Biography

Melissa works in a holistic manner; not only does she recognise the mind body connection but
also acknowledges the system in which the child or family functions, never looking at a
behaviour or symptom in isolation. She supports families to embark on a more mindful parenting
journey and offers individual therapy, email consultations, family therapy, parent coaching,
workshops and camps.

Melissa’s passion is supporting mothers to be the best that they can be and helping them
relearn to connect deeply to their motherhood intuition. Throughout her professional work and
own personal motherhood experience of over 16 years, she has explored how mindfulness and
motherhood are a potent blend.

Melissa has worked in the treatment of the following:

  • Assessment, intervention, treatment and support, including therapy to individuals, their
    families/carers and groups with mental health disorders
  • Mental State Examination and other relevant assessments across the range of
    presentations and lifespan
  • Evidence-based therapeutic treatments
  • Bereavement, grief and loss counselling
  • Family/parent–child interventions, including evidence-based family interventions
  • Relationship counselling
  • Therapeutic and psycho-educational group programs
  • Assessment and treatment for alcohol and other drug misuse
  • Facilitating access to information, services and resources

Melissa utilises evidence based psychological interventions such as Cognitive Behavioural
Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Positive psychology, Solution
focused therapy, Narrative therapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and a strengths
based approach.

Melissa’s approach when working with people is client centred and collaborative and is
distinguished by empathy, respect and honesty.
