Welcome to my website
Hello, my name is Matthew and I am an Existential counsellor working in Poole, Dorset.
The world likes to try and tell us who we are and what we should be doing by putting us into boxes and trying to get us to conform to labels. A lot of life's problems come from when we don't feel like we belong in those boxes or that we don't fit those labels. We can struggle to see what choices we can make and what direction we should take in life. Therapy is an opportunity to help you understand who you are, who you want to be, and how you can move towards that possibility.
I work Existentially, which is a way of therapy that asks important philosophical questions about who we are, our choices, and our meaning in life.
Recent events have brought about a huge amount of uncertainty and we're all having to make changes to our lives. Existential therapy gives a chance to look at where we are and what's going on in our lives, and to deal with current challenges such as anxiety and isolation.
I offer a safe space in which to open up this understanding of who you are; free from judgement, and free from labels. It is your time and space to uncover who you are, who you want to be and how you could accomplish this. I have worked with many different issues but have worked extensively with child abuse, abuse, trauma, anxiety, and men's issues.
