Let me empower you to achieve more of what really matters in life minus the BS and burnout! 

Specialising in

Wellbeing + Leadership


My super power is helping people cut through the “noise” and “clutter” of our busy modern world and to develop a “balance toolkit” that shifts them from surviving to thriving. You are not just here to suffer in this game called life! Let me share with you my simple and effective strategies to empower you to achieve more of what really matters.


I specialise in facilitating workshops & lunch ‘n learns for organisations and leaders on stress management, elevating energy, mood & mindset, work/life balance, vision/values & goal setting. I have a special interest in empowering women to embrace the inspired, and inspiring, leader within and supporting schools to develop the vision & leadership capability of young leaders. 

My Approach

I help employees and teams cut through the “noise” and “clutter” of our busy modern world and to develop a “balance toolkit” that shifts them from surviving to THRIVING. 

As someone who has journeyed from corporate burn-out to improved health and vitality, joy and life balance, I am passionate about reminding people they are not just here to suck air and suffer in this game called life!

With 23 years coaching and leading teams in the NSW State Government and as a certified life coach, I love sharing simple and effective strategies to empower others to achieve more of what REALLY matters minus the BS and burnout! 

Whether presenting to teams, teachers or students or coaching one on one, I compassionately support people to understand how to better connect with themselves and others. Providing them with the tools to manage their own energy, mood and mindset and productivity so they can show up in life, school or work- as the healthiest, happiest and best version of themselves.

I believe when people feel connected to their most empowered, confident self, it inspires innovation, peak performance and greater engagement which has a positive ripple effect on the whole organisation. 

I’m skilled in helping individuals and teams to create more joy, connection, resilience and purpose in their lives and work “families. This includes helping create HIGH PERFORMING TEAMS through shared vision, values, goal setting and accountability.

I am passionate about creating positive experiences that challenge, inspire and empower people to awaken their potential, harness grit, determination and resilience in times of challenge or change and to optimise the way they show up in their life, relationships and career.

Personal Coaching

“Mel is an amazing and motivating life coach. Mel knew exactly how I was feeling and gave me real, practical and helpful tools and activities to help with things such as depression, anxiety, rebuilding relationships etc. She has helped me to see life more positively and help me overcome many struggles I have dealt with. She has such a calming and easy-going nature about her that you instantly feel at peace and connected to her approach.”

Lindsey, Recruitment Consultant

“Mel exudes a genuine passion to help people from all backgrounds and she is always there to help. I like Mel’s way of coaching because it is a combination of positive psychology, mindfulness and creative visualization. I have never had the results I am experiencing now and I am truly blown away by the transformations that are occurring.”
