About Me

Matthew Cleere BSC(Hons), MBPsS, MBACP, MNCPS, Dip Theraputic Counselling


I am an experienced, qualified therapeutic counsellor, full member of the British Psychological Society and a registered member of the BACP. I counsel clients for any issues they have.


I work as a humanistic counsellor , using an Existentially informed Person Centred approach to counselling.

As a Person Centred counsellor I believe that you are the only person who knows yourself and your situation. This makes my approach client lead, with you choosing what you wish to explore and I help to facilitate you on your life's journey.

 Together we can find the answers and solutions to you seek.

Since leaving school I have worked in many different fields that lead me to training as a counsellor and psychologist. I now work in the field of therapeutic counselling.


I have spent over seven years in the family court arena. This has meant dealing with the courts, social services , CAFFCAS as well as dealing with vunerable children and their needs their needs and issues.

All this has lead me to acquire a wealth of life experience that helps me to empathise with clients and facilitate them in travelling their life's journey.

I have also worked as a school counselor in a secondary school in Essex and am currently working in London schools offering counselling and therapy to young people aged 4 to 18.This has given me a great deal of experience working with young people of all ages.

I have completed training in bereavement counselling, for both adults and young people as well as a diploma in therapeutic counselling with the CPCAB.
