COGNITIVE BEHAVIOUR THERAPY
Mental health is becoming a greater issue within society. Matthew currently runs a mental health and well-being clinic one evening a week. During the clinic athletes and the general public can book in for Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy aimed at specific problems that they are facing. An overview of the specific problems that I work with can be found below. If the problem you face is not there please get in contact to discuss your specific requirements and I will do everything I can to accommodate.
Cognitive-behaviour therapy is a talking and doing therapy based on the principle that the way you think and behave can have a significant impact on the way you feel and function. Typically you can expect to have an initial clinical in-take, an assessment session, followed by a number of treatment sessions depending on the problems you present with.
This is your chance to talk about your problems and challenges in a safe and supportive one to one environment.
Matthew will look to help you understand your problem through a logical and focussed approach that aims to improve your view of your situation and give you the coping strategies required to help.
Matthew will come along side you, educate you, provide you with a greater understanding of how and why you think, feel, and behave in the way you do, in order to help you solve the problems you face.
When a number of clients contact me with a similar issue, I will offer the opportunity to take part in a support group environment which will aid in providing you with support and challenge in order to overcome the problems you face.
The benefits of group based work are that you will get to share your experiences with people who are going through similar things to you, who will be able to share their solutions to the same problems, and to have an increased level of social support.
Group therapy is not for everyone and therefore attendance at groups will be considered on a case by case basis.
