Matthew Robinson (MBACP, UKCP), Certified Transactional Analyst psychotherapy

About me

I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor practising in east London, offering therapy for both individuals and couples. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore your life and relationships.

I use Transactional Analysis (TA) as my main theoretical framework from a relational perspective. TA can assist in understanding why we may get stuck in repetitive patterns of unfulfilling behaviour.

Research indicates that the single most important aspect of successful therapy is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client.

I therefore invite you to sit down with me in a relaxed, informal way so we can talk. I help you make better sense of your experiences, thoughts, and emotions.  Together we can discover meanings, recognise patterns, and explore options.

After an initial assessment and depending on the presenting issues, we can agree a therapeutic contract in which we may decide upon a limited number of sessions, or longer term and open-ended work.

I practise in Limehouse, within easy reach of Mile End and Canary Wharf.

I am a Member of the BACP and adhere to their code of ethics.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
