About me

Hi my name is Melen.

I have been counselling for the past 25 years. I see clients from my home in Redbridge, Essex. Over the years I have developed strong links with, and work closely with GPs, Psychiatrists, Hypnotherapists and other health care professionals. As well as with Employee Assistance Programs, seeing clients from large corporate companies such as banks, NHS, major airlines, schools, and various telecommunications companies to name a few.

I work with a very diverse range of clients and am respectful of difference and diversity related to race, culture, sexuality, age, gender, faith and disability.

MY SPECIALISMS INCLUDE

Cross cultural counselling, working with drinkers and their families, depression, anxiety, panic attacks and other mental health issues, work related stress and workplace bullying bereavement, sex and sexuality, relationship issues and divorce, low self esteem, self harm and other forms of abuse, miscarriage, pregnancy, birth and abortion, dyslexia and other learning difficulties.

WHY ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT COUNSELLING NOW?

Life events happen and sometimes they can cause emotional and or psychological pain. This can be in relation to your family, work situation, personal life and/or relationships. Sometimes even though you may have talked to family and friends about this is has not been enough. People often seek my help when they need to create a private time and space for themselves to talk to someone who is objective, neutral and someone who does not know them or people in their life. In doing so this helps you think and talk through what’s not working in your life, or whats currently making you unhappy.

When this happens, my purpose is to help you identify the difficulties and help you to achieve your potential by identifying your inner resources and strengths, and work through these by helping you help yourself, and facilitate your journey to a better place.

HOW LONG DO WE NEED

The first appointment is an assessment for both of us. Where we explore what has brought you, what the problems are and the context, and what you are hoping to get out of counselling. I then share with you how I think I can help and you decide if this is right for you.

If you feel that we have a rapport and you feel confident working with me that is a good sign, but if you feel there is not then there is no commitment to continue.

Having had an assessment (face to face) and we agree to work together, we decide whether our work will be on either on a short, medium or long term. The time scale we work to will depend on the presenting issues and how long I assess we will need to get you to a place where you feel your problems are resolved and you feel happy and content.

MY COUNSELLING APPROACH

Clients will benefit from a range of counselling orientations that I have been trained in, which include Solution Focused, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Psychodynamic, and Humanistic approaches.

The approach I adopt will be based on the present issues and which I feel will be most effective to you and your concerns.

My goal is to help you manage painful or difficult thoughts and feelings, and ultimately to facilitate you to live and happier more fulfilling life.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
