Melissa's Journey

I’m Melissa Perna, a qualified Holistic Hormone Coach, Reiki Practitioner and a doTERRA Wellness Advocate.

Before becoming a hormone coach, I worked for more than 20 years in education. I loved being involved in the guiding, supporting and nurturing of the young children I worked with and found it incredibly rewarding to witness the growth of each unique individual.

Like many others, my journey to wellness started with a personal crisis. Starting in 2006, I began noticing persistent experiences of anxiety and depression and was struggling with weight issues, low self esteem, adrenal fatigue and an underactive thyroid, which led to the partial removal of my thyroid. I felt the full effects of hormonal imbalance and was eventually diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Life was uncomfortable and I was fed up. Having no success with conventional medication or available health treatments, I began to research and study hormonal health, while also experimenting and listening to my own body, learning what works and what doesn’t. After many years of study, and after becoming a qualified integrative nutrition health coach specialising in hormones, I no longer suffer from consistent pain and sickness. I have grown immensely as a person and every part of my journey has made me wiser, kinder and more patient.

Today, I’m happily married to my husband Cameron and although we have no children of our own, we cherish the quality time we spend with each other and our family. In my spare time, I gain peace and serenity by meditating daily, practicing yoga and pilates and taking long walks on the beach.

My goal is to share my passion and skills to give hope to those who are suffering: the body has an amazing capacity to heal and recover, if it is just given the chance. I look forward to connecting with you and helping you along your journey back to good health.
