About me and my therapy practice

Melanie Hudson Counselling & Psychotherapy.

You may be looking for a counsellor for a variety of reasons. Events may have occurred that have left you feeling confused, overwhelmed, sad or afraid. We all need a bit of extra help at times and counselling can be a place for you to make sense of what you are experiencing, make positive changes in your life and increase your sense of well-being.

I will assist you to do this by providing a space where you will feel heard and understood. Where you are met with compassion and acceptance as I help you to try and make sense of your emotions so that life can begin to feel easier.

I am a humanistic integrative counsellor. This means that I place the building of a safe and trusting relationship with you central to my work, whilst integrating other approaches which I feel may be of benefit to you.

Please visit my website for more information on how I might be able to help you.

Practice description

I have over ten years of experience working in a variety of support settings. Such experience includes Victim Support, working in student support at Durham University and four years as a Practice Counsellor at GP Surgeries in County Durham. I now dedicate my time to Private Practice and mentoring at one of the Durham University colleges. I've had my own private therapy practice for three years.

I offer appointments online (by Zoom) or by telephone.  The same counselling principles apply to online and telephone therapy as they do in face-to-face counselling. However, there are additional advantages and disadvantages in accessing therapy in this way. Please check out my website for more information on this or contact me.
