About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I'm Matt and Invivo Counselling is my private practice.  I'm a qualified and highly experienced counsellor and psychotherapist working to help people in Selby, Goole and the surrounding areas of Yorkshire.

I use an Integrative approach, combining Humanistic, Psychodynamic and CBT therapy to help my clients with a wide range of issues, to help them express themselves, understand and to move forward through self-awareness and change. My approach is warm and sensitive, respectful and non-judgmental. You, the client is the focus and we work collaboratively. I'd welcome the chance to help you with the things you may be finding hard and find a way forward.

I offer an initial consultation for you to ask any questions and hear more about the counselling I offer, without obligation. My counselling rooms are warm, comfortable and private in Selby centre.

I work ethically, professionally and as a Registered Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapists), I abide by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling. 

My past experience includes providing counselling services at Sheen Lane NHS Health Centre in Surrey and at the No. 5 Young People's Counselling Service in Reading. I am the founder and lead counsellor of Invivo Therapies, a collective of counsellors and therapists based at The Selby Wellness Clinic ( I am also in the process of establishing SHINE, a charity providing counselling for young people in the Selby area.
