Hello, I'm Matthew and I work in the Boston Manor area between Ealing and Brentford, with individuals or couples.
Taking the step to seek counselling can be a difficult one, but it's a process which many find very rewarding.
If you choose to work with me you will see that I use a person-centred approach, putting you and your experience at the centre of our work. I take a non-judgmental position, working alongside you to support you to grow in whichever direction you feel is right.
As well as practicing counselling and psychotherapy indoors, I am also trained in "Wild Therapy". If working outdoors is something that interests you or you would like any more information about this approach, please let me know.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have 6 years of experience of working as a counsellor and over 14 years experience of working 1-2-1 in the helping professions.
I hold a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from The Minster Centre in London and a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from Middlesex University.
As well as seeing clients in private practice on Mondays, I currently manage a counselling service across a group of schools in London, where I work therapeutically with teachers and parents, and manage a team of therapists who work with children.
As well as working within private practice, I have wide experience of working as a counsellor in different settings including Higher Education, the NHS, with staff and parents in schools, and in a charity. I have experience of short-term and long-term work.
