"I HAVE STEPPED AWAY WITH NEW CLARITY, HEALING AND OPEN TO NEW IDEAS"
“The beauty of The Velvet Chair and Melanie’s work as a mystic healer is that it offers me a nurturing and caring space to look at life from a different perspective. Melanie has the innate ability to connect, understand, problem solve and share. Every time I have stepped away from The Velvet Chair I feel like I have stepped away with new clarity, healing and that my mind has been opened to new ideas”.
Marilyn Rose Veil - Beauty Therapist
"MEL HAS AN AURA ABOUT HER THAT MAKES YOU IMMEDIATELY CALM"
“Mel has an aura about her that makes you feel immediately calm. She has created a space that is perfect for readings and reflection - it's like you can let go of all of your worries, put your life on-hold for a moment and just enjoy having some time to go on a little journey with Mel. She has great style and flair. Mel is knowledgeable, intuitive and caring. I've found myself talking about her readings many times after the session - she is a true Guide!”

"THE EXPERIENCE I HAD WITH MEL STAYED WITH ME LONG AFTER I LEFT"
"She has this amazing energy that she brings to every session and the environment is so positive and warm. It left me feeling re-energised and inspired. Her readings were not only wise and insightful, they also put a little much needed faith back into my mindset and encouraged me to be the strong person I know I can be. I will definitely be going back for regular sessions and recommending The Velvet Chair to my friends."
Deanne Pascoe - Advertising Account Director
"A SPACE AND PRACTICE THAT IMMEDIATELY CHALLENGES ANY PRECONCEPTIONS"
"Mel has created a space and practice that immediately challenges any preconceptions you may have about energy healing. It's luxurious, boudoir-esque and Mel brings a down-to-earth warmth and humour to her work. I left the session inspired by not only her insights but also her curious and collaborative spirit. Mel is truly one of a kind, and I am so glad she's sharing her gifts and insight in this way."
Emma Lazarou - Brand Manager
"WALKING BACK TO MY CAR I WAS HUMMING"
"Through a Reiki session Mel has helped me shift some of the negative energy and patterns I've been carrying for a long time. Mel has an incredible sense of empathy and is insightful without being overbearing. I felt listened to, understood and safe in her healing, calm space. Walking back to my car I was humming! I was completely energised, everything seemed brighter and in the days that followed, my patience and optimism had returned. Thank you Mel! I'll be back."
Anthea Marie - Handmaker & Social Media Guru
"I WAS A LITTLE SCEPTICAL OF THE CONCEPT OF TAROT"
"The space that Mel has created for The Velvet Chair is both eclectic and inspired, you immediately feel the warmth and love in the room. I was a little sceptical of the concept of Tarot but left The Velvet Chair feeling empowered and enlightened. Mel's natural gift for mystic healing allows you to escape to a place of fulfilment and positivity."
