Own your story.
Fuel your fire and love what you do.

Hello! I'm Melanie Chisnall, a writer, life coach, and self-care advocate. I help introverts, empaths and creatives like you embrace your uniqueness, find what lights you up, and create a life that’s more fulfilling, inspiring, and sustainable.

I really do get the struggle

As an empath and creative, I know what it's like to feel like you don't fit in or that soul is begging for more. I'm here to help you get out of your head, own what makes you special, and create a life that feels meaningful and exciting to you.

"Mel helped me believe in myself and gave me the support I needed to follow my dreams and to do what really makes me happy. She helped me find my true passion in life, which has led me to make a career change – something I was always too scared to do."

Find Your Fire

one-on-one life coaching

Find Your Fire is a 3 or 6 month 1:1 Life Coaching program to help you identify your passions, improve your mindset, grow your confidence, and courageously action your goals.

You know you're meant for more

You've got this fire inside you that's fizzled out and you don't really know what to do to bring it back. You feel like a butterfly trapped in a cage, unable to be your authentic self, giving more than you get, and settling or staying stuck because your confidence is shattered or you're too overwhelmed to make any real progress on your life goals.

Sound like you? You're in the right place.

It's time to move away from a state of desperation or going through the motions to inspiration – to finally reaching your full potential (what you've been feeling in your heart all this time).

"The willingness to show up changes us, It makes us a little braver each time."

Brené Brown

Here are a few things we can do together

My 4-step process

Over 3 or 6 months, we'll work together on a personal road-map to help you get from where you are NOW to where you want to be. We'll meet over Zoom every 2 weeks for a powerful coaching session – don't worry, I'll guide you every step of the way and check-in between calls. Here's an outline of what we'll cover over the next four months:


Intro: Before we start coaching, we'll have one short alignment & intro session

Step 1: Get to the heart of what lights you up and who you (really) are

Step 2: Set up your goals & milestones with actionable steps

Step 3: Create healthy systems and practical self-care habits

Step 4: Take action on your big goal & celebrate your transformation!

I'd love to help you shine

As an empath and introvert, I probably have a good idea of what you're going through and can relate to feelings of restlessness, overwhelm and anxiety. I've learned how to protect my energy, say no for my health, and follow through on things that fuel my soul – even when they're scary or imperfect. If I could do those things, then I KNOW you can, too!

I believe in providing a judgement-free space where you feel comfortable and safe to share whatever's on your heart and mind. I'm not just your coach, I'm your biggest supporter, accountability partner, and self-care sidekick.

My approach is relaxed, positive and superficial-free. I'm all about problem-solving and purpose. Together we'll do plenty of brainstorming, collaborating and taking action.

But I can’t do the work for you – that's got to come from you. I can, however, support you and guide you every step of the way to help you get unstuck, make those big (scary) changes, and create systems for a more inspired, fulfilling and sustainable life.

What you can expect

Here's what you can expect in your coaching experience with me:

Investment: 3 months: R3500/month x 3 months or a once-off payment of R10000. 6 months: R3500/month x 6 months or a once-off payment of R20000.

"I connected with Mel in 2020, during a time when I was working extremely long hours and I had no time for my personal life or priorities. I had no boundaries and I was feeling completely overwhelmed with my work and life.

Mel taught me that I have the power to take control of my own life and that I can say no. She gave me the tools I needed to put boundaries in place and she taught me how make space for the things in life that bring me joy and keep me balanced. She helped me to change my mindset and I started putting my mental health first. I invested more time in myself and made more time to exercise, meditate and read, all of which helped me to relax and helped me with my stress levels and anxiety.
I feel more in control of my life now and have more balance between my working life and my personal life. She has also helped me to find my true passion in life which has led me to make a career change, something I was always too scared to do. Mel helped me to believe in myself and gave me the support I needed to follow my dreams and to do what really makes me happy."
