Sex worker therapy: Counselling for sex workers plus training for professionals (doctors, nursing staff, project workers, counsellors etc.) on how to work with sex workers nonjudgementally and appropriately. Please see website for details and click on 'Counselling for Sexworkers'.
Other addictions worked with - social media, online. Please enquire. Matt has a specific service to help address the need to detox from social media.
Matt is a heart-centred practitioner and natural energy worker with recognised professional qualifications - his approach is intuitive and integrative. His practice is disabled friendly, sex worker affirmative and poly/kink/sex positive. Disclaimer - often clients seek sex and relationship support to address a specific sex or relationship issue. This may be entirely appropriate. Matt has found though that often the sex/relationship issue is a symptom, rather than a cause. He reserves the right to not go in the direction of the sex issue, if this is causing a distraction to the deeper issue. Do feel free to discuss this with him prior to starting therapy.
