Melanie Griffiths MBACP

Children’s person-centred & systemic family counselling

Professional counselling & therapy for children, adolescents & family


Hello my name is Melanie, my job is to talk to young people about feelings. Feelings are something we experience in our bodies that can be both good and bad.

I use a method of counselling whereby I walk with you on your journey, that way you make the decisions and I support you offering you guidance and support when necessary. Whatever you are experiencing, I am happy to talk things through with you, in a private setting in my garden room. I do not pass information on to your parents or schools, sometimes it can be helpful if your parents/carers know how you feel and they can help support you, however, I would always discuss this with you first and YOU are always in control of our sessions.

I work in lots of schools around South Cumbria and talk to young people from reception age 5 to year 11 age 16 . I have lots of experience working with children and really enjoy my job.

I fully understand you maybe a little nervous when you first meet me but hopefully after a short time you will feel relaxed and enjoy our sessions together. I use lots of fidget toys which you are welcome to play with whilst we talk.

I look forward to meeting you
