Teresa Melling, MIACP

I graduated with a professional Diploma in Psychotherapy from the Tivoli Institute in Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin and I am now a fully accredited therapist registered with the Irish Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (IACP). My training is in humanistic and integrative Psychotherapy. This means that my approach is based on the humanistic model and I also combine a range of different therapeutic approaches (psychodynamic, person centred, cognitive behavioural and gestalt) when necessary to meet the needs of each client.
I bring my own experience along with my training to help find resources and wisdom to face the issues with which a person may be presented. At the heart of my work is the importance I place on the relationship of mutual respect and trust between the client and the therapist. Therapy is about listening, supporting and feeling safe. I provide a private, non-judgemental service where a person can explore and develop an understanding of their thoughts, feelings and behaviours in order to bring about a difference to his/her life. Having someone there to listen to us and hear our concerns can be valuable. In therapy that listening invites us to notice and compassionately witness the patterns that have run our lives.
In addition to my work at Orwellness, I also see clients at the Newlands Institute, Clondalkin. I trained and work at present as a telephone counsellor with the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre. I have experience working with a broad range of issues which include anxiety and depression; illness; bereavement; relationship and communication difficulties; low self esteem; substance misuse; trauma; sexual issues; sexual abuse/violence.
The first therapeutic session is used to discuss the issues involved. Any questions will be addressed and if my approach suits you, we can then agree a contract for our work together. Sessions are usually on a weekly basis and can be either short or long term. Initial consultation is available by appointment.
