Amy Mellin MBACP, FdA Integrative Counselling.
Sometimes life is hard. I recognise that we are all unique and your reasons for seeking therapy will be as individual as you. As an Integrative Counsellor I can help you find ways of coping with traumatic experiences, managing harmful emotions and behaviours and manage anxiety and/or depression in ways that resonate with you. I believe that we are all unique and so should be our approach to therapy.
My training includes; CBT, Humanistic and Psychodynamic approaches to therapy. Whilst these theories and techniques are important and enhance me professionally, it is the therapeutic relationship which you and I build that will become central to the therapy, which is why it is so important to find a therapist you feel you can build this relationship with.
If you feel this might be me, please send me an email or give me a call. I offer a free 20-minute, no obligation phone call to try and help you decide whether you feel I am the right therapist for you.
Reaching out can feel hard for a variety of reasons. You have already taken a huge step in looking me up. If you do send an email or give me a call, I can assure you that you will be met with friendliness, warmth and by someone who genuinely wants to help.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
