About me

Hi. I’m Mat a fully qualified person centred counsellor who passionately believes in providing an empathic, friendly and supportive environment for you to feel safe to explore your emotions, thoughts and insecurities as we build a positive therapeutic relationship. 

I have 5 years of experience working for Harbour support services, dealing with domestic and sexual abuse, both current and historic. Also depression anxiety and low self esteem.  The first session is totally free which allows us to meet for you to feel settled and comfortable as you commence your therapeutic journey.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
