CBT therapy specialising in anxiety disorders


I am very proud of my testimonials and I hope that they will offer you some confidence and reassurance. All of my testimonials are authentic and I always welcome people to attend my anxiety support groups held in Bury, Lancs where I am sure my testimonials and credentials will always be supported by my colleagues and my well-attended groups.

Matt has done a lot of research on the subject of all kinds of anxiety, and also experienced this himself. I first met Matt at an anxiety support group called BIG in Mental Health which Matt hosted. He made everybody feel very welcome and at ease, it was so nice to go to the group for the reassurance that I wasn't going mad. This is one of the classic symtoms of anxiety amongst many others ..........the pins and needles in your arms, your heart beating out of your chest... everyone in the group had some form of these symptoms. Matt explained all of them and why they happen very clearly. Having suffered himself for many years and through his own research and recovery Matt genuinely wanted to give something back to people who suffered with anxiety. The ability to lead a normal life again with the aid of various techniques and the knowledge Matt has given me, I would have no hesitation in contacting him for his professional help if needed again. This is a fantastic person who is easy to talk to ,understands you and knows what it is like to live trapped in an anxiety ridden life. Good luck Matt I wish you every success .x

I suffer from anxiety and have done most of my life especially due to PTSD. I suffer intense fast heart beats and wake up during the night with panic attacks because of my nightmares. I first came across Matt in Bury going back many years ago where he ran groups for people suffering from anxiety. I found his sessions very useful and informative but most of all I was surrounded by people who knew what it felt like to have anxiety and especially Matt who himself has struggled with it. I attend BIG in Mental Health groups where Matt gives an insight into anxiety and I cant stress enough the amount of help I get from it. Matt is a great facilitator and a great guy who can explain in simple terms how to manage anxiety. He has now gone on leaps and bounds to do more research and progress in his career. Good luck Matt and thanks for your ongoing support.

"My husband developed anxiety about 9 months ago and was really not in a good place.  Through a friend of ours who recommended Matthew Coleclough, my husband decided to have a couple of sessions with Matthew.  He was so good and explained things in a really straightforward way so that the lay person could understand what was happening.  He also brought along a model of a brain to demonstrate what happens when you are suffering which really was so helpful.  (I think also due to the fact that Matthew has himself suffered in the past helps as well).


I would not hesitate in the first place to recommend Matthew if you are suffering from stress and anxiety or indeed any other problems"

I have been to see many doctors, therapists and one psychiatrist in my life and have been on countless medication for my long standing anxiety and depressive problems with little progress. Matthew had given me more hope and confidence for a brighter future in one session than all of them put together! I know I still have a long way to go and many more memories of suffering to dampen but I feel confident and able that I will get there. I only wish I had seen Matthew many years ago. I would highly recommend him. Thanks again Matthew!

My problems began in November (2015) after the death of my mother and I began to get panic attacks. i had never experienced them previously but had always been somewhat of a nervous child (I'm 34 now). I initially went to doctors who prescribed my Citalopram and was put on a waiting list to see a CBT therapist but I felt I needed help quickly. After researching the Internet I discovered Matthew through Right Therapy and decided to pay for private therapy. Matthew runs his practice from home and it is a very nice relaxing room where he does it from. He explained why I had developed anxiety and even showed me a real life size model of a brain and described exactly where the problems were happeningv. I felt more at ease once I knew exactly what was happening and Matthew explained everything very clearly. He is extremely knowledgeable!


After two sessions I felt confident I knew everything and able to cope with future episodes. I feel having been through this that I am a much stronger individual now and certainly look at life with different eyes. Matthew you have been a real gem! Thank you x
