My name is Melanie Cox and I am a qualified psychotherapist based at HQ Therapy Rooms in Hackney, E8.
I am a fully qualified and registered MBACP Humanistic Psychotherapist with over 11 years of experience.
I work with couples and individuals. I am trained in Person-Centred psychotherapy, Adult and Adolescent psychotherapy at the Institute for Art in Therapy and Education, and Formative Psychology at Spectrum Therapy.
I have completed additional training in couples work with Spectrum Therapy, the Gottman Institute, USA, and Clearmind International.
Therapeutic approaches I work with include:
- Attachment Theory
- Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
- Formative Psychology
- Transactional Analysis
- Trauma and Stress Relief Exercises
- Mindfulness and Mediation
My work with couples is psycho-educational, emotional and strategy based. In couples sessions I work with:
- Developing an understanding of the underlying emotional issues
- Ways to deal with conflict
- Improving communication
- Developing greater intimacy
- Developing a better understanding of your partner and yourself
Couples sessions are usually fortnightly unless there are pressing issues and in that case, I would work more frequently with you for a few weeks. I believe, and it has been my experience, that most couple’s issues can be successfully worked through no matter how severe they may seem.
I draw extensively from the Gottman Institute and Sue Johnson’s work. I have a list of recommended reading which I am happy to share. Please feel free to email if you would like a copy.
I am currently seeing clients face to face and online on Zoom.
My rates for individual work are £70, for 50 minutes, and for couples work £90 – £125 for 50 minutes to one and a half hours.
