About me

Hello, I am Melanie and I understand that life can be challenging sometimes. With its setbacks, traumas, failings and tragedies our life experiences can impact us in several ways. Counselling provides a safe and confidential place where our lived experiences can be explored to provide greater understanding and insight into who we are as individuals.

True strength is not just determined by one’s ability to win or succeed but rather the capacity to persevere through hardships. Knowing that difficult periods or disappointments in life are finite but hope is infinite, will empower one towards their therapy goals. As an Integrative Counsellor I provide warm, non-judgemental, supportive and emphatic therapeutic relationship. I believe my clients are the masters of their own lives and have within them the power to overcome what brought them into counselling. I draw on my training, experience, skills and techniques to work collaboratively with you to get to the underlining root of the issue to bring about clarity, healing and change. Our counselling sessions will allow you to understand yourself and your personal experiences to help bring self-awareness of your thoughts, actions and emotions.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accessibility

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.
