Health and Wellbeing with Counselling
I am a qualified Psychosynthesis counsellor working in East Dulwich and London Bridge in person. What a year 2020 was, unexpectedly overwhelming, frightening and restrictive to our daily lives. This is a truly challenging and constantly unfolding time and I would be happy to hear from you to arrange an appointment to talk about what is going on for you. For in person work precautions are taken for your safety, but I am currently working both in person and online although with limited availability.
I welcome new clients who might be struggling with the changing situation to help look for ways to manage stress and anxiety, but to also see possible opportunities and work with any issues that may be arising for you at this time.
I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling, accredited by Middlesex University and am a member of the BACP. I work with a range of individuals from all backgrounds.

I work one to one with individuals in person. Each session lasts for fifty minutes; weekly attendance is most effective. Please email me for more information about payment and how I work at the contact me page
Prior to becoming a counsellor I worked in the arts for almost twenty years and learned to interact with a diverse range of people, one to one. I now use my counselling skills and intuition to work with people in a compassionate and understanding way. Intuition and experience help me to work with the uniqueness of each person I meet. I leave judgment for the outside world thus creating a safe space for you to explore your feelings safely, feeling well held at all times.
Counselling can be a space to be utterly focussed on your needs, free from guilt or shame. We all need a space for ourselves, a time to focus on our own needs, and this is what I offer you. You may have come to this page because life is difficult, feelings might be painful, and I am sorry if this is the case. I would like to meet you to help you explore what is happening in your life with a focus on guiding you toward new ways of being with your feelings. If this is of interest, please contact me.
Testamonial from Jackee Holder:
"Having worked and trained with Mel I would highly recommend her as a therapist. Mel is insighftul, with a clear commitment to intersectionality in how she works and who she works with. Mel works from a feminist perspective that is both refreshing and is of value for all genders. Mel's assertive and compassionate approach provides a safe and confidential holding space to work therapeutically with individuals to create change and shifts."
