My name is Matt Hancocks and I have been a practising counsellor and psychotherapist based in Cumbria
You have arrived here, I suspect, because you feel that you have somehow lost your way in life. This can be for many complex and different reasons, but you don't have to be on your own with it. Could you benefit from a place to take some time-out?
... to explore your thoughts and feelings?
... to get back on a front foot again?
....space to reflect on your life?
....time and support to come to terms with things in your life that have and still affect you, the quality of your life and your relationships?
It is always difficult to make that first stand engage with a stranger on something so personal refer people on where your needs can be better met elsewhere.
I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
It is always difficult to make that first step to engage with a stranger on something so personal, so for this reason I offer an exploratory session to get to know each other, as it is important that we should both feel we can work together.
I specialise in issues around sexuality and trauma, as well as the psychology of men. I do however see women as well.
I am experienced in helping clients who have difficulties with :
Anxiety and depression
LGBT+ related issues
Please feel free to make contact.

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
