I have extensive training and many years of experience working on a one-to-one basis with people seeking help for problems such as low self-esteem, relationship issues, grief, and all types of painfulfeelings. As well as working as a therapist, I am a committee member of the Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists in North London (ACPNL).
Counselling is a very personal experience and is different for everyone, but as a general rule, I believe counselling works because it gives you the unique opportunity to express yourself openly abouthow you feel. This is particularly important when it is about feelings which usually cause you to fear being judged or rejected. However, we can be led to believe that some things are wrong to feel. This means we often tend to keep many of our emotions closed, even from friends and family.
Beginning the therapeutic journey is a difficult step for many people, but is also the beginning of a better life for most. I hope that this web site will help you understand how psychotherapy canbenefit you, the counselling process, and enough about my approach that you will want to make contact and start your own journey. Most come to psychotherapy because something is troubling them.
Once you have decided you would like to go ahead with counselling, we will arrange a mutually convenient time for our initial meeting. Looking for a counsellor or Counselling in London? TranquilityConselling Service is based in Chingford and is in easy reach of London and West Essex.

The journey started in January 2006 in 10 Harley Street when Matt Broadway-Horner was working full time at the Priory hospital in north London. This has been a dream come true for Matt to work usingCBT to help people deal with their problems before it becomes chronic and they are forced to take time off work due to illness. Matt believes that many conditions can be treated if only the stigma attached to mental health problems were reduced and psychological help was accessed earlier.
