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

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
