Melanie Green Dip. Couns, Humanistic Counsellor, MBACP Reg
Hello and thank you for visiting my profile. I'm an experienced Humanistic Counsellor and provide a warm, safe and confidential space in comfortable rooms in Bexhill and Seaford. 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 offer also offer Walk & Talk Therapy from Bexhill working with Adults.
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. With empathy and non-judgemental support 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
