About me

Hello, my name is Matt and I am an Existential Counsellor.This means I take a calm, rational approach to help my clients safely explore thoughts and feelings to promote personal growth.

While looking at the bigger questions of life can allow reflection and insight into our daily lives, I firmly believe that counselling helps most when it is client led and am happy to adapt my methodology to my clients needs.

Practising in various areas around Bristol allows easy access to my services with public transport and parking available within walking distance. I have a range of session times to accommodate for a a busy lifestyle with weekend and evening appointments available.  Being a member of the BACP* ensures a commitment to evidence based practice as well as a strict ethical and moral framework.

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.
