Sam Matthews Counselling
I specialise in Person Centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at my home-based private practice. I have several years experience treating issues such as stress and depression, grief and bereavement, crisis and trauma, PTSD, anxiety, relationships, addictions, childhood abuse and self-harm.
I offer a free consultation to assess client’s needs. I have worked both in the U.K. and Australia and work with all ages. I am also able to offer Skype Counselling for those who would prefer it. My aim is to assist clients in gaining the strength and commitment to positively change and improve their life.
I have recently Compassion Focused Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to my mode of practice.
