Practical ways for you to sleep, work, and feel better!

Hello, I'm Martine Barclay

I am a masters trained psychotherapist, counsellor, leadership coach and Buteyko breathing teacher. I help working adults to overcome anxiety, insomnia and unhelpful patterns of behaviour in a welcoming and non-clinical environment. My wholistic approach combines my 25 year international HR & Talent career, with proven talk therapies and psychobiological information so that you can understand and overcome your particular challenge and thrive. I specialize in adult sleep behaviour and related topics e.g. high performance, stress, anxiety, trauma and addiction.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY ABOUT ME

I hope to see your feedback here soon!

"Thanks for the session as part of your sleep program. I’ve had ‘sleep issues’ all my life and been taking medication for a loooong time. Your insights were incredible. I now understand my attitude to sleeping tablets; how they are a part controlling my life. In the past I have been unable to unlock the dependence. Now I can see a new way of living. Over the last 6 weeks I’ve been able to halve my dosage and still fall asleep. I have a clear goal and am committed to reaching deep restful sleep unaided by drugs. (Four months later Joanne is on less than half of her sleep medication). "

Joanne
Marketing Consultant

"Martine helped me to quickly make a positive impact in a new firm at partnership level. Her candid insights and support provided me with motivation to address challenging behaviours of more senior practitioners and resolve interpersonal conflicts rather than work around them."

Simon
Partner, International Law Firm

"Martine helped me with strategies to focus on moving forward, to help me calm my mind, and manage my stress levels. The result was a clear understanding of some key focus areas and what I needed to do to improve in those areas. I have benefited greatly from my work with Martine and I would highly recommend her coaching service to others. "

Dawn
Marketing Executive

"Martine helped me recognise my mental and emotional needs and showed me how I could capitalise on my strengths in practical and constructive ways so I could fill my days with activities I enjoy. Martine is like a match maker between you and your actual self! and what I needed to do to improve in those areas. I have benefited greatly from my work with Martine and I would highly recommend her coaching service to others. "
