Life Coaching & Career Coaching

We provide ICF (International Coaching Federation) accredited life coaching, personal coaching and career coaching; helping you to gain clarity on your life or career direction and supporting you to develop and achieve your goals with confidence.

Our professionally trained coaches are ICF accredited with a wealth of background experience and expertise;
we are professional, confidential, motivational and focussed on supporting you to achieve your goals.

What is life coaching?

Life coaching is a confidential process with a coach that enables you to define your goals, help overcome possible challenges, find solutions and develop the confidence and momentum to achieve your goals. Coaching brings focus, objectivity and clarity to your thoughts and provides support, challenge and motivation to enable you to achieve your goals. A coach does not give advice; a coach is not a therapist, nor a counsellor.

What is career coaching?

Career coaching is a confidential process with a coach who supports you to develop your work and career path. A career coach will help you to think about your strengths, your values and your motivation to enable you to create a career development plan. A coach will support you by listening, questioning and sometimes challenging your assumptions and enabling you to build the confidence to achieve your career goals.

When might you use a coach?

  • When you would like the confidence to try something new
  • When you are unsure about your next career move
  • When you would like the time to think about your goals for the future
  • When you know what your goals are but something stops you from achieving them

The coaching process:

We recommend a series of 4-6 coaching sessions of 2 hours per session.
The sessions can be face to face or via telephone.
Each session will clarify your goals for the session and support you to progress against those goals.
Following each session, follow up support is provided to ensure goals and actions set stay on track and on-going support and motivation is provided.

The relationship between you and your coach is vital for success so we offer a chemistry session prior to assignment to ensure that you and your coach will work together effectively.


“I have been working with Melanie since March 2015. As both an entrepreneur and a coach, I quickly realised the value that Melanie, with all her experience and expertise, would bring to our coaching sessions and consequently to my business and to me. I like her straight-forward, practical approach and her action-based outcomes. Melanie reflects back at me the realities of my situation, giving me a clearer picture of myself and my capabilities; whilst pushing me to achieve my goals. Between sessions, Melanie continues to support me, via email and phone, and is generous in sharing her knowledge and experience when asked. By working with Melanie, I have been able to push forward with business objectives in a focused and organised way, whilst juggling a variety of life changes and challenges as well. Brilliant Melanie, thank you!”
