Coaching Vs DIY

A few words from Matt…

I dealt with stress and anxiety the hard way. I figured it all out by myself. No doctors, no medication, no books on stress or anxiety, no websites and no therapists.

Do I recommend this approach for others?

No way.

Simply because it’s very difficult to figure it all out yourself, and the pain and suffering in the meantime just isn’t worth it.

Think about it using this analogy… is it easier to figure out YOUR relationship problems or is it easier to give someone else advice about THEIR relationship problems? Of course it’s easier giving advice than self-analysing your way to relationship bliss. You can see ‘the truth’ with a friend’s problems much easier than you can see your own problems.

It’s the same with stress and anxiety. It’s harder for you to see your problems, but it’s easy for me to see them. Because you’re ‘in the soup’, the truth or reality of the situation isn’t obvious to you.

Perspective is everything.

Just like a Personal Trainer will push you hard in the gym, keep you motivated and keep you on track, a stress or anxiety coach will push you to do the techniques required that can create the change you’re looking for.

Keeping you accountable will help you follow-through and gain back control of your mind, body and emotions, allowing you to start enjoying work again.

My coaching is for you if…

  • You like/love your job but “it’s killing you”
  • You’re well paid, but highly stressed, and want to keep your job
  • Your family depends on your income
  • You’re experiencing several reoccurring stress or anxiety symptoms listed above

Who I Work With

I only work with high performance entrepreneurs, business owners and corporate employees who are committed to growing personally and professionally.

My focus is not just on fixing work stress and anxiety but working consistently with you on your mental, emotional and physical health for prevention as well as for maintenance of optimum health and well being.

1-on-1 coaching starts at USD$5,000 per month.
