More About Me
With a background of management, youth working, policing, addiction key working and sports leadership and coaching I have a vast collection of skills and knowledge to help support you to make affective changes to achieve your goals.
I have over 20 years experience of supporting people within the corporate setting, amateur and professional sport, The family home and social environment.
This 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.
Improve confidence and gain that winning edge
No matter what level you are at within sport be it at amature or professional I can help support you to increase in confidence, reduce nerves and anxiety , and to set clear targets to help you to achieve your goals providing you that winning edge that can make all the difference over your opponents . With a great track record I have helped some of the top professional sports people win the biggest of tournaments and also supported many others to win their first.
Relationship, advocacy and mediation sessions
Gain healthier working relationships
Be it working, friendships, partners or family, relationships come in all different shapes and forms and are often very important to us and our happiness.
Maintaining healthy and happy relationships isn’t always easy and can take hard work. Sometimes we can get stuck either worried that we are going to lose these important relationships , that they are no longer going to be productive or that they could become damaging.
As a trained mediator, family worker and group worker I can help you gain the most from your relationship be it in the work place, home or socially.

"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"
Believe in yourself. You are braver than you think, more talented than you know, and capable of more than you imagine.
