Francesca Melluzzi is a well-being practitioner, somatic coach, mentor, and trauma & mental health practitioner; with 20 years of experience working with body-based therapies using coaching, breath work, therapeutic art, yoga and embodied movement.

 Her work is based on Somatic coaching, mindfulness, psychoeducation, attachment theory, and polyvagal theory with the understanding that stress is released through the body and not just talking alone.  She firmly believes that people thrive when they are made to feel emotionally and psychologically safe.  She feels it is possible to create an empowering and nurturing space for any young person, so that over time, it will bring about a sense of trust towards themselves and others, ultimately resulting in them feeling closer to being in their own autonomy with practical tools and strategies to manage the ups and downs of life.

 

Francesca also works with various Oxford based charities and runs courses for parents with neurodivergent children through the NHS and CAMHS. She has also worked as a support worker for a respite centre  – “Camp Mohawk”, which supports children and families with special needs.  Francesca has also co-founded a youth well-being project called ‘Thrive teens’ that supports teenagers to connect with other neurodiverse young people, through the use of therapeutic art as well as using movement, sound, and mindfulness as tools and strategies that give people practical ways to manage difficult emotions, and to improve both physical and mental health.
