Matt Treadwell, MBACP
Hello, I'm an experienced counsellor working in private practice in central London (W1W). I specialise in relational psychodynamic therapy. I am also trained in and draw on humanistic approaches. This allows me to tailor my practice to each client.
I work individually with adults. My main focus is on exploring clients' patterns of thoughts, feelings and relationships (both with themselves and with others) and considering how these relate to what is currently troubling them, and perhaps to important life experiences in their past.
I have experience working in both the NHS and third sector with problems including depression, anxiety, addictions and compulsive behaviours, relationship and marital problems, abuse, trauma and bereavement. I also have experience working with more complex and enduring problems, including diagnoses of personality disorder.
I believe that there is no problem too small or big for therapy. It can also be helpful to clients who aren't currently experiencing distress but are interested in getting to know themselves better, and gaining insight into the choices they may have made in the past, be making in the present, or thinking about making in the future.
I provide both short-term work focusing on a particular issue and longer-term work exploring life experiences in depth. I offer an initial consultation to discuss your expectations and needs, where we can decide which approach might work best for you.
If you're thinking about therapy but aren't sure, please don't hesitate to contact me and we can have an initial conversation on the phone.
