Helen-Melissa Crew, Registered MBACP, BA (Hons) Counsellor & Psychotherapist
West Street Counselling & Psychotherapy Centre
11 West Street
Hello and welcome to Helen-Melissa Counselling.
Are you feeling sad, worried or stressed? Is life feeling overwhelming or too challenging? Perhaps you are needing help to overcome anxiety, panic attacks, depression, are suffering low self-confidence or are experiencing relationship, family or work difficulties?
Whatever your reason for counselling, whether it's big or small...I am here to help.
I am a fully qualified, Registered BACP Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I work with both individuals and couples and I offer the professional support you need when change feels too difficult to achieve alone.
As a counsellor, I provide a supportive and confidential therapy service. I will work collaboratively with you to address any current problems you are facing and together we may also work though any unresolved issues from the past. I will draw upon a range of different therapy models including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) depending on your individual needs. In this way you can hope to gain the most from therapy and achieve real results which stay with you.
I offer professional help for all kinds of emotional distress such as:
- Panic Disorder
- Generalised Anxiety Disorder
- Relationship Issues
- Family Issues
- Anger Management
- Feeling Sad
- Low Self-esteem
- Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
- Physical Abuse
- Emotional Abuse
- Divorce and Separation
- Bipolar Disorder
- Work Related Issues
"I cannot thank Melissa enough for her support in helping me through a very difficult period of my life. She is so calm and reassuring and helped me to feel safe, trusted and understood. I could not recommend Melissa highly enough." J. Gosport.
"Working with Melissa was a real turning point in my life. She helped me to reflect and make sense of what was happening. I stopped feeling so helpless and I found ways to move my life forward...." A.M. Fareham.
