Pamela Melliar (MA SRAth, HCPC, BACP)
I was employed within the NHS as a psychotherapist and supervisor for 15 years.
I have been in private practice for many years and can offer individual art therapy, counselling and psychotherapy. Art therapy can be particularly helpful for those who find it difficult to express themselves through words.
I was a visiting lecturer at Goldsmiths College, London University in the Department of Psychotherapeutic Studies.
If you want to know more I generally offer a free introductory session, which will give you an opportunity to ask questions and help you get a sense of whether you feel comfortable with me. We will also begin to explore what you would like to get out of therapy. It will then be up to you to decide whether you want to start therapy with me and how long you want to come for. I usually see people on a weekly basis and regularly review the progress we make.
My consulting room is located in SE4 2BH. There is free parking available. I am within easy walking distance from Brockley and Crofton Park rail stations.
