Theory and Practice
I work from an Integrative Approach, this means that I draw from a variety of professional training skills and techniques. Some of which include, Person Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Solution Focused Therapy, Transactual Analysis and Mindfulness.This enables me to provide a bespoke, indualistic service to meet the needs of each client.
I am committed to providing a high quality counselling and coaching service. Working within a safe and confidential setting.

An opportunity for you to be completely open and honest, because you are in the safety of someone who is trained, highly experienced and impartial to your circumstance.
I provide short term solution focused counselling, to longer term counselling relationships.
Through my professional and personal experiences, I have developed a very unique mix of skills, qualities and dedication towards my work. I would describe myself as warm, creative, intuitive and genuine. I work from my experience and from my heart. At the core of my practice is the relationship built on trust and regard .As a professional, I have always and will continue to maintain the highest of standards for each client.
Skype Counselling and Coaching
Skype counselling has all the benefits of therapy without the time and expenses spent travelling. Clients are not restricted to finding a counsellor in their specific geographical location or country. Skype is ideal for clients who travel a lot, are away on business or have difficulty finding childcare. More and more clients are accessing therapy in this way. Often feeling more relaxed and comfortable in their own environment and more in control of the process. For more information on Skype counselling please feel free to give me a call or Skype me.

"I have never, probably like most people, thought that I would need counselling and have always been fairly sceptical. However, my experience with Melina has completely changed my opinion."
" I am able to let things go, rather than dwelling on them and I am able to reason with my negative thoughts. I am confident that I am able to keep this going and not fall back into the position I was."
"I have never felt that I could be happy again, but now I am thanks to my sessions in counselling."
"I just wanted to thank you Melina, for everything and make you aware of the huge impact counselling has made on me and my ability to now get on with my life."
"The Counselling and Coaching has made a considerable difference to my life and I do not feel depressed anymore. I want to say thank you Melina."
"One of the reasons that I really like coming to see Melina, is that she gives me plenty of reflection time in between sessions and re caps on the previous session, which shows the amount of progress that I have made."
