About Matthew:

A Londoner by birth, Matthew is now settled in the Marches where he has a private practice as a dramatherapist. He graduated as a secondary school teacher before going on train in filmmaking. After several years in education, he developed a new career embracing sales and commercial marketing, management consultancy, and organisational development within both public and private sectors. Matthew then shifted course again, undertaking training as a dramatherapist at the University of Roehampton, subsequently enjoying a 15 year career working with young people, parents and teachers.

For ten years he has been a senior Lecturer at Roehampton University, teaching the dramatherapy masters course which employs a ‘ritual based’ theatre model of therapy. This is where Matthew first came across the work of James Roose-Evans.

Having seen at first hand the transformative potential of creativity and the arts in his own life and career, Matthew is delighted become the newest member of the Board of Trustees of the Bleddfa Centre.
