Melody Cheal realised the importance of personal development when she began the journey of her own transformation before co-founding The GWiz Learning Partnership in 1993 with her husband and business partner, Joe Cheal.
She is now focused on putting her energy into her passion, unlocking potential in others by leading personal development workshops utilising her knowledge of psychology, NLP, TA and existential approaches. These. Workshops are now under the banner of GWiz NLP and the new website is http://www.gwiznlp.com
Melody has a Masters Degree in Applied Positive Psychology, a degree in Psychology and a diploma in Psychotherapy. She is an NLP Master Trainer which allows her to run NLP Practitioner, NLP Master Practitioner and NLP Trainer Training courses certified by the Positive School of Intrinsic Neuro-Linguistc Psychology.
As part of her Msc Melody undertook a research dissertation exploring how if at all NLP improves self-esteem and well-being. The results were statistically significant in support of this question. Her research has since been published in the International NLP Research Journal. She also presented her findings at the International NLP Conference in 2010.
She has used this research as a basis for her popular “Your Brilliant You” workshop and her Enough is Enough weight loss programme. Your Brilliant You is now incorporated in the two day 101 NLP workshop.

She is also a qualified Myers Briggs practitioner and EI practitioner and added to all this is five years Transactional Analysis training, meaning she is able to help organisations access the hidden potential in their staff. She is also in demand for her work in transforming average or even troubled teams into high performers.
Melody is passionate about developing people and one way she does this is by training and supervising coaches. The GWiz Learning Partnership is an accredited centre with the Institute of Leadership and Management. Every year a new cohort of ILM Level 7 Executive Coaches and Leadership Mentors are trained. As part of the on-going support all her students attend regular individual and group supervision sessions.
Melody’s interests are many and varied. She has a keen interest in personal development, canine and wolf psychology, conservation, movies and running. She also enjoys western horse riding, walking the GWiz dogs, nature watching and circuit training.
