Integrative Counsellor

Matthew is an Integrative counsellor who works using his comprehensive understanding of different theoretical approaches to human psychological development which enable him to be intune with each individual's needs. He aims to offer a private space which is empathic, safe and trustworthy in which to explore difficult and confusing feelings. Working relationally means that he will use the relationship which develops between himself and the individual as an important tool to help bring understanding. This will hopefully enable the individual to develop a clearer head space to think, and to help them accept their anxieties and personal pain.

Matthew has a background in working in different therapeutic based support roles. He has worked as a mentor in a secondary school for teenage students, a support worker for neurodivergent service users, and as a learning support assistant, helping students with different mental health issues reintegrate back into education. He has also worked as a therapist for support workers and more recently, has been working in private practice gaining experience working with a range of individuals experiencing varied issues including anxiety, depression, anger, low self-esteem and relationship issues, alongside working as a medical administrator at a local GP surgery.

Matthew holds a degree (BA Hons) in Integrative counselling from the University of Suffolk. He has also completed various CPD training courses including; Cognitive Analytical Therapy (CAT), The Only-child Adult and the Phantasy Sibling Transference, Understanding the Impact of Baby Loss and Attachment Theory Beyond Bowlby.  
Matthew is  a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
