“Martina was the blessing I needed at a time where I didn’t know how to get myself out of my trauma vortex. Martina worked with me for a number of years to help me dig into parts of myself that I had never gone to before. She supported me with compassion and patience and equipped me with a knowledge about myself and my heritage that I will use for the rest of my life. My life truly changed as a result of Martina’s support.”
“I reached out to Martina during an incredibly difficult period in my life and am grateful for the support and guidance I received from her during that time. Working with Martina has been a transformative experience that has positively impacted my life in numerous ways. Throughout our sessions, Martina made me feel heard and understood. She has provided valuableinsights and perspectives that helped me gain a deeper understanding of myself and my relationship with others. I wholeheartedly recommend Martina to anyone seeking a compassionate, skilled, and dedicated therapist. Martina’s professionalism, expertise, and genuine care have made a profound impact on my life, and I am truly grateful for the opportunity to work with her.”
I have seen Martina on and off for seven years during different transitional periods like moving city, a death in the family, and after having a child. Sessions with her, in person and over the phone, have been instrumental in helping me navigate periods of stress but have also given me insights which have helped me and my relationships in every day life. I would (and do) recommend Martina to anyone who wants to navigate complex life and relationships in a way which acknowledges that complexity, and which gives you insight into your own role in tricky dynamics, which can be confronting but is also a critical first step in shifting those dynamics.
“I have been engaging Martina’s therapy services as an individual for 3 years. I have always found Martina to be kind, empathetic, and a great listener. Martina’s experience and professionalism have allowed me to feel supported while I have shared a variety of personal issues in our sessions, for example, work stress, relationship issues, and grief and loss. Martina considers your story in the context of your relationships, your history, and other systems. Her insight has encouraged me to make discoveries about myself, which has led to meaningful change and positive impacts
“Martina has the perfect amount of seriousness (when needed) and humour, and genuine care, in assisting me to improve my important family relationships. I really felt like she worked at my pace. Despite my strong (unconscious) invitations for her to solve my problems for me, she helped me to access my own best thinking, which I’ve been able to carry forward”
“Both of us were rather apprehensive at the thought of entering in to couples therapy, however Martina made us feel accepted and supported. Martina’s approach has equipped us with the tools we need to ‘do it for ourselves’, rather than needing to rely heavily on a therapist for years to come. Our sessions have actually been enjoyable, which is not something I ever expected when it came to therapy”.
“Martina’s supervision offered me so much room to develop my approach as a therapist working with couples, families and individuals. Her thoroughness, clarity and compassion held both me and my clients in a way that we could each find our best selves for ourselves.
“I’ve been a client on and off of Martina’s for the last 14-15 years. Martina has been gentle when she’s needed to be and challenging when I’ve needed it. Her insight, knowledge and attunement in our sessions has guided and helped me in times when I’ve most needed it. I still go over in my head on some of our previous sessions when I am stuck in life. I am currently not in therapy but Martina is who I will go back to if I decide to revisit therapy”.
