Hi! I am Mel. 

I am a life coach, hypnotherapist, and Neuro-linguistic programmer… And a bit of a personal development junky 😀

At Wild Spirit Rising we are passionate about empowering people and helping them find self-love, confidence, and courage to live authentically. Releasing depression, anxiety, stress and limiting believes. We offer Retreats, Tours, Workshops, and one-on-one life coaching, making it accessible to all budgets and time restrictions. 

If you want to be the best version yourself and enjoy the journey, you have come to the right place 🙂

I grew up thinking that what we are supposed do in life is: get a good job, find someone we love, marry, settle down, buy a house, and have children, and THEN we will be happy. When we realise that we have ticked everything off, but still aren’t happy, we keep adding to the list. When I go on vacation I’ll be happy, when I have this or that then I’ll be happy. 

Until I all of these things but my life was dull and meaningless. I enjoyed my job but it didn’t fulfilled me. I loved my husband but there was no passion. I was living in a beautiful home but I was wasting my life away watching Netflix and scrolling through social media. I had everything I had dreamt of, everything society sees as “having a good life”. And I was miserable.

For a long time I was just numb. Nothing was good or bad. Everything was just meh… I was stuck in this life and a routine that was slowly killing me. It had just crept in. At first I was unaware of it. After one year of being like this, I finally realised. I then started wondering: “What is wrong with me? Why am I not happy? Is this all there is to life?” I felt stuck, trapped, unhappy, unfulfilled, lost, and I was beating myself up over it. I didn’t know who I was or what I wanted out of life. 

I finally came to terms with the fact that I didn’t want this life, this wasn’t whom I wanted to be. I still didn’t know exactly what I wanted but I knew what I didn’t want. I was craving freedom, I needed to know myself, find out what my values were, and be be authentic and aligned with this. It was very difficult to accept this and walk away from this life that was comfortable and that I knew and to step into the unknown. I was scared, but I did it anyway. Because the thought of staying where I was and live a lie, feeling dead on the inside, was far worse than the fear of exploring the unknown. 

And so I began my journey of personal development and growth. In the midsts of trying to find a way to heal myself I found NLP and hypnotherapy and many other modalities that all helped me, and with it my passion for helping others. I have always considered myself to be a very caring and empathetic person, always lending an ear or a hand for anyone that needs it. I realised how many  people were out there, suffering, like I had, from depression, anxiety, fear, self doubt, worry, or simply unhappy with the life they are living. 

Neuro-Linguistic programming is a straight forward approach where we use the power of language and the mind to reprogram our brains. Creating new pathways in our brain, getting rid of past programmes that no longer serve us and thus achieving our desired outcomes. 

When I saw the power of NLP first hand, and the changes it can make in people, I knew that this was my path! This was what I was put on this planet for! And so, I had discovered my mission. I am here to help people let go of what no longer serves them and find their purpose and happiness within.
