Matt works with clients using a humanistic approach, by primarily facilitating a non-judgmental, empathic space for clients to explore their lives and feelings. He tries to understand the process by which clients deliver their story; by that he means perhaps looking at how the story is delivered, the words chosen, as well as body language and tone to obtain a deeper understanding of the content and how the client came to tell their story in a specific way. His intention is to see things from the perspective of the client so that the client and him can try and move forward together.
Matt currently works for an International Health Insurance Company in a Customer Facing Role and has 11 years of experience and involvement in highly stressful and at times deeply upsetting situations. Similarly, this experience along with being well travelled has given Matt a strong grasp of many different global cultures. Matt understands the difficulties and pain that can be the result of familial, professional, and relationship-based issues and that these are trying and at times exhausting problems to navigate and move forward with. He believes that each person has an inner strength that can be drawn upon to do so, and that distress related to even the seemingly most enduring and challenging life experiences, can be alleviated by drawing on this resolve.
Matt is a Humanistic Counsellor, training towards a Professional Diploma in Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counselling. He is a student member of the BACP and a placement counsellor at the Awareness Centre’s Low-Cost counselling service in Tooting.
