Dr Melanie Rein, G.A.P., IGAP., IAAP, UKCP reg.
I am a Jungian analyst and psychotherapist based in Cambridge working mainly with individuals, and also with couples.
I work with a wide variety of people who have a range of issues and problems. Some have experienced deep trauma and feelings of desperation. Some may find themselves faced with an unexpected situation or difficult decision. Some are interested in developing a deeper understanding of their life experience.
People often contact me because they have a problem or issue, whether current or in the past, which they need help in resolving and understanding. I provide a quiet, safe space where a person can talk – and be listened to and heard.
As a Jungian Analyst and Psychotherapist, I often invite a client to explore dreams and pictures with me. Doing so can indicate ways for a person to understand some of the deeper nature of individual experience – and find ways forward. As a result, a person may discover new creative energy and meaning in their life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Member of the Guild of Analytical Psychologists (G.A.P.), the Independent Group of Analytical Psychologists (IGAP), the International Association Analytical Psychology (IAAP) and UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
I work mainly with individuals, and also with couples. I have previously practiced as a family therapist and social worker and worked with children, families, couples and individuals, in a number of therapeutic settings.
Having worked extensively in the business sphere, I also have a wide understanding of pressures relating to work-life balance, including the effects on other family members.
Registered / Accredited
