Andrew Matthews BSc MA COSRT MBACP MNCS(Accred)
I am an experienced Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in Broadstairs assisting individuals, couples and family members. My work here follows a successful career in London helping people overcome various difficulties.
The approach I use is tailored to you and typically depends on the issue at hand. This style of working together is key to our success.
Whether your concern is recent, long-standing or an isolated event, I can offer you a safe and confidential environment where you can be yourself and speak your mind.
I work with a wide range of difficulties including struggles with anger, abuse, addiction, loss/grief, families, loneliness and depression.
I can also help with:
- Anxiety - Identifying causes that are preventing you from leading a healthier life.
- Self-Care - Building confidence, self-worth and ability to convey your needs to others.
- Relationships - Exploring behaviour and entanglement issues with partners, family and/or friends.
- Burnout - Understanding work/lifestyle stressors and establishing strategies to rejuvenate your motivation and purpose.
- Identity and Sexuality - Celebrating who you are and understanding your needs.
Well-being and happiness are possible. It sometimes needs hope and the right professional support.
