief & loss, family dynamics, interpersonal issues, life transitions, or helping people to explore existential and spiritual concerns.
I aim to demystify the clinical fluff when it comes to nurturing mental wellbeing, while meeting each person exactly where they’re at. When working with people I ensure the space feels safe, grounded and nurturing as we move through each life experience. I love honouring each person's authenticity and empowering those I support.

Hello, my name is Martin. I work as a Clinical Sexologist, Relationship Counsellor and Accredited Mental Health Social Worker. As a Clinical Sexologist, I support individuals and their partner/s to address concerns relating to their sexual function and overall sexual wellbeing.

I have also facilitated men’s behaviour change programs for both mandated and non-mandated members, supporting them to understand the differences between abusive and non-abusive
I use a wholistic frame, inclusive of body, mind and spirit in my work as a therapist. I have found that working somatically can be tremendously revealing of inner gems that lay beneath the level of consciousness. They can provide answers, understandings, and can lead to living a fuller life. The use of your spiritual frames of reference in therapy can also bring meaning and can provide leverage for the changes you are wanting to make. You may feel supported to become more whole, self-actualised, self-understanding and accepting of the person you are.
