About me and my therapy practiceHello, my name is Matthew and I'm a qualified, friendly integrative counsellor with a core focus on person-centered therapy. I am a registered member of the BACP.
It’s often very hard to ask for help. I will provide a safe, confidential, non- judgmental and trust rich environment to promote and encourage deeper understanding of the self, which will help you to live your life to the full. We will work together to identify issues that are causing you difficulty or pain and find your answers
I use various techniques, which can include: mindfulness, creative therapy using drawing, emotion therapy cards, stones, shells, and various other creative interventions. This can be really helpful for those clients that struggle to express their emotions. Allowing them to access their unconscious and to process the things that create inner turmoil & conflict, which can lead to negative thoughts and behaviour.
I also work with a charity specializing in helping clients with drug and alcohol addiction, recovery or past trauma that interrelate with depression and anxiety. I have experience in helping clients with video game/internet addiction and neurodiversity including ADHD, dyslexia and autism.
My first session
I offer both short-term and long-term therapy, which will be led by you.
The space that I offer, is yours for 50 minutes, and I will be led by you and what you need. I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation which will give you the opportunity to ask questions and help you to decide if you would feel comfortable working with me.
The first session will include going through my counselling contract with you. This is to show you how I work within the ethical framework of the bacp and to keep you safe. I will take a few details from you and then the session will be yours.
