Happy, Healed, and Whole
‘Melanie was a wonderful counsellor. She was very warm, always professional, and got the perfect balance between listening, guiding, and prompting. She was completely non-judgmental, and I felt I could say anything to her. She challenged me to interrogate my interpretations, and that analysis was invaluable. I made so much progress with her support and she has equipped me with strategies to deal with life's difficulties. I would highly recommend Mel to anyone who is looking for counselling!’ - E.V.
"Mel worked hard to gain my trust and helped me understand and process my feelings."
Terms and Conditions
Dr Mel Ashleigh is no stranger to trauma. Having lived through years of trauma and abuse, she knows how trauma can steal your sense of self-worth. She knows what it’s like to feel alone, helpless, and hopeless.
She knows how these feelings can leave you destitute, broken, and angry at the world.
For many years she remained a victim, allowing life to simply happen to her. She blamed others and allowed the damage to continue wreaking havoc on her physical and mental health.
However, with the help of counselling she was able to overcome those feelings of inadequacy and could finally take back control of her life, becoming the person she was meant to be - the hero of her own story.
Since then she has dedicated her life to helping others who are in similar situations.
‘I started having counselling with Mel Ashleigh about 2 years ago. She is a capable counsellor who has walked with me through some tough issues. She is very warm and empathetic but not afraid to challenge me and ask the 'tough' questions.’ - N.J.
‘‘Mel is a highly skilled counsellor. She worked hard to gain my trust and helped me understand and process my feelings. Through counselling I have gained a greater level of self-awareness, which has dramatically and positively impacted my life in a lasting way. Mel is both friendly and professional, I would not hesitate to recommend her.’ - T.M.
"Since having regular counselling with Mel, I have seen for myself the power of inviting God into your mental health journey. I was so trapped in a cycle of anxiety, negative thinking, and low self-worth. The process of counselling challenged all of these negative traits and I am so thankful to say that I can challenge negative thoughts now by myself and turn to prayer for my mental health’. - O.M.
