Choices

Life doesn’t happen to us.   Life presents us with opportunities, insights and gifts.   We have the choice of what to do with them. Many of us have the same things ‘happen’ to us and yet each of us

Good and Bad days

No day is emotionally stagnant . We all go through amazing emotions in a day, hour or minute and yet we only notice the ‘bad ‘ones.  That then is how we classify the entire day. The one emotion that came

TESTIMONIALS (read more here)

To say the Enneagram teachings and Melitta changed my life, and the way I think/thought, would be an understatement.

Melitta’s guidance, and mentorship over the last 3 years has transformed me to my core.

Candice Macdougall, Complement Recruitment

I started the enneagram course with her over eight weeks. The enneagram was a real game changer for me. Melitta is a wonderful person with a world full of knowledge and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to journey on a path of bettering themselves. She is a real gem!

Working with Melitta has been life changing. I have been working with Melitta for 3 years and she has given me the tools and insights and techniques to make some radical shifts in my life to become a more balanced, centered and empowered version of myself.

She has constantly provided me with love and support throughout our journey and work through my dark side and down times.

I love Melitta and our weekly check in sessions.

Enneagram

It took me 42 years to realize that there are other people who think, act and react the same way as I do. 

PNI

The complexities of both, good and bad life experiences, that shape me, are gently unraveled in these deeply insightful and often necessarily painful, private sessions.

Melitta you unfolded this for me. With gratitude and Kind regards

Michele Jünger

Prior to meeting Melitta, I had faced 15 years of paralysing depression and anxiety. Over the years, I saw a series of doctors, psychologists and therapists — at times there was some relief but I never felt that I was getting to the “heart of the matter”. All this changed when I was fortunate enough to meet Melitta.  The investment I made in my time with Melitta could just be the best investment in myself to date. Melitta is a superstar and comes highly recommended.

ABOUT MELITTA

Melitta Wessels_Effective_Life

I was privileged to grow up with a very forward thinking intelligent mother and an inquisitive and questioning father both of whom encouraged me to question and explore what I ‘knew’.

I completed a nursing degree as I always knew that I wanted people to live to their full potential. I realized early on in my training that there was a fundamental missing link.

At no time was the entire person being treated (head, heart and body), even in psychology it was only a part of the person being attended to. I could also feel when I was listening to people that I had answers for them, ideas to try, a deeper understanding of what they were saying and yet my profession prevented me from expressing it and so I felt the person / patient received only part of the treatment required.

When I was qualified I started taking my learning a lot further, seeing proof of what I knew all around me in different healing modalities.

It became really obvious to me that above all else each person is unique, with different thought patterns, different ways of analyzing information, and different ways of expressing emotions. Not solely based on their upbringing, their culture, their religious beliefs or the events and situations which had impacted on their lives. This was such an “A-ha” moment; it then became my driving force.

We all react differently to similar situations because we are all unique. PNI teaching reinforced this. It is not the story but our reaction to the story which determines the effect on our lives.. The Sedona Method is the same theme. Wayne Dyer has the same theme. Louise Hayes has the same theme, and many more.

How am I unique?

I endeavour to combine, adjust and adapt all the teaching with my own knowing and impart that as an empowering unique individual tool to my clients.

The Enneagram gave me fantastic guidelines into this uniqueness. Taking the teaching  a step further, all types are also not the same, we are unique within our type. I studied Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Reiki, Auric Healing, and any other complimentary modality I could lay my hands on. They all proved what we know inside ourselves.

‘We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be?

The big light that shone on my path was from an Aroma therapist / Reflexologist / Mentor / Guru / Holistic Therapist, who, after my parents were killed in an accident said to me:

“You have all the medical; technical and intellectual information you need, and your strongest asset is your intuition. There are things you know, and it is your responsibility to make that available to others”

So my practical journey began. I had to start ’walking my talk’ helping people to

  • Inspire themselves
  • To achieve what they knew they could, but weren’t recognizing their abilities and gifts.

I never forget the value of medicine; I never forget the value of our upbringing or our belief systems.

I have no desire to change anyone I only know I can help you empower and understand yourself to live an effective life which equates to success, happiness, good relationships, good parenting and personal growth

Many times we feel that we need help but  are not necessarily non functional so we put ourselves aside and press on which eventually leads to overwhelming stress and ill health where medication seems the only answer.

We owe it to ourselves to seek  guidance, coping skills and lifestyle techniques while we are still healthy.

We are entitled to see our unique gifts and talents and how to use them.

ENNEAGRAM

The Enneagram can be defined as a map of the human psyche.

It unfolds how unique we all are, how differently we gather and sort information, how uniquely we react to varied mental and emotional stressors/stimuli.

What the Enneagram gives you:

  1. An understanding of exactly what makes you tick, what motivates you and what unravels/triggers you
  2. Use this knowledge to make significant shifts in your mindset and relationships
  3. Live Effectively

QUALIFICATIONS AND CAREER

Having completed my Medical Training in 1978 and continued with a Post Graduate Degree in Industrial Medicine. I worked in this capacity for 3 years. The job involved more personal motivation and psychological problem solving with staff members than nursing duties.

My involvement in Social upliftment and conflict management of factory workers, blue collar staff and management, resulted in working closely with Doctors, Social Workers, Medical Aids and Healthcare Institutions, Psychologists and Psychiatrists as well as Human Resources.

This environment brought me to the realization again that I needed to pursue my interest in the treatment of the unabridged person and other complimentary health options.

I spent the next 6 years studying, attending workshops and courses to increase my qualifications and knowledge while working for World Book as a Regional Manager. This provided valuable experience in Human Behaviour & Commerce.

Having two daughters and a successful marriage taught me many lessons along the way.

I have owned and managed a retail store for 14 years as well as my Effective Life practice.

I develop and  run Enneagram workshops, team building sessions and see individual private clients daily.

Recently the Skype coaching has taken my special talents global with clients in Australia, Germany and Bangkok.

Other Qualifications and Certifications Include

  • F.A.M.S.A Counselling Course

  • Advanced First Aid Course

  • Auric Healing Course

  • Accredited Bach Flower Remedy Advisor

  • Certified Tissue salt advisor

  • Qualified Psycho Neuro-Immunology Facilitator

  • Enneagram facilitator and profiler
