Mindfulness + Kindness + Gratitude = Kindfulness

Live a more purposeful, happy & fulfilled life



The benefits of Kindfulness

Practising Kindfulness helps you live a more conscious life; one of action and response rather than indecision and reaction. 

Kindfulness helps you prioritise the importance of your own physical and mental wellbeing, enhancing your sense of balance, calm and resilience, which has a ripple effect on those around you. 


Kindfulness helps you recognise what's truly important and the awareness you develop results in building stronger connections; between your body, mind and breath, between yourself and others and with the world around you. This results in greater compassion towards yourself, others and the planet, helping you to feel more grateful -  and so the positive cycle continues. 

My Mission is to inform, inspire and empower people to lead happier, healthier and more conscious, connected and fulfilling lives, by creating a ripple effect of mindfulness, kindness and gratitude.

The Kindfulness Effect starts with you. 

Hello, I'm Melissa


I'm a passionate advocate of empowering people to lead healthier and happier lives, to raise their consciousness and to see how this not only benefits them, but also the people and the world around them. 

Having experienced the transformative effects of mindfulness in my own recovery from PTSD, I was inspired to study for a degree in psychology & philosophy and subsequently set up The Kindfulness Effect.

Prior to this I spent 15 years working in various management positions in a global company and after leaving my corporate career I qualified as an English Language Teacher. It was during my time as a teacher that I started sharing my ideas, knowledge and practices with students - this grew organically and so The Kindfulness Effect was born. 


My background in corporate management and education allows me to better understand, cater for and develop materials for the organisations I work with.

I am a fully qualified and accredited mindfulness, meditation, yoga teacher and coach.

Happy Clients

"There are lessons to be learnt in all sessions that are run by the Kindfulness Effect, and these can be used in every aspect of your life. They have helped keep me both physically and mentally fit during the pandemic, and I’m not sure I would have managed without them.

Melissa is a brilliant tutor. She is open and friendly, and always happy to have a little chat.

I would highly recommend any of her classes."
