Melanie Hardcastle Registered Member MBACP (Accred), Bsc(Hons), MEd (Cantab)
I offer counselling services for children and young adults and have a particular interest in neuro-developmental disorders. My specialism is working with young people, having been a schools counsellor in both Primary and Secondary school settings and Outreach Services. I offer age appropriate therapy from ages 4 to 25 in relation to a wide range of issues and difficulties.
Sometimes I use creative therapies to aid the therapy process but other times, talking therapy or a solutions focused approach may help the young person move forward both emotionally and developmentally. This includes Cognitive Behaviour Techniques.
Ultimately, I aim to provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space for young people to share their difficulties. Enhanced DBS checked and an Accredited registered member of BACP.
Please email me in the first instance or give me a call and we can take it from there to see if we are a good fit.
