** Online Counselling & Psychotherapy **
Working through life's challenges together...
Hello, my name is Melissa. I strive to help my clients feel heard and reach any goals they may have in a safe, non-judgmental and supportive space. I view therapy as a collaborative effort between therapist and client, in which we work together to focus on ways to help you move forward. Therapy is a journey which helps you to make sense of what is going on and find a way forward. When we make sense of our situation, it helps us to better tackle the issues and difficulties we face. I would describe my style as warm, open, and empowering, and I consider establishing rapport and building trust as the foundation for my therapeutic relationships.
As an integrative psychotherapist, I believe that our early life experiences affect our behaviour and personality in adulthood. Our unmet needs can influence our decisions in adulthood, where we can unconsciously try to recreate our experience of childhood by doing what feels ‘safe’ (familiar). However, this can mean getting stuck in ways that may no longer work. Therapy can help you become more aware of yourself and find new ways of coping. My role as a therapist is to take therapy at your pace, and offer you understanding, gentle challenge and a safe, non-judgmental supportive space.
I am a BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist. I work alongside another psychotherapist in private practice at Relational Counselling (Tadworth). I also have experience working within Cruse Bereavement Support, The Mix and IAPT. My experience I have helped clients with a wide range of concerns, some including: depression, anxiety, trauma, bereavement, loss, baby loss and miscarriage, anger management, and relationship issues. My integrative approach combines various modalities, some including cognitive-behavioural, humanistic, psychodynamic, and solution-focused therapy. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
Below is one of my favourite quotes, I believe healing comes when we share our story with someone who is understanding, empathetic and does not judge:
“If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can’t survive.” - Brené Brown
It takes courage to reach out for support. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
Together we can find a way forward.
