Pamela Melliar

Jungian Analyst, Art Psychotherapist

About me

I was employed within the NHS as a psychotherapist and clinical supervisor for 17 years. I have also been a visiting lecturer in psychotherapeutic studies at Goldsmiths College, London University, and Roehampton University.

I have been in private practice since 2011 and can offer verbal psychotherapy, art therapy and Jungian analysis. While verbal psychotherapy can lessen emotional distress, art therapy may be helpful for those who find it difficult to express themselves through words or access their feelings.  Jungian analysis in particular, values the unconscious, the source of our true inner self, and tries to understand its influence on current difficulties and challenges. The conversations in sessions may range round many things, such as life story and influences, hopes and fears, dreams, practical problems of the moment or creative self expression. 

If you want to know more I generally offer a free introductory session, which will give you an opportunity to ask questions and help you get a sense of whether you feel comfortable with me. We will also begin to explore what you would like to get out of therapy or analysis. It will then be up to you to decide whether you want to work with me and how long you want to come for. I usually see people on a weekly or twice weekly basis and regularly review the progress we make.

My consulting room is located in SE4 2BH. There is free parking available. I am within easy walking distance from Brockley and Crofton Park rail stations.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed my training as an Art Psychotherapist with Goldsmiths College in 2000. Up to 2017 I worked full time as a therapist and clinical supervisor in the Prison Service and various NHS Adult Mental Health Services. I have been in private practice since 2011 and am HCPC and BACP registered. From 2012-2021 I trained with IGAP (Independent Group of Analytical Psychologists) and am a qualified Jungian Analyst, registered with UKCP and member of IAAP (International Association of Analytical Psychologists).

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

HCPC

Health and Care Professions Council

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
