As doctors we are altruistic, caring, and driven by the wish to make a difference. We possess a range of skills and experiences that make a difference. But just like everyone else we sometimes get stuck, face a clash of values, lose motivation, encounter health issues or have to make tough family decisions.

Mat has helped me to reflect on achievements in order to help achieve future goals. Coaching has enabled me to think of leadership skills with a broader mind and to allow me to take the time to lead and not just do. It has helped me to consider criticism and be able to move on from it rather than focus on
“Mat has an easy fluent conversational style and is very knowledgeable on a wide range of topics. He has a clear, honest and accurate approach. He is an attentive listener, genuinely inclusive and at ease talking to people from a variety of walks of life without preconceptions or prejudice. There is no sense of judgement, any approach will be treated in confidence, and advice will be given with the best of intentions and without any other hidden agenda. His advice has been life changing.”
“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!”
