Andrew Matthews BSc MA MBACP Counsellor/Psychotherapist

I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist based in the coastal town of Broadstairs. My work here follows a successful career in central London providing therapy for a wide range of difficulties.
The method I use is ‘integrative’ which means I can adopt different forms of therapy such as Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and CBT. This makes for better choices and greater flexibility.
This approach involves working together to find the best possible outcome for you as an individual or as a couple. Our partnership is vital for success. Research and my experience consistently supports this.
Our work can explore any of your concerns. These might include issues with anger, abuse, panic attacks, addiction, shame, sadness and depression.
I also offer assistance with:
Anxiety - Identifying causes that are preventing you from leading a healthier life.
Self-Care - Examining confidence, worthiness and ability to convey your needs to others.
Relationships - Exploring behaviour and entanglement issues affecting relations with partners, family and friends.
Identity and Sexuality - Understanding who you are and discovering what you need.
Well-being and happiness is possible. It sometimes just needs a little hope and the right professional support.
