Hi, I’m Francesca Melluzzi,
I'm a well-being, trauma and mental health practitioner & somatic coach specialising in mentoring both neurotypical & neurodivergent teenagers online and in person in Oxfordshire.
My approach focuses on co-creating practical ‘tools’ that can be applied in daily life to empower young people so that they can thrive.
It can also be a stepping stone for teens who are unsure about seeking emotional support or are currently struggling with some emotional and behavioural difficulties but can’t access other forms of support.
Sessions are integrative and holistic, together we focus on practical ways that will support, empower and enrich a young persons growth and development.
I have experience working with a variety of issues including:
Neurodivergent (ADHD, autism) teens
Somatic symptoms such as headaches, digestive problems, pain/mobility issues
Lack of motivation
Relationships and communication
What clients are saying about me
"Francesca is amazing. Described by my teen as “super helpful” Francesca’s sessions have helped them to accommodate their ADHD while learning how to harness it. She helps them to look back at how things went and then to look forward at how those experiences might go better with a bit of planning. We have noticed a huge change as a result. Valuable coaching in a safe space where one can openly express oneself. We feel very lucky to have found her."
"Francesca has a warm and welcoming nature, allowing me to feel comfortable from our first meeting. The tools Francesca uses during her sessions are intergrative and person centered, I highly recommend her as a well-being practitioner. Before meeting Francesca I had been in therapy for about a year but the work with Francesca in the 6 weeks I spent with her was beneficial 100 times over".
"I have been doing both online classes and private 1-1 sessions with Francesca and I have seen such a dramatic improvement in my health wellbeing and movement.Over the years I've seen a huge variety of physio's, chiropractors, massage therapists as well as lots of complementary therapists for chronic pain issues. Somatics with Francesca has made more of a difference than all of them put together. To anyone who has chronic pain I would highly recommend having a chat to Francesca to discuss how she can help you too."
