About me and my therapy practice

Welcome to Melina Therapy for Counselling, Life Coaching and Clinical Supervision. Bringing together 20 years of counselling experience and supporting a vast variety of mental health issues, including anxiety and depression. In these unprecedented times you may be experiencing many uncomfortable emotions, the most common are fear and anxiety, these emotions can linger during and post traumatic events. With expertise in trauma and PTSD I can help to guide you through these difficult times and support your healing. As we are all beginning to come to terms with self isolation this may be an opportunity to begin your therapeutic journey and find the inner calm you deserve. I also have expertise in working with addictions, sexual abuse, sexual assault and rape. 

Appointments are currently available by online platform via  skype and telephone and from the safety and security of your own home. I provide private and confidential therapy to individuals, couple counselling and organisations.  

Another branch to Melina Therapy is Life Coaching which is ideal for anyone who wants to make some sort of positive change in their life. Whether that is personally or professionally. From career, confidence building to health and well-being. I offer effective individualised coaching programmes, so you can overcome obstacles to find happiness and reach the  goals that you desire. I find that some clients benefit from a combination of Melina therapies and I am happy to discuss these options with you.
