About me and my therapy practice

Do you know what it is that you want, or need to change? Or are you feeling unsettled but not sure why? I understand it can be hard to start counselling and find a therapist whom you will feel comfortable to talk through what is troubling you. So why me? I am a Bournemouth based counsellor, with immediate availability, offering daytime/evening appointments. In a safe and confidential space I will help you to gain insight and understanding of what is troubling you, and help you as you seek to change what is causing you to feel unsettled or unhappy.

Practice description

I offer 50 minute session; either by phone or online via Zoom. My approach is simple and holistic; I believe counselling can provide the time and space, to help bring awareness of issues, and to gain clarity, understanding, and perhaps what changes are needed. Its not for me to give you the answers, but rather for me to be alongside you; to help you to find those answers, supporting you along the way.

To start, I offer an initial free confidential 20 minute phone call.

About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I am Matt; an Integrative Humanistic Counsellor, offering you a safe, calm, confidential and non-judgemental space to listen, to help and support you. As we work together, we will focus on what is happening for you and around you, to bring awareness of issues, find clarity and understanding, and perhaps what changes are needed. I am trained in providing support for Gambling Addictions. 

Practice description

Gambling addictions can start as harmless fun with the odd bet here or there, and quickly become hard to stop. Having an initial big win, entices us to keep trying to get another and sometimes at great cost to ourselves; financially, emotionally and impacting our relationships and wellbeing.

We will work with your gambling preference and explore physical ways to limit or stop this. Importantly, we will also focus on what is happening for you emotionally and mentally, so that the underlying reasons that are pushing you to gamble, whether conscious or unconscious, can be understood so to then make the necessary changes.

It is my belief we all have the power and the resources within us to make the changes that are needed, but it is not always possible to tap into those on our own. 

My first session

Your first session will be an introduction and we can explore what is happening for you now, some background information and see what you need to get from your time. If you find that goes well then we can arrange further sessions.

Sessions are for 50 minutes and can be over a short term & longer term period, depending on what is most useful for you.

Addictions, Anxiety, Depression, Identity issues, Loss, Men's issues, Personal development, Post-traumatic stress, Relationships, Self esteem, Stress, Trauma, Work related issues

Types of therapy

CBT, Gestalt, Humanistic, Integrative, Person centred, Transactional analysis

About me and my therapy practice

Hello and welcome. As an Integrative Humanistic Counsellor, I offer you a safe, calm, confidential and non-judgemental space to work through what is causing you problems. As we work together, we can focus on what is happening for you and around you, to bring awareness of issues, more clarity, understanding, and perhaps what changes are needed. It is not for me to give you the answers you need, but I will be alongside you; to understand and help you to find those answers, empowering and supporting you along the way.

It is my belief we all have what we need within us to make the changes to live a happier life, but it is not always possible to do this on our own. Stress, anxiety or feelings of overwhelm can build over time or often appear suddenly, and trying to move through these feelings can be hard, and I appreciate reaching out for help is a big step. 

Practice description

As an Integrative Counsellor, my practice is anchored in Person Centred Therapy & Gestalt, plus I draw on other models of therapy including Transactional Analysis and EFT (Tapping), with the focus always being on what is most helpful for you. Your first session will be an introduction and we can explore what is happening for you now, some background information and see what you need to get from your time. My experience includes working with anxiety, depression, grief, stress, self esteem, relationships & gambling addictions. 

Sessions are for 50 minutes and can be over a short term & longer term period, depending on what is most useful for you.

My first session

The first session will be introductory, and we will start by talking through what's happening for you, what you need from your time in counselling, and explore some background information. 

Please do contact me for an initial free, and confidential chat to talk through what's happening for you and for us to see if I am the right person to help you. We can then arrange sessions at a mutually convenient time.
