"A true professional who is mindful in her approach and instinctively knows how best to support you - when to listen, when to help unpack thinking and even when to politely challenge. An invaluable guide in helping me navigate an ambitious career transition - and I now feel more empowered than ever to be forging a clear new path that reflects my values. In summary, coaching is an investment in your future that you won't regret."

Benjamin Head of International Marketing


"Working with SEVEN provided direction on how to take the next steps towards my change of career. The precise coaching process boosted my confidence allowing me to excel in conversations with senior professionals within different industries leading towards my goal."

William Scrum Master, Vodafone


"I found my sessions with SEVEN to be invaluable at teasing out what I wanted to achieve from my career. Based on our conversations, I gained not one but two of my dream jobs. If you are wondering whether to sign up for some careers coaching, I’d say - go for it. You never know where it will take you."

Rebecca Senior Consultant


"I really enjoyed the coaching journey that SEVEN guided me through. It was great how I always got something out of each session and even between sessions. Sometimes it would be a big revelation, sometimes a long term plan, sometimes a small actionable piece of advice. Sometimes something so deep it will always stay with me. By applying all of this I finally found the focus and the confidence I always needed. Thanks to that I managed to change my role, marking a pivotal step in my career."
