About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I'm Matthew and I am a MBACP Accredited Person-centred psychotherapist passionate about supporting people to live happier and healthier lives. I have been in practice for over 10 years and have worked in range of different settings (local authority, schools, universities and privately) with individuals from all walks of life.

I am a person-centred psychotherapist by training however along my professional journey I have picked up some useful techniques from other modalities such as Solution-focussed brief therapy and CBT, which, where appropriate, I integrate into my practice to adapt to the needs of each client.

I aim to support my clients to develop the tools and resilience to better cope with the world around them, be at peace with the events of the past and more confident about approaching the future.

Everyone has their own unique experience of life and what may be effective for one individual may not work well for others. I believe in aiming for personal, bespoke and sustainable solutions which allow my clients to come away from therapy better prepared to independently live their lives and maintain good mental health.

I have experience working with a wide range of different individuals of all different backgrounds and age groups and have found a real value in honest human connection. For this reason I am quite a relaxed sort of practitioner, I don't get hung up on formalities and welcome any style of communication that feels natural in order to create a safe space for authentic self-expression.

As well as individuals, I enjoy working with couples to address a wide range of issues such as improving communication, working through infidelity, managing anger and conflict, preparation for marriage, improving intimacy and developing and maintaining trust. 

When working with couples I make it clear that I am biased only in favour of what is going support the possibility of a healthy relationship.

Practice description

I am currently offering 50 minute online sessions via Microsoft Teams or Skype.

I offer both short-term and long-term therapy however I do recommend a minimum of 6 weekly sessions to get the most out of therapy.

My current rates are as follows;

Standard rate - £60 per session
Students - £50 per session
Couples - £85 per session

It's important that you feel confident that you are able to get the most out of therapy and choosing the right therapist can feel like a daunting task! This is why I welcome anyone who would like a free informal 15 minute chat to give me call or drop me an email to establish a sense of what you're looking for and what working together might feel like.

You can also check my social media accounts on Instagram and Tiktok @matthewtherapy to get a sense of how I work!

My first session

During our first session we'll explore what has brought you to counselling, what you'd like to get out of therapy and then agree on how we'd like work together to achieve your goals.

Of course, not all plans go perfectly and there may very well be on-going concerns that unexpectedly take priority - I am happy to work in as structured or as flexible style as necessary to ensure you get the most out of each session whilst working towards better mental health.
