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.

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.

Life can you hit you hard! I know this from experience. The good news is, that there is always a way back, no matter how hopeless the situation might feel at the time. The fact that you are here right now shows that you have the inner strength and desire to move forward. That in itself is huge, and the first step towards discovering (or re-discovering) the person that you truly are. Maybe you are feeling stressed? or suffer from anxiety ? Are you struggling with a past traumatic experience? or the loss of a loved one? You could be stuck in a rut and not know why? Whatever it may be, remember that it does not have to be permanent.

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.

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.

For some, life throws us a curveball and often when we’re least expecting it. Others may feel that pressures have been building over a long period of time. We can face challenges and get stuck which sometimes can be overwhelming. Depression, anxiety , stresses and issues in life may lead you to needing a person to talk to who is neutral, non-judgmental, empathetic and a good listener. Your wellbeing is important to me so I will treat you with the upmost respect and work with you to help achieve your goals. Based in Eccleshall I am close to Stafford, Stone, Market Drayton, Loggerheads, Stoke, Newport and Telford.

With regards to specific issues, I specialise in anxiety related issues such as GAD, OCD and panic .
Choosing a therapist can be a tricky task, there are just so many! As a guide, a big factor for therapeutic success is 'connection' - also known as 'the therapeutic alliance'. There is little you can see from a profile but perhaps take a moment to pause and check inwardly whether there is potential for a good therapeutic relationship. This practice is known as 'focusing'. I frequently use this method to help my clients access edge of awareness experiences that often were part of their life for many years. If you'd like to explore parts of yourself that you find burdening or at least unhelpful my approach may be of 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.
