Matthew Gorner MA, PGDip, Reg. BACP
Therapist & Counsellor
I am a fully qualified psychosynthesis counsellor registered with the British Association of Psychotherapists and Counsellers. I live in Dalston, North London with my parrot Hudson.
My approach is a client-centred and holistic blending of psychological approaches (Psychodynamic, Existential and Internal Family Systems) tailored to each person as an individual soul with a unique life and specific needs.
I work well with creatives and young professionals on a variety of issues often around finding themselves and their path in life. Imposter syndrome or self-sabotage, for example, can manifest in behaviours such as workaholism and burnout, or conversely, procrastination and under-achievement.
Does any of this sound familiar? Then I could be a good fit for you.
I offer the time and safe space for you to reconnect with yourself and to discuss and explore your personal issues, choices, behaviours, thoughts, beliefs and feelings without fear of judgement or discrimination.
In an honest, open and supportive environment it is possible to heal the parts of yourself which can feel damaged or broken and to release negative and unhelpful patterns and ways of being.
“Sometimes in life, we encounter problems that can feel insurmountable and we find ourselves suffering and in emotional pain.
Maintaining the status quo ceases to be an option but we can end up feeling stuck and unsure of where to turn, sometimes to the point of despair, anxiety or depression. We may find ourselves unsure of what action to take or how to do something about it.
As well as being a challenge, problems can also be seen as a call for us to reach inward to find the hidden strengths and untapped qualities that lay buried within.
In this way, a bad situation can be an opportunity to embark on a journey of self-discovery towards healing and growth.
I can help you find your path.”
If you feel like we could be a fit for each other or would like to discuss working together more fully, I can be available for an initial consultation or to answer your questions by email or phone.
