About Open Minds
Hello, my name is Martin Fahey. Welcome to my page and I hope you find the information here informative.
I am a professionally qualified and experienced therapeutic counsellor and have supported many aspects of human experience ranging from anxiety and depression to low self-esteem, bereavement, work related issues, relationship difficulties, childhood trauma, sexual identity, drug & alcohol dependency, sexual abuse and chronic illness with adult clients of all ages and from a diverse range of social, ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
As an Integrative Counsellor, I draw on counselling techniques and understanding from the person-centred, psychodynamic and existential models of therapeutic counselling, to create a unique, flexible and personalised way of working with you that is tailored to your own specific needs and difficulties.
My approach is very much focussed on working with you to help you understand and come to terms with the problems you are experiencing, in a confidential therapeutic space that is safe, trusted and sensitive to your individual needs, so that you can freely explore the issues that are troubling you without feeling judged or forced into making decisions that are not right for you.
Most importantly, I aim to build a trusting and supportive relationship with you, where you will be listened to and understood. Working at your pace, we will work together to help you clarify your thoughts and feelings, so that you might gain a clearer understanding of the person you are, be able to acknowledge what is really important to you, and find new ways of dealing with the problems you are experiencing so that you can move forward and live a less stressful and more fulfilling life.
I offer face-to-face, telephone and Skype counselling support for individuals and couples on an open-ended, time-limited or solution-focused therapy basis, depending on your individual circumstances.
