Dr Matthew Rinaldi
MBBS BSc MRCPsych UKCP ACOMP
Matthew’s practice is influenced by his various trainings: he is both a medical psychotherapist and psychiatrist, working in the NHS and private practice. He is an accredited doctor, member of the General Medical Council and Royal College of Psychiatrists, UK Council for Psychotherapy and College of Medical Psychotherapists. Over the years, Matthew trained at the reputable London training programmes of the Maudsley, Bethlem and St George’s Hospitals. He is completing extra training with the Society of Analytical Psychology to offer a range of psychological treatments.
Matthew’s specialty is long-term, depth psychotherapy, where he looks to broaden your conscious awareness, thus increasing your potential and resilience. He is also trained in Cognitive Behavioural, Systemic, Family, Group, Psychodynamic Interpersonal and Brief therapies. Less than 1% registered psychiatrists have this dual-training in psychiatry and psychotherapy. With it, Matthew holds in mind the biological, psychological, spiritual and social factors that may be contributing to your problems at this time. His work brings him into contact with a diverse mix of people from various cultures and orientations and he works with the spectrum of mental health problems: from people who struggle to leave their house to people who are thinking about how to maintain high-pressure executive jobs. Matthew also regularly talks to people with thoughts about suicide that they want to work through.
Matthew fundamentally believes that the relationship between client and healthcare provider is one of the most important factors in bringing about change. It is important that you find someone that you can relate to, feel safe with and have confidence in. Matthew can talk further about what he does to create a safe space for his clients and you can experience this when you meet. He offers an initial 2 x 50-minute assessment sessions to see if you’d like to work together and to think about what may be helpful for you at this point in your life. This is £300. If you decide you would like to start a course of psychotherapy with Matthew or someone else in The Practice, we will look to start that immediately after.
Matthew charges on a sliding scale between £100-150 for psychotherapy sessions and offers both face-to-face and virtual therapy. His low-fee availability is currently full.
