Relationship Counselling

You're worried about your relationship, you've lost that spark and are struggling to communicate, you're arguing more than you'd like. You've been unhappy for a while and have finally decided to do something about it.

Relationship counselling can provide a natural space where you can engage in constructive communication with your partner. You'll build trust and shared meaning and bring joy back into your relationship.

Anger Management

You're experiencing anger. It's overwhelming and controlling your life. You take it out on people close to you. You want to stop it, but it arises so fast. One minute you're normal, the next you're abusive or punching walls.

Matt is very professional, knowledgeable and a great listener. Matt allows you to explore how you feel in your own time without any pressure or judgement. Therapy was the best decision I made.

If You Feel Nervous or Afraid, I Hear You, And You Are Not Alone

With the pace of modern living increasing, it's easy to feel stressed and anxious. There may be moments when your heart pounds, your breathing quickens, your muscles tense, and you start to sweat. Or you may feel lost with a sense of despair. Or perhaps your relationship has hit a rocky patch, and you're not sure the best way forward.

You may be feeling:

  • Irritable
  • Overwhelmed
  • Constantly worrying
  • Lacking in confidence, energy and sleep
  • Low mood and constantly criticising yourself

If any of these problems or others affect your ability to live your life, then it may be time to try counselling in Peterborough.

It’s Possible to Start Feeling Better

As your counsellor, I will collaborate with you to find your best way forward.

Throughout my life, I've struggled with different problems. I would often find myself in situations where I felt unable to cope—panicking and reacting to situations in unhelpful ways.

Because of this, I know how hard life can be when you're facing these challenges. But it also allows me to know that overcoming problems is possible.
