Martin began his career in statutory social work with young offenders (‘Intermediate Treatment’), became director of a prisoners’ welfare charity and then a criminal defence barrister, all different hats for working with people in distress. In 2015 he completed an MSc in Psychology at Regent’s University London, investigating vulnerabilities to Intolerance of Uncertainty among women with disordered eating.

He is now a private practice psychotherapist trained in addiction psychology, Transactional Analysis and the advanced clinical practice of Integrative Psychotherapy. In 2020, he was invited to join The Local Company of the Donmar Warehouse Theatre.
