Answers to your questions

How long will it take for me to experience results?

When we work together, you have my total commitment.

For you to experience the results you want, it's essential that you too are committed.
That you make the necessary changes that will transform your life.

My coaching is designed to give you powerful and lasting transformation that creates success. Not temporary results.
Each client's experience is different but life-changing.

'As long as you know that you're prepared to dig deep and work out where your limitations might be, it's incredibly valuable when you identify for yourself what you can practically do.
Everything's achievable because YOU come up with those ideas. It crystallises a plan of action that takes you on a more constructive path than the one you're on' - Cathy T.

'Wow Matt, I've never had such clarity in 1 hour!' - Shannon D.

Will it work for me?

Absolutely.

As long as you’ve a desire for adventure, discovery and challenging your current thinking, then all’s possible.

Is coaching right for you?

How did you answer?

What do I get?

You get a powerful coaching experience designed to transform your life.

I’ll help you look at your habits and mindset in a different way than you’ve done before.

I’m here to serve you in a way that your family and friends don’t.
It’s not about me being your friend.

I’ll be the person in your life who asks you the questions that challenge you.
That sees what you’re capable of, knows you can achieve it and helps you get there with no strings attached.

We start with your complementary, 90 minute Adventure Session (more about that in the next section).

Then each week you’ll have a one-to-one coaching session with me which lasts 60 minutes.

8 week programme – 8 x 60 minute sessions.
12 week programme – 12 x 60 minute sessions
24 week programme – 24 x 60 minute sessions.

Between sessions, we’ll have a short check-in phone call.

You can also message or email me at anytime between sessions.

We work in a structured but flexible way.
We build week on week so you find yourself in a very different place than when you start.

You’ll get:

My total support.
My passion for what I do, my energy, motivation and wry sense of humour.
My creative and adventurous thinking that will help you explore and see new perspectives (like taking a step back and looking at your challenges through a different pair of glasses).
My depth of experience, broad range of skills and open mind.

All I ask from you is:

Your commitment and determination from day 1.
That you manage your time to create the space needed to focus and take action
.

If not now, when?

My commitment to professional best practice.

To provide you with the highest standards of service, I’m committed to my continued personal development in coaching practice.

I’m an obsessive learner and also have my own coach.
You’ll find all good coaches have their own coach.
We believe in it.

Former CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt once said:

“Everybody needs a coach.”

Here’s a tale he shared.

The advice that sticks out, I got from John Doerr.
He said Eric, “My advice to you is to have a coach.”

I initially resented the advice, because after all, I was a CEO. I was pretty experienced. Why would I need a coach? Am I doing something wrong? My argument was, how could a coach advise me if I’m the best person in the world at this?

But that’s not what a coach does.

They have to watch you and get you to be your best. A coach is somebody who looks at something with another set of eyes, describes it to you in [his] words, and discusses how to approach the problem.

Will I have to expose my whole life?

What I love about coaching is it’s forward looking.
It doesn’t dwell in the past or try to change what has been.

Sometimes though, to move forward, we need to look back.

If there’s something that keeps you stuck, we need to identify what that is.
The thing that’s perhaps subconsciously controlling your current actions and behaviour.

Your past experiences often give us a BIG clue.

Coaching explores where limiting beliefs and behaviours formed and developed.
Once identified, this puts you in an empowered position to transform your life.

I’ll be right by your side every step.

“I felt a bit reticent about opening myself up but the initial session reassured me completely. The rapport was there. If you’re having sessions with a coach like Matt who you enjoy spending time with, it becomes a pleasure.
You feel like you’re getting a cleansing experience. The uncertainty, the fear of the unknown, they get kind of dissipated throughout the process” – Cathy T.

Where do sessions take place?

Visual interaction with you is an important part of our work together.

Most of my sessions are via Skype, so we can work together anywhere in the world.
For occasional blips with technology, we can Whatsapp instead.

Or, if you’re based in London, we can arrange to meet in person.

Sounds great. What should I do next?

Once you get in touch, I’ll email you to arrange a short initial chat.
We’ll discuss the life you want to create and the success you want to achieve.
We check we’re a fit. It’s important we both feel excited to work together and there’s connection.

We then arrange your Adventure Session that lasts around 90 minutes.
Why do I call it this?
It’s a session of exploration.
We go deep into detail of the things you REALLY want.
We explore the landscape you are currently in and what lies just beyond the horizon for you.
Serious stuff but with all the curiosity and thrill you get from venturing into unmapped lands.

You’ll get some clarity, insight and even some light-bulb moments.
And the journey’s begun!

I’ll answer all your questions but there’ll be no hard sell.

Once you decide it’s a YES, a rush of excitement and doubt might stir inside.
That’s normal, it’s a life-changing decision.

And then . . . it’s time we show the world who you are and create success!
