I am an experienced and qualified behavioural specialist and performance coach who can help shape your perspective into a healthy and productive one to support you moving forward to achieve your goals, Whether it’s your career, within relationships, family settings, sporting life or other interests.
I feel extremely lucky to have had a vast mixture of experiences such as within management and supervision, youth working, policing, addiction key working, counselling, sports leadership and coaching that has provided me with the skills and knowledge to help support others to make affective changes to achieve their goals, increase performance and change unwanted behaviours which has included helping those with anxiety, low self-esteem, lack of motivation and depression within clinical settings.
Often people are worried about making changes even if these are seen to be positive ones, leaving what we already know, no matter how bad it may seem can be difficult as it is still a familiar setting that we have survived within.
My role is to help you identify the changes that you would like to make and to support you to feel more comfortable to make them, enabling you to move forward to gain new skills and to strengthen the skills that you already have while achieving your goals.

"Matt has a unique and very special way of being able to listen, care and address your problems"
"The way that Matt helped us with a staffing issue was fantastic, managing to resolve the problem quickly and while improving staff relationships"
"I don't know how or why but every time I work with you I win the Tournament"
Matt has had an incredible effect on me over the past couple of weeks at Q-school, whether that be picking the colours out for me in practice (including a beautiful 146 break 😉) or simply just generally keeping me relaxed in between practice and match. If anyone is looking for someone to help on the mental side of the game, Matt is an extremely good guy to have in your corner. I can't thank you enough Matt.
"In under a year with working with Matt I've have seen more consistent performances reaching the later stages of tournaments and winning tournaments along the way achieving more goals and aims.
Matt is always on hand for help and advice. Even just to make sure your doing ok and also to cheer you up after disappointment or set backs he always puts things in a different light to make sure you get back on track"
"A few years back I was in a bad place after my brain tumor was removed so I turned to matt for help and he duly obliged.
I'm delighted to say I'm in a good position now and matt has been somewhat of an inspiration for me"
"I started working with Matt just before the lockdown and from the very first call Matt showed his vast experience and expertise in sports psychology. Its quite clear that each athlete is different and comes with his or her own challenges I am no exception to this and I have plenty on and off the playing field.
Matt very quickly identified my challenges and provided very detailed guidance and a tailored program to help me to address these issues and provided me with a vision (and hope) to reach the next level which I am now striving to achieve.
I would strongly recommend any athlete to speak to Matt"
Believe in yourself. You are braver than you think, more talented than you know, and capable of more than you imagine.
