Mentoring

Hi beautiful!

Have you been wanting to:

  • Create the life you want now?
  • Learn how to listen to your body?
  • Have glowing clear skin and bright eyes?
  • Improve your eating habits and your relationship with food?
  • Understand your body and your cravings?
  • Find more time for ‘you’ and doing the things you love?
  • Overflow with confidene and self-esteem?
  • Experience more laughter, happiness and love in everyday life?
  • Learn to relax and distress?
  • Get in tune with how you’re really feeling?

Well, you have come to the right place.

I am a certified holistic health and life coach who helps women end their tortuous relationship with their bodies and fall head over heels in love with themselves and their life. All without calorie counting, deprivation or limitations. I make it fun and doable baby. That’s what it’s all about!

After years of modeling, acting, presenting and dancing at the Moulin Rouge in Paris, I battled my own body issues and would use drastic measures to stay thin. After getting sick in 2010 I realised I had to take back control of my health. Stop looking outside of myself for happiness and start to look within. I went on to study holistic nutrition, self-love, yoga, metaphysics and meditation. However, my most important and extensive training is my own life experiences. I now use practical and simple daily practices and techniques to stay well to create health and happiness and I want to share them with you gorgeous. (You can read my full story here)

I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, New York and have a vision to help you transform your relationship with yourself, shift your perception from fear to love and to live your biggest most radiant life possible.

When was the last time you got the support and advice you deserve?

I use to think getting support or asking for help was a sign of weakness but I want to let you in on a little secret, I wouldn’t be where I am today without my mentor’s, coachers, healers and teachers. They have all played a massive part in my journey and I am so grateful I reached out to them.

Now it’s your turn to get the support you deserve.

Sound good? Then my 6-month coaching program is for YOU!

The night I met Mel, I told her a story about how the universe had conspired to bring us together….I had been following Mel for some time via her blog and social media sites and saw that she was speaking at an event in Surry Hills. So I bought a ticket, thinking ‘I must see her speak’ although not knowing a single other speaker on the night! On the night of the talk, I realised I had a work event and was going to be running late and would probably miss the whole thing. So that morning on my way to work, I said a little prayer to the universe…. ‘somehow you’ll get me there!’ Sure enough I was running almost an hour late….and as I rushed into the room thinking I was sure to have missed Mel speak, she was handed the microphone! It was a sign from the universe that Mel was meant to come into my life!

From that night I knew that Mel would be a special influence on me.

Working with Mel through her coaching program has been an absolute joy! Her passion for health and wellbeing just radiates from within! Mel is an incredibly inspiring, capable and intuitive woman and I have learnt so much on our journey together. I will be forever grateful for the words of wisdom and encouragement that still echo in my head to this day. For anyone thinking about giving themselves a gift like this, I cannot recommend it highly enough! Mel’s program is so adaptable, whether you are just starting on your health and wellbeing journey, or if like me, you just needed a little push and some self belief!

Mel’s energy is truly infectious, and what I love most about Mel is how true to her passion and purpose she stays. This woman IS HER WORD, and absolutely practices what she preaches! I know for a fact that on Saturday nights she is sitting down to an organic meal and making bliss balls with her love Jamie, she is definitely not preaching ‘health living’ Monday-Friday for this girl it is 24/7!

Mel, I cannot thank you enough for putting me on the right path, encouraging me to take baby steps to achieve my dreams, and supporting me to live on purpose.

I came across Melissa by chance and will be forever grateful for her coaching program. When we first met I was worn out, sleep deprived, stressed, had bad skin and was never living in the present. After our first session I knew meeting Melissa would be life changing. She introduced me to meditation, showed me how to cook and add more clean foods into my lifestyle and helped me to let go of my “mean girl”. After every session I left feeling inspired and determined to make the changes that would turn my life around.

As a Makeup Artist, I was aware of all the toxic ingredients used in most cosmetic products, but never really thought twice about it. Melissa has educated me on the long term effects of these products and the importance of finding alternatives. I am now on a mission to find natural non-harmful products that still deliver results to add to my kit.

