Melissa M’Lou

I was born and brought up in Honor Oak, South-East London. When I was seventeen I lost both my parents and my home. My mum died of breast cancer and my dad lost his way, he finally died 23 years later. Since then I have rebuilt my life and I have very good inner resources for managing the trials and tribulations of life in a very chaotic world. I have studied integrative counselling for three years, part of this time I spent studying meditation and transpersonal psychology at the University of East London, my supervisor was a nun of a high order and I worked with Buddhist Monks. In my own therapy, I used my dreams as a tool to understanding my journey. I am also a qualified ITEC therapist, specialising in massage, aromatherapy, reiki and meditation.

I take a psycho-spiritual approach to my work and integrate the healing of the mind, body, emotion and spirit. I use guided meditation, awareness of breath and acupressure points as tools to aid the healing process. I have worked with a very diverse client group and I have 15 years experience of working with children and their families. I have an in depth knowledge on needs such as bereavement, learning difficulties, additional needs such as ADHD and autistic spectrum condition, attachment disorder, pathological demand avoidance, and depression and anxiety. I take a very holistic approach to the individual and I am able to help support and transform my clients in various aspects of their life. I can give support on lifestyle, healthy eating and drinking, exercise and relationship difficulties.

As part of my training to be a psychotherapist, I have worked with more vulnerable members of society such as those with mental health needs, drug and alcohol addiction and women fleeing domestic abuse.

I also have a Bachelor of Art in Communications and Anthropology from Goldsmiths, University of London and I studied Water Security and International Development at the University of East Anglia. I developed my passion for nature and the environment at Goldsmiths and deepened my knowledge at the University of East Anglia where I was part of a research project on Climate Change and Conflict for the Tyndall Centre for Climatic Research.
