About me and my therapy practice
Hello, I'm Melissa, I've been supporting Couples, Families and Individuals with relationship and individual issues for 9 years. I have a Masters in Relationship Therapy, relationships issues are my specialist area. I also offer Individual therapy.
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. I am a trauma informed therapist. 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. As a Hypno-Psychotherapist I am trained at master’s level to deal with deep psychological issues and psychiatric illness.
