Hello and welcome to my profile. My name is Matt Baker. I am a person-centred, humanistic counsellor though I work with a range of techniques including CBT and Transactional Analysis. We can be combined these to best suit your needs and the way you want to work.
I offer help with a wide range of counselling issues through a confidential service in Ringwood close to the Ringwood Medical Centre. You may prefer to meet in your own home and I can usually arrange this.
Please do call if you would like to discuss your situation, what outcomes you are aiming to achieve and whether working with me would be your best option. In addition to my general services I can offer specialist addiction counselling.
I have been in private practice in Ringwood for the past six years. Before moving to Hampshire I worked as a counsellor and group-worker for five years at Kenward Trust, a provider of residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation in Kent.

My first aim is to provide you with a safe place to explore your issues confidentially, ultimately leading to the discovery of solutions that best work for you.
