I'm Matt, a UKCP psychotherapist and NCPS counsellor with experience in the voluntary sector and private practice since 2011. If you are experiencing emotional or psychological difficulties, then I can be of help. I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential service. As a gestalt therapist I focus on developing your awareness of the issues or what troubles you that you wish to change. By helping you to more clearly identify patterns of your behaviour, thoughts and emotions, I aim to help in developing enough support and insight to make the changes or choices that, on your own, may have seemed elusive or impossible up until now.

Urban living therapy and well being, is an umbrella term for the type of therapy that I offer. I am a clinical psychologist with over 15 years experience of working with people with complex psychological issues. Very often what brings clients into therapy with me is an accumulation of live stressors, both from past experiences and current everyday challenges. Anxiety, depression, poor emotional coping, self-harm, interpersonal or relationship issues are the areas they wish to address. My clients seek to resolve old issues and develop better ways of managing their emotions and relationships with others.

You feel like you can’t cope, you’re fed up, you’ve had enough. Your life isn’t what you want it to be. Living has become hard and there’s no joy in your world. It’s like everyone else except you is happy. You’re haunted by your past. You think you’ll never be happy again. You feel alone like no one else understands how hard your life is at the moment. On the outside you look fine but inside you feel like you’re dying. Everything you do feels like an act to look like you’re okay. You don’t know how to change things or what to do about it anymore.

I believe every person is the expert in their own life. Together we can explore the circumstances that are feeling difficult for you, with space to reflect, hear yourself think and take a deeper look at what might be behind what's happening for you. Whether you're feeling stuck, struggling to overcome painful experiences, or feeling trapped in patterns you can't seem to change. I won't tell you what to do, but I will help you to find your own insights and clarity to process your feelings and move forward in ways that work for you.

Hi I'm Sarah and I specialise in working anxiety, depression and trauma. Maybe you are feeling anxious, overwhelmed or exhausted. Maybe you are struggling to cope with a traumatic life event. Or maybe you are generally finding life unmanageable at the moment. At times we can lose our way unintentionally and then find it difficult to get back onto the right path. If this sounds familiar, my therapy approach can help you regain some strength, clarity and balance so that you can feel more calm and back in control of your life.

Going to therapy can be hard; having to share inner conflicts and pain can feel exposing, yet liberating. My purpose is to create an empowering environment with you for these vulnerabilities to be safely shared. At EK Therapy, my aim is to reduce barriers of access for individuals and communities that feel like care systems have not fully understood their needs. Embedded in Sikh Ethos, I value honesty, non-judgement and universal truth. “EK” in Gurmukhi means “One.” Integration of the Soul, Mind and Body means we’re able to reach a more fulfilled state and way of living.
