I founded Sport Psychology Kent because I have a passion to understand how the mind performs when things matter. I wanted to help people get results quickly using clear science, evidence based techniques, and no fluffy rubbish that's peddled by mediocre life coaches or psychologists. My passion for sport meant that this was the perfect proving ground for the skills and knowledge I have developed over many years of training and work. I have now expanded this passion to other areas of performance including the corporate world. It surprised me how much the skills that it takes to win Olympic gold medals could be transferred into the working environment. My aim is ensure that people perform effectively no matter what the situation.
Based in Kent and London, my core areas of expertise include performance psychology, individual mental readiness, leadership development, mental toughness or resilience training, cognitive behaviour coaching for performance, selection and assessment. I have worked at every level of sport from regional to international athletes and team including Team Great Britain and Paralympics Great Britain
My professional accreditations include a BA(Hons) MSc, PhD (Pending), Chartered Psychologist, and HCPC accredited psychologist, a diploma in CBT, psychometric accreditations including TUOA/P with the NEO PI-3, PROFILE:MATCH 2, and Spotlight, and am an associate fellow of the British Psychological Society
The CORE programme
After nearly 10 years working in high performance sport Matthew has noticed that there are a number of key characteristics that every athlete and coach in the performance setting has. He has distilled these skills into 4 characteristics identified by the acronym CORE. Check out this section to learn more about the CORE programme and start the ultimate high-performance mindset coaching journey.
High-performance mindset coaching can offer help with development in lots of areas such as, dealing with performance limiting thoughts, removing fear and nervousness, solving problems in your performances, knowing yourself, managing emotions, setting high-performance behaviours, combatting procrastination, improved self-esteem, increased mental toughness, and much more.
Weight loss program
Losing weight is one of the hardest things you will ever do. It was something I struggled with for my entire life and is still something I struggle with. in summer 2020 I decided to think about how to apply performance psychology principles to weight and fat loss. Thus began my journey into the psychology of dieting and the development of this programme.
This 10 week program is not a diet but a mental training plan to help you get the most annoying part of dieting under control... your mind. We will work on 4 key areas, finding your why, working on small goals, dealing with cravings, and what to do when the dark days come.
