I'm Melanie Verstraete

Marble Surface_edited.png

 love and relationship expert and founder of The Wild Heart Life, and I have helped thousands of men and women break out of unhealthy relationship patterns and find true love by understanding the root mechanisms that keep them in a harmful cycle.

Helping people just like you finally:

Break free from the cycle of self-sabotage

Create the types of relationships they’ve always dreamed of

And find true inner peace and confidence with who they are

I’ve also overcome the toxic relationships that stole my happiness in order to finally experience a freedom that only comes from the peace and confidence of being comfortable with myself and who I am. I cracked the code to break free from those toxic relationship cycles and attract invincible love.

But believe me when I tell you, it wasn’t always this way.

In fact, I used to be the biggest mess you’d ever seen. After surviving an abusive childhood I found myself in not one, but two very toxic marriages…
...and in the aftermath of my second divorce, I was forced to make some hard realizations about myself.
You see, due to my upbringing and how I saw the world, I was trapped in a cycle of negativity for years...

I couldn’t set healthy boundaries in my relationships

I’d lost my voice and was a chronic people-pleaser (to the point where others were always taking advantage of me)

I didn’t respect myself or understand my worth

But most importantly I felt destined to repeat the same mistakes over and over again with no idea how to break free from the habits that were stealing my peace and self-worth

After seeing all sorts of therapists and coaches I quickly realized that most of them were just as clueless (and messed up) as I was…

And I slowly understood that nothing any of these “experts” did would ever work as long as I was only focused on the surface-level “conscious” mind…

Because here’s the thing:

The conscious and subconscious mind, together with the words we speak, and our nervous systems affect us so much more than we ever realize…

They give us the confidence we need to stand up for ourselves

Allow us to overcome debilitating anxiety that would normally stop us in our tracks

And even help us heal from past trauma and move forward to a life of freedom and joy

But most of us never stop to even think about that

After addressing the unconscious and subconscious patterns at the root of my problems I’m finally free from

The negative self talk that was destroying my confidence

Unhealthy boundaries that left me emotionally drained and unloved

Toxic relationships that broke my heart and self worth

A lack of self respect that attracted exactly the wrong types of people into my life and much much more

Today, I work with clients to help them overcome these same negative cycles that hold them back from the life and relationships they deserve.

But over the years I’ve realized just how many people suffer from the same problems I used to have…...and like me, they have no idea what to do to break free and live a life they love.

That is why I am so passionate about what I do and I have dedicated my life to becoming a master coach with the insights and empathy to transform lives.


Creating a sanctuary for those ready to embark on a journey towards self-discovery, confidence, and the fulfilling relationships they rightfully deserve.

xo, Melanie
