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 - sex issues - 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. Matt works with non sex issues too.

"I have worked with Matt for over a year now and absolutely love my sessions with him. Matt is a fantastic listener and takes a unique yet professional approach which I've not had before in previous therapy appointments. This has really helped me feel completely relaxed so I can address my issues with no shame, fear or judgement. Matt takes his time with his sessions and ensures all points are covered. I began sessions on a fortnightly basis but now only have a top up session when I feel like I need to which is always enough. I always feel so much better after my appointments and always look forward to seeing him. "
