About me

Matthew Davis

I am an HCPC registered professional Music Psychotherapist with 15 years experience working in a variety of different settings, including the NHS, a children’s hospice and adult mental health groups.


I came to Music Therapy through my involvement in inclusive playwork and an interest in psychoanalysis, both of these being very much influenced by the psychoanalyst DW Winnicott. 

As a practicing musician and artist this led me to train as a Music Therapist at Roehampton University.

I see therapy as a relational process and also a creative one, whether it is words that are used or other forms of creativity such as music.

I am interested in working with adults on a 1-1 basis and provide a confidential and peaceful space in central Bristol. I am also able to work peripatetically with children who can be referred by their school and/or parents/carers.


HCPC registered (number: AS08225), I am also a registered supervisor with the BAMT; 

a member of the Counselling Directory -
