Hi! I'm Matt Healey
I’ve been practicing psychotherapy for 11 years. I’ve worked in many different settings including organisational, private practice and retreat centres.
I was initially drawn to brainspotting because I was frustrated with the ineffectiveness of talk based therapy to heal many forms of trauma.
As a complex trauma survivor myself, I am passionate about learning the best ways to heal. That led me around the world and into many different kinds of therapy. Professionally and personally I have been on a mission to make that journey easier.
My training was first in New Zealand, then Australia. Later followed by a three year apprenticeship at a traditional healing centre in Peru, utilising plant Medicines.
I then moved to France, got married, and had two children.
Discovering Brainspotting really changed my life, it allowed me to heal on a level that I didn’t realise was possible.
The results were tangible, my nervous system relaxed, my looping thoughts subsided, and my body released its pain and rigidity held deep within.
I decided to devote my practice to brainspotting. So I trained and became certified. This year I was accepted into a program to become a Certified Brainspotting consultant.
I use brainspotting because it harnesses the natural ability of your brain and body to heal, correct and harmonise.
Deeply compassionate and client-centered. I have a strong body-centered and emotion-focused background. I incorporate Parts work, creative and expressive modalities, and intergenerational and shamanic principles.
All my work is trauma and attachment informed.
Where appropriate I include strategic goal setting, mindset adjustment, skills-based training for emotional regulation, and emotional intelligence.
I work with clients from all over the world. All sessions are via Zoom.
