Melanie has been in the counselling field for the last 10 years and is passionate about self-empowerment and inner freedom. Her area of expertise focuses on helping her clients build up personal power, confidence, inner authority and self-esteem to overcome past trauma and become the strongest and most loving version of themselves. She uses a holistic approach that focuses on three levels: body (physical), emotional (feelings) and mental (thought processes). She has spent over 20 years researching, training and developing techniques that speed up the process of inner change and makes it exciting, rather than scary and daunting. Her approach is unique in that she incorporates belly dance and snake charming – that is, the art of dancing with snakes- as part of the therapeutic process in letting go and connecting to the divine dancing dakini within.
Alongside her therapeutic practice, Melanie Philippides is an established dancer and has been belly dancing and snake charming in clubs, festivals and conventions across the UK. She believes dancing is a powerful feminine energy that can be used to support and accelerate the journey of change and inner transformation.
Melanie is also the #1 bestselling author of “Becoming Fearless: a Guide for Enhancing Self-Empowerment and Taking Charge of your Life”, available on amazon in paperback or kindle.
