More Detail

11 Years Post-Accreditation Experience

Welcome. I'm Mel. I'm an accredited counsellor - I help individuals, couples and families with their psychological health. I have private sector experience as a counsellor.

What to Expect

An initial assessment meeting allows you to discover if you are comfortable with me, share what troubles you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and assess if therapy could benefit you. Please use a contact option on the right to book an initial assessment session in Bothwell.


Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You decide which matter concerning your early years or adult life you discuss. The objective of counselling is to enable you to speak about a difficulty and discover a way forward that is right for you.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy focuses on the unconscious meaning of the issues you encounter. It facilitates you in being conscious of aspects of your inner dynamics. Psychodynamic therapy seeks to increase your self-comprehension to give you options.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) indicates psychodynamic therapy for anorexia nervosa, depression, self harm and substance dependence.
