Counsellor -
Melanie Coles Registered MBACP (Accred), PG Dip. Counselling (CBT)

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.

Level 2 trained in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and I incorporate Gottman Method Couples therapy in my work with couples.

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:

• Relationship Difficulties • Self esteem
• Communication Skills • Sleep problems
• Conflict Resolution • Social anxiety
• Anxiety • Stress
• Assertiveness training • Work related issues
• Addictions

I look forward to hearing from you.
