Matthew Stainer Specialist Addictions Counsellor (Bsc Hons) FdapIntegrative therapist
I am a qualified and accredited addictions therapist with over 4 years’ experience of working alongside adults with substance use disorders and behavioural addictions. I offer a safe and confidential space in which to work through your presenting issues, whilst offering a supportive relationship alongside you to meet your goals of therapy. Having recently completed a Bachelor of Science degree, I pride myself on having up to date knowledge of the drug and alcohol field and am able to integrate various therapies, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Relapse prevention, to ensure that your treatment is tailored to your specific needs.
My therapy style is flexible, with an emphasis on the relational elements which are evidenced to improve therapeutic outcomes. I tend to focus not only on the causation of the presenting problems but work towards finding appropriate solutions to both short- and long-term issues.
Addictive disorders present human beings with a myriad of problems. Having had experience of addiction myself, I can assure you that the space I offer is empathic and without judgment. My own personal experience coupled with my qualifications is utilised to offer a sense of relief from an otherwise lonely place.
I currently offer face to face therapy in Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and also offer online counselling, via Skype.
