Melissa Rolph MBACP MA BSc (Hons) PgDip
In my experience, the moment you've got in touch, we're halfway towards finding the solution: we have some understanding of what the issue is and we're doing something about it.
Hello, I'm Melissa, I've been supporting Couples, Families and Individuals with relationship and individual issues for 8 years. I completed my Masters Trainee position at Relate Cambridge where I worked for 5 years. I have taught Counselling to Adults at Hills Road College. The past two years I have been busy in my own thriving Private Practice. I have a Masters in Relationship Therapy, relationships issues are my specialist area. I also offer Individual therapy commonly helping people overcome Anxiety, Depression and Trauma related issues. I provide brief therapy or longer term therapy.
Common issues I help people with include:
- A wide range of Relationship issues (this is my specialist area) such as trust issues, affairs, considering separating, separation, co-parenting, addiction and mental health issues for the individual or anyone impacted by a family or partner with these issues, and improving relationships.
- Anxiety Disorders including Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, OCD.
- Low self compassion/self worth, high self criticism
- Fertility issues
- Dilemmas and Decisions
What is Counselling/Psychotherapy?
Counselling/Psychotherapy involve me listening to you to explore what you are experiencing in a safe confidential space. I will use my expertise and experience to provide different perspectives and skills around the problems you confront. Together we can make better sense of things, an aim is to discover a solution that's right for you, enabling you to move towards a more positive future.
What to expect.
An introductory session helps you see if you are comfortable with me, discuss what concerns you, ask questions, understand confidentiality and see if therapy could assist you. If at the end of the consultation meeting you decide that you do not wish to go ahead this is no problem at all and there is no commitment to continue.
How I work.
I have trained and practiced in many different models of therapy. I will work with you to tailor the individual therapy that suits you, your relationship or your family. My overall practice, however, is guided by my training in; Person-Centred Therapy, Systemic Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Attachment Theory, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Neuro-Linguistic programming. For more information on these models of therapy please visit my website. Our work together can draw from any of these varied therapeutic models. I ask for your feedback throughout our sessions to ensure that our time together is most useful to you.
I have practiced Mindfulness for several years. Many people find Mindfulness based techniques and practices beneficial to their well being, this could be explored in our sessions together if desired.
I am also a qualified Hypno-Psychotherapist. Hypno-psychotherapy is the clinical application of hypnosis to enhance psychotherapeutic interventions. As a Hypno-Psychotherapist I am trained at master’s level to deal with deep psychological issues and psychiatric illness.
People of any gender, sexuality or relationship diversity are very welcome.
