Adult / Adolescent / Couples and Family Counsellor / Parenting Coach


My name is Melanie Godfrey (everybody calls me Mel) and I am a Registered Counsellor and EQ Practitioner having been in practice for fifteen years. My areas of specialisation are adults individuals, adolescents, couples and families. I offer counselling face-to-face in my practice in Claremont and online with individuals and groups worldwide on different platforms.


I use an Integrative Therapeutic approach which combines person-centred, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy with a focus on mindfulness and creativity depending on my client’s needs. I deal with (amongst others) issues such anxiety, stress, emotional self-awareness, self-regulation, social and relationship awareness and burnout, offering skills and tools to help each person understand their own emotional self and how this affects their behaviour. 


Understanding and accepting your own strengths and limitations allows you to be able to respect your own values and move forward through life being able to put authentic boundaries in place leading to healthier relationships with self and others.  


I have developed many programmes such as "The importance of EQ in the Workplace", "The effects of Burnout and how to manage it", "Loss and bereavement" and “The importance of Wellbeing for employees” amongst other. These programmes have been run in schools, corporate environments and with University / College students both face to face and online.


I believe I am an empathic and creative in my approach and an attentive listener offering a safe, non-judgmental space for my clients to unpack their challenges guiding them in developing tools to help them face their day to day challenges and achieve their relationship goals.  


I love my work and am passionate about helping and guiding individuals and groups.  I really enjoy running workshops both online and face-to-face and offer group therapy for all sorts of issues.


I look forward to meeting you.
