Matt Shepley – Founder / Director
Matt has a friendly, straightforward, no-nonsense approach to Mental Health Recovery Life Coaching, Trauma Therapy & Peer Support following years of working as a Front Line Key Worker with Adult Complex Needs in some of the country’s toughest and most economically deprived areas.
These experiences have given him an insight into the inner workings of PTSD & ADHD in the community and the barriers people face when dealing with the NHS, DWP, Housing, personal finances (debt), and substance use as a form of self-medication.
Matt has battled and successfully overcome both Single Events PTSD & Complex PTSD, and also has a diagnosis of combined ADHD which he received at the age of 44 which has led him into researching the comorbidity between the two conditions more heavily.
Matt’s personal experiences of PTSD and recovery can be read here in this blog post.
Matt is continually humbled by people’s resilience and will to survive and this motivates him to give support to those who are trying to make sense of what is going on in their lives and move themselves and their families forward.
Qualified in Rewind & IEMT Trauma Therapy, Matt has found his insights into the condition invaluable in treating PTSD and coaching ADHD.
Matt is available for ADHD and Post Traumatic Growth (PTG) PTSD Coaching, Rewind, and IEMT Therapy which is aimed at working on different areas of PTSD symptomatology in a way that does not require disclosure of the traumatic event from the client.
