‘I believe that life is a process and that we all have the capacity to grow. We all make mistakes, struggle at times, and go through difficult life moments. Through open and honest dialogue we can gain more insight and perspective about ourselves, identify potential obstacles, and begin moving in a more positive direction.’
Matt is a warm and supportive person who believes that openness, collaboration, and human connection are essential to attaining positive outcomes in therapy.

His approach to therapy is very humanistic, person centred, and grounded in mindfulness. Matt is curious, passionate, and patient. He believes in collaboration when setting out and attaining goals in therapy, and he works hard to tailor an approach that is holistic, evidence based, and unique to the needs of every client.
Matt’s areas of interest are depression, anxiety, stress, addiction, LGBTQ issues, phobias, and adjustment to difficult life circumstances. Matt works with adults and adolescents within an interpersonal and object relations framework, and uses cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and other evidence based therapies where appropriate.
