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.

My areas of interest are working to assist others to find meaning and direction in times of personal difficulty. As a client you may yearn to have deeper understanding of your inner world and make sense of how it manifests in your life, or maybe you just need to be in a space where you feel cared for and heard – I offer a warm empathic approach, to support feeling safe so to enable you, to journey at your pace to tell your story and express yourself. Counselling can allow you to find awareness of your natural hidden ability to cope, which will support you in managing your life more effectively in relationships and other areas.

These are challenging times and issues that have felt manageable or in the past may have come to the surface. I aim to provide a safe and confidential space where we can work together to help you make sense of your experiences, thoughts and feelings at a pace that feels right for you.

There are many reasons why people come to therapy. It may be a major life crisis or a specific issue, or it may be that you are struggling with day-to-day life and would value someone to talk to and gain clarity. I understand that asking for help can be daunting; I also know that seeking counselling may be the first (big!) step to a happier future. I will work at your pace and the work we do will be collaborative. I believe that the relationship between us (me, the counsellor and you, the client) is crucial to successful therapy and I will strive to build a safe and trusting environment in which you feel able to open up.

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.

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.

Everybody experiences life differently and sometimes it helps to have support to make sense of what is happening for you. Perhaps you have had a bereavement, loss or other change in your life? Or maybe you have just found yourself at a place where you feel stuck and you are not quite sure why you feel this way? Life can sometimes be challenging. Events in the present or the past can trigger unwanted thoughts or overwhelming feelings and it is not always easy to talk to family or friends about what’s going on for you. I offer a safe, accepting environment where you can express yourself freely and without fear of judgement.

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.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in YO1 are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in YO1 then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in YO1, or Child Psychologists in YO1.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like YO1 psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in YO1 specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
