Reflexology and Mindfulness Practitioner

Melanie Sheppard

Qualifications: Adult Nursing Dip HE. Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology. Teacher training Diploma in Mindfulness, relaxation and meditation. Melanie is also a member of the Association of Reflexologists.

Melanie qualified as a registered nurse, working in rehabilitation, acute medicine, going on to develop a passion for end of life care, and to work at a local hospice. Through working with people and having an interest in personal development Melanie developed her experience, knowledge and understanding of what it means to ‘live well’ and made the decision to develop further by qualifying as a reflexologist therapist, specialising in supporting individuals affected by cancer, either directly or indirectly. Melanie introduced mindfulness, relaxation and meditation into her practice and saw how simple practices enhanced people’s experience of life, lessened anxiety and improved relationship with self. Melanie went on to qualify as a mindfulness, relaxation and meditation instructor and now runs a 6 week mindfulness, relaxation and meditation course alongside her reflexology practice.

Melanie is a practicing therapist for the charity Chichester based Cancerwise and also works as a therapist for the support charity Penny Brohn UK, working at a private radiotherapy unit.

At the WOW clinic Melanie provides reflexology therapy sessions. She also offers mindfulness, relaxation and meditation 1:1 sessions as well as facilitating her 6 week Mindfulness, relaxation and meditation course.

Outside of the clinic you will find Melanie in her wellington boots or walking shoes, walking around Chichester Marina and Salterns Way, or on the Downs, or Slindon woods or some other glorious place, with her chocolate Labrador Sid, counting her many blessings!
