Mel Wood – Reconnect / Wellbeing Coach
Address: National
Business Name: Altris Reconnect Coaching

As a former corporate manager, Mel Wood knows only too well the struggles of working mums. After taking time out of her career to raise her two young sons, she successfully negotiated a permanent part-time role when they started school.

Still struggling to get the balance she needed as a working mum, she engaged a coach to gain clarity and take back control of her life. She found the coaching experience so good that she wanted to help others on their journey.

Mel has formalised her coaching skills with an ICC international coaching certificate. Wellbeing is her passion and one of her core values. Throughout her career, she has sought out roles that support others to become the best they can be.

“My goal in life is to help mums reconnect with their passion and achieve their personal and professional goals”

Mel believes that mums can find that elusive life-balance. It is about getting clear on your ‘Why’ and the non-negotiables.

A better understanding of who you are, what you want and how to get there flow easily once these are defined.
