Matt Halfin, Founder
I’m a qualified Innate Health coach, business mentor and founder of Unstoppable! on a mission to help everyone on our magnificent planet be unstoppable in pursuing their purpose.
I have spent 16 years building and growing disruptive services that challenged and changed their markets in sectors including media (ITV, Planet Hollywood), telecoms (Vodafone Group, Three), government (UK Trade & Investment, OpentoExport) and social care (Oomph! Wellness). Having worked as an employee and mentor with organisations of many sizes, sectors and motivations, I really know what it’s like on the front line for those creating and working in organisations great or small that are seeking to do something remarkable.
Before plucking up the courage to start my own business I’ve been on the same journey as many of you. I’ve always been fortunate to work on fascinating projects but was somehow always disappointed and frustrated by all those jobs that never quite lived up to their promise. I inevitably ended up concluding that I would have to look elsewhere for the fulfilment and enjoyment I was craving – that mythical next role that would be The One!
Through my own initially reluctant exploration into the world of personal development I’ve gained a radically new, but beautifully simple and reliable understanding of how our minds work that made sense of that nagging feeling that I must be missing something. I was, and it was fundamental -The Missing Link – as Innate Health founding father Sydney Banks describes it. It turned out that my experience of all those roles was an inside job, coming from my own mind not all those challenging colleagues, clients and situations that looked like they were making things harder than they needed to be.
Having seen everything I was innocently doing to contribute to my imperfect experience of professional life, my resilience, relationships, confidence and effectiveness were transformed.
For the first time I was able to be fully myself at work navigating the inevitable ups and downs with far more clarity, creativity and humour.
Ultimately, when I was able to listen beyond the mental noise and tune into what really mattered to me I was able to break free of the direction I felt I ought be travelling e.g. up the corporate ladder, and follow my heart and instincts into the unknown. I embarked on a new type of search for employment that led me to totally unexpected roles that were true and right for me and in line with values I never quite realised I held.
Having seen how helpful this understanding was for me, I felt compelled to share it with anyone who was getting stuck on those same old misunderstandings and support them to achieve remarkable things.
I qualified as an Innate Health coach with Ian Watson and Carol Boroughs at InsightSpace in 2015, and with the support of mentors such as bestselling author and coach Chantal Burns and leading US people performance experts Ken Manning and Robin Charbit at Insight Principles I’ve been working with business founders, teams, schools, universities and individuals to see what becomes possible when we work with, rather than against, the incredible design of our minds.
If you feel that you or your organisation is capable of much more and would like to find out what it takes to be unstoppable let’s talk.
George Halfin, Associate
I have worked in design and marketing for many years within the charity, private and arts sectors, for organisations such as AXA Insurance, Terrence Higgins Trust and Absolute Return for Kids (ARK). Most recently I developed and ran an online counselling and groupwork programme for people struggling with addictions for a national UK charity.
I came across Innate Health (often called the 3 Principles) by accident when I was asked to organise the UK’s first ever Innate Health conference for what is now the Innate Health Centre (the premiere centre for learning this approach in the UK). I was struck by the profound impact this understanding could have on individuals and society as a whole. At this time I was at a relatively happy point in my life and had no idea how much my ‘over-thinking’ was impacting my career and personal life! This began a journey that has made a profound impact on my life and that of my husband and young family.
I graduated from the One Thought Professional Institute in early 2014 where I was trained and mentored by some of the leading practitioners and pioneers of this approach from around the world.
Since then I have collaborated with my husband Matt delivering resilience training for organisations and have worked with mums of younger children to help them regain confidence in their own abilities in their home and professional lives. I’ve also set up the Overthinkers Anonymous community to help fellow overthinkers see the habits of thinking that hold them back and a live a life with greater spontaneity, resilience, peace of mind, love and laughter.
