Matt is an experienced psychotherapist working with adults who seek help with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, trauma, relationship and family issues. He believes that everyone has a unique potential for growth. Benefits of therapy can include improved self esteem, reduced stress, more resilience, better decision making, and more enjoyable relationships. Therapy can help you to identify unhelpful patterns that keep you stuck, and make different choices that enhance your life.


Matt began working in mental health in the late 1990’s when he trained and qualified as a mental health nurse. He subsequently worked for many years in the NHS where he completed my training as a psychotherapist. He was originally trained in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and its ethos and values continue to underpin the way that he works. He finds CAT to be an insightful and practical approach that helps people get to the root of their difficulties.
Matt has 25 years experience working within the NHS and private practice. This includes working with a wide range of people experiencing a very wide range of different issues which include anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and PTSD. Qualifications and specialist training include: UKCP & ACAT accredited Cognitive Analytic Psychotherapist and Supervisor, Qualified EMDR Therapist, EFT Level 1 and 2, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Level 1, Diploma (distinction) Mental Health Nursing.
