Mark came to SEVEN at breaking point- he knew it was time for a change.
A negative professional experience had left him lacking in confidence. He felt under appreciated, miserable and stuck within his career.
Bruna came to SEVEN feeling uninspired. She had been living in London for a year, working as a research associate within financial services. She had hit the ceiling within her company but didn’t know where to go or how to move forward.
In a response to our understanding that those of you whom haven’t had career coaching previously, often ask ‘so how does career coaching work?’ we’ve asked each of our leading Coaches to describe the process and their approach in their own words.

Remember I mentioned Henry Ford’s quote in the 3rd part of the series “whether you think you can, or think you can’t – you’re right”. Your beliefs about yourself influence your thoughts, so really what is at play here is an awareness of your inner beliefs and how those inner beliefs can determine your success as a leader.
Where to begin! I’ve just spent a truly transformative 6 months working with Oliver from SEVEN. I was feeling really stuck when I started thinking about coaching. I had a seemingly great job, lots of friends, a supportive family but somehow I was feeling unfulfilled and anxious and wondering if this was it? I had an idea of what I wanted my life and work to feel like but I felt completely at a loss as to how to achieve it. After an incredibly inspiring telephone conversation with Evelyn from SEVEN she suggested Oliver as a coach and so it began. I had no idea how empowering it would be to have someone in my corner whose soul aim was to help me become the best possible version of myself and make those daydreams a reality. The amount of energy and enthusiasm that he injected into our sessions was infectious. He provided me with endlessly interesting and helpful resources and was brilliantly creative in his approach to our sessions. Oliver has helped me work out what I need in my life to make it feel fulfilling and exciting. He has also helped me to value my unique skills and strengths and to devise a strategy for using them more effectively at work and in my personal life. As a result of my work with Oliver I've restructured my work so that I can focus on what I love, I’ve negotiated a more flexible set up at work so I can travel more and I feel empowered and more confident in my personal relationships than I ever have before. Perhaps most importantly. I now feel like I’m in charge of my life and I can achieve the things that once thought were beyond my reach.
I can say with utmost confidence that Oliver from SEVEN has completely reinvigorated my career, helping to open up new opportunities for the future. He did this by helping me find the core of who I am and then use these skills to the best of my abilities.
When we first started working together, I felt completely off-course and didn’t know which way to turn in my career. Through a series of engaging and creative exercises we worked together to tackle the issues that were holding me back, clarify my career trajectory, focus my values and discover my leadership style.
In each session, Oliver always had an infectious, optimistic energy that helped make this such a rewarding experience for me and each time I felt energised to take the next steps in my journey. I’ve completed our time together with such a deep appreciation for what he does. My career has taken leaps and bounds, and I’m now armed with the techniques to help me grab each and every opportunity in a way that is most beneficial for me.
This is a well organized and helpful service. Marcie led me through an analysis of all my strengths, a visualisation of where I want to be, and gave me some great suggestions for improving my CV and interview skills to get there. I don't hesitate to recommend them!
I started coaching with SEVEN a few months ago and have found the experience extremely helpful. They paired me with the perfect coach, Jo, and not only do I feel more hopeful and energised after each session but I have also started taking active steps towards achieving my goals. Thank you for everything - money well spent! Jen
I really enjoyed working with Jo from Seven. I was looking for some help for increasing confidence and bringing passion to my working career and she was the appropriate person. The coaching process boosted my confidence with immediate results, allowing me to excel in presentations and formal conversations. I would definitely recommend her to anyone suffering from a true lack of confidence but willing to go forward with positive solutions.
Thanks a lot,
