Melanie Steel BA (Hons) Counselling MBACP (Accred). CBT Individuals & Couples
Could you benefit from having help with difficulties in your life?
I am a highly qualified experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist and a accredited member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I provide both short and long term therapy in a supportive, caring, confidential and safe environment to help explore those difficulties you may be experiencing. For many, taking the first step to getting help is the start of a rewarding journey.
I have extensive experience working with a wide variety of issues including depression, anxiety, bereavement, trauma, relationship problems and anger management.
My theoretical approach is Integrative, drawing upon elements of different theories including Cognitive behavioural Therapy (CBT) which focuses on helping you distinguish unhelpful thoughts and behaviours that may be causing you difficulties and replace them with more alternative helpful thoughts and behaviours, and thus in turn changing the way you feel.
In addition to working in private practice, i currently work as a Lead counsellor at a G.P. practice, an initial assessor and allocations officer for a local counselling service and as a counsellor for SurvivorsUK which is a specialist service for clients who have suffered from trauma. I have previously worked as a counsellor for the NHS and a Community Counselling Service.
I am very passionate about counselling and the many benefits it can provide.
You are welcome to take a look around my website, and to contact me if you have any questions.
