Hello, I’m Mel and I’m a certified Recovery Coach, have a Bachelor’s in Business, and am currently studying Counselling and Psychotherapy. I’m dedicated to helping women recover from unhealthy drinking cycles, build confidence, and feel more empowered in their everyday lives.
How? You might ask? Well, I believe by using a person-centered approach you can tap into a person’s subconscious and change any unhealthy cycle. Alcohol is just another habit that is possible to unlearn with the help of focus, commitment, and connection.
Why do I believe this? Because I did it! I used to be the party girl who went on bingeing benders. I had many nights of cloudy memories fuelled by liquid courage that were followed by mornings full of shame and brain-splitting hangovers. I was also the girl who needed men to love her even if it meant disregarding her body and continuously chasing the highs from toxic relationships. I have lived the lowest lows and the highest highs, and that life isn’t sustainable.
You have three choices in life: accept, leave, or change. I tried the first two and both ended in disaster. BUT, when I chose to take control and change my drinking habit, everything started to fall into place. My life was no longer chaos and I started to reap the incredible benefits of AF living which in turn became my superpower. This is why I do what I do because I am obsessed with helping women find their own superpower! I love seeing my clients take control, create opportunities in their lives and realise how important they are.
So, if you are serious about breaking your drinking cycles, book in a call and let’s have a chat. When I can understand your goals, past experiences, and your relationship with booze, we can create a tailored holistic recovery program.
I’ve been thinking about giving up, or at least having a break from, booze for years. One day I came across the INMIB Instagram and reached out to Mel. She told me about the INMIB AF program and I wasn’t really sure if it was for me or what to expect, but thought I’d give it a go. My biggest worry was staying committed while working full-time shift work as I’d often have a tipple to wind down, which is why the program gave me more than I ever thought it could. I learned valuable lessons about myself that not only helped me ditch alcohol, but also improved my mental health and self esteem – I couldn’t be more thankful. The group support was what really allowed me to realise I’m not alone in this. If you’re sober-curious like I was, then I cannot recommend INMIB enough. You may be surprised at how much you take away from it.
I loved the flow of the INMIB journey: discovering my values, getting down to the nitty gritty about why I established an unhealthy relationship with alcohol, learning how I can create new AF neural pathways, and so much more! Now I feel equipped with so many strategies to support my triggers, FOMO, and attending social events AF! INMIB has empowered me to change my narrative.
I walked away from Mel’s program with new daily habits that have been complete game changers. Getting to know my values and the science behind addiction has put a whole new spin on my sobriety that I didn’t have before. I loved connecting with an awesome group of people from all over Australia too! Highly recommend working with Mel, she makes recovery fun.
The INMIB course was informative and thought-provoking, which helped me build momentum in an alcohol-free life. It was also great to be held accountable and have support from the group. Mel was encouraging and easy to work with and I would definitely recommend.
The opportunity to be part of this group was amazing! I’ve learnt a bunch of great strategies I can apply to all areas of my life, not just drinking. It’s been awesome getting to know everyone and I feel pretty confident in saying I’ve made some lasting friendships here.
