Welcome. I'm Melanie Hudson. I'm an accredited and registered counsellor and psychotherapist - I assist individuals with their emotional wellbeing.

What to Expect

An introductory assessment session allows you to see if you feel comfortable with me, share what concerns you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and determine if therapy could benefit you. Please use a contact option on the right to book an introductory assessment session in Durham.


Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You determine what matter concerning your early years or adulthood you discuss. An objective of counselling is to enable you to speak about a difficulty and find a way forward which is appropriate for you.

Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye movement desensitisation reprocessing guides your eye movements to affect how your brain processes information. The technique endeavours to reprocess your frozen traumatic recollections. The aim of eye movement desensitisation reprocessing is to desensitise your painful memories.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends eye movement desensitisation reprocessing for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the difficulties you confront. It considers your ideas, emotions and relevant moments in your history. Psychotherapy intends to help you change or find suitable methods of coping.