Since meeting Melissa I have so much energy, I am more present and mindful, sleep has improved dramatically, I am clearer and more focused and I truly feel on top of the world. She is honestly one of the kindest, most loving and inspiring people I have ever met. In 6 months she has helped me take control of my life and go from average to awesome!

Strap in because coaching with Melissa is one exciting ride. Dreams and aspirations that were way down inside of me and not even on my radar have flourished and made my life a better place.

Her positive, inspiring and loving nature make it impossible not to give yourself the time to heal from within and love yourself. From the beginning of coaching you are asked to identify what you want to achieve and I’ve done that and more. Towards the end of the coaching there were times when I wondered what she could teach me today because I felt I’d covered everything but she ALWAYS had new information and just kept prodding me along to be a better version of myself.

Mel helped me identify with my ‘mean girl’ and how to ignore her when she tries to take over at the most inconvenient times. She has introduced me to a wide range of literature and positive affirmations that have been invaluable to my life. During my coaching with Mel I have had to undergo two unexpected back surgeries and I don’t even like to think where my head space would be at if it had not been for her. She certainly came along at the right time for me and has been a true gift.

I also exercised like a maniac and jumped from diet to diet. Mel helped me establish new ways of checking in with myself and respecting my body. I don’t need to diet – I know everything I need to know and how to nourish my body correctly and what an amazing feeling that is. I had also been unsure whether to add to our family and where my career should progress and Mel has helped me map out a path I’m very excited about. She gave me the courage to invest in having an app made for exercising safely which after the past week of being released has received great feedback along with a local newspaper and television interview. She’s taught me to put things out there in the universe and trust it will work out. I have also enrolled in two study courses I was always debating and am loving learning new things and connecting with people. Life now is such an amazing feeling and experience and one we can all enjoy with a little help from Mel.

I completed the CLEO Body Challenge with Melissa and Christian Miranda at the beginning of this year. At the beginning of the challenge it seemed like a daunting and almost impossible task. But the more I spoke with Melissa the more I felt as if I deserved to be healthy. I’ve battled with obesity my whole life, but chatting with Mel weekly made me realise that it’s a struggle I can overcome. Through her eating plans, motivational emails and inspiring chats Mel helped me lose 15kgs. But more importantly she helped me change my relationship with food and exercise and showed me how I control everything in my life. Through the power of positive thinking she’s instilled confidence and motivation in me. And now I’m inspired enough to lose another 10! Thanks Mel, you’ve changed my life!

Where do I start? How can write in 1 single paragraph about a woman who has changed my life? Who has helped me, guided me and encouraged me to love who I am.

6 months ago, before contacting Melissa, I was at a really low point in my life. I hated who I was. I hated what I looked like. I was depressed, anxious and getting to the point where I was becoming burnt out. I was really nervous about our first Skype consolation (as I had never really had a life coach before and was very “green” to the whole wellness industry) but the moment I saw her beautiful smile on the computer screen, I instantly felt I was in good hands. From our first catch up to the very last, Melissa truly put her heart and soul into every session and helped me in a way that I don’t think anyone else could have. I looked forward to our fortnightly catch ups so much and absolutely loved every minute of them.

Melissa not only taught me about the importance of eating good quality organic food, she also taught me how to love myself again. Melissa has an incredible way about her that makes you feel at ease. Makes you feel relaxed. Makes you love yourself and most of all makes you feel happy.

I have been totally transformed by this wonderful human being. I am a better wife, a better daughter and a better friend all because of the wisdom and love she has shown me over the last 6 months. I have no hesitation in recommending Melissa’s 6 month coaching program to anyone. It was the best investment I have ever made. Not only to my health, but to myself and to my relationships.

I was really sad when our last session ended. I will miss our fortnightly sessions so very much and would like to take this opportunity to say a very BIG thank you to an amazing woman, who has showed me that life is beautiful. That everything is as it should be.

