About Matty

Individuals and couples who come to my office or work with me by phone or Skype have numerous concerns and questions about sexual issues. I provide education, openness and enthusiastic encouragement as we together explore the issues that may be getting in the way of you having a healthy and fulfilling sex life.

Do you feel a bit awkward seeking help about sex and intimacy? Most of us are brought up to think it is not polite to talk about intimate things and find it embarrassing and difficult. I am originally from The Netherlands and have lived in Australia for over 25 years. My cultural background has made me a very open minded and approachable person and my clients describe me as "easy to talk to".

Over the years I have worked in a range of professional fields, which has provided me with the ability to communicate and build rapport with individuals from various cultures. Furthermore, from living in different places around the globe, I have acquired a depth of life experiences which complement my counselling skills.

I have been a Lifeline telephone counsellor for eight years and was a telephone counsellor for both Impotence Australia and the Australian Society for Sex Educators, Researchers and Therapists (ASSERT).

The counselling approach I provide is solution focused, caring and sensitive to your individual needs, combined with evidence based strategies such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). This therapy is based around helping you understand, manage and change your thoughts (cognitions) and actions (behaviour).

My experience over the years has shown me that clients are able to solve their sexual health issues once they have the opportunity to share them in the right environment.

I also believe that most people like to find a good solution quickly, so I help clients work towards a solution as the best outcome.

You are welcome to contact me should you have any further enquiries.
