About Melanie

"I understand that every individual's journey to wellbeing is unique".


As an Integrative Therapist and Coach, I combine a diverse range of therapeutic approaches to meet your specific needs.

Since 1996, personal life experiences have ignited my passion for mental health, wellbeing, and personal development.


I'm dedicated to continually enhancing my skills to support you on your wellbeing journey.

Private Therapy Services

I offer three primary services to adults aged 18 and above in one-on-one sessions:

  • Open-Ended Counselling & Integrative Psychotherapy

  • Short-Term Counselling

  • Wellbeing Coaching


Sessions are available remotely (online) to adults across the UK, with a new private location coming in 2024.

Wellbeing Coaching

In 2009, following my NLP Master Practitioner training, I gained invaluable experience working on various projects, including delivering government-approved wellbeing programs.


These initiatives involved one-on-one coaching and support within community hubs and diverse settings.

The Integrity Course is a Wellbeing and Life Skills program that is delivered through contract work.

Welcome to a Journey of self-discovery

My Therapeutic Approach is Humanistic and Integrative.

At the core of my work is a humanistic belief in the transformative power of empathy and respect in a safe environment. I provide a non-judgmental space for you to explore your thoughts and emotions freely.

As an Integrative Therapist, I am trained in various psychotherapy approaches, including EFIT, EMDR, and Trauma-Sensitive Resources for Nervous System Regulation and resilience.


A Holistic Perspective | Respecting the Whole Person

I maintain a holistic perspective that values and respects the whole person, including fragmented or vulnerable parts resulting from trauma or distress.

A bit about me | In addition to my professional role, I'm a mother of two sons. In my free time, I enjoy nature walks and hiking with my partner and our beloved dog.
