About me and my therapy practice

Welcome to Melina Therapy. I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor, Clinical Supervisor and Life Coach.

With expertise in addictions, relationships, sexual abuse and violence, trauma and PTSD. I am experienced in working with children, young people, adults, couples, EAP and organisations.

I believe that the supervision relationship is equal and built on the core concepts of therapy to enable openness and honesty without judgement or consequence. Appointments are private and confidential and in line with the BACP Ethical Framework.
