Matthew Ball

Certified Divorce Coach

My name is Matthew Ball and I was born in London, England. In 2002 I moved to Canada with my wife and in 2010, we decided to divorce. It hit me hard. I fell apart and I hit rock bottom quickly. Outside of going through the legal process of getting divorced, I looked everywhere for inspiration and guidance to help me through the emotional journey. I found nothing that I could relate to. All I was looking for was something or someone that would help guide me out of those dark places and show me how I could create a new life for myself; one that I was passionate about and motivated to live by each and every day!

Since 2012, I have coached hundreds of men and women across the globe, helping them handle the emotional stress that divorce can bring and show them how they can recreate not just themselves, but a life they are passionate about.

She’s Gone Move On is my way of giving to those that need help and inspiration. My goal is for the website and book (which will be out in 2019) is to help Inspire men who have been affected by divorce, to move forward and live a great life!

Remember, you have your whole life ahead of you. Start living it now!
