I am Melissa, a personal trainer with a difference.  I aim to work in a holistic way, considering both physical and mental wellbeing that will work for you.  I do not encourage extreme or drastic changes as they do not last long term.  I have years of experience in supporting people within the mental health sector in making changes.  I aim to use my psychology and nursing background, CBT and DBT techniques with fitness principles to support you in your journey to finding a balanced life.
