I’m Melissa – a naturopath, nutritional therapist and coach based in Melbourne, Australia, serving people all over the world through the power of the marvellous internet!
I show people like you who are feeling tired all the time (alongside other niggling health symptoms), how to reclaim their energy and well-being so they get their lives back.
You can feel vibrant and energetic no matter what your age. It’s all a matter of doing what’s right for you and your body in order to thrive.
And I’d love to show you how.
What’s making you feel so tired and unwell all the time?
Feeling tired all the time often presents alongside symptoms like unexplainable weight gain, brain fog, low mood, poor skin health, PMS and loss of resilience (e.g. everything overwhelms you these days). You might’ve been to your doctor and had blood tests that come back normal, leaving you to wonder what’s going on!
There are many causes of fatigue (and associated symptoms), and it can be tricky to pinpoint on your own.
I’d love to help you solve your mystery and determine what your fatigue factors are.
The first step is to book a mini consult with me. In this 20 minute session, we’ll chat about your health, and I’ll recommended the best course of action for you.

I now have a huge portion of my social life back, and an ease to eating, cooking and sharing times with friends and family.
I came to Melissa with fatigue, anxiety and stress related IBS. I used to sit in a restaurant not knowing what I could eat without pain. My symptoms improved over such a short amount of time. I now have a huge portion of my social life back and an ease to eating, cooking and sharing time with friends and family.
I always felt comfortable telling Melissa anything, even personal things in my life that were causing anxiety. She always dealt with my issues with seriousness and patience, always being professional yet also like a friend. Every session was a pleasure. She always provided me with options and let me try methods and suggestions at my own pace and choice. I’d recommend Melissa as her approach is so thorough that she gets to the root cause of a health problem, and treats her clients with respect and kindness. Thanks Melissa – you’re fab!
Whenever I feel below par she is the first person I go to.
I first went to see Melissa when I was feeling completely exhausted and just couldn’t seem to pick myself up again. Melissa was gentle and thorough in her approach, and I felt really supported at a difficult time. She made sure I understood her recommendations, and I immediately felt I was in good hands.
Over the next few months, I adapted my diet and lifestyle and took the supplements she recommended, and very quickly felt a lot stronger, better rested after sleep and was happier in myself. What a difference! Whenever I feel below par she is the first person I go to, and she always has something helpful to say!
I was so impressed I recommended 3 members of my family to see her.
I was blown away by the support and detailed advice Melissa gave me. She spent time to fully understand my individual health needs and gave me targeted advice, taking into account my cultural and religious restrictions.
Melissa’s health plan for me improved my fatigue, asthma and eczema in a short period of time, and had the pleasant side effect of losing a couple of kilos! I was so impressed I recommended 3 members of my family to see her.
My story: I know exhaustion well…
I’ve been there and got the blood-sweat-and-tears soaked t-shirt!
Heard of the ‘C Lifestyle’? It consists of refined carbs, chocolate, coffee, champagne, cigarettes and a hearty daily dose of destructive self-criticism. I was an exhausted ball of stress and a hardcore perfectionist to boot. I worked myself to the bone, left no time to care for myself and bee-lined my way to exhaustion at age 26.
After getting close to burnout for a second time a few years later, I decided to make some big life changes so I could feel energised, healthy and sane! I was so sick of feeling tired all the time. Since then, I’ve been studying the dynamics of fatigue and health, and trained as a naturopath, nutritional therapist and transformational nutrition coach to discover what it takes to feel truly energised.
I thought nutrition and sleep would solve my fatigue…
Yet that was only the starting point! Not only how you eat, but how well your body absorbs nutrients, the level of toxins in your body, plus how you think, feel and show up in the world all contribute to how energised you feel. This is why my approach uses naturopathy, nutritional therapy, detoxification, positive psychology, mindfulness and lifestyle strategies to help people have the energy they need to keep up with the demands of modern life.
My mission is to help you feel energised, healthy and happy so you can enjoy life on your terms (rather than exhaustion’s!).
Feeling tired all the time is no way to live… You can live that precious life of yours in the way you dream of, rather than the life you’re living because you’re so bloody exhausted.
That’s what I want for you. And you so deserve the energy to create that!
PS: It lights me up when people tell me how much more energy and life they feel inside after working with me! I hope one day soon, that will be you!
