The Obligatory Third Person Bio

After spending 20 years as a multi award-wining writer and creative director at Wieden + Kennedy, M&C Saatchi, Naked, and Clemenger BBDO, Matt traded a steady income and a fully-stocked beer fridge for life as a commercial and documentary director at 2am TV in Camden, and Another Film Company in Soho.

During this time he directed ads, virals, and branded content for MG sports cars, Nike, Gymbox, The Wales Tourist Board, Relentless Energy Drink, and Runners Need, as well as writing 3 feature-length screenplays, a couple of sitcoms, and an extreme sports documentary starring British and Canadian Paralympic Gold Medalists, Ade Adepitan and Stacy Kohut.

It was during this growth spurt that he realised that stupidly early call times, threadbare production budgets, and ridiculously cold film studios weren't his idea of paradise. So he decided to find out what was, and retrained as an NLP Master Practitioner and Master Coach through the International NLP Trainers Association, before signing up to several back-to-back professional and advanced diplomas in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy at King’s College London.

After graduating with first class honours and a mountain of credit card debt, Matt ventured even further into the red by training to advanced levels in Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Cognitive Behavioural 

Therapy (CBT), Matrix Reimprinting, Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR), and numerous other high performance psychologies and transformational therapies in London and Sydney.

After an intensive 4 year stint as a Complex Trauma Specialist in Harley Street, Matt began coaching some of the best-known and highly-respected creative leaders and C-level board members in the world.

Today, as well as being an in-demand coach, he's an international trainer, workshop facilitator, and keynote speaker for top-flight creative businesses and global super-brands like FOX, Bentley, Toyota, Lexus, and Westfield, where he specialises in injecting breakthrough thinking, and sustainable high performance, into their heads, hearts, and hands. 

When Matt's not pressure proofing brains, debullshitifying minds, and talking in the third person, he can be found squirrelled away in one of his favourite Mallorcan hotels where he's either completing the manuscript for his first book (due out soon), or swotting up on the latest and greatest research in neuroscience and neuropsychology. 

Much to the disappointment of his¬†former band mates, who preferred him when he¬†was¬†a Les Paul¬†swinging, punk rock lead guitarist.¬†ūü§ė

Proudly Overqualified

Coaching can have a profoundly positive effect on your life. But in the wrong hands is can really mess stuff up.

Unfortunately, because the coaching industry is completely and utterly unregulated, anyone can call themselves a coach or therapist these days, even if they've got nothing in the way of credible qualifications or hands-on experience.

So buyer beware. Because there's a hell of a lot of sharks, snakes and baby turtles out there ripping people off and messing with their minds.

But if you want to work with someone who's been reigniting the heads, hearts and guts of his clients for well over 15 years AND has dedicated the past two decades training to masters level in almost every coaching and psychological modality under the sun, you're in the right place.

And you can see the evidence below...

The Proof Is In The Paperwork 

As an adman I won Gold Lions at Cannes and Yellow Pencils at D&AD. But NOTHING makes me prouder than the paper certificates which transformed me into a sustainable high performance coach with a bunch of letters after my name: BA (Hons), DCH, DHP (1st), MNLP, ADv.EFT, MRP. UKCP psychotherapist & GHR registered.

CEO of Talkclub, Writer, Director & Campaigner

"I blame Matt. For what? Well everything. I blame Matt for the fact that I’m a Director. I blame Matt for the fact that I created the film “Steve” and have been able to save other men from suicide. I blame Matt for the fact that I didn’t just talk about it, that I did it. Matt has been my big brother, my coach, my sounding board, my conscious. I wouldn’t have been able to turn my grief from losing Steve, into being a male mental health campaigner without Matt. As I said I blame Matt. He's brilliant. So thank you Matt for being in my life and career." 

SNOWFLAKES BEWARE: 

 My coaching is FAST, PROFOUND and BULLSHIT FREE.

Which means I AM NOT the person for you if you want to work with a robotic "yes man," crystal dangling hippie or cookie-cutter life coach.

 PS. If you call me a "life coach" in any form of communication I'll cut you off for life. 

But if you want to live a life in flow that you never want to escape from, by becoming the person you never want to escape from, let's chat.
