About me

Hello, my name is Melanie Buttery and I’d like to welcome you to my Counselling Directory page.

I have over 6 years experience and offer Counselling, Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Hypnotherapy, and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to adults, couples and young people. My private practice is based in Trowse, Norwich, Norfolk, NR1, UK and I offer integrated solutions and strategies for a whole range of issues and support for personal growth. Including using energy therapies on a body and emotional level to resolve old negative emotional learning, that often creates dysfunctional life patterns, behaviours and physical symptoms.

Although I cover a whole range of presenting issues. My experience is greater in the areas of stress, anxiety, depression, excessive worrying, low self-esteem, low confidence, sexual/physical/emotional abuse, problematic relationships, grief/loss, separation and divorce, bullying, anger management, and negative view of self.

As an holistic integrative counsellor/therapist I combine both traditional and alternative methods into the therapeutic session, whilst maintaining a strong focus on the therapeutic relationship established with clients. I offer you the opportunity to be heard without judgement, and endeavour to create a nurturing, safe environment built on respect, integrity and understanding. A place where you can explore your circumstances, understand your feelings, thoughts & behaviours. So that you will be better able to decide what you want to do, and how you can achieve the changes you want to make. During therapy I will strive to help you increase your sense of wholeness and value, self-reliance, self-trust and self-efficacy. Through therapy my aim is to help you feel empowered to live the life you deserve, and provide you with the tools that will enable you to become your own inner therapist.

The ability to improve our well being, happiness and health in terms of monetary value £ is priceless. I strongly believe that choosing a therapist that is right for you, is the most important part of therapy. I therefore offer a reduced rate 1 hour consultation/taster session, whereby I will gather information to obtain an understanding of your current difficulties, explain the different therapies that I offer, and get straight to work on your current difficulties . The consultation will also focus on agreeing how we will work together, whether I feel I can help and my answering any questions you may have. It also gives you the opportunity to assess if counselling, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, CBT, EFT or life coaching is right for you, and a general getting to know each other time.

  • Consultation/taster 1 hour session fee is £20
