Hello, I am a clinical psychologist with over 14 years’ experience working in the NHS, private practice and the hospice. Sometimes life can feel like a real struggle and it's hard just getting through the day. At times like these, we have the potential for understanding what matters to us and why our life isn't working out the way we would like. Sometimes the struggle can lead to real insight. Getting back onto the right path for us can help us to feel better and also to understand our individual purpose in life.

Life can be difficult, full of uncertainties and challenges, which can naturally leave us at times feeling distressed, overwhelmed, confused or alone. When we are feeling high levels of stress or anxiety it can be difficult to make sense of what is happening to us or how to move forward, sometimes it can be completely debilitating and frightening. At times we simply need space to explore a situation, a relationship or our sense of self. Whatever your reason for seeking therapy at this time, I would like to offer you a safe, compassionate space to explore what you need to and help you find a way forward that feels right for you.

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.

I am a British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) registered counsellor offering counselling support within York city centre to young people (16+) and adults. Perhaps you feel overwhelmed, anxious or confused by recent or past life events.  You may feel stuck; finding yourself making the same unhelpful life choices or struggle with relationships, repeating negative patterns.  You may need the space to find some self healing and acceptance.  It is not my place to tell you what you need to do, rather we will work together to help you find clarity, move forward and regain control. We may work short or long term.

With much understandable anxiety, overwhelm, depression, loss and sadness at this time, I offer a caring, safe, confidential, supportive and non-judgemental space to explore whatever brings you to therapy at this time. Alongside you, I may work towards enabling a surer sense of yourself; safely working with relationship issues (in the past or present); to understand life-changes (e.g. divorce/separation/retirement/identity issues/ bereavement and loss); and in working traumatic moments or life-events. I offer short and longer term work. Each session can potentially discover something new as a spur to growth and healing.

There are times in life when we feel like we’ve been knocked out of shape and we don’t know how to feel better. We can feel out of control and struggle to cope. It could be that we suspect difficult experiences in the past are affecting our lives now or that a relationship is caught in a never-ending loop. This is all normal and it happens to us all, often many times throughout life. It’s so important that we can ask for help without feeling ‘like a failure’ or that spending money and time on ourselves is self-indulgent. On the contrary, counselling can be the best investment we ever make – for ourselves and also for those we love.

I am an experienced, registered therapist offering tailored interventions to individuals. Anxiety, depression, or relational issues can present as struggles in modern life and can be influenced by pressures which may have social, political or cultural influences which are better managed once recognized and explored. Experiences, like past abuse, trauma or adversity can impact on life here and now although we may be unaware of their influence. Therapy can help to offer clarity and understanding. By developing emotional regulation & building resilience and stability, new opportunities and achievable life-goals are created.

Sometimes life feels more difficult than usual and it can be hard to know where to turn for support. You may be overwhelmed, full of anxiety, or sad and unable to find any joy. Perhaps you're feeling lost, wondering how to get the spark back in your life. Counselling is a place where you can explore what's going on and how you feel without fear of being being judged. You don't have to pretend to be OK, you don't have to be 'fine'. You can be yourself and together we will find a way for you to live more happily. This is your time, your space to breathe, to begin to understand, accept and heal.
