"Working with Martin has been the difference in me living most days as an athlete in fear and living nearly everyday as an athlete  grateful and thankful to be living my dream.


It’s been something I’ve put off my whole life as I knew how much it would hurt to fix and heal the trauma in my career and personal life.


Martin has really allowed me the space and time to attack the trauma, understand why I am the way I am and also how to power through.


I was really shocked with how the therapy INSTANTLY helped me. I won’t deny I didn’t believe it would help, even in our first session it took me a minute to get into it all.  I thought it might be a load of rubbish to be honest, how I was wrong! It’s not a short process and it is a painful one. But one I wish I would have done sooner."
