    Hi, I'm Matthew Mcginty, (MA, MSc, 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 or constantly criticising yourself

    If any of these problems or others are affecting 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.

    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 are facing these challenges. But it also allows me to know that overcoming problems is possible.

    1-2-1 Coaching

    I have spent a lot of my life battling with my mind and it’s habit of constant, obsessive, repetitive (negative) thinking. To start to understand that I need to observe my thoughts/mind with kindness and observe my thoughts with interest and return to ‘the moment’ via the breath, has helped me enormously to feel I can move forward more peacefully.


    Kindness, Comfort and Direction I needed

    I thoroughly enjoyed my counselling with Matt at Mental Wellness Counselling. There's too much to put into words, but Matt helped me overcome the most intense anxiety attacks and gave me the kindness, comfort and direction I needed to get on with my life. If your thinking of counselling or worried about anything in your life try this kind and caring man.

    8-week Mindfulness Now Course

    I am a NHS consultant who has suffered recurrent episodes of depression and was at the point of ‘burn-out’ prior to attending the 8-week Mindful Now. The course has taught me so much about myself and my habitual patterns of negative thinking. Myself and my family are already seeing the benefits of incorporating mindfulness into my daily routine and I am keen to develop the basic skills and knowledge that I have acquired.

    I was nervous about attending but Matt is such a calm and friendly guy that I immediately felt at ease. Now I've learnt so much about how to manage my stress. I feel much better. I am more calmer and relaxed and able to appreciate life more. Some of the best Counselling in Peterborough.
