Melissa has had a psychotherapy practice in Cape Town for the past 16 years working with individuals/adults, adolescents and children/parents offering in-depth (long and short term) psychotherapy. In her approach to psychotherapy she draws on a number of psychoanalytically oriented theoretical models which are applied to each individual’s situation and the help they require.

Her approach to therapy is based on offering her clients careful, respectful, and non-judgmental listening. This approach is best suited to people who are interested in using therapy as an opportunity to get free of symptoms that have become painful or disruptive in their lives, while at the same time learning more about themselves. During therapy sessions you can expect to have an ongoing conversation that is closely attentive to what you have to say about your own experience, in a way that often other conversations are not. This kind of talking aims to foster greater self-awareness and the growth of the whole person.  Further details about psychotherapy and the specific way she works can be given to assist you to decide if this is the correct treatment of choice.
