"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.

I’ve shifted from a place of only seeing ‘roadblocks’ to having a big vision that excites and stimulates me.
Matthew has a subtle approach that makes the ‘push’ for change come from inside you."

"Working with Matt was a real pleasure and provided a platform for me to explore the ways in which I work best. Through my work with Matt I achieved all the goals I set out for myself and laid the groundwork for procedures that have helped me get more done, more happily and without burning out. I would recommend Matt to anyone who is looking for a mental, emotional or spiritual guide to help them see that they have everything they need to get to where they want to be."
Brodsky, DJ and Producer.
"As an independent artist juggling many projects at once, it is very easy to get lost in your own echo chamber and to face overwhelm or burnout doing it all alone. Working with Matthew gave me the clarity and support I needed to take my second album to fruition, to organise my tour and to learn important work boundaries when self-managing, that have been valuable and evolving ever since.
Matthew is a top-class musician and his experience as a promoter was invaluable to me in understanding how to run a much smoother and effective ship both live and in promotion. He is able to see your unique gifts and shape them in a way that is going to work for you as a person, not just as a commodity or service.
Matthew’s calm, assured nature, neutral standpoint and excellence at finding solutions is exactly what any serious musician needs to take their career to the next level and start working from a stronger successful core in their music"
Jo-Beth Young, Acclaimed Recording Artist.
"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.
"I started having coaching with Matthew during a difficult period in my life.
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."
Robin, IT Consultant.
"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.”
