Matthew also works from his retreat centre in South West France. Situated among the sunflower fields and vineyards of South Charente, The French Retreat is made up of an old manor house (maison de maitre), and a number of converted barns.


As well as being the venue for Matthew Relationship Courses The French Retreat hosts a number of workshops and is available to hire as a venue for support group reunions or for bespoke courses with Matthew. 

You can book Matthew for anything from an hour of coaching to a workshop. For Hoffman graduates he is available to support a reconnection weekend for your group. Complementary therapies such as massage, reiki, reflexology and aromatherapy are also available on-site.

Each room has its own en-suite. There's a salt-water outdoor pool, privacy in the depths of nature, and even a tree house. The food is highly acclaimed. To find out more go to
