The Social Collective isn’t about networking. It’s about mutual heartfelt connection.
The Social Collective is about connecting, community and conversation. Personal growth and business growth. Big shifts and little leaps. A place to be inspired and encouraged. Seen and heard. And for you to feel fully supported and empowered to grow, bloom and transform at your own pace.
This is a membership community for women where we all work collectively together and get to the heart and soul of you and your business. You become part of a beloved community known, loved and supported for being you. And you extend your support and encouragement to the other collective members too.
It is an ancient tradition that women share their wisdom with each other, therefore we all learn from each other. We grow and celebrate our successes, there’s plenty of fun and laughter. Sometimes we have leaky eyes and cry together and it’s all perfectly OK, because this is a safe space. A social sanctuary where you are encouraged to show up in your entirety, as you really are. And talk about what’s really going on in your world.
This is the place where you can ask for and receive support and guidance specifically for you and your soul-led work.
As it's not just the how to's and business guidance we need. Sometimes we need to work on our mindsets to enable greater success. We need to peel back our layers of conditioning to uncover what is standing in our way and is ready to be released. We need to actively listen to others insights and wisdom as we know it’s this shared knowledge that might just be the guidance to help us move forward.
A sanctuary and safe space awaits within the Social Collective
We know that the people within the Social Collective can be trusted with our updates, trials and tribulations and will show up with oodles of support, love and encouragement as and when required. As well as big hugs in person.
These are our people, our tribe who love nothing more than celebrating our collective successes and magnificent achievements because we all know just how much time, energy and effort it has taken to get here. Collective insights and wisdom are powerful.
And so the Social Collective is a safe, trusted place where collectively we all benefit, learn, grow and transform ourselves and our petite businesses. You get all the practical tools and guidance you need for your own growth and transformation.
We don’t just talk about stuff. We are Encouragers for each other and receive mutual encouragement and trusted support in return.
We support each other to take aligned action so that you create and define success on your own terms.
You focus on your own intentions and priorities.
You discover the gaps that need your time and attention and let go and release what no longer works for you.
And you feel empowered to show up and do your best work with confidence, clarity and conviction.
Being part of the Social Collective is so much better than trying to do everything alone.
Because when you are surrounded with a group of soulful women something magical occurs. When you find the right group for you, one that feels uplifting and energising deeper connections are made. Relationships grow and flourish. You make friends. You belong. And finally you breathe a sigh of relief as you know you’re in the right place with the right people. Feeling fully seen, supported and strengthened by being part of a something special together.
Collectively we give an alternative perspective, which means you have someone you can trust to give you honest guidance and specific feedback to help you in your time of need. Or simply hold the space for you to figure stuff out. By being connected together online and off we are able to keep each other firmly on track. Accountable. Productive. Repeatedly able to take much needed action. And sane. That's very important.

In Person Meet Up’s
The in person meet up’s are held every six weeks at the Runnymede Hotel in Surrey this is a wonderful opportunity to connect more deeply in person, share your up-dates and have a nice day out. With a delicious lunch by the river. And cake if you fancy.
Together, collectively we grow, bloom and transform into everything we’re meant to be. And so much more.
Transforming your world does not have to be hard, extensive work, you don't have to make big momentous decisions or radically change everything in your life all at once. What you do need to do is make subtle tweaks and shifts, get to know yourself better, surround yourself with your trusted team of supporters and Encouragers and then take aligned action. When you’re clear on where you want to see growth, you have the power to transform your life and this is how you grow, bloom and transform.

Don’t just take my word for it here are some lovely testimonials
“I've worked with Melanie over a number years, she is my go to for my petite business when I'm in need of strategy, training, mentorship and practical things like social media and blogging 'how to'. I joined the Social Collective as I knew it would be something special and I didn't want to join a old lady type networking group!
Melanie has refreshing, heartfelt way of working and has a intuitive way of bringing out the absolute best in you and has helped my business to find and 'stay in its lane'. She has a deep understanding of what is needed with a small business and encourages you to be brave and do what makes you shine.
Melanie sees potential, encourages dreams and aspirations, and has opened my eyes and helped me realise where I want to be with my business and most importantly what I really want to be doing. Without Melanie, I would not be where I am today. I'm looking forward to continuing my work with Melanie and am excited to see what the future has in store. I wholeheartedly trust, value and highly recommend Melanie if you want to flourish and shine your light with your business - it will be everything you wished for.” Claire, Claire Bowring Make Up Artist
“I love being part of the Social Collective. It is a place of support and encouragement where you can safely share the highs and lows of being a petite business owner. Melanie has an amazing talent for helping you to articulate your thoughts and dreams. She is very perceptive – she just ‘gets’ people. She encourages you to embrace your challenges, step out of your comfort zone and instinctively sees how to bring out the best in you.” Jo Spencer, Chartered Insurance Broker Spencer Insurance
“The Social Collective is a bit like a wellbeing tonic for yourself and your business; comprised of organically grown wisdom, a healthy amount of encouragement, a good measure of counsel, a large dash of clarity and a fabulous sprinkling of friendship, fun and laughter. Melanie and her Social Collective is highly recommended. It could be one of the best decisions you make for you and your petite business.” Hayley Felton Soul Passion Healer, Artist, Soulpreneur
“I felt stuck and didn’t know where to turn before I found out about the Social Collective. I completely underestimated what Melanie was offering, and had imagined I was going to get clear on what I needed to do online to develop and promote my yoga teaching business so I would connect with individuals who would be a good fit for working together. I got to look at my life as a whole, in the round, and not just the business side. In this way I got clear and developed a plan for how to accomplish what I really wanted (which ended up being not what I’d expected).
The other women in the Collective have been lovely – I’ve felt very supported as I got clear about what I really wanted. That teaching yoga wasn’t what I really wanted to be doing! I am now focusing on teaching meditation as part of the Buddhist community with which I’ve been involved for many years – something I had done in the past but put on hold due to the busyness of work.
The Social Collective s is ideal for a small business owner who is driven by their values – a business with heart! Someone who is up for the journey and ready to look at what is working and not working in their life as a whole, not just their work. Someone who wants to delve deep and be part of a group of women who are supportive and open.” Kate Bacon, Yoga and Buddhism Teacher
