Hello, I’m Matt.

When I was looking for a therapist I had vague ideas about the type of therapy I wanted, but what felt most important to me was meeting someone I liked, I could trust, and who I felt got me. With that in mind, please feel welcome to give me a call to see if we seem like a good fit for one another.

I work in an integrative way. This means I’ve trained in a range of psychotherapeutic approaches and I draw from them, or integrate them, differently with each person I see. I take this approach because I think we are each unique in our experiences, needs and hopes for the future, so different things are likely to help each of us at different points in our lives. If we were to meet we would settle into a co-created process that fits you. I work holistically, by which I mean it feels important to me that we would pay attention to every part of you and your experiencing and not simply try to treat a ‘symptom’. I’ll be doing my utmost to travel alongside you compassionately, thoughtfully and intelligently.

I work with a wide client-base, helping people with a great range of histories, concerns and challenges. Sometimes I see people for just a session or two, and sometimes for much longer. My work is underpinned by respect, care and curiosity, non-judgement and open-heartedness. You are welcome whatever your experiences, feelings or worries are, and however they show up.

It’s really important to me to acknowledge the dynamics of power and privilege in our society, and how they impact us. While this might be completely irrelevant to why you are seeking counselling, I want to especially welcome you if you come from a marginalised group or community. No area or topic is off limits.
