Reviews

★★★★★

“SEVEN career coaching gave me more than I could possibly imagine. My coach Kim was amazing, she helped me bring my true self to work and succeed in my career progression and transition to a new role. I loved Kim's approach, on the one hand she has an excellent frameworks toolkit that helps structure thinking and keeps the conversation focused, on the other hand each session was tailored to me and we were discussing things that were relevant to me. In only 6 sessions I achieved goals I set for myself as 3 months goals - magic.”


Tatiana Senior Manager, Accenture

★★★★★

“I got in touch with SEVEN after being made redundant during Covid. Over the six weeks, my coach Kim helped me transform the situation into a growth opportunity. It was a perfect balance of practical and emotional guidance, all completely tailored to what I needed each week. It has left me with a fresh outlook on where I want to take my career, and given me more confidence to pursue new exciting avenues.”


Bridget Content Director, Lyst

★★★★★

“Kim is an expert in helping you to refocus your priorities and look after yourself. Her caring approach helped me to get some much needed headspace as I navigated a difficult relationship and was seeking a greater work-life balance. “I’m so much happier now, with a new partner, having launched a business and finally moving to the countryside.”


Leanne, Founder & Finance Director Tights Club

★★★★★

“Kim is a brilliant and thoughtful communicator who always brings energy, challenge and support. She combines her professional expertise with sound business and commercial understanding- and most importantly a good sense of humour and calmness under pressure”


Neil M, HR Director Severn Trent

★★★★★

“Having Kim as my coach and mentor proved invaluable. I not only grew my confidence to stand up to my boss and state my self worth, but later landed a great new job in a totally different industry. “I genuinely don’t think I’d have done it without the coaching she gave me. I cannot thank her enough”
