My sessions with Dr. Matthew Sawa were integral in helping me understand what was going on and how I can feel better. And I wish I have taken this step sooner. Dr. M. Sawa really listened to me explaining and remembering what was going on and really considered it in details. My sessions helped me understand a more complex nature of what I was going through – and helped me consider different ways of how I could feel better now and on the long term. I wasn’t that keen on medication and Dr. M. Sawa was attentive to this and worked with me to find other ways of how I can recover. He also opened me up to considering how I can deal with more urgent situations and explained where I could receive support. This really worked for me and I am very grateful for his help, his recommendations and attentiveness. These sessions were extremely important for my recovery.
Dr M Sawa is the first professional who has acknowledged my systems. I have on many occasions went to different practices and they always assumed I was fine because I had a good job and eventually got a good education. Dr Sawa seen past the job and education and seem the struggles, signs and symptoms I have being living with. Within an hour, of our consultation, I felt heard and got knowledge on how best to go forward. Dr Shaw will remain on the top of my list for support, help and advice from now on. I would recommend anyone struggling to see him. He is fantastic at what he does. Most importantly, will give answers or alternatives.
I am very satisfied by my initial meeting with Dr. Matthew Sawa. In particular, what I am grateful for is his sympathetic and understanding demeanor to my issues and situation. Unlike my previous experiences with other Psychiatrists, he gave a wholistic approach giving a variety of suggestions and possible treatments to cover the breadth of my different, but related issues. I can see he is trying to get to the root cause as opposed to treating superficial symptoms. He was reassuring about life experiences I had that upset me. He respected my religious beliefs and was very professional. I am happy to recommend him to a friend or family. The Private Therapy Clinic has made an excellent recommendation for me in seeing him.
Great service, polite staff and professional advice. I am particularly grateful for the extensive and friendly insight of Dr Sawa.

After searches on the internet I came across ‘The private therapy clinic’ and decided to book an appointment online. I can say that finding the door might prove a bit difficult but after I got inside and calmed down my anxiety I could see how cosy the place is. The admin staff is very communicative and open, they will help you schedule appointment and payments (even if you can do it online yourself) and are very responsive. At the clinic everyone is making you feel welcomed, relaxed and open to discuss your issues. My Psychiatrist, Dr. Matthew Sawa, couldn’t be a better fit for myself and I’d like to thank him here again for all the help.
