“Matt makes you feel at ease and is extremely empathetic.  He is more than just a life coach and coupled with his career in mental health, he knew how to let me open up to and feel understood without being judged.  He really listened and enabled me to gain a better understanding of why I am the way I am.  Matt helped me to accept past events and he empowered me to make changes in my life which have positively impacted me, my family and my career.

Each session was well structured and focused. Matt provided resources and a detailed assessment after each session which helped me to structure my plans and move forward.

Matt’s approach let me reach within and find answers. I now have personal goals, tools and resources to move forward to make the changes I want to make - happiness comes from within!”


To learn more about how my clients and I achieve balance and success in our lives using life coaching and therapy, please head to my website. Here I also share the story of my journey into Life Coaching, and how I use my Mental Health Nursing experience, tools and techniques to support others.

Depending on the challenge you are experiencing and the changes you want to make, I will work with you either on a session by session basis, or as part of a 3-month programme. Working with me begins with a phone call, an opportunity to explore how you would like coaching to have an impact on your life. We’ll discuss the changes you want to make and the goals you want to achieve. You will gain a greater understanding of the role of coaching, and be in the best position to make a decision about using coaching as the solution to achieve the life you desire and deserve. I will support you in identifying the coaching programme that best suits your needs.

Training, qualifications & experience


I became a life coach following a career of over 20 years as a Mental Health Nurse working initially on an acute psychiatric ward and then predominantly in the community.

My first experience of Life Coaching was as a coaching client following a period of uncertainty and questioning my career path. I was becoming increasingly aware of how my own mental health had become compromised and was affecting my close relationships, yet I was struggling to let go of my identity as a Nurse. I was able to experience first-hand the tools and techniques of coaching, and how they enabled me to change my thinking and make positive steps towards a new life. I worked through my core values and identified how I could use my knowledge and experience in a different role yet maintain a sense of purpose in my career, that of supporting others through their difficult challenges. As a result, I became a Life Coach to support individuals to achieve balance and success in all areas of their life.
