A qualified lawyer, life coach, NLP practitioner and wellbeing trainer, I combine corporate, counselling and coaching expertise to help businesses move from where they are now to where they want to be. Whether one to one coaching or wellbeing workshops, I help busy professionals develop their potential, improve performance and fast track happiness and success. Other benefits include improved management and leadership, greater productivity and employee empowerment, lower absenteeism and higher retention rates.
Having experienced the high pressure corporate world first-hand, I have a particular interest in the challenges of our ‘always on’ lives and the impact of successful wellbeing management on organisational effectiveness.
Put simply, getting serious about happiness benefits all stakeholders, with a more positive culture and happier workforce having a knock-on effect on growth, profitability and market share. That’s why industry leaders invest in their people from a grass roots level up to the top.
Helping entry level and early stage professionals to set goals, overcome limiting beliefs and meet deadlines with conﬁdence and clarity.
Empowering newly qualified professionals and middle managers to conquer obstacles, achieve professional goals and move towards promotion.
Supporting professionals in senior and leadership positions to crystallise strategic planning, build strong teams and inspiring working cultures.
What happens at home impacts on work and vice versa which is why supporting employees in the round breeds results. Happy employees are productive employees.
“For years, CEOs of some of the most successful and largest companies have relied on executive coaches. Henry McKinnell, CEO of Pfizer, Meg Whitman, CEO of eBay, and David Pottruck, CEO of Charles Schwab & Co., are just a few who rely on a “trusted adviser”
“Mel delivered a really engaging and thought-provoking 2 day Mental Health First Aid Course training for our internal cohort of staff at Brandon Trust, a charity for people with learning disabilities. The topics were handled sensitively and we all left feeling confident in our ability to support and signpost people who may be suffering with mental health related issues. We are using the training as a springboard to explore how we can develop our internal well-being and support programmes. Thanks, Mel, for a fascinating two days”
“Thank you, Melanie, for the 2 day Mental Health First Aid training you provided for The Princes Trust last week. It was incredibly helpful to revisit mental health in a way that is very user friendly, practical and provides guidance about what to actually do if someone is in need. It was absolutely great!”
“Mel delivered an inspiring Mindfulness Masterclass to a group of older men caught in the criminal justice system. Her audience engaged with her extremely positively, helped by her personal style and well thought through session. Many of our men have huge anxieties and issues and this type of session gives them some quick wins in addressing them. We would happily recommend Mel to you to help you or your business think positively”
“Melanie is an excellent speaker/presenter. Her mental health first aid course was informative and engaging. It would be useful for any business where staff are the keystone of the business”
While I’m happy to mentor during our sessions, coaching isn’t about telling you what to do. As your coach, I’m more of a sounding board and facilitator, empowering you to work out what you want to be, do and have – and how to achieve your dreams – your way. The latter is key because having space to work out what you want rather than being told what you should do, is the surest way to success and fulfilment.
I conduct sessions in person and via Skype. A single session lasts up to 1.5 hours with various packages to choose from depending on your needs. I offer a complimentary 30 minute consultation at the start of our time together to determine whether coaching is right for you and what your coaching journey looks like. Every client is different so this allows me to tailor a package which gives you the best return on investment.
Before each session you’ll receive a short questionnaire which you send back to me before we talk. This helps you gain clarity on your goals, challenges, hopes and dreams, ensuring that you get the most out of our session as possible. After each session, I send you inspiring resources which are carefully tailored to your needs. These help motivate and inspire you to achieve your goals, keeping momentum and motivation in full flow.Book Your Free 30 Minute Consultation
