Dr Anna Matthews​

Founder and CEO

I am the Founder of UMO, which I set up whilst training as a therapist, working as a specialist mental health mentor and prior to being an academic. My aim has always been to develop a service that not only met the needs of our clients but was safe, of high quality and delivered by very well qualified and experienced mental health practitioner with upmost professionalism. I have also developed and run government approved courses for specialised mentors to qualify for professional membership as well as delivered workshops, lectured on the subject and presented at many conferences. I am a Minster and Government advisor, Chair of UMHAN and advisor to both the Mental Health Advisory Group of Universities UK and Student Minds: I also sit on the board for the Mental Health and Wellbeing in Higher Education group.
