With Love x

"Come home...

home to your body,

home to your deep knowing,

home to the fullness of all that you are..."

I draw on a wealth of training and experience to help you to:

  • move through pain and difficulty

  • connect with your emotions

  • 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.


Sensitive, powerful bodywork which meets you on all levels; mental, physical, emotional and spiritual...


"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."​

Mark Maddrell

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

For the past 15 years it has been my great privilege

to work with people from all walks of life,

to support them to transform and heal,

and become more at home in their bodies,

in themselves and in their lives.

I would love to work with you if you feel called to take the next step on your healing journey.

If you have any questions I am happy to talk with you.

Contact me today to book an appointment or to book a free half hour no-obligation consultation.

Our life's experiencre held in our bodies...

Our bodies hold the key to our healing...
