Description

Welcome,

My name is Matthew. Let's say you are asked “Imagine a place where you feel calm.” You might answer with being near water, on a beach, or perhaps walking through a grassy field or forest. These places can surface feelings of serenity, being connected, and safety.

Beach Grove Counselling strives to be this safe place. A place where you can feel connected with another human, a place where you are at the centre, a place of calm.

You can get started easily; we offer a 20-minute free initial session to see how working together might help you.

Please feel welcome to message me.

Facility Information

Beach Grove Counselling

Summary

Being a little older I've seen a lot. This includes over 25 years as a coach, working with entrepreneurs, professionals, and everyday people. This experience is invaluable in my clinical counselling and psychotherapy work. 

We work within a Trauma-Informed Care framework. Trauma-informed care means practicing sensitive ways of working with people who may be impacted by trauma, whether or not you choose to disclose it. Trauma-informed care has an emphasis on your safety, choice, and control.

We are an online counselling service. The address provided is for mail and deliveries only.
