"Matt quickly helps his clients understand the underlying dynamics that get in the way of progress and it always feels like he’s 100% on your side. He's an ally and coach who’s there to help in a gentle but firm way...not complicate or confuse. At the end of every session it always feels like proper progress - something feels unlocked, solved, better.
In particular I’ve found his ability to help me differentiate between facts and my personal feelings/response to the facts very powerful and useful. This has helped me make much better decisions and manage stress far better."
Martin Brooks, Co-Founder, The Shackleton Company.
"Matthew’s Coaching has had a big impact on my business growth and development since we started working together last year. He has provided a sounding board for ideas and helped me to get past the self imposed barriers preventing me from growing my business. He's a great coach."
Chris, Director, Croft Building Services.

Martin Palethorpe, Founder of The Pragma Group.
."From the very first session Matthew zoned in on the area of my life that is most important to attend to right now, and some of the key changes in thinking I will need to apply in order to move forward confidently and successfully.
Matthew’s approach is relaxed, focussed and highly effective. I am excited about what the future will bring."
Jill, Professional Musician.

Matthew quickly and accurately identified the essence of my situation and my underlying vision for my life, and then skilfully and empathically guided me back on track."

Chukumeka Maxwell, CEO, Action To Prevent Suicide.
"Matt helped me out with clear headed advice while trying to find a new job. We covered a lot of angles relating to my situation and mindset during our discussions, which lead to some very useful insights. I came away from the coaching sessions knowing more about what I want from work, and with a deeper understanding of how I approach it."
Tom, Marketing Executive.
"Matt's challenging of long-nurtured and ossifying attitudes in my life has been vital to the future of my business. Since our sessions began there has been a shift, for the good, in the re-balancing of my attitude and approach to my working life. In other words, more joy in the day to day. Unexpectedly, my Coaching with Matt has also opened new avenues of self-enquiry - giving me courage to welcome the next phase of my life.”
