About me

Smita Melling
Practitioner Psychologist, MSc, MBA and registered with HCPC and BACP. Member of BPS, BABCP & BACP.

I am confident liaising with clients in order to deliver high-quality, confidential, ethical and empathy-driven counselling services to reach solution-focused goals in a non-judgmental and non-advisory setting. I am experienced in building collaborative working relationships with clients across different cultures. I have the passion to work with people in order to help them make a positive impact on their lives. I continually seek personal development and am passionate about counselling, coaching and mentoring people.

I have work experience as a Counselling Psychologist using mostly solution-focused and cognitive therapy while working in corporates and Employee Assistance Program services for various everyday-life and professional concerns. I am a counselling psychologist by qualification living in London and also a member of the British Psychological Society.

My academic and work experience has given me the skills to work with people from a variety of backgrounds. My ability to work under pressure has been illustrated by my handling management roles in the past. I have also gained industry experience in Human Resources and I am keen to mentor people who wish to bring positivity and empowerment to their lives.

Member organisations


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.

Key details

DBS checked
Wheelchair user access

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.
