Hey, this is Matt! I’m so glad you stopped by to check things out, and learn more about working with me as your Coach.

As a Certified Life Coach & NLP Master Practitioner, as well as a Blogger, Podcaster, and Advocate, I’ve made it my mission in life to help people just like you discover their true, authentic self, regardless of their past. To retake their life by kicking anxiety to the curb and moving forward with a renewed sense of peace and confidence.

Written from my experiences in learning how to grieve my lost childhood and lost innocence as a survivor of childhood trauma, Surviving Grief takes you through the process in a personal way that is validating and offers hope for even the most troubling of circumstances.

The grieving process can be discouraging, confusing, and disheartening. For abuse survivors, grieving a traumatic past brings up an endless supply of emotions that can be difficult to sit with and work through.

Each stage brings it’s own unique set of challenges, but also an opportunity for self-compassion and growth. I created this resource for you, Friend. What you are experiencing is real, but that doesn’t mean that all Hope is lost.

After completing therapy I knew I needed support but of a different kind. A Life Coach seemed like the next step. I was hesitant at first, not sure what to expect.

Matt made it easy. His relaxed demeanour made him easy to talk to and his patience was appreciated. He made me feel heard and validated. He gave me hope. He provided a listening ear and posed questions that helped me reflect and find the answers within myself.

I am grateful for the coaching I received from Matt at Beyond Your Past and I can see the outcome of our time together making a difference in my life.”

Matt speaks about difficult, stigmatized topics with warmth and keen insight that lets clients and podcast listeners know they’re in good hands. As someone who began his healing journey long after the traumatic events of his childhood and early adolescence, I know that Matt’s voice and his story will resonate with so many people out there feeling lost.

Matt’s first hand understanding of trauma and anxiety allows him to relate to people at any point on their own healing journey. The evolution of his blog into a full-blown advocacy website is proof of his passion and commitment to helping others. I look forward to more collaborations with him in the future.
