Hi, I'm Matthew Mcginty, (Diploma).  

I'm a counsellor, but you might also call me a good listener and a friend. 

I help people who are struggling find the peace and joy they deserve. 

Together, we'll explore how to get to a place where your ups and downs are manageable.

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 your 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 are affecting your ability to live your life, then may be time to try counselling in Cambridge.

It’s Possible to Start Feeling Better

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

Through the course of 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.
