I felt very supported by Melanie and went away each week with a happier outlook. By the end of my 10 sessions I was able to control my feelings of anxiety which has given me my confidence back, and I now have the motivation to try new things and go to new places which I couldn’t have ever imagined doing before seeing Melanie.
I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity of having Melanie as my counsellor. I was in an abusive relationship for many years and I always believed it was my fault. Melanie helped me see things in a different way. I never felt she was judging me and she never made me feel ashamed. She gave me the tools and confidence to help me discover who I really am, which helped me move on with my life. I can wholeheartedly say that I feel so much stronger and happier now than I have ever done before. I am now able to walk away from situations if they are not right and I wouldn’t have had the strength to do so before. Thank you Melanie, seeing you was the best decision I have ever made.
I found every session incredibly insightful, Melanie frequently explored different avenues I hadn’t thought of in terms of behaviour patterns and emotional responses. Melanie always ensured I went away from each session with a task or goal which helped me tap into what she had taught me throughout the week. From our initial session to my last, my self-esteem has increased and I now have confidence to trust my instincts and be comfortable with who I am.
Melanie has been a huge support and I will be forever thankful for her helping me through a difficult time and helping me with my personal growth.
I have found the whole experience extremely positive; it has been difficult at times, but I have embraced the insights I have had with your help. You have challenged me in a gentle and skilful way, kept me focused and peeled back layers I didn’t know I had there. I feel that I have been able to reach a deep sense of peace and calm within myself that I never thought I would be able to achieve…. I had always just accepted that this was who I was. With your help I feel I now have the confidence to move onto a different path in my life that I can maintain going forward.
I can’t thank you enough Melanie for all your help, you are a truly amazing counsellor and I’m so glad I found you… I felt safe with you enough to share my vulnerable side, which was a challenge for me. I have really enjoyed the experience, thank you so much.
