Counsellor -
Melanie Coles MBACP (Accred), PG Dip. Counselling (CBT), UKRCP Registered Independent Counsellor/Psychotherapist:-

I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their strict code of professional and ethical guidelines.

I offer clients an empathic, non-judgemental, safe and confidential environment to explore their issues and concerns. In my work with clients I integrate techniques such as mindfulness, stress management, assertiveness skills and relaxation techniques as needed.

Whilst in training I gained experience of working with clients with depression, anxiety and a wide range of psychological issues at a charity offering counselling for clients with mental health issues. I also completed training in substance abuse at a drug and alcohol agency.

Currently I am in private practice and have experience of helping clients with:

• Addictions • Phobias
• Anxiety • Relationship difficulties
• Assertiveness training • Self esteem
• Bereavement • Sleep problems
• Depression • Social anxiety
• Eating disorders • Stress
• Obsessive Compulsive Behaviour • Work related issues
• Panic Disorder
