Dr Oliver Twizell

As the founder of Mental Fitness Matters, I am a high-performance counselling psychologist trained in all the major therapy approaches. This enables me to work as an integrative practitioner so I can tailor therapy around you, the client.


I am also a published, peer-reviewed author with a specific focus on therapy in sport and exercise environments. My work also addresses racism in football and how to best utilise mental health and wellbeing services within elite sporting environments.  


As well as a Counselling Psychologist, I am also a Sport Performance Psychologist and business professional. As well as Mental Fitness Matters, I also work for the NHS. I gained my professional doctorate from The University of Manchester Counselling Psychology Programme. 

I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Psychological Society (BPS).