I randomly came to learn about Melissa through a beautiful quote she had posted on her Instagram, it was really quite bizarre how I was somehow drawn to her but as she said to me “we crossed paths for a reason” and boy I’m glad we did. Melissa has been such a positive influence on my life for the last 6 months. Before I met her I was in a job I hated, feeling very stressed, unhappy and unhealthy, feeling stuck and not knowing how to get out of my rut or negative headspace. I’d always been such a highly strung person but somehow Melissa managed to get me to slow down and stop worrying about the future or dwelling on the past and just enjoy the here and now. She taught me how to tackle my mean girl and treat myself like my own best friend, with love and respect…something I had never been able to do before. Now I am so much more calmer, less of a worrywart and a lot more confident and happy. I take much more time out for myself now and I never thought I would be someone who could sit still long enough to meditate or enjoy yoga but now they are two activities I have grown to love. I have Melissa to thank for my positive transformations and for making me feel strong, healthy and happy and live a great life.

Alana Scheikowski - Writer & Wellness Coach

The past 6 months with Melissa have been incredibly transformative. I don’t even know where to begin. Everything has changed. I came to her with terrible allergies (daily antihistamines for 20 years), bad skin, constant stomach pains, unstable moods and I was unhappy with where my career was going. She guided me to dig deep and discover what I really wanted and needed from life, then step by step, to take action to achieve those things. She is so insightful, so supportive, and so vibrantly healthy herself that you can’t help but feel in safe hands. Today, I am building a new career I am in love with (in fact, becoming a coach myself), my skin is clear and I no longer take allergy medication (total miracle). I believe in myself. I meditate daily. I am more present. I feel in control of my health and my future. I’m happy! I would recommend coaching with Melissa to EVERYONE!

 Elizabeth Connor - Consultant

Melissa Ambrosini was sent to me from angels. After having known her since playing with Barbies in her backyard, discovering 15 years later that she was a holistic health coach changed my life.

Not so long ago, life was toxic – I was burnt out from the inside out. It’s easy to blame that on some devastating life events, but Melissa helped me to realise that only my mind set was standing between a life of bliss and happiness. I’m not talking about the ultimate body, either. I’m talking about feeling peaceful, believing I was ‘good enough’ (if not better!), giving back a little love to myself and being grateful for the small things in life. Every minute of Melissa’s compassionate coaching sessions were a source of strength and filled with realisations on how to live life the way you wish to and be true to your own existence.

When your family comments on your change in energy, clearer skin and a sense of freedom, you know something has changed. I have Melissa to thank for these positive transformations – but she would always tell me that I created this. She has allowed me to thank every failure and success for the lessons they provide and the personal growth they deliver.

If you would like to believe that heaven exists on earth, hear from someone who has ‘been there’ themselves and be inspired to make a personal commitment to YOU, let Melissa guide you on your Path to Wellness. I have been blessed and continue to be each day- thank you Mel!

Lauryn Tinker – Model/Designer

I came to Melissa as an exhausted, overwhelmed and depleted being. I had adrenal fatigue, hormonal issues that resembled Hurricane Katrina, an almost completely diminished Self Love account along with a long list of other ailments. None of these issues were making any sense to me, as I had just gotten married to the most incredible man, a new job that had boundless potential and prospects, supportive family and gorgeous friends.

From the first meeting with Melissa, the heavy cloud and weight started to lift from around me. Her boundless energy and empathy mixed with that infectious smile ensure confidence, love and a path to fulfilment and happiness. With her program I have made my life into one of wholesome and nourishing living as well as restoring myself to a strong, healthy, glowing Goddess, who is confident and able to make my life the best it can be.  Melissa is truly sent from above and is a fantastic inspiration to the sisterhood!

Summah Provost – Student

Prior to signing up with Melissa I was a somewhat healthy young woman, but emotionally and mentally I had no positive thoughts for myself. I scheduled a call and fell in love very quickly, the compassion and enthusiasm flowed and signing up with Melissa was the BEST decision I have ever made for myself. I went from low self esteem and no self love to overflowing with joy and positivity.
Past traumas were banished, I was able to move on and begin a new journey without needing to replay the old story of victim over and over again. To have a positive mind, rather then a mind full of negativity, was always a goal and through working with Melissa I have achieved this! To say I sleep a good 7 hours a night is no small claim, I am thrilled that I now get a decent nights rest.
People are always asking, Why are you so happy and smiling all the time?? I can in all honesty say, that my self love and happiness were all results of excellent guidance from my Health Coach Melissa, and I would have no hesitation in recommending her 6 month Path To Wellness program. Those calls brighten up my day, and I eagerly look forward to the next one! I am very grateful to Melissa for guiding and motivating me on my journey. I am now studying to do what she does, as I have been inspired.
Thank you Melissa, and I highly recommend scheduling a chat with this wonderful woman and beginning your journey on your path to wellness.

