Feedback from Relationship Workshops


The workshop was outstanding, thank you Emma and Matthew.  Feeling very grateful, and enjoying the instant improvement in our relationship; we already are noticing the change we can create. May 2021


I came away feeling more confident in myself and feeling much more connected and I had some new skills that I understood around communication. B, April 2021


For anyone with a significant relationship, I would recommend this course for the tools and strategies it gives to keep communication open

MRW May 2021


We were looking for a re-set, chance to melt the build-up of bad feelings and to remember what made us a good couple. The sessions gave us that, and the tools are easy to use in the moment when the proverbial is hitting the fan! Amazing facilitation, made all the difference to have an actual couple demonstrating the tools and showing that no relationship is constantly easy. London 2021


How to find the words to thank you. Simply put, you saved our relationship in one gentle, powerful and life-changing weekend. We woke up on the Monday morning so in love. It honestly felt like someone had waved a magic wand. The programme felt so gentle but so profound at the same time. As we listened and shared and did the exercises it was as if the sludge of years of resentment, misunderstandings and being in almost constant stress and power struggle lifted and we finally saw one another clearly from a place of love. And two weeks later that is still going. The tools we learnt were so powerful and easy to use and we’ve been using them ever since and it has transformed our communication. Who knew it could be this simple! Everyone in a relationship needs to do this course. I had high expectations of the course as it came highly recommended and I had heard of Matthew’s wonderful reputation, but I could never expected to have walked away feeling so deeply back on track and in love. Nothing short of miraculous. I wouldn’t change a thing. Thank you thank you thank you xxx


Feedback from private Family courses


"After four day's of relationship coaching with Mathew, my family came in from the cold. We allowed ourselves to be vulnerable and to hear each other for the first time without passing judgement or misinterpreting what the other was saying. We are now committed to each other and after decades of strife, we siblings are not only wonderfully close but genuine friends."

The French Retreat family therapy workshop is extremely beneficial and transformational. Matthew has given our family an entirely new language, which enables us to communicate with each other more appreciatively and compassionately. During our five day retreat, Matthew was unreservedly present, and committed to us. We all felt, and continue to feel, the benefits of his knowledge, wisdom and love.


The calm environment, the comfortable accommodation and the excellent food of the French Retreat all sustained our work and contributed greatly to the success of our retreat.

Feedback from Finding Love June 2020:


I felt very safe and held with the Pruens' respectful, compassionate and knowledgeable facilitation.



I found it to be a truly wonderful, enlightening, joyous, humbling and connecting experience. The workshop has left me feeling really excited about putting some of my learning into practise.

Thank you for a wonderful workshop experience. As always, the professionalism was outstanding, and the workshop was delivered with great skill, compassion and attention to detail, despite being held via a new online delivery method. Thank you so much! Helen Holwill



I really enjoyed it even though it was not easy at times to look myself in the eye and realise certain things. But such a safe space and superb facilitation.

Feedback from

The Couples' Course


"Despite years of advanced education in communication, negotiation and business leadership, neither one of us had received any training in effective conflict resolution in relationships.  Matthew taught us how to communicate with compassion and without judgment.  He helped us to find new and better ways of resolving conflicts and how important the words we use can be.  In working with Matthew, we were able to restore the love that had been buried under years of conflict and resentment and to move forward. Matthew has a gift in being able to cut through the rhetoric and get to the heart of the problem, indifferent to back stories and blame, and nurture reconnection between two people. We have recommended Matthew to a number of close friends and continue to see him a few hours every quarter for an “MOT.”

Feedback from Corporate Team building

"I met Matthew at The Hoffman Process and subsequently worked with him on Individual Coaching and Team Building within my company.

One of the first things you notice is Mathew's sense of humour, vivacity, empathy, engaging manner and exuberant personality. A natural born leader and a person one automatically disarms to, allowing you to open up and engage. On speaking to those who work with Matthew among my team, an underlying theme emerges in that he brings passion, enthusiasm and an innate sense of fun to his work – even to the mundane aspects of teamwork. 

I always came away feeling that Matthew has refined the art of managing people’s expectations, showering those around him with his contagious optimism and self-belief."
