About me

Hi, I am Matt. No-one is perfect and sometimes we need to reach out and find someone that will give us the support we need when we are looking for answers.

As a Person-Centred Counsellor - also trained in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and EMDR - I see my role as providing a ‘safe space’ where you are free to explore your thoughts and feelings at your own pace. I believe that through my attitude of honesty, understanding, and valuing you may become better able to accept all aspects of yourself.

My role is not one of expert, though I have training and experience, I believe you hold the answers to your dilemmas (you are the expert on you!). My aim is to offer you a set of attitudes and values which will enable us to find what you are looking for; helping you find the 'place' you want to be.

I am an accredited member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and adhere to their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.

Most of all I want to convey that in coming to see me you will be valued and respected for who you are; free to explore your feelings, problems, thoughts and options without fear of judgement.
