What My Wonderful Clients Say

  • I have just finished the “choosing solo” course and found it incredibly uplifting and inspiring. It covered all the issues and fears that I have spent months grappling with in a very practical and honest way. Mel is a fantastic coach who is very open in her approach and and offers sensible, practical information and advice. I would recommend this programme for anyone at an early stage of their thoughts about solo motherhood. I found it of real benefit to be able to share experiences with women in similar circumstances.

  • This was a very informative course which really helped me consolidate my thinking and feelings about this venture. Mel is extremely responsive and happy to go the extra mile to ensure she can answer your specific questions. The 3 evenings were well divided to cover different components of the decision making process, and it gave me confidence, thinking that I had already considered a lot of the aspects mentioned, as well as new ideas and food for thought. I found the online format a little daunting at first but this worked well too.

  • I found Mel’s coaching sessions really informative and helpful in helping me to make decisions about how to move forward. It was great to have the support of the other women on the course and it was fabulous having the chance to ask questions and share experiences! I’d highly recommend this course!

  • I already knew that I wanted to become a solo mum but Mel’s Choosing Solo course has given me to confidence to go for it! Apart from being able to benefit from Mel’s wealth of knowledge and experience, having the opportunity to meet other women in a similar situation was invaluable to me.
