New video from Matt at the bottom of the page.
A different counsellor... One session is often enough to get you back on track.... to you.
Many clients just don't resonate with the traditional counsellor approach. Matt has formidable training but works differently from traditional therapists. Matt is a heart-centred deeply empathic practitioner. He focuses on bringing you back to you - this is where the healing is. He is noted for his cheeky sense of humour and ability to, pretty quickly, support clients to transform negative emotions by feeling them. To do this, he uses many meditation and energy techniques along with intuitive insight and therapy approaches.
He specialises in anxiety, midlife questioning, depression, mood swings, feelings of 'lostness', addictions, transforming negative emotions, sex and relationships and more (please see further down for list of specialisms).
Matt's Cheshire counselling practice (he also works in Manchester and London) is based in Sandbach, near Congleton in Cheshire, but all sessions currently take place online or over the phone. Please see About Matt for further details of Matt, including his lived experiences, that all inform his work as a counsellor-therapist.
You may be looking for a counsellor who works differently, who can help you to make some sense of what's going on - whether globally or personally. It's been an intense time for us all, and it can help to make connections, with other human beings and with yourself. This can bring clarity.
