Integrative Psychotherapist | Counsellor

& Wellbeing Coach



Melanie Rivera

Hello, I’m Mel 


A registered MBACP Integrative Therapist |Counsellor

and Wellbeing Coach. 

I am trained in a variety of psychotherapeutic theories and approaches, and the people I work with are at the centre of the therapeutic service offered. I believe everyone should be accepted as individuals with their own vast life experience. Working with an Integrative approach can create a more bespoke experience for you, offering additional tailored resources that can enrich our work together.

I understand that the decision to seek therapy, counselling or coaching can feel overwhelming, especially if it is a new experience. Making that first step is often a difficult yet brave decision to make. I am friendly and approachable and am here to help. 

"I always offer a free 30-minute initial conversation to discuss options/approaches together".


We can see if I am a good match to meet your requirements and talk about potential steps forward (including what to expect on the first session), should you decide to go ahead with some regular sessions.

As an integrative counsellor and therapist, I am trained in a range of approaches and modalities that are integrated into counselling | psychotherapy sessions, including theory and techniques from;

Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR)​.

This treatment resolves symptoms resulting from disturbing and traumatic life experiences. Studies show that when in REM sleep we are able to make new associations between things very rapidly. EMDR is designed to tap into this high-speed processing mode that we all have, helping the brain to process the unresolved memories and make them less distressing.. 

These sessions last between 1hour and 1hour 30 mins, prices are quoted on time.  Please book a free conversation to discuss your requirements.
