Perth Psychologist Matt TilleyClinical Psychologist

Registered: Perth, Western Australia
13 Alvan Street, Mt Lawley, Western Australia

Matt is a registered Clinical Psychologist who has worked as a psychotherapist and educator for over 15 years; with experience providing therapy and training to individuals, couples, and groups. He has worked for non-government and government organizations, including the WA AIDS Council, the Department for Community Development, the Department for Child Protection, and also currently lectures in Sexology at Curtin University.

Matt works from an integrative approach, utilising a client centered focus in his work with people. He primarily uses a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) framework, but also draws from a variety of other therapeutic modalities and techniques including Person-centered Therapy, Behavioral Therapy, and Interpersonal Psychotherapy. He provides counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples for a broad range of issues including, depression; anxiety (e.g. OCD; panic attacks; social anxiety); sexuality and sexual concerns; relationship difficulties; abuse histories; grief and loss; personal development; stress management; and effective communication.

Matt believes people have the capacity to achieve whatever they set their mind to, but sometimes they require assistance and a supportive environment to achieve their goals. He views psychotherapy as a catalyst to achieving these goals, whatever they may be. Matt believes he is well equipped to assist people achieve their goals with his combination of training, life philosophy, and work history.

One of the biggest challenges people often report facing is their self-defeating beliefs. Many of us experience these at different times in our lives, and taking steps to speak to someone about them can be daunting. Matt believes that this is all part of life's process and that as humans we need to recognize the importance of the process (our interactions with ourselves and others) as much as that of the content (what we want to talk about or address). Sometimes this is the hardest thing to do, as we will no doubt need to move out of our "comfort zone"; even if it's just in the beginning. Matt believes that his warm and open approach to working with people will assist to minimize the impact of any discomfort experienced (although he can't promise there won't be any!).
