Brentwood, 6.09pm: 9°C, drizzle

Mel Watson

I have been with Phoenix FM since April 2007 - I came in to be interviewed about yoga just after the station launched in March, and enjoyed it so much that my own show - Body Talk - was born.

On Body Talk I cover a different health topic every week and interview top healthcare profesionals including doctors, surgeons, healers, reflexologists and life coaches.

I feel that all therapies have their place in today's world, and some of the more alternative methods can easily complement convential medicine.

I have been a yoga and meditation teacher for over 20 years, am a qualified hypnotherapist, and I have also trained in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Emotional Freedom Technique, Reiki, Lucid Dreaming and Dream Therapy. I run regular classes at the Brentwood Centre as well as private one to one sessions.

I've walked a spiritual path for most of my life and outside of radio and teaching I'm an Independent Celebrant. I officiate at Weddings, Naming Ceremonies, Spiritual Blessings and Funerals. You can find out more at
