Have you ever wondered how what it’s like to be homeless? How mental health problems develop? Or what it takes to change the odds?

Matt Vapor

Do you want to change your thinking or find motivation but don’t know where to start?

Do you need first hand insight for developing programs and initiatives focusing on domestic abuse, violence, mental health or homelessness?

Hi, I’m Matt Vapor and I founded Beneath the Surface Motivation and Coaching (BTSMC) in 2018. I’ve overcome many challenges in my life and I want to use them to help you change your life. I’ve overcome domestic abuse, dropping out of high school, homelessness, violence, addiction, super obesity and mental health issues. I’ve gone from being homeless with limited education to earning my Masters and became a university lecturer.

I use these experiences to provide organisations and community groups with presentations and workshops about mental health, obesity, addiction, domestic violence and homelessness. These presentations and workshops are based on my lived experience and provides people with a greater understanding of issues beneath the surface of a diagnosis or condition.

I also provide life coaching to those looking for help becoming the best version of themselves. I use my experiences to  help you identify the goals and your hurdles and help you create a pathway for you to overcome your challenges and reach your potential.
