About Matt Middler Coaching

Hi, I'm Matt, a qualified personal transformative coach, life coach and executive coach working with individuals and organisations across multiple sectors. I have over 20 years experience as a fundraiser, campaigner, volunteer, trustee, leader and public speaker. 


I'm passionate about working with people who wish to create positive impact in their organisations and communities. I want to enable greater impact by coaching leaders and future leaders to get out of their own way. I want to help you free yourself from the ways in which you are holding yourself back.


I work with amazing people across the UK and Europe; from self-employed freelancers and business owners to leaders within the third, public and private sectors.  

My wish for you is that I can enable you to be the best version of yourself so that you can make a bigger impact in the world.

I was at a crossroads about what I actually wanted from life. Spending time with Matt, and some challenging questions, has been really useful in helping me figure out what matters and to take action towards doing more of the things that bring quality to my life.

Virginia Anderson
CEO, Disability Snowsport UK

‘Matt has a calm manner, gently probing and questioning to help you come to your own realisations and

decisions. He helped to keep the sessions structured so there was focus and a journey. Thank you Matt for your guidance and kindness'.

Danielle Rowley

Head of Policy and Comms at Samaritans Scotland

‘Matt has helped me find a way to keep my focus on being strategic, and has given me the confidence to know I have the answers. His sessions leave me feeling energised and reassured that I'm doing a better job than I realise. Put simply, I'm a better leader

thanks to Matt's coaching’.

Matt’s coaching helped me to reflect on what was causing me to feel stuck, and to direct my motivation towards small actions. He’s a compassionate coach who genuinely cares about helping other people.

Kirsten Murray
Independent Art Director & Designer

Matt encouraged me to dig deep into why I made certain decisions and what might be holding me back. I would highly recommend a coaching session with him to give you the clarity you seek.

Sarah Sandle
CSR Manager, Embark Group

I immediately benefited from Matt's relaxed approach, gently encouraging me to navigate and understand my own thought process. I feel more centred and assured than I have in a long time.

What is Transformative Coaching?

Transformative coaching is a process of deep reflection, questioning and action planning. It’s a conversation between two people about one of us (you!). I can help you to widen your self-awareness, identify your blind spots and figure how best to move forward. 


Transformative coaching helps you to change your thinking to the degree that you couldn’t possibly continue to behave in the same way going forward. 


Transformative coaching helps you: 

  • Understand better the kind of life you really want to lead

  • Figure out what to do next and/or how to do it

  • See your situation from a new perspective 

  • Identify and get beyond the limiting beliefs that hold you back 

  • Create a plan to achieve your goals/dreams

About Matt

Life coach, business coach, executive coach

Hi I'm Matt. I have over 20 years experience of working and volunteering in the third sector in the UK. I have served on the board of several charities and have been a professional fundraiser since 2010, raising vital funds for national children, health and military charities. 


I hold an accredited Diploma in Transformative Coaching and it is my hope that I can coach leaders to create greater impact in their organisations and communities. Join me by finding out more about the transformative power of coaching.


Are you qualified?

I hold a Diploma in Transformative Coaching from Animas Centre for Coaching. The qualification is accredited by the Association for Coaching, International Coach Federation (ICF) and European Mentoring and Coaching Council and is the gold standard in coach training. It carries 123 approved coach specific training hours with the ICF.

What can we work on?

Coaching can help you attain a goal or make any other change in your life. For example, gain purpose in your life, access what resources and success you already have, look at situations differently to gain new insights, understand your own motivations better or get to the core of what stops you moving ahead in your life.

Is coaching like counselling or mentoring?

Coaching is about discovery through talking and reflecting, but it is quite different from therapy or counselling - it doesn’t seek to explain or fix the past. Coaching is also different from mentoring or consultancy as it isn't about providing answers to the client - instead you are facilitated to discover your own answers.

What about confidentiality?

Before the coaching begins, we will sign an agreement which outlines the expectations on both of us with regards to confidentiality and how we will work together. The agreement outlines an ethical framework and is in line with industry standards as set out by the International Coaching Federation.

Where will the coaching happen?

Most of my clients are coached over video call on Zoom. We can also hold our sessions over the telephone. If you would like to receive coaching face to face, please contact me for a bespoke quote.

I'd like to try before I buy, is this possible?

It can be difficult to get your head around what coaching is and how it can help you. For this reason, I offer a free introductory coaching session. We'll spend up to two hours to explore your coaching goal and create some powerful insights that will help you move forward.
