“I was constantly stressed and feeling overwhelmed in both my professional and personal life, unable to clear my mind and change my practices. Upon one session with Melanie, I was able to recognise my own strengths and identify patterns within my own behaviour that both help and hinder me.

Obstacles that I placed in front of myself have now been removed and my thought process has completely changed, giving me more clarity each day. Within weeks, I was performing better at work and am no longer ‘taking it home’ with me.  This has ultimately improved the way I am in my personal life. My mood has become lighter and I feel calmer. My relationships are better. In turn, I prioritise exercise and self-care again. These practices came back into my life and I feel better for it, like I have more control. I have learnt to tune in and trust my intuition and be more patient and accepting of myself.

Melanie will ask hard questions and it makes you look inwards. This is something that I have avoided for a long time.  We are so often blind to the good things that others can see. Not only does she offer you this insight which has improved my confidence, but she has the ability to make you feel less alone in your battles. Melanie gives practical advice too, if requested, which I didn’t expect. She has directed me to particular tools and has sent me articles that I may not have come across myself. This personable approach makes the coaching seem more like a lifestyle change than a consultation.

The help is not generic. Melanie listens to you and tailors her words carefully to best serve you in that moment. I had been ‘dabbling’ with the idea of a coach for a long time. Sometimes these things find you and sometimes they don’t. Seek opportunity…. Melanie has genuinely  shifted the way I think and feel about myself and the life I am living. The things I want are clearer and within reach now thanks to her guidance”.

“Meeting Mel was one of the greatest things that happened to me this year.

The idea of being life-coached was very exciting and slightly scary at the same time, but I decided to give it a go and have never regretted it even for a fraction of a second! The experience has been amazing, extremely valuable and very helpful!

Talking to Mel helped me realize quite a few things about myself and to look at certain things from a different perspective. I could make some important improvements, which made me a happier person and hugely helped me in my personal and professional life. I loved Mel’s way of guiding me through the thought process and leading me to realisations that I’d never come across before – just because we all tend to think in a certain way.

She was very professional and very sensitive with difficult subjects. It felt like talking to a very good friend.

I would highly recommend her if you are a looking for a professional life coach who will help you to live a happier and more fulfilled life”.

“Melanie was incredibly helpful; she was insightful, she was understanding, and helped me to think of ways round issues and problems I had, or perceived I had!

She invited me to examine how the various areas of my life informed each other, and this was very revealing. I consider myself an insightful person, but she helped me to look at things truly; often it takes someone else to really reflect things to us. 

She came from a very practical, yet empathetic stance, and was constantly encouraging. I felt that I could really take those small steps towards achieving what I wanted to achieve, and that it wasn’t as daunting as I had thought.

I think I had a tendency to over complicate things, and also to expect too much of myself. She helped me to break it down into small achievable goals, many of which I have now achieved. 

Her knowledge, natural intelligence, warmth and wisdom gave me confidence that she believed in me, and therefore I should believe in myself a bit more!”

“I wasn’t sure about what life coaching was exactly but one session with Mel was enough to make me feel like there was a plan for me and we would reach it together. Time flew by and I couldn’t believe how efficient we were solving what I thought were insurmountable challenges. I felt appreciated and well looked after. Mel truly cared about my wellbeing and it was clear from the start that she had a plan as to how to get the best out of me. I felt so much at ease. Mel’s coaching could best be described as the union of understanding, care and competence”.

“I was at a point in my life when I needed some advice, guidance and mentoring. I approached Mel and she was able to provide me with the aforementioned as well help me set out goals and give me the confidence to go and achieve these goals. If you’re feeling a little lost or directionless then you should definitely go see Mel”.

“Having never been to a life coach before, I was unsure of what to expect but Melanie’s professionalism and friendly nature put me right at ease. Melanie was very helpful in establishing my true values in life, values I had never thought to consider previously. She was very calm and understanding and helped me to develop my ideas whilst providing guidance and reassurance. I would highly recommend Melanie and look forward to our follow up sessions together”.

“Having Melanie as my Coach has given my business a kick start. Our by-weekly coaching sessions have stopped me from procrastinating and I have started to take action such as setting up my website and getting my business cards printed. We have been communicating by Skype and as skeptical as I was initially, the sessions work really well. I believe this is down to Melanie’s strong listening skills, her ability to capture my needs and also provide me with confidence by giving me reassurance that I am making good progress. Thanks to Melanie I am finally on track”.

“I am so glad that I had the opportunity to have a coaching session with Melanie. I couldn’t believe how much I got out of our one session! I had many ‘a-ha’ moments and Melanie really helped me to pin down what I wanted to work on and enabled me to see how I could shift my perspective on challenges I was facing. I left the session with clarity and inspiration and actionable steps that I could take to help me achieve my goals. I would highly recommend Melanie as a coach!”
