"I don’t even know where to begin trying to explain Melanie Jolleys support towards me over the past few years, from helping me find jobs to signing me up for courses, taking me out for coffee and cake, amazing experiences like quad bike riding, surfing, rock climbing and the list goes on.

She has been the most supportive person and I don’t think I would be where I am today if she didn’t keep kicking my butt to do great things. She has the kindest soul and is amazing at her job, she wants everyone do their absolute best and she will do anything and everything to get you there. So grateful for all her support and to have had the pleasure of her being my counsellor over the years. Thank you so much for everything Mel x"

Mel is amazing and has such a relatable approach for young people.
