Reviews

★★★★★

“Mel is enthusiastic, kind, insightful, joyful, motivating and honest. At the start of this journey, I didn't know if I could achieve my ultimate goal of finding a new career path but Mel gave me the confidence to believe that it was absolutely possible. A year on and I am now in a completely different role and feeling very positive about the future. I now feel so much more aware of my strengths and the confidence to pursue these. I cannot thank Mel enough for her part in this and for her belief in me. I would recommend Mel and this process to anyone who is looking to grow and develop.”

"Mel from SEVEN has been an incredibly insightful, motivational and proactive coach and thanks to our sessions I've just landed my dream job. On top of this, my conversations with Mel have enabled me to make very positive changes in my life outside work, and I am much happier and more grounded for it. After every session Mel wrote-up incredibly thorough follow-ups, with clear tasks for me to work through to progress to the next stage, and then between sessions Mel was always checking in to share inspiring articles and videos."
