My coaching approach is informed by my training at the Institute of Psychosynthesis model, drawing on John Whitmore’s coaching goal-based approach, and on the Integral Psychosynthesis approach, focusing not only cognitive and behavioural drives, but also on somatics and systemic forces within organisations and how they may be influencing the coachee.
I began my career in Finance as a qualified ACA accountant. My coaching practice and workshop facilitation is informed by the valuable insight I gained while working in senior financial roles in corporate and not-for-profit organisations. Over the last five years, I have become the co-founder and director of a consultancy specialising in applying business psychology solutions to organisations and as part of this, I have set up my own coaching practice.
Testimonials – Professional and Personal Coaching
'I am so happy I decided to have coaching with Matt. I can say it is one of the best self-development decisions I have made. I understood myself so much better and feel a different person. Thank you Matt. I highly recommend his coaching programme.'
'I had been struggling with a work dilemma for some time before I made my first appointment to see Matt. His facilitation allowed me to really think the problem through, identify the real source of my uncertainty and enable me to move forward with confidence. His insight and support made it possible for me to gain a clarity that I had been lacking and come up with a plan that I knew could work.'
Senior Manager, FTSE 100 Retail Company
'Mat is a committed coach who provides a focused and professional container to enable and to work with goals and direction. He is an effective communicator, offers distinctive perspectives and uses skills to help gain insight and self-knowledge. I highly recommend him'.
"Matthew's coaching approach is rather unique bridging life and career coaching by helping one realise one's own purpose and desired direction in life. Matthew helped me rediscover my natural strengths, desires and overall passion. Matthew understands the the challenges of today's corporate world; in his approach he will encourage you to rethink your overall values and how these can find a place in our manic daily schedules, as well as what it is that we may want to change going forward".
Senior Manager, FTSE 100 Bank
"I sought coaching after a few years of very serious and life threatening illnesses. A friend recommended Matt and, although I was sceptical at first, I began to look forward to our sessions. Matt’s style is gentle, reassuring and I very quickly felt I could trust him and talk to him openly. Matt has given me the “tools” to look forward to life and the possibilities that I have ahead, without the need to constantly look back at the “what if’s”. I feel I understand myself better now and am able to manage my anxious times. Matt has been there for me and supported me through some tough times with love and wisdom and I will be forever grateful for all his help and understanding."
