Mat is great for showing your problem from a completely different point of view. He can ask questions that you end up thinking about for days and they help to see your problem as you never thought about. He is not offering solutions but a great help to find your own way!

Helping me see the positives from my problems is a great quality in coaching. Especially when we looked at the difficulties I am facing currently. You are very good at re-framing problems to help see other ways to approach them.

I would like to say I’ve not used the word career in a positive sense for almost 10 years. It had felt a career had deteriorated into a ‘job’. Thank you

I also felt you identified that I am always trying to improve what I am not good at and actually there are aspects that I should view as being strengths such as living day by day, week by week compared to living in the future.

Exam results came out yesterday and I passed!!! Unbelievable. The session we did where we talked about framing things as ‘not yet’ rather than ‘fail’ was super helpful. It helped me transform my approach.
