Name: Mel Nevzat
Profession: Counsellor and Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling
I am a fully qualified “Person Centred” and “Humanistic” counsellor and registered MBACP member. Additionally I hold a Diploma in “Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling which allows me to work across a wide spectrum of modalities, including but not limited to CBT, Psychodynamic as well as Solution Focused therapies.
With 5 plus years of counselling experience within both the private and public sector, I have gained invaluable experience within substance misuse agencies, bereavement, domestic violence, student counselling, EAP counselling as well as IAPT/ NHS services, offering both short term and long term support. Currently I also offer my expertise to Diabetes UK a nation-wide charity based organization offering support for people been affected by Diabetes.
I take an integrative approach to counselling enabling me to draw upon a range of counselling theories in order to tailor a “best fit” course of action, specific to each client. I place great importance in ensuring that my clients are made to feel comfortable in my presence and as such take great pride in providing a safe, secure and non-judgmental environment – elements which are essential in order to nurture a positive therapeutic counsellor/ client alliance.
Whether you are in the midst of crisis, experiencing feelings of dissatisfaction or simply seeking to address a specific issue, my aim as a therapist is to help you to gain an insight and new perspective in which your feelings and thoughts can be understood, thereby allowing you to work towards finding solutions and a new perspective.
My background in bereavement and trauma enables me to be in tune with how, why and where emotions are held and to focus on establishing various ways of healing, allowing you to come to accept the past in order to pave the way for a more positive future. As well as trauma and bereavement I have extensive experience in Addictions, Abuse, Couples Issues, Domestic Violence, Family Issues, Personality Disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Sexual Abuse, Stress, Suicidal Thoughts, Work Related Stress and Self Esteem Issues.
