Mel Bonthuys was born and raised in South Africa.
She has lived with anxiety and panic disorder since she was 18 years old. She has since written a book, My Anxiety Companion, telling her own personal story as well as being jammed packed with her many coping strategies to reduce, and even completely stop, anxiety and panic disorder symptoms. You can find out more about the book here on her home page.
Through social media platforms and her weekly YouTube videos, she reaches out to other anxiety sufferers as she shares even more of her tools and tips as well as many other things to do with anxiety.
Mel has taken her condition and built an empire of hope, humour and a belief that life can still go on for fellow sufferers....just as she has done!
She currently lives in England with her husband and their two rescue dogs.
