Heidi Mellonie MBACP Dip Counselling
15 St Cuthberts Street
My counselling experience includes both short and long term contracts working with both young people and adults. I hope that I can help you by providing a safe counselling space where you have the space and time to explore your concerns, make sense of your experiences and see a way ahead that best suits you.
In addition to my private practice, I have gained several years experience working with the charities Rape Crisis and Mind. During this time I have gained significant experience of working with relational issues, rape, abuse, domestic violence, stress, anger, anxiety and depression although this is not an exhaustive list of presenting issues.
As an integrative person centred counsellor I aim to work with you at your own pace and without judgement to explore the issues that you choose to bring into counselling. Taking the first steps into counselling or perhaps returning can be daunting for a client. Therefore, as an integrative therapist I will work with you in the way you find most comfortable. As an artist and a counsellor I am happy to incorporate creativity into sessions in addition to face to face talking therapy, if this is something you would be interested in please let me know. It is always my goal to make the counselling experience a comfortable one for each client.
You can book a counselling session with me in central Bedford during the week, both day and evening sessions are available. To book a session please send me an email and I will respond as soon as I can.
