Hi I’m Matt
It’s great to meet you.
2020’s been a crazy year with lots of uncertainty.
So if you’re reading this, it’s my guess you’ve hit a challenge.
You need some help.
Now more than ever, you want to be on top of your game and feeling your best.
But perhaps it feels more like . . .
your confidence has done a runner and your self-belief’s facedown in the mud.
I’ve struggled with professional confidence myself.
I know what it’s like.
The great news is, you’re in the right place.
As a qualified coach I’ll help you develop your professional confidence by tapping into all the hidden skills you have but perhaps can’t see.
Then get them working for you.
Maybe what you’re after is . . .
Confidence to speak up in meetings or go for that promotion
Self-belief to nail the interview and land the job
Great communication to breeze through presentations like you’re giving a TED talk
Passion and purpose in what you do and joy in your work
Motivation to get your arse in gear and get unstuck!
Knowing your worth and charging more for what you do
To value your experience for a mind-blowing resume
Clarity on what you want, so you can go for your dreams
The world needs your knowledge, humour, talent, personality, leadership, creativity, ideas, passion . . . all the great things that make you, YOU.
So if not now, when?
It’s time to draw a line in the sand, face your obstacle, embrace the fear and take the first step.
I’ll stand shoulder to shoulder and help you get there.
So what’s my story?
My early career started in fashion retail. In visual communication and merchandising.
I've since worked with fashion and lifestyle retail brands, on marketing events, international trade fairs, photo shoots, fashion shows, magazine editorial and even in television.
I’ve managed projects, trained teams and designed.
Creativity’s at the heart of what I do.
Most of my career I’ve worked as an independent.
So I understand the challenges of being self-employed.
My coaching began a few years ago when living in Paris.
When I moved there, I quickly discovered there were very few people with my particular experience and a British accent.
I saw a need I could help with.
So I began to work with clients to develop their professional communication skills where English wasn’t their first language.
I helped amazing people in all sorts of fields to achieve great things.
I since returned to London and qualified as a Transformational coach with ICF accredited school, Animas.
Today, I combine all my experience under one unique umbrella.
I help clients improve communication skills in public speaking and language.
I run an online men’s group where guys can open up about stuff going on in their life with other guys who want growth and personal development.
I consult on creative projects with retail brands and interior design.
I write blog articles to inspire people like you to grow confidence and
take action in their professional life.
These allow me to work with a creative mindset that helps me, help you.
Stretching your thinking outside the box.
Getting you to access all the great stuff inside you and find a way to express that to the world.
I have a sense of humour - the work I do is serious but that doesn’t mean there can’t be some fun too.
If it sounds like I can help you with your challenge, then get in touch.
There’s no pressure and I won’t try to market to you.
I can share my website with you that tells you a bit more and has some free resources you might find useful.
(I’m not allowed to share the URL on this site)
Get in touch and let’s have a chat.
Remember the first session on Superprof is free so what’s to lose?
So what does working together look like?
Once you get in touch, we’ll arrange a chat on Skype.
(I don’t charge you, it’s the ‘1st session free’)
We’ll use this time to explore your challenge and what you want to achieve.
Once I understand this, I explain how I can help, and answer any questions.
Coaching will be unique to you and we’ll plan it that way.
Generally how it works is . . .
We meet once a week on Skype
At the start of each session, we set the objectives for that session.
This is in line with the overall objective you’re working on.
We do an hours coaching.
By the end of the session you go away with specific things you’ll achieve before our next session.
The number of sessions isn’t fixed.
I’ve worked with clients anything from 6 weeks to 6 months, depending how big a transformation they want to make.
You have my total confidentiality, trust and commitment.
It’s an investment from me.
I ask for your commitment and motivation in return.
If we work together, I invoice you for an agreed block of sessions in advance along with our contract to sign and return.
So get in touch and let’s achieve big things!
I found the confidence to go for a promotion and I got it!
You made me feel stronger and believe in myself.
Our focus on my confidence at work has really helped me. I’m assertive and dive in a lot more. People have noticed I’m so much more organised, calmer and relaxed. I feel on top of it and I’m pushing myself because you’ve made me see that I CAN do it.
I now come up with more ideas and look ahead rather than put things off.
It’s important for everyone to have a goal they can reach. To set yourself a challenge like I did, then go for it and achieve it.
It’s been good to explore. To get a better, stronger understanding of myself.
You listened and came up with questions to deepen my thinking.
I was a bit worried what you might think of me at first Matt, but you’re very easy to talk to and understanding.
You were really good with me, it was relaxed and I could open up quite a lot to you without feeling anxious. It was a comfortable environment where I could be very open and honest.
You’re very reliable and you were there for me as support.
It just comes naturally to you.
A big thank you :)

Working with Matt’s like unblocking a terrible traffic jam. However good your friends are, they don’t sit and ask you the right questions to get the best out of you. I now see that I’m good at loads of things and I’m the only person who can get that out there and show it to the world.
I had a block around my own value and worth. Particularly being able to charge for things, valuing my knowledge and skills.
I’ve been able to clarify what I offer and who are the people I intend to help. This is what my service is worth and to showcase that worth.
I’ve set myself into a position where I can earn more from what I do.
It feels really good and I feel more empowered.
You’re very calm and grounded, very clear. You’re able to read quite easily between the lines, what’s being said and you see the recurring patterns with relative ease. I’m following your example in my work.
J’ai contacté Matt parce que j’avais besoin de parler l’anglais au travail, mais aussi parce que je voulais améliorer mon anglais dans la vie courante.
Sur le plan professionnel, il fallait que je présente et vendre en anglais des objets d’art dans un salon international. Bien qu’il n’y ait pas suffisamment de temps pour la préparation, Matt a tout fait afin que je puisse accomplir ma mission. Il m’a enseigné comment accueillir les clients et comment décrire des objets de manière à la fois simple et efficace. Il m’a également entraîné en faisant des jeux de rôles. Enfin il m’a fait une liste de vocabulaire qui m’a très bien servi. Toutes les séances étaient vraiment passionnantes. Grâce aux cours de Matt, je suis arrivée à communiquer avec les clients anglophones avec aisance. Cette expérience m’a permis d’avoir confiance en mes compétences en anglais.
Avec lui, apprendre l’anglais n’est plus fastidieux, au contraire, c’est un réel plaisir et je peux me rendre compte de mes progrès. Nos séances de coaching sont passionnantes et productives. Je me sens plus en confiance et plus motivée. Cette motivation intense et continue est le fruit le plus grand que m’ont donné les cours de mon coach.
Ce que j’aime le plus, c’est d’avoir des conversations avec lui. J’apprends la prononciation, la grammaire, le lexique et même la culture anglaise. Matt est doué pour simplifier des sujets compliqués.
C’est d’autant plus amusant qu’il a le sens d’humour et qu’il propose des sujets variés. Je me sens plus à l’aise à l’oral par rapport au début.
J’apprécie beaucoup sa personnalité en tant que coach. Il est sérieux, attentionné, à l’écoute, patient et ponctuel. Il sait motiver ses élèves et les soutenir. C’est un homme de confiance.
Je vais continuer à apprendre l’anglais avec Matt et aussi vivement le recommander aux autres.
