I wanted to do more work on my inner self, and in particular my vivid dreams. Before joining Melissa’s Dream Group I was feeling stuck in my life, career, relationship with my partner and my relationship with myself!
The dream circle was such a transformative experience. I am more aware on a daily basis of when feelings and thoughts arise in me and which ‘selves’ in me are interacting with others or my own self-talk. As a result I am feeling more confident to speak up for myself and clarify my needs in relation to others.
I am listening more to my inner messages and starting to TRUST IT! I feel more confident to makes changes and move onwards and upwards!
My creativity and confidence in my professional life has new life and I now have a way to relate to my fears without allowing the fear to hold me back.
If you are thinking of signing up for the Dream Workshops I say do so! Now!
The steps are clear, easy and non-threatening. Sharing in a circle is totally awesome and not hippy bullshit!
You will have to dance and move though, so get your shoes off and have fun!

I loved learning that dream elements are a part of me. It has made my dreams less scary. I’m not so fearful because I now know my dreams can be a tool to help me through issues. Through exploring Dream Work with Melissa and learning new skills I am being kinder to myself, embracing change in my life, and taking the time to check in with myself instead of pushing things aside. I feel more capable of helping myself.

My dream session with Melissa was a wonderful experience to take away in to my life. I got big insights into myself that show me how I can feel more satisfied at work. I feel like I have more power to speak up and not feel so worried about trying to make it all work on my own which has been very exhausting. I also understand why I have been having so much trouble with one particular person and why I get so angry with him- it’s actually about me and not about him at all! Unpacking the symbols and imagery in my dream gave me so many relevant insights into what is happening in my life and what changes I can make. C- Nurse.
I can feel my body healing deeply. The bodywork I’ve had with Melissa is different and definitely makes a difference to my wellbeing. This is so much more than just another massage.
The space Melissa creates is a much more calming environment and I feel like I can relax so deeply. A better experience overall because I feel soothed in my mind as well as my body. I don’t feel like anything is left out and head to toe I feel softer. My whole body becomes majorly relaxed.
I feel like the baby loves these treatments too. It is really interesting that the baby reacts when I am here. A really beautiful healing experience.

Melissa’s self exploration work I look forward to at least monthly. Her approach is very different to what I have experienced elsewhere. It goes much deeper. Melissa has helped me gain confidence and clarity to start my own business at long last. I have shifted so much fear and doubt that has held me back for most of my life. Every session with Melissa is another adventure.

You’ve stood beside me, and walked the path of bringing forth life with me twice over now. On those journeys together I have learned so much about myself, through you.
You’ve enabled me, and encouraged me to look beyond the fear of pain.
On the other side, truly is light. You rock my world.

I have seen Melissa blossom from a student with a keen interest in nutrition to a practitioner who has an enthusiasm and depth of knowledge for all aspects of health and healing and in particular to those related to children and childbirth. Melissa has a wonderful and warm caring nature whose presence lights the room and those around.
Melissa has a great intuitive side that knows the right thing to say or do at the appropriate time. She has a great appreciation of Mother Nature that also encompasses all forms of nurturing.
If you choose to share part of your life journey with Melissa you will feel embraced by warmth and genuine love as she helps you on your path.

Thank YOU Melissa for the amazing, nurturing and heart felt bodywork energy mixer! Wow you really got into those lil nook and crannies, my body feels more aligned and whole. Feeling emotions releasing that were stored from losing my dad. I didn’t realise till you were working on me that my back was like armor. Time for a sauna.:) Thanks again and look forward to connecting again soon…Many Blessings and Much LOVE! H- Mama, healer and raw food specialist.
When I first got the email inviting me to the classes my first thought was “Oh that’s totally NOT my thing”…but I challenged myself on that and wondered if it could help me learn how to be still and unbusy as I was feeling stuck as a ‘doing’ in the world instead of a ‘being’ in the world. I experienced such a transformation learning about my energetic presence and increasing my awareness about how I feel physically, emotionally, and energetically. I feel stronger and more grounded in myself. I have created more space in my life – my own space- internally and externally. I have more flow in my life too – I even brought on a menstruation (which had been dammed up for many months in my crazy busy work/study/family life) by releasing and flowing in class! I am letting go of the sense of urgency and fleetingness. That shiz ain’t real. Opportunities exist in every moment. – AFP Student
I am more grounded from this experience. I am definitely more confident and it is a big shift to not fear when attention is put on me. Before this I would want to run away or avoid in other ways having the attention on me because I was so uncomfortable. Melissa makes the classes an especially safe place to be. I feel very energised after each one. Even if I arrive in tears, I leave with a deeper awareness of how I feel in any moment and of being ok with it. I feel connected to my intrinsic ok-ness. – AFP student
Go, go, go! If you want to celebrate you as a woman and fall in love with yourself, go see Melissa! – AFP student
I feel more grounded in myself as a woman and confident that I can be extremely powerful whilst remaining in my feminine. I DO live love. My opinion of myself and my value has consolidated and solidified through Art of Feminine Presence classes with Melissa. – AFP student.
I thoroughly enjoyed gaining an awareness of my womb space, a part shut out and totally unaware of the importance it plays in me enjoying life and guiding me in so many ways. I was surprised at how important it is for me to connect emotionally in a safe space being me no matter where I am on the emotional scale. I have a better awareness of my emotions and how it manifests in my body. I have long struggled with my ability to receive attention, help, or appreciation and felt very supported in shifting this pattern. Melissa’s circles are the best. A warm, safe, and challenging environment to reflect and grow to be the best you can be! – AFP student
I came to Melissa’s Art of Feminine Presence classes because I was interested in exploring aspects of the feminine. I also wanted to make space for exploring and celebrating myself. I have multiple outside demands on me and was wanting time to myself. The most awareness shifting part of this work was learning about my ‘energy bubble’ and how to use it. As a result of these classes I feel more self love and respect for my own personal space- physically, emotionally, and energetically. I am feeling more trust and safety in my body regarding my upcoming birth. I have more body/energy awareness and how to use my energetic space. I am feeling happier, enlightened and in control of my emotional and physical space. – AFP student.
I could easily spend more time in meditation just for the pure enjoyment! – AFP student.
