We live in a world which throws a lot at us, and expects a lot of us. And, very often, we expect a lot of ourselves too. For many of us, it can help to talk through what we’re dealing with, to help us understand what’s going on and find a way forward. Whether you’re dealing with anger, anxiety, bereavement, depression, identity, loneliness, powerlessness, relationship difficulties, or simply want to talk things through, I offer a confidential, non-judgmental space to explore what you’re feeling, and how you can manage it. We’re all different and we all need to find our own way. I can help you do that.

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.

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.

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor/psychotherapist based in New Mills, High Peak. I offer weekday appointments. If you are finding some aspects of life to be difficult, I can work with you to make life more enjoyable. Sometimes it is not the obvious content of a therapy session which brings about change or growth, but the relational process of having a safe supportive counselling relationship which can help you to gain freedom from your fears and anxieties. The relationship I build with my clients empowers positive change. I also provide training to organisations and clinical supervision to other counsellors and trainees.

Through my counselling training, work and life experiences, I have realised that every person and every problem is unique. Counselling protects your autonomy and allows you to feel that you are being listened to and valued; that your issues are real and important but significantly they can be worked through and there is a way to move on. It gives you a space which is confidential, secure and supportive whatever the issue whether it's a problem with a relationship or the devastation of grief. I see my clients as valuable human beings who are temporarily lost and confused and my job is to help them find clarity and hope.

Couples Counselling

Does couples counseling work?

Research shows that couples counseling is effective; it can reduce relationship distress and improve emotional awareness, communication, empathy, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction. For example, emotionally focused therapy was found to be effective for about 75 percent of couples, and those benefits lasted at least two years.

When should a couple seek counseling?

Couples can benefit from counseling if they consistently struggle in their relationship. They may have lost the ability to communicate effectively, become entrenched in harmful patterns, begun to fight more than usual, broken the other’s trust, suffered from a mental or physical illness, or faced any number of other challenges. Many therapists offer free consultations, so if a couple isn’t sure whether therapy is necessary, asking directly can provide clarity.

How can I get my partner to go to couples therapy?

The decision to seek couples therapy is often driven by one partner, who then convinces the other to participate. When discussing the idea, the initiator should be direct and assertive. They can state the problems they see and explain how the relationship would benefit from therapy. In more serious cases, they can also explain how their relationship may suffer without making any changes or seeking professional help.

How does a couple prepare for couples counseling?

The anticipation of beginning couples counseling can be difficult—sometimes more difficult than the first session itself. Taking a few moments to reflect can allay those concerns: What are the current challenges? When and how did they begin? What do they want the relationship to look like in the future? Reflecting on these questions can help individuals or couples articulate their goals. Of course, the therapist will also ask questions and guide couples through the process.
