Real support through
times of transition so you can
come out the other side
feeling empowered, alive & aligned


I'm Melanie; a bodyworker, Shadow Work coach and group facilitator. I specialise in supporting people through times of big transition, such as bereavement, relationship breakdown, career changes and menopause.

Major transitions in life can sometimes seem to knock us off our path, leaving us feeling lost or just 'not quite ourselves'...

I believe that, with the right support, times of transition can be embraced as 'rites of passage'; an opportunity to be 're-born' with a deeper understanding of ourselves and a new sense of purpose, passion and appetite for life.

Reaching Out to the Sun

I work with clients in person and online, drawing on a wealth of training and experience to help you to:

  • move through pain and difficulty

  • connect with your emotions

  • release trauma held in the body

  • heal emotional wounds from the past 

  • find freedom from the patterns that hold you back

  • find greater ease and self acceptance

  • reconnect with the inner resources that give you the power to heal yourself and transform your life...

My work is informed by the tools and approaches that have benefited me the most on my own healing journey and that I have found most helpful in my work with clients over the years.

My coaching style is holistic, therapeutic, body-focused & effective. Together we can uncover what holds you back and heal it at the core so you can move forward with freedom...


"The help you have given me is enormous...

I am truly coming into my own... a transformation so great I would not have believed it possible."​

What my clients say


"Melanie’s presence is gentle, but solid and strong at the same time. She’s open and non-judgemental and works creatively which I really like... Melanie has allowed me to feel safe enough to be open and honest and I felt very supported by her.”


"Through [Melanie's] acknowledgement and acceptance I've been able to open doors within me that I've been in fear of for years. Now I know more of myself than before [and] am more able to accept and even love the woman that I am."

Terry Bruce, Yoga Teacher

“The help you have given me is enormous and works on at least four levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. I am truly coming into my own; becoming more of who I am and feel happier and more nourished in places that I thought would always be sad and empty. I am, and will always be, hugely grateful to you.”

Mark Maddrell

and become more at home in their bodies,

in themselves and in their lives.
