I'm Melanie Appleyard. I'm an Emotional Wellbeing Coach, Angelic Reiki Master/Teacher, and Meditation Facilitator, who facilitates social, emotional, and spiritual growth and transformation in adults and children, who desire to feel happier, confident, and more connected.
I am a huge animal lover, who is passionate about improving mental health and emotional well-being, which I believe are the keys to good health and happiness.
Check out my services to see how I can help you and your family (including your furry friends) improve your lives, address emotional imbalances and improve your relationships.
I'm a mum to two wonderful, neurodiverse young adults and two crazy furbabies. My background includes 17 years of experience as a teacher, supporting the social and emotional well-being of children. This has been developed by undertaking postgraduate courses in Personal, Social, and Health Education (PSHE) and Special Educational Needs Coordination.
My role has involved identifying, teaching and planning support to develop the emotional well-being of neurodiverse children and those who struggle with social, emotional, and mental health difficulties. It’s involved helping to develop relationship-building skills with children who struggle to form and maintain friendships. It’s also involved helping those who struggle to recognize and manage their emotions to develop skills in these areas.
As someone who suffered from childhood anxiety myself, I am absolutely passionate about teaching children these skills from a young age.
My own critical illness gave me a deeper, more personal insight into the importance of emotional well-being and my recovery was aided by self-care techniques. These included Reiki, meditation, good nutrition, a positive mindset, a supportive husband and family and my super dog, Daisy, who taught me loads. This led me onto another path as a holistic therapist and Angelic Reiki Master/Teacher. I also rediscovered my love of crystals, energy work, and other fascinating spiritual subjects.
