Work with Me - Matt Essam

Whether you are an established freelancer or a small creative business, working with me will help you to overcome obstacles and challenges you are currently facing and reach your full potential.

I trained to be a coach because I witnessed first hand, the profound impact it had on both my own life and those around me. As a qualified coach, I now work with people one to one and on a group basis through my workshops and courses.

Unfortunately, I can't help everyone

I am very specific about who I work with as I base my pricing on results not time. I am looking for ambitious, creative professionals who want to take their business and life to the next level. You must be committed, both financially and emotionally, to achieving your goals, otherwise, I can't help you. In order for me to determine if we could work together, I offer a free 15 minute discovery session over the phone, where I can find out more about you and your business and you can learn more about how we can work together.

    Katie Ryrie Writer and Musician

    My sessions with Matt really helped me to clearly define my goals and achieve things I previously thought were beyond my reach, including having my music played on BBC radio and winning new freelance clients.

    Jenna Coulthard Founder of Bobenna Design

    Before I started working with Matt, I knew what I wanted to do, but I didn’t really know how to get there. I wasn’t measuring my performance at all and I rarely wrote down my goals or aims, they mainly stayed in my head. I look forward to our meetings, as I know at the end, a problem will be resolved, as conflict dissolved or a plan of action made.
