About me

Hello, my name is Matt.

I‘m an integrative, psychodynamic therapist specialising in anxiety, depression, ADHD and low-self-esteem. 

I work with clients who are looking to make a change. That might be change from how you think about yourself, your relationships, your professional life, or something else. I want you to feel like change is possible.

To believe that within yourself is everything you might need to find a new way of feeling or being. You just need a little help getting there. That's why I specialise in anxiety, depression, low-mood, low self-esteem, intrusive thoughts, trauma and eating disorders. These are all things that can, with help and support, begin to lose their intensity and hold over who you think you are.

I work in an open-ended, client-led environment. That means you decide how long, or how short the work we do together is, and what subjects to cover.

I believe a client knows the work they need to bring. My role is to create a safe, confidential space for you to explore how you are feeling, online or in person.

Training, qualifications & experience

I attended a three year training course, and attained more than 400 hours clinical experience across a range of issues including anxiety, depression, ADHD and low self-esteem.  

I'm BACP certified, and have extensive experience working with anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. 

On top of my psychotherapy qualification, I have also attended further training at Cambridge University, and I am certified in the following fields of therapeutic practice:

  • Working with Eating Disorders.
  • Working with Suicide.
  • Working with Trauma.
  • CBT.

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Further information

I work in an integrative, relational way. That means I use and combine different theories and approaches to help you find the best way forward. I also believe that it’s the relationship that heals us.

While other therapists may prefer to use labels and diagnoses to identify who you are, I believe in allowing a person to define who they think they are. I believe labels are limiting and rob us of the opportunity to redefine and reimagine our lives.

Having a space to explore, challenge and navigate the most difficult parts of yourself can only be done if you trust and feel held by the person sitting in front of you. This can take weeks, months, or even years. A big focus of my work is helping lay the foundations for that trusting relationship to emerge.
