“The power of the therapy is the therapeutic relationship”


Welcome to Therapy by Rose

CBT therapy and counselling

I'm here to help...

I strongly believe that everyone has the ability to overcome their issues if they are ready, and have the right support at the right time.

Are you experiencing difficulties with relationships, sexuality, depression, anxiety, stress, OCD, anger, low self-esteem, and work-related problems? Come, together we will create a safe and supportive environment where you and I won’t feel judged.

Collaboratively, we will explore your difficulties in order to help you find the roots that cause the problem. I use Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) to explore the origin of unhealthy thoughts in order to help you to develop a new way of thinking.
Also, I use an integrative approach to counselling including Person-centred (PCT) and Psychodynamic to assist individuals in overcoming their issues.

I support one-to-one adults and older adolescents in person, online and on phone and offer therapy in English and French.

I offer short-term therapy: typically 6 or 12 sessions and open-ended/long-term (depth work) interventions.

You can contact me for a free assessment.

Our Happy Clients

I feel so grateful to have known Ms Matadi she enables me to feel safe enough to discuss any worry I have and open myself to someone else without worry of judgment or negativity. I can seek advice and support from someone who shows interest in my wellbeing, sympathy and acknowledgement that my thoughts are valid and sane.

It helped me focus and resolve my problems. At the end of my 6 sessions I felt so much more in control of my worries. I have gained weight and most important I am sleeping through the night. As Rose said” We are here to give you the tools to help yourself”. Now I feel I definitely have the tools, thanks.

My experience was very helpful, Rose has been very supportive and listened to me at all times. I think Rose is a great therapist and if in the future I needed counselling again, I would 100% like to see her.
