I help you to find ways to manage anxiety and depression by finding out the roots of these feelings.
I work with depression, anxiety and with people who have experienced control, manipulation and abuse in their lives. Feeling low, stressed and anxious can impact hugely how we manage our day to day tasks. Often leads to isolation from friends and family, because we feel that people don't understand what we are going through. In fact, we often don't understand what we are feeling and why we feel so low or anxious. Being with someone controlling feels like 'walking on eggshells' -not knowing what to expect next. You doubt and question yourself in many ways.

Maybe you're going through a breakup, a bereavement, or stress at work. Maybe you finally feel ready to deal with a trauma from years past. Maybe you're struggling with depression or anxiety . Or maybe there's nothing really wrong, but life feels like something to be endured rather than enjoyed. Whatever it is, counselling can help. I've struggled with mental health issues myself, and I know how daunting it can be to admit there's a problem and ask for help. But if you're willing to put the work in, counselling can help you cope with a difficult situation or make changes in your life.

Hi my name is Matt and welcome to my page where I hope you will get to me know me a bit and how we can work together. Experience has shown me that counselling is a process that takes time, needing patience and consistency and that taking the 1st step can seem daunting. Knowing where to start or how to tackle challenges can seem overwhelming, intimidating, and frustrating. The counselling process can be exciting as well as causing some anxiety , it provokes feelings as you start to make changes. I offer a therapeutic space that is safe and non-judgemental where I look forward to helping you get to understand yourself a bit better.

A therapist with a passion for helping adults build self-worth to reduce symptoms of Anxiety and Depression. Self-worth is an important part of our mental health, because lacking self-worth means that we never feel good enough, despite our best efforts. You may be someone that worries about what others think about you, you may fear making mistakes, put pressure on yourself to please others, doubt yourself a lot of the time and you may hide parts of yourself away from the world. The thoughts and behaviours linked to having low self-worth can leave us feeling exhausted, anxious, angry or depressed.

I am a person-centred counsellor, which means I place an emphasis on helping you to build your resilience and confidence when issues arise in your to day to day life. As a counsellor I do not judge your thoughts, feelings or actions, but rather help you to understand these for yourself.

Whether that be a low mood, anxiety or depression or if you’re struggling with a bereavement or loss.
Are you finding life hard work, struggling with a low mood or losing your temper at the smallest of things? Do you feel out of control and that life is not what it's meant to be? Then maybe I can help. If you'd like to feel more in control, less overwhelmed or anxious then talking therapies can really help. Many of my clients come to me exhausted from trying to take control of their life, struggling to manage their anger and feeling worthless. After a few sessions most clients notice that life begins to feel less stressful, their relationships start to improve and the joy of living begins to return.

Work Related Stress is a common condition in a modern world full of pressures and demands, whether we work as part of a company or have our own business we are open to various trying situations and circumstances that leave us feeling vulnerable and unable to cope.

I offer One to one Counselling for- Adult trauma, Addiction, Anxiety , Depression, Life transition and Stress.
How to explain what counselling is... If you're holding a cup of coffee and somebody accidentally bumps into you, you will most likely spill a drop or two, or depending on the bump impact a few spoonfuls or more. If there had been tea or something else in your cup, the result would be the same. Your emotions and feelings are like the coffee, because sometimes when life comes along and shakes you (which will happen to us all) whatever is inside your cup will spill out. Sometimes life can be easier until you get bumped.....but then you may need somebody to talk to, this is where counselling can help.

Anxiety Counsellors

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other popular forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
