Hi, I’m Melanie.
Thank you for taking the time to visit.
After years of developing my coaching, leadership and psychological skills in the public sector, corporate environments and both retail and hospitality, I have become a well-rounded and successful Coaching Psychologist.
While I love being a Psychologist, my passion for the coaching arena has been where I truly thrive.
I am a champion of Positive Psychology and some time ago decided to move from a clinical/counselling Psychology focus toward a specialisation in Positive Psychology Coaching.
All my experience has made me a down to earth and understanding practitioner. I suppose the ten years I spent with Forensic Clients in a Correctional environment, has undoubtedly afforded me with the unique ability make even the most hesitant clients feel at ease.
I believe that EVERY client has the opportunity to live a life that is characterised by wellness, rather than illness. And with this in mind, I take care to ensure that my work is always based on the needs of the client, solution-focused and characterised by authenticity, humour, generosity, kindness and accountability.Some of my clients might tell you that I’m a bit of a butt kicker when you need it, but that I also have an innate ability to know when you need a safe place to be heard and supported.
Making people’s lives better is my personal and professional mission. There is no greater reward than watching my clients not need my services anymore.
If you have come and had a look at our site, is it because
- Your personal life feels a bit meh, and you are looking renewed motivation or clarity?
- You might need to navigate a business issue that requires some strategic and emotional support?
- Or maybe, you are just feeling overwhelmed, stressed and can’t think clearly?
I get it.
Sometimes all it takes is someone with the skills, knowledge and empathy to help you see through all the fog and get you back to feeling happy, calm and confident.
I am here to help you create a happier and more fulfilling life.
And who knows we may have some fun while we do it.
