Holly Matthews In Conversation at WAC

10 October 2023 @ 7:45 pm - 8:50 pm


Former TV actress (Waterloo Road, Casualty & Byker Grove) and singer (Sony Music) a widowed Mum of 2, Self Development Coach & founder of The Happy Me Project.


The Happy Me project is an online and in person, straight talking self development membership, podcast and award-winning, best selling book (Bloomsbury Publishing).

Holly’s Ted Talk has been watched by half a million people. She has appeared on Lorraine, BBC, ITV, Talk Radio, Channel 5 News and featured in The Daily Mail, Mirror, The Sun, Closer, Hello, Psychologies Magazine, Spirit & Destiny and Prima Magazine.

The Happy Me Project boasts two sell out workshop tours across the UK. More recently it has had two sell out restival events – a positive mindset festival event with guest speakers, activities and the punchy Happy Me Vibe running throughout.

The Happy Me Project has a focus on simplifying self development and takes the ‘fancy’ out of positive thinking.

Holly is a popular guest expert on podcasts, radio and TV, with her being the ‘go to’ in self development on BBC radio, where producers call her the ‘motivator in chief’.

Holly is neurodivergent and has diagnosed ADHD which informs much of her work. She was recently nominated for a Diversity Award for her work and the accessibility she aims to create for people across all brain types.

She has amassed over 50,000 followers across her social media platforms. Her award winning YouTube Channel Happy Me TV also offers regular advice on navigating life and all its challenges.

Holly used this space to vlog about the death of her husband to brain cancer, which generated huge press interest in her story and allowed her to turn her pain into something positive.

She is a qualified Life Coach, NLP practitioner, hypnotherapist and award-winning author. She has coached thousands of people across the world across all walks of life, from Mums on the school run to Brit winning pop stars.

Her debut book The Happy Me Project- A no nonsense guide to self development won Health and Wellbeing Magazine’s best wellbeing book of 2022 and hit number 1 on Amazon the day it released.

Holly’s relatable and raw approach to self development has her teaching people how to feel ‘more happy and less crappy’ in a way that reaches those that never thought ‘self development’ would be for them.
