Recover from Parental Narcissistic Abuse: Counselling and Coaching for Adult Children of a Narcissistic parent

Do these statements describe you?  

  • You’re your own harshest critic and yet you struggle to know what’s wrong with you
  • It’s really hard to trust in your own decisions
  • You find it very hard to say no
  • More often than not, you’re driven to perfection and you are always putting others first
  • You feel empty inside and like you’re watching life from the outside

If you answered yes to these questions, you may well have struggled with parental narcissistic abuse: a hyper-critical, controlling or emotionally neglectful parent or a parent with a narcissistic personality. If so, you’re in the right place.

Let’s find a way together to help you move out of the struggle, stuckness or overwhelm. Call or text me on 07443 640556 to arrange a free initial chat or email me; whatever feels right for you.

Live the life you want

Life is precious. Yet when your head’s in a spin from a painful situation, nothing seems to make sense. Every day is a battle…

My name’s Matt. Matt Fox Childhood Narcissistic Abuse Recovery ExpertI’m a parental narcissistic abuse recovery expert. One of the very few in the UK. It’s my honour and privilege to help adults who’ve suffered, often silently, in childhood trying to make sense of an unstable and emotionally unpredictable world.

I help them rediscover their self-confidence and have healthier and more fulfilling relationships.

With my counselling and coaching support, you can have a calmer, happier future full of hope. Ready to try?

It’s not your fault

I’m here to tell you, though it might be hard to accept right now, this is not your fault. And that you can feel great about yourself and better about your relationship with your parents too.

With my help, you can make sense of your childhood emotional neglect or parental narcissistic abuse and start to treat yourself with kindness. Greater self-confidence, clearer boundaries and renewed self-esteem.

Be kind to you … Take the first step

Whatever the fear, the problem, the nightmare you’re lost in, there IS a way forward. And I’ll walk alongside you every step of the way.

Childhood narcissistic abuse is a form of trauma. You may not relate how you’re currently feeling to this childhood experience but it can have a profound impact on your adult life:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Suicidal thinking
  • Difficulties with intimacy
  • Co-dependency
  • Counter-dependency (where you are over self-reliant)
  • Addictions of all forms
  • Trust issues
  • Body issues (somatic pains and illnesses)
  • Work stress
  • Isolation and loneliness

As a BACP accredited counsellor, therapist and coach, I have the skills and experience to help you come through your pain and suffering and experience life feeling more connected, more joyful and more at peace.

You need to be confident that the person you’re working with gets what it’s like to have experienced parental narcissistic abuse. You want to be sure they’re equipped to guide you gently and kindly towards a new way of being.

My passion as a therapist is to help those who’ve suffered at the hands of a narcissistic or controlling parent get over their past hurts to live the life and relationships they truly long for.


Your relationship with your parent is important to you (even if it’s painful)

Counter to what most experts say, I don’t believe that complete rupture with your family is always the only solution. For many of my clients that’s a place of last resort.

Together we can work out how you want your family relationships to be, and to work safely and a step at a time to see what might be possible.

Whatever you choose to do, remember there’s nothing wrong with feeling this way. When you’re ready to step beyond the hurt to a better place, I’ll be here for you.

To make an appointment for a free non-obligation chat, please call/text 07443 640556, or you’re welcome to email me.
