Many things in life can cause us to feel off balance or not like ourselves. This can include difficult life transitions, lack of motivation, feeling 'stuck', struggles with becoming a mom, fertility problems, or grief and loss.
When we experience these situations we can feel alone or scared to say how we really feel. I strive to make women feel comfortable and safe so that they can talk about the hardships of life and begin to feel like themselves again.
Hello, I'm Melissa!
I have over 10 years of mental health experience and I am passionate about working with women and maternal mental health. I feel it is important to help women find their voice and be empowered to make the changes they wish to see.
My treatment method utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and other therapy approaches. This style allows women to learn concrete skills and to begin using them immediately.

At Redrakoon, we are always more than happy to exchange or refund an item if you are not happy with it (which we doubt will ever happen) as long as it is in the same condition it was sent within 14 days of purchase. Please note that it is the customers responsibility to pay for any postage and make sure that the product is returned to us.

We all make mistakes from time to time, no need to worry. Simply drop us an email, connect with us via live chat or give us a call and we’ll do everything we can to stop your order from being dispatched. Sometimes, depending on when you contact us we can’t, however please don’t hate us if that's the case. Worst case scenario; you can simply return it to us (for free) for a full refund, simples.
What happens if I am not home when my delivery comes?
We dispatch all orders via either Royal Mail or Parcel Force depending on the size. Both our delivery carriers will leave you a ‘failed delivery’ card if no one is home at the time of delivery and they are unable to leave it with a neighbour as all deliveries require a signature.
I have a Redrakoon voucher to use, where do I enter the code?
When you have selected your products and added them to your basket and you're ready to checkout, you will see a box to enter your code on the checkout page.
