Melanie specialises in individual and Relationship Counselling in Sydney and has worked as a registered Psychologist for over 12 years, in a variety of public and private settings. She has previously worked as a college guidance counsellor with children, teenagers, and their families, and understands the busy lifestyles many families lead in today’s day and age. For these reasons she facilitates Skype and phone sessions if face-to-face sessions are not possible.
She particularly loves working with couples and families, as she feels that having healthy relationships is essential to our overall happiness. Melanie has experience working with a variety of issues that couples and families face, such as communication breakdown and conflict, infidelity and issues with trust, achieving a satisfying sex life, separation and joining of families, and even to explore how to re-ignite the ‘spark’ in a romantic relationship.
Currently also working as a Coaching Psychologist and Educator, Melanie works from a solution-focused approach and uses tools from Positive Psychology, Narrative Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to guide individuals and couples to get to where they want to be in their lives.
One of her key strengths is her ability to foster a non-judgmental environment to explore these challenges for couples and individuals, allowing for the safety and trust necessary for a productive counselling dynamic.
