Mellissa Hamley works as an integrative counsellor which means that she will work with you collaboratively. Mellissa believes that there isn't one approach that will fit everyone. We are all unique and she will try and tailor it to your needs and circumstances. She s passionate about providing a safe,
a judgement-free environment where you can explore whatever is bringing you to therapy.
In sessions with Mellissa, she will look to understand what is troubling you as well as you as a whole person. She will work to put herself in your shoes and see the world from your point of view. In initial sessions, you can explore your current issue and over time, when you are comfortable, look into the deeper elements. Mellissa will not tell you what to do or give advice, but be there to listen and help you find your own solutions.
For the last couple of years, Mellissa has been volunteering as a counsellor at Mind and have worked with issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, low self-esteem, abuse and trauma. She now also has her own practice.
Mellissa is interested in all aspects of mental health and loves that she gets to continue her learning all
the time. Mellissa has a particular interest in trauma and creative therapies.
