catalog showing too many photos

hi all.
I recently moved my library to a new Mac recently and it got pretty messy, pretty quick.
I have about 10k photos on my hard drive, synced to CC.
But now 'All photographs' and my hard drive is showing 30k.
I know for a fact there are only 10k images on there so how can I get this back in sync.
I deleted 40k photos from my Lightroom CC which was rising as my new computer was syncing.
I've always hated the way Lightroom / CC sync works and im quite frustrated.
Could someone please help me get this working again?
Huge thanks!