Samantha Whaley – Actress

Melissa has been such a beautiful breath of fresh air for me. She has such an infectious warmth and energy that radiates and feeds you. Then comes her dedication and commitment to each individual. The biggest heart, open and beating not only for herself but for us all. Melissa has given me a different perspective, challenged my old patterns and beliefs, invigorated and excited me by showing me where my wings were all this time and guided me to fly, take that leap. Encouraging me to have the faith and belief and love within myself to embrace my journey, my story and live the moments. Not only have i gained knowledge about life, health and happiness but I have made and cherish a great friend.

Amanda Glover-Daley – Art Director/Health Coach

When I met Melissa it was like meeting a long lost sister. Her obsession with healthy living matched mine like no one I’d ever met. The thing was, she was glowing with health, and despite everything I knew and was doing, I certainly was not. Naturally, I had to find out why…

I was going crazy, constantly trying to figure out what food was causing me constant stomach pains, sugar cravings and such low energy that I literally snacked my way through the day to stay awake.

With Melissa’s loving and honest reflection, I quickly faced the truth that I was working in an unhealthy environment which was stressing my body more than any food I did or didn’t eat. With Melissa by my side I took the leap to start living the way I wanted to.

Six months later, I now work for myself, setting up my own Health Coaching practise as well as enjoying a healthy balance of Art Direction on my terms. Has this affected my health? Hell yes!! I’ve never had a stomach pain since, I sleep better than I have in years, and I’m just plain happy. To top it all off, I can now eat absolutely anything I want!!

If you’ve tried every dietary theory out there and still feeling terrible, Melissa will help you find your own unique Path to Wellness.

Rachel Blackman – Bikram Yoga Teacher 

“My name is Rachel and I am a 25 year old yoga teacher. I should be one of the healthiest people around! However, 6 months ago, I realised I was far from health. My skin was in terrible condition, I was constantly fatigued, experiencing anxiety attacks weekly and felt like I was just hanging on. I felt at conflict with myself as I was not living the health I was preaching on a daily basis to the students taking my class. I decided to turn over every rock until I found a solution to revitalise my health. I went searching and found the best rock I possibly could, and that was Melissa Ambrosini from Path To Wellness. Over the past 6 months, Melissa has helped me become more aware of what it means to me to be healthy. Her reliable support, continual encouragement, varied resources and contagious laugh, has made the discovery and journey a lot easier for me. I look forward to our sessions together, and always leave them feeling better about myself and motivated to achieve the goals we set together. My views and priorities have changed for the better, and I am very thankful to Melissa for helping me achieve that.”

Gemma Sykes – TV Presenter 

“Everyday I wake up and let the universe know what I’m grateful for and Miss Melissa Ambrosini has quite frequently popped up in that ritual. Since taking part in Melissa’s 6-month Path To Wellness Program my life has improved immensely. I have become a totally different person. My motivation and passion for life has returned without question. My sleep has improved and my skin is clearer. I jump out of bed with a hop and a skip excited for the day looking forward to a super green smoothie (which I didn’t know existed before Melissa’s Path To Wellness program). I’m learning what it is I love in life again and I couldn’t have done this without Melissa. My eating habits and general health have improved immensely due to Melissa’s amazing wide knowledge. But it has been her love, support and gentle guidance that has helped me to love myself again and this is priceless, so for that especially I will be eternally grateful. I’m extremely blessed to have Melissa in my life, she has shown me what unconditional love, support and kindness is. Melissa you are an angel on earth. Thank you for this experience.”

