With expertise in;
During these difficult times clients and likewise therapists may be experiencing many uncomfortable emotions, with the most common being fear and anxiety and the feeling of loss of control and uncertainty. These emotions can linger during and post traumatic events and with expertise in trauma and PTSD I can help guide you through this difficult time and as you continue to practice. Exploring and identifying the new norms and keeping your clients and your practice safe.
My approach is Integrative drawn from a variety of therapies and coaching skills which include;
Working from an Integrative approch enbles me to tailor your supervision to your individual or organisational needs. Whilst taking an holistic approach towards your practice, self-care and well-being.
Providing a warm safe space where you can explore and reflect on your client cases and practice to gain understanding, support and guidence. Built on the core concepts of therapy to build trust, openess and honesty without judgement. In line with the BACP Ethical Guidlines and Framework.
From my personal origins and professional experiences I have had the fortune of being a part of and working with different client needs, cultures and communities. Reflective within my practice to embrace and welcome openess to individuality, diversity and sensitivity to individual needs.
- I would reccomend Melina if you want an approach that is genuine, warm, caring, reflective and informed. I am able to be fully transparent about my emotions and thought processes about my clients. I have felt safe to be able to explain fully how the therapy I have undertaken has impacted on my own well-being. I have learned to be extremely confident in my abilities and my ethical approach.
- I find Melina extremely warm and encouraging of my developement. Able to give enough of herself without taking away from her supervisee's. She is naturally able to guide me towards reflection rather than merely 'making' me do it.
- I have increased my self awareness and assertiveness and improved arrangements for my team through supervision work, setting up policies and procedures and increased my ability to make descisions. Thank you so much.
- I feel that I am becoming a better therapist for my clients working in a specialised area. Gaining a kinder and more compassionate relationship to myself and a better understading of trauma. A huge impact and thank you Melina, you have been fantastic and I appreciate your supervision and support so much.
