Matthew Pronger PGDip
Sometimes we need a space to understand what it is we are feeling and better understand ourselves. I am a trained counsellor/psychotherapist, and I offer a safe, confidential environment in which we can explore the thoughts, feelings and events that can trouble our mental health and well-being.
What might we talk about?
We could work together on a variety of issues. You may have had a recent diagnosis, such as generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder or depression. Alternatively you might not have a diagnosis, but need a space to discuss relationship or family issues, troubling thoughts and talk in a safe, non-judgemental environment. If you are uncertain if I could help you, please contact me or check my website.
How many times/how long would I see you for?
I understand that no two people are the same, so we'll work together to build a relationship that works for you. The work we do together can be adapted to suit your needs in terms of the type of therapy you want, or the length of therapy. Short and long term psychotherapy is available.
Often it is difficult when we begin to know what you need. Usually, after an assessment, we would discuss working to 6 sessions. In the 6th session we can review our work and discuss whether or not you would like to continue. This gives you some control over how many/frequently you would like to meet and whether or not you wish to continue. This is flexible, and I welcome any questions you might have about this, so we can work to suit you.
I can offer some evening or Saturday morning slots; please contact me if you would like more information.
What kind of therapy is this?
I integrate CBT, Person-Centred and Attachment therapy to help you explore, understand and grow, and support you facing the challenges life can present you with. More information about this is available on my website.
How would I start therapy?
If you would like to start counselling/psychotherapy with me, first we would arrange an agreeable time to meet for an assessment. I typically see clients at a discrete and comfortable counselling centre on Abbeydale Rd, Sheffield.
During this session we can work together to find how to work together and discuss any concerns or anxieties you might have about counselling/psychotherapy. This is a great time to ask questions about myself or the process of counselling.
Assessments are up to 90 minutes long and charged at £45.
I have a question.