Jane Thorpe – Life Coach

“My life had transformed! I have just finished Melissa’s 6-month Path To Wellness program and from the second month I was already falling in love with healthy food choices and organic unprocessed options. This may sound completely normal however for someone such as myself with a life long sugar addiction and who always made poor food choices, this is nothing short of a miracle. Before this program I wasn’t able to walk into a shop without buying sugar and chocolate. It had controlled me for a very long time. I have never

been in this new space before and my skin, body and energy are amazing. I am on a constant level energy wise. No ups and downs and any negative thinking have dissipated. Simply making these adjustments to my way of life have transformed the ordinary into the extraordinary. Melissa you are amazing! Your gentle yet consistent encouragement has supported me to instill healthy habits and a whole new relationship with nutrition. I LOVE MY LIFE and my choices now. Thank you.”

Alina Berdichevsky – Lifestyle & Relationship Coach

“I came to see Melissa after an unsuccessful 3 year battle of trying to lose 5 meagre kilos. I was feeling a bit depressed by it all by then, as it seemed like what ever I was doing wasn’t working – even though I was following what I thought was conventional wisdom. I needed to get back in harmony with myself with an approach that focused on conscious eating even more than just ‘weight loss’ – and that is where Melissa came in. The whole 6 month journey was a blast – it was so great to be around Melissa’s wise and loving nature. She is always there when you need her – and is a walking example of what health, beauty and vitality should look like. She truly lives her principles every day, and you can feel that her tips and advice come from true integrity. As a result, I have finally adapted a totally new lifestyle. It wasn’t easy, but with Melissa’s support I now cook more, train better and eat what my body responds to best. The 5kg is gone and people constantly tell me that my skin looks amazing. What’s more, a newfound mental clarity and radiance is bringing in life and career opportunities daily that I haven’t expected!”

Rebecca Murphy – Actress

“Being coached by Melissa has dramatically changed my life. Before my 6 month Path To Wellness began I never exercised, lived of sugar, consumed copious amounts of coffee – my body was fueled by stress and bad food, I literally wouldn’t go a day without a chocolate.

I have battled with breakouts and hormone problems for several years and after finding out that I am intolerant to yeast, Melissa helped me develop a balanced diet and lifestyle program that works specifically for me. I saw results within weeks and what a difference it has made to my appearance and most importantly, my confidence.

Melissa has motivated me to exercise regularly (which I have grown to love), introduced me to meditation and has turned me into a self confessed food snob and label reader. After eating out for years on end I now favor staying at home with my friends where we love to prepare our own delicious, healthy food.

Anna Caon – Full time Muma

Melissa’s 6 month coaching program has been a blessing to my life. I went to Melissa with extremely low self worth, self esteem, sugar issues and anxiety, barely scraping by. Melissa treated me like she was my bestest friend, was so encouraging, optimistic, non judgemental and had such a loving energy about her. I looked forward to our meetings because I would feel on top of the world after them. She challenged my self limiting beliefs and truly made me see that I am worthy of love and I feel I love myself more and more every day because of her. Melissa has inspired me to be a health coach as well and I am now undertaking study at IIN. Thank you Melissa, you truly are the love and light of this world and an absolute angel

 Jo Kendall – The Positive Flow Foundation

I have been sitting here for a while now wondering how I can possibly explain in a simple paragraph how transformational my time was coaching with Melissa and being apart of her 6 month program. I can say that it was one of the very best things I could have ever gifted myself…. Mel is a gift to the world and working with her for 6 months undoubtedly changed mine. Although it never felt like work, right from the start it felt like I had a best friend, a sister, a guide, this amazing inspirational woman by my side continually letting me know that I could do it and her belief, support and love never waivered. The gratitude that I have for this beautiful woman and the amazing work that she does cannot be put into words, it is something that is felt in my heart. When I started with Mel i was jumbled and scrambled with my thoughts, beliefs and myself feeling like a mess. Mel helped me to look at that mess and clear it out… get rid of it… and not just the surface stuff but all the ‘stuff.’ I finished my 6 months having quit sugar (a HUGE deal for me) feeling physically amazing and emotionally clear and armed with tips and techniques to carry myself forward and live the life of my dreams. Mel helped me bring out my light, helped me stop playing small and step up!
I would like to express heartfelt gratitude to Mel, she really is an angel :)
