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.

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.

There can be many reasons to seek counselling: it may be a current issue, a general feeling of mental unease, a past trauma that is still troubling you or perhaps a sense of wanting to know yourself better. Whatever is causing you unease at the moment we will explore and work through. There will be a curiosity of what may be unconsciously affecting you from your early years and the relationships you had. I am experienced in working with many different areas including bereavement, anxiety, family issues and feeling low. Perhaps you are looking to explore who you are and have a better understanding of yourself.

We are currently living in unsettling and uncertain times, Such persistent uncertainty in our lives can lead to abnormally raised levels of anxiety, insecurity and fear. At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, these were likely to arise from fear for your health and those close to you, the grief arising from bereavement, the strain of social isolation and the financial consequences of unemployment, loss of financial security. The current cost of living crisis can only make things worse.You are in acute need of support but reluctant to burden friends or family because they may also be struggling their own pressures and stress.

Not everyone has the same approach to life's problems such as personal and psychosexual relationships, grief, loss, bereavement, illness and stress, nor to the typical challenges of family relationships. The context of culture, ethnicity, race, gender, class, sexual orientation and spiritual beliefs influence the ways in which we view the world and how the world views us. I work with couples and families, children, teens and individuals, to resolve issues in a way that is sensitive to their culture and context; and together we develop solutions that are congruent with their values. I like to work from a strengths based orientation

Family Therapy Counsellors

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
