Finding my happy
Melanie Meik -DIP.HYP.GNHQ
Clinical Hypnotherapist, and EFT Practitioner
For as long as I can remember, I have been my very own life coach, I guess I just didn't know that’s what it was at the time. I grew up in a small town and always had dreams and ideas that were different to others around me, I always somehow felt different and like I needed to see more, do more, experience more and that there must be more to life over the not so metaphorical hill that lead out of our town.
I have worked my way through and up several career ladders, I once proudly had my CV described as "phantasmagorical" - “as something in a dream or created by the imagination” This is exactly how I have created my life. Following dreams, having visions and imagining great things, following them though to manifestation.
I have travelled, lived and worked in different countries and met some incredible people along the way. I have learned some valuable lessons and grown through each challenge and adventure, even the failures which at times have taught me the most.
I have enjoyed the extreme highs of life and also endured some of the lowest of lows, overcoming stressful times and personal challenges through positive thinking and healing therapy.
I have worked for Her Majesty's Courts Service, been an overseas travel guide, a singer and dancer as part of a professional entertainments team. I worked for many years as a freelance make up artist, enjoying travel and working in TV and film in the UK and Europe and I have worked in the bridal industry buying and selling wedding dresses, finding brides their dream dress and making them feel incredible on their special day, by being not only the make up and hair artist but also a voice of calm in the bridal suite. I have managed teams in hotels. hospitality, fundraising and marketing in the UK, and the Bahamas, I have also worked within the luxury golf industry in various parts of the USA.
My passion for people directed me to working in therapy, offering others the opportunity to be listened to, without judgement and in turn potentially better understand themselves and achieve their goals and desires in life. I enjoy motivating others to achieve their goals and to heal through person centred therapy. Having taken a short counselling course I decided to train as a hypnotherapist and take a life coaching accreditation and will be studying a degree in Psychotherapy in 2021.
I have achieved my accreditation for Clinical Hypnotherapy with Innervisions and as such am a registered practitioner with the GHR (General Hypnotherapy Register) and I am an accredited practitioner with the GHSC (General Hypnotherapy Standards Council) insured and regulated to practice as a Clinical Hypnotherapist.
I am excited to meet you, as we work together. I can help you to drive towards your goals, towards the way that you want to feel and away from your fears and unwanted feelings.
