Melanie Hoggett MNCS (Prof.Acc.)
I'm an Integrative therapist with over 8 years’ experience providing Counselling, Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Hypnotherapy, and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to adults, couples and young people. My private practice is based in Trowse, Norwich, Norfolk, NR1 and I offer integrated solutions and strategies for a whole range of symptoms and support for personal growth.
I work in a holistic way and use both traditional and alternative methods during the therapeutic session, whilst maintaining a strong focus on the therapeutic relationship established with clients. All therapy sessions are tailored to meet each individual’s specific needs. Although I cover a wide range of presenting issues my experience is greater in the areas of stress, anxiety, depression, excessive worrying, low self-esteem, low confidence, sexual/physical/emotional abuse, problematic relationships, grief, loss, separation, divorce, bullying, anger management, and negative view of self.
As your therapist, I offer you the opportunity to be heard without judgement, and endeavour to create a nurturing and safe environment built on compassion, respect, integrity and understanding. A place where you can start to explore your circumstances, understand your feelings, thoughts and behaviours. I will act as your guide with a curiosity to help you identify and transform old childhood negative beliefs, emotions, conditioning and programming that no longer serve you. I believe that the client is the person who decides what is best for them, and how they will achieve the changes they want to make. As your therapist, you will have my full commitment to aid you towards achieving your goals.
During therapy, I will strive to help you increase your sense of wholeness and value, self-reliance, self-trust and your belief in your ability to succeed. Through therapy my aim is to help you feel empowered to live the life you deserve, and provide you with the tools that will enable you to become your own inner therapist.

After the leaving the consultation you can reflect and decide on whether you would like to commit to therapy with me.
