I'm a Relationship Counsellor and Sex Therapist. It's my experience that couples experiencing relationship difficulties often need help dealing with sexual issues as they often go hand in hand. Over the last decade I have combined skills in both areas to help couples and individuals move past sex challenges. and restore fun, intimacy and respect in their relationships.

    10 Questions with Matty Silver

    • What led you to choose psychotherapy or counselling as a profession?

    • After being a volunteer Life Line telephone counsellor for many years, I decided to start the ACAP counselling course. My first and second internship was with Impotence Australia - a telephone service in Surry Hills.
      This started my interest in Sex Therapy and I decided to attain the Master of Health Science (Sexual Health) at the University of Sydney.
      This started my career as a Sex Therapist and Relationship Counsellor.
    • Which philosophical approaches have influenced your professional/personal development?

    • Coming from an open-minded society (The Netherlands) which view sex as a normal part of life, I realised that Australians view sex very differently to the way I did and it saddened me that there is such a taboo around sex.

      I started writing articles for the on-line Fairfax papers and later on The Huffington Post. Based on the articles, I have written a book called SEX Down Under - Information, insights and sex education for grown ups. The book deals in short chapters, with many of the issues I encounter in my counselling room, with the aim to help the reader understand that most of these issues are commonly experienced and can be resolved.
    • Which particular aspects of health or the human journey are you interested in?

    • I like to break down and demystify some of the taboos and barriers around sex and encourage people to feel more comfortable talking about it.
    • What method/s do you use?

    • Most important with Sex Therapy is to take a very detailed sexual history, especially with males.
      I find out out what their 'issue' is - when 'things' were good and when they changed.

      When I see a couple, I again find out what the main issue is. I see them separately for a short confidential session - then they come back together again.

      I use the solution focussed method which means giving advice and support.
    • When do you think the client will start to feel that progress is being made?

    • Most of my clients feel progress is made within weeks.
    • What do you like most about being a therapist?

    • The feed back I receive.
    • Do you ever have 'bad hair' days?

    • No, not really.
    • What do you think is the most significant problem we face, in the world today?

    • Climate Change
    • Can you share the name of a book, film, song, event or work of art that inspires you?
