Matthew Henson

Matthew Henson is an existential psychotherapist (IAHIP and UKCP registered), ecopsychologist, group facilitator and psychotherapy trainer. He runs private psychotherapy, ecopsychology and freelance training practices based in Kinsale, working both indoors and outside. His practice draws on close to 30 years experience of voluntary, statutory and private community service development, provision and oversight across social, mental health, drug and criminal justice services in the UK and, more recently, Ireland. Within the context of a long-standing commitment to ethical service provision, his current interests include the development of existential psychotherapy as a challenge to anthropocentrism, the promotion of responses to climate change which are based on established psychotherapeutic wisdom, the reciprocal therapeutic potential of being-with-the-other-than-human and the (re)location of psychotherapy within the other-than-human (natural) world.
