"The coaching journey with Melinda has afforded me the opportunity to spring clean my mind without prejudice. Over the last 3 months Mel has time and again been a sounding board to bounce ideas and strategies off, always helping to tease out the actual message.
Mel doesn't provide the solutions, she provides the tools that help you create the solutions. Mel's commitment to the coaching journey is evident in the genuine interest she displays in you achieving your goals. Mel actively listens and engages with you to realise your full potential.
The coaching program Mel offers is structured and formal and when required flexible to suit where you are at on your development journey. Engaging in this process has resulted in a huge leap in personal growth, it's confronting, it's honest and it is one of the most valuable learning opportunities I have ever experienced, I am a better Manager as a result of participating in this program.
I highly recommend Melinda's coaching program to any manager or potential manager, this is a journey that will create possibilities."

"... due to an organisational restructure, it was announced that our unit was being closed down and I found myself out of work. Over the past two years I had gone through ... a knee reconstruction and two operations ..., moved in with my partner joining two families together and got married. As you can imagine this was a very rewarding and challenging time. I spoke with a friend about starting a business she referred me to Melinda [for coaching]. I expected Melinda to provide me with business advice to help set up my business. What I ended up with was much more than this. Melinda not only helped me to develop my business plan she also helped me where 10 sessions with a psychologist had not. As I was living in a constant state of fight or flight, jumping from one priority to another, not able to prioritise, not able to effectively make decisions, self-defensive, worrying ridiculously. I felt afraid most of the time and did not like who I had become.
I am happy to say thanks to Melinda’s integrity, wisdom and skills I was able to acknowledge where I needed help, act on it and let go of what I could not change. I am now focusing on my strengths again and increasing my confidence daily. I see a wisdom and strength within myself that has never been present before and I look forward to establishing a new career path.
I have a lot to live for and Melinda was able to show me this when I could not see it."
