About me and my therapy practice

Hi my name is Matthew. I’m a therapist working in Twickenham and Richmond and in central London. I aim to provide a safe, gentle space to talk, free of any judgement. If we agree to work together, I can modify and tailor therapy according to your wishes and needs, taking into account your expectations and requests. My focus is on collaboration towards a goal. 

In terms of style, you may wish to have a safe space to explore issues and reflect on patterns, discovering new, more functional ways of relating to your past or present, or you may request practical tools to help you manage mood now and in the future. 

My work is confidential, supervised regularly and I continue to keep informed of new developments and research within the field of mental health. My training is both psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioural. I work for the NHS as a counsellor on a part-time basis. 

Practice description

I currently work part-time in private practice. I also work for the NHS in an IAPT mental health service. I am a registered member of the BACP - a professional body regulating therapy in the UK. I abide by their ethical framework and undertake frequent CPD and regular supervision to make sure my work is informed and clinically safe.

My first session

The first session is for us to get to know one another and decide if we can work together. I can advise if the problem you're presenting is something I can help with or if another person would be best suited. The most important thing is that the sessions are tailored to you and that you feel we can work together.
