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.

There are many reasons why people seek help for their emotional distress through counselling. You might be experiencing a range of emotions, such as anger, guilt, embarrassment, anxiety , and sadness. This might be because of something has happened and you want help with understanding how this has affected you. You may have lost a loved one and are looking for ways to cope with grief. You might be feeling stressed because of problems at work or in your relationships, and this is affecting your behaviour. You may be feeling low or anxious and want to change your thoughts so that you have more confidence and can enjoy life.

Feeling stuck, struggling to cope or feeling lost in your own head? Life is challenging and it’s not uncommon to experience periods in our life where we have lost our direction and meaning. Perhaps your past experiences are standing in the way of you leading the life you want. Talking your problems through with a professional can help you to make sense of things, uncover unconscious beliefs that may have been holding you back and work through difficult emotions.

We are told how important exercise is for our physical wellbeing, our mental health is no different. Therapy does change lives and for that reason, if you are unhappy, stressed and not sure what to do, you need to remember that life is short and you deserve to live the life you want. Put yourself first, and do what makes you happy! My approach is integrative, which means that I am trained in several different modalities, allowing me to work in a way that suits each unique client.

When a person experiences emotional trauma it can be the most frightening time in their life and talking to someone when we feel at our most vulnerable has the potential to be life changing .I am passionate about mental well-being and have had a 25 year career in Mental Health initially as a nurse and now a counsellor. I believe that events in our life and our experiences directly impact upon our psychological health. Seeking professional help in a safe and secure setting is often the first step towards recovery .

It can feel like such a leap in searching for someone to help, especially when it feels like most therapists seem to be saying the same things. I can identify with that, I found it difficult to know which direction to turn when I needed support and often felt like the profiles I was reading were too similar to be able to make a choice. I hope that, in reading this, you can get a sense of who I am and what I can offer you. If you are struggling to move forward and want to find a way through the darkness so life becomes less overwhelming then I can walk beside you, helping you to feel less scared.

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.

Are you going through a bereavement? Are you struggling with anxiety ? Have you been suffering with low mood? Do you feel lost, alone or confused? Being human can be tough and we can all experience difficulties with our mental health. This does not mean you are broken or need to be ‘fixed’, but instead you are having a normal human response to an abnormally painful, difficult or scary experience - it can help to talk.

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.
