About me

I am now offering some different options. Outdoor Counselling, Online, Telephone or Face to Face.  I'm an experienced Humanistic Counsellor and provide a safe and confidential space in comfortable rooms in Bexhill on Sea, or outside spaces near my practices. Counselling is setting aside time to explore difficulties you are experiencing which may be having a negative impact on your life.  I have Private and Public sector experience as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist, EFT practitioner and Walk & Talk Therapist working with Adults of all ages.

You may never have considered Counselling as a way of helping you with painful emotions and difficulties in your life until now.  Sometimes it may be difficult opening up to family or friends for fear of hurting, upsetting or feeling judged. Counselling is a way of working through difficult emotions and perhaps working to change behaviours which have been harmful to you or may have been holding you back. You may feel stuck.

I offer caring, perceptive, therapeutic support and acknowledge that you are the expert on yourself.

Confidentiality is at the heart of working together.  I will provide support and hope we can gently create a connection. Together we can work with different strategies to enable you to gain a better sense of who you are and where you may be able to move forward in your life.

Warm Wishes Melanie

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
