Counselling Testimonials

“I know Melissa to be extremely trustworthy, genuine and conscientious. She takes confidentiality very seriously and she is a true champion for the children in her care”.

— Gaynor Sbuttoni, Educational Psychologist


“Melissa has been absolutely wonderful with our son (8 years old) (and he does not take to just anyone!). He trusted her almost straight away and she understood him extremely quickly.

He looks forward to his sessions and gets so much out of them. His confidence and self esteem have grown and he is learning new skills to help him at school and his teachers have noticed a huge positive difference. I am so so happy we found you!”

CC, Parent


“I first reached out to Melissa when our eldest son was experiencing extreme anxiety. Not only was he struggling, but the impact was significant on our whole family. Speaking to Melissa for the first time was such a relief as she offered us as parents understanding, reassurance and hope. Melissa brought these same qualities to her sessions with our son and found strategies to support him that were personal and effective. I cannot stress enough how reassuring it felt to work with Melissa as a family and how much we appreciated the constant communication, tips and tools that she gave us to support our son. We cannot thank you enough! Our son, aged 10, says, ‘Melissa is very kind and helped me through the worst times to now be happier and less worried and anxious’.
