Matt Ingrams Dip Couns, Dip Sup, MBACP(Accred)
I have been practicing for many years and continue to be inspired by my clients as I witness them change and move forward into happier and more fulfilling lives.If you are feeling bad or stuck in yourself, or are having relationship difficulties and want help getting to a new place of friendship and love please email or call me. I specialise in trauma therapy.
Come and see me for a free half hour consultation and start the ball rolling.
If you decided to come for a free consultation I would ask you to take a little time to decide whether you want to return for counselling so you would know it was 100% your decision.
If for any reason I could not see you I would tell you straightaway and offer you an alternative.
My practice is based on the coast, in Telscombe Cliffs. I mostly work face to face but I also offer phone or online counselling to those unable to attend in person.
I am passionate about my work and committed to my clients, whether I see them for a few sessions or over years.
I continually challenge myself to learn new developments in therapy and integrate the best into my practice.
Most recently I trained in Internal Family Systems therapy, a cutting edge therapy from the US which has taken the world of therapy by storm over there and is now growing over here. Before that I trained in Brainspotting, which is a powerful therapy technique developed by my trainer, David Grand in New York after working with survivors of 9/11. This technique is now one of many I have in my tool kit to help my clients with a huge variety of issues and struggles.
I am an integrative counsellor so I draw from a variety of models in service to my clients.
I have also developed and taught my own model which I now include only as part of a helping package.
In my experience, working from only one particular theory can lead to seeing everything through that prism and to not always being fully open to alternative, and sometimes more appropriate methods. That is why I am committed to working integratively.
I am an experienced trainer, facilitator and counsellor.
I supervise counsellors in private practise.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the CCPE in London for my certificate in counselling and therapy and then at Wealden College in Sussex, which is a BACP accredited organisation. I have a diploma in counselling. I began working as a counsellor 19 yrs ago and have worked in charitable and private sector organisations. I also have a diploma in supervision. I have trained in Brainspotting levels one and two. I have completed the three levels of Internal Family Systems Therapy training.
I am an accredited member of the BACP and abide by their code of ethics.

If, after going away and thinking about it, you decide to see me then we will book a mutually convenient appointment and go from there.
Sessions are one hour long and take place once a week (couple sessions may be 2 weekly), preferably at a regular time.
