Introducing coaching to accelerate your career in Pelvic Health
Choose from 3 options
  • Pelvic Health DIRECT. Online forum to ask Melissa your pelvic health questions. Join for FREE.
  • Pelvic Health CONNECT. Private members-only group with live group mentoring with Melissa, group forum, access to resources for your Pelvic Health career, and a public facing Pelvic Health Directory (coming soon). Paid membership.
  • Pelvic Health PRO. One-on-one mentoring, supervision (professional or clinical), or business coaching with Melissa. Priced per hour. Discount for Pelvic Health CONNECT members.
Pelvic Health Direct is an online Q&A forum open to all health professionals - you don't have to be working as a pelvic health professional to ask a question.
The Direct forum is designed to give you easy access to Melissa and fellow health care professionals: to enable you to ask questions, get answers, and improve outcomes for your clients. This forum is for health professionals only, not the general public.
Connect is for health professionals working in the pelvic health field who have completed our INTERNALS course.* Join Dr Melissa Davidson for live online mentoring each month. The mentoring is designed to provide you ongoing support, encouragement and accountability, it will challenge you, improve your clinical skills and reasoning, and support your career development in the field of pelvic health.

Connect also includes a private community forum to enable you to ask questions, share stories, discuss issues and learn from Melissa and other pelvic health professionals in a supportive, secure, and safe environment.

* If you have completed other courses where internal examination skills are taught, please contact Melissa at [email protected] to see if that course qualifies you to join CONNECT.

Pro is designed to provide you the opportunity to customise support how you need it, when you need it, on a one-on-one basis.
You have a range of options with this individualised programme, we can focus on one aspect or do a combination – it's up to you.
  • Mentoring to provide individual support
  • Clinical peer review
  • Clinical supervision to ensure you  are on track with patient care
  • Professional supervision to challenge you to be the best health professional you can be
Pro is one-on-one personalised for your needs.
What are people saying about Melissa's coaching?
Thank you Melissa... for all your support and advice, I could really feel how much you genuinely want us to succeed and improve our profession as a whole. It is inspiring and makes me want to be a better physiotherapist. – Anna, Pelvic Health Business Course 2021

As physiotherapists we are all about the clinical side and think that if we are great physios, the business side will just fall into place. The business course helped me to see that we constantly need to be working on the business side, if the business side is ticking over then the physio side becomes easier and better. We must value ourselves before others see the value in us - Megan, Pelvic Health Business Course 2021
I attended Course 3: How to set up your business & thrive as a pelvic health therapist. This course really helps how to set myself up confidently not only as a pelvic health physiotherapist but also a business owner. Thank you so much Melissa - Natalie, Pelvic Health Business Course 2021
