Coach and Therapist 

I am a Coach and Therapist with an extensive background in maternal and infant health. With a lifetime of experience as a Specialist Nurse, Yoga Teacher, Coach, EFT practitioner, breath work teacher and Clinical Hypnotherapist, I offer a variety of ways to support you in a trauma informed way. I offer Coaching and Therapy to support emotional well being and resilience for parents in pregnancy, parenthood and beyond. 

Perinatal refers to the time from conception to the first year or two postnatally. I support parents at various stages of the perinatal period and often people who have long passed through the 'perinatal period'. Coaching and Therapy to support emotional well being is unique to you and your experiences. People come to see me for various reasons including the following: Miscarriage Baby loss Challenges of fertility journey Experiences of a baby in NICU (neonatal intensive care) Traumatic Birth experience Witnessing a traumatic birth experience as a professional or partner Postnatal depression  Baby feeding issues Baby illness Preparation for a pregnancy or birth Lost sense of self becoming a parent Low confidence as a mother or father Anxiety Low mood Intrusive thoughts Stress and overwhelm Poor coping skills including addictoive patterns or behaviours

Talking Therapy 
This is much more than 'a problem shared is a problem halved'. I work with you to share what weighs heavy on your heart. Working from a place of compassion to support you experience clarity and relief from emotional struggles associated with your experiences. I believe in the power of experiencing safety and this is central to the relationship we will build - short term or longer term - confidentiality is key.

what clients say... 
I am so grateful to have met Melanie I was losing hope and confused about what was happening to me. When I met her I felt instant relief – at last someone understood what I had been going through for the last 5 years since the birth of my youngest son. 
About Melanie 
I am a Coach and Therapist, Specialist Nurse, a Teacher and Clinical Hypnotherapist. I have extensively studied therapies supporting emotional well being of the mind, body and spirit. I specialise in supporting parents recover and heal from a difficult or traumatic birth experience. With a wealth of experience both professionally and personally in the field of trauma, I live and breathe a life of self development with resilience and passion.  
As a mother to 4 children, I am very aware that often there is a big gap between the theory and the real life experiences of birth and early parenthood. My deepest passion is supporting positive experiences between mother and baby from conception to the early years. The time of pregnancy, birth and beyond overflows with intense emotions from ecstasy to despair- and sometimes all in the one day! All of my work and offerings are heart centred and intuitive.
