Martin Sawers

UKCP Registered Psychotherapist

I have run a private psychotherapy practice since 1994 in Slough and Bristol, training at the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy & Counselling (BCPC) from 1989 to 1997. Although trained as a psychotherapist, I also have considerable experience of working in Primary Care, having worked in GP surgeries since 1994. I am a member of Counsellors & Psychotherapists in Primary Care (CPC).

I have been supervising counsellors in private practice and in Primary Care since 2000, and have trained with the Centre for Supervision and Team Development (CSTD London), completing their Certificate in Supervision in 2013. I am a supervisor member of the Counsellors' Collective South West LLP.

I subscribe to the BCPC Code of Ethics.

After a language degree, and a degree in Psychology with the Open University, I trained in Postural Integration with Jack Painter. Joining the training at the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy & Counselling (BCPC), I qualified with the Diploma in Humanistic & Integrative Psychotherapy in 1997. Alongside a private psychotherapy practice, I work in GP surgeries as a Primary Care Counsellor in Bristol, Slough and Bracknell. Since 2000, I have worked with trainees from courses in Counselling Psychology (Roehampton) and Humanistic & Integrative Counselling (BCPC) on placement in GP surgeries, helping with their training and development.
