Dear Breathzone Friend. Nice to meet you!
My name is Melike. I am the founder of BREATHZONE.
I started my professional career as a Chartered Accountant in a big four professional services firm.
I enjoyed a very successful career in finance leadership roles, working in blue chip Technology (Software), Business Services and Infrastructure companies as as Tech Startups well over a decade.
Working in senior management roles and managing teams, I
understand the importance of offering my teams fast and effective tools that they can proactively use – to manage their stress, anxieties and other life’s challenges – in and outside the office.
Then my breath journey started leading me to found Breathzone.
In Breathzone, we are very passionate about helping our clients to discover and connect to their most precious and powerful tool to take charge of their health and wellbeing - their Breath!
There is much more to Breath that we see
It is the foundation of all modern tools that we know and use - Yoga, Meditation, Mindfulness, Exercise.
It is the only tool we all have, enabling us to control our Automatic Nervous System and therefore change our Emotional, Mental and Physical state.
Join me and Breathzone to discover your Breath!
My breath journey
Started with my inquisitive nature and a strong desire to find a natural and powerful method to
manage stress I faced everyday ,
boost my focus, creativity and productivity at work, and
improve my overall health and wellbeing.
I was looking for a tool or solution that I could use
Without needing any specific clothing, equipment or a designated space
I also needed this solution to be
Versatile - Catering to what I need throughout the day (energy boost, calm, sleep better etc)
Fast acting - Can be effective even with 30 seconds of practice
I tried so many different tools but nothing has all of these qualities.
What started as a curiosity, turned into a passion when a loved one diagnosed with cancer and I had to take charge of the long journey back to health.
I started researching ways to help support the medical treatment and being an analytical person, focused on scientific studies and research to find answers. To my surprise, I found a very large body of research detailing the exceptional role played by Breath not only improving physical health but also building resilience to meet immense mental and emotional challenges of this disease and grueling treatment.
Fascinated with my findings, I decided to train extensively in Breath Therapy and integrate it into the treatment plan. What I witnessed in this journey completely changed my beliefs on the potential of human beings and how easily we can take charge of our wellbeing simply by understanding and learning to work with our Breath.
Extensive training in Medical, Scientific and Holistic approaches
I have now personally trained under modern breath masters including Dr. Judith Kravitz (Transformational Breath) and Dan Brule (the world's foremost expert and pioneer in the field of breath-work) as well as Medical Doctors, Dr Richard Brown and Dr Patricia Gerbarg, with published scientific research in Breathing.
Unique signature Breathing practice
Through my training and extensive field-work, and adopting a science based approach, I designed a unique 'Transformational Conscious Breathing (C)' framework combining Breath Therapy, Correct Breathing pattern development and Meditation.
Conscious Mindful Breathing has a remarkable ability, scientifically proven to reduce stress and anxiety, achieve emotional mastery, physical wellbeing and high performance in all aspects of life.
I work with businesses, institutions, and the public
Offering bespoke programmes designed to help my clients de-stress, re-balance, and boost creativity and performance by learning to tap into the natural power of Breathing.
Science based approach and focus on long-term change
Adopting a unique, science-based approach in my coaching, based on the latest research in neuroscience and psychology, my aim is to empower my clients for long-lasting change.
