My main areas of specialism are relationship and sexual issues, disordered eating, and recovery from adverse childhood experiences, including sexual abuse .
Sometimes the difficulties you have in the present are influenced by how things have been for you in the past. How you have coped with the tough experiences, the beliefs you have developed about yourself and the world, your habitual responses. You want to improve things for yourself but you can't see a way through. Maybe you have tried other ways of getting better, maybe with some success, but the underlying problems just turn up in different ways. You are here because you know that you are not out of options. Online Psychotherapy has helped many people like you. And with me, you are in a safe pair of hands.

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I'm an Integrative Relational psychotherapist and a supervisor in training. As a psychotherapist I use my experience of talking and relating to you in sessions to understand your way of being in the world, how you make sense of it and how you relate to others. Your journey is unique. Every time I've been listened to and understood I've come away feeling cared for and valued with a new sense of worth. I've learned that change is inevitable and that how I care for myself in the present affects my future.

I appreciate that it can feel difficult in asking for help and to put trust in someone you have never met, especially with often upsetting and difficult issues. It can feel like we may have somehow failed or its a last resort in trying to resolve difficulties. I have helped many people like yourself, who also felt unsure initially on what to expect and feelings of trepidation or embarrassment in asking for help. I believe that the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client is all important to be effective in addressing the issues and helping you to make the changes that you want and to get things back on track.

If nothing changes, how will you feel a year from now? You may have an idea of where you want to go, or you might just know you want things to be different, and are unsure how. I can help you work out the direction you want to go, and how to start heading there. What could this mean to you? Less stress or low moods, improved relationships with yourself and others, perhaps more self-esteem and confidence, better sleep and a healthier mindset or maybe it’s about putting the past behind you once and for all.

Life can feel tough and challenging at times. This may be following a specific life event, a change of circumstance, or for reasons completely unexpected or unknown. When we are struggling with something difficult we can often feel unhappy, confused, anxious or overwhelmed, with a sense of feeling stuck and unsure of where to start or what to do. Whatever your reason for accessing therapy, I believe that we all have the capacity for change and positive personal growth and that counselling can support you to bring about the change you want by helping you to find ways of placing yourself back in control.

Life can be hard at times. We can experience loss, changes in our health, family circumstances or work life. Maybe our relationships are not fulfilling our needs and we do not know how to change things. At times, we don’t feel good about ourselves, we lose confidence in our ability to cope with life or maybe we feel impacted by past experiences or held back through feelings of anger, shame or guilt. Sometimes we don’t know what’s wrong, but we just know something isn’t right. I can help you explore what is going on for you by giving you a supportive space to talk and be heard.

Hello, I'm Matthew. Sometimes it can be too painful or difficult to face things and our attempts to escape them can cause just as much discomfort. I’ve been there, and the counselling I received was so transformative I decided to train as a therapist and dedicate myself to helping other people who are struggling — I know that things can get so much better, no matter how bad they seem.
