“For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist with decades of professional experience. I offer virtual sessions to individuals and couples and look forward to assisting you online.”
Due to social distancing measures, I offer couple counselling online and in person for your convenience. I’m committed to supporting couples in need through unprecedented times.
As you well know, the pandemic has tested our relationship limits like never before. Factors such as isolation and major lifestyle changes place stress and anxiety on couples across the country. It goes without saying that many are feeling the heat and in search of much-needed solutions.
My role as an online relationship counsellor is more important now than ever. If you’re in need of help, consider scheduling an appointment for personalised assistance. I’m pleased to offer professional, ethical and secure counselling and psychotherapy in a remote setting.
Access Online Relationship Counselling via Zoom
Individual counselling & psychotherapy session (50 minutes): $210.00 (inc. GST)

*Please note the first consult lasts up to two hours. Subsequent sessions are ususally two to three hours long before stepping own to just one hour. In most cases only two to eight sessions are required when working with Melissa.
Counselling gives you the tools to cope with specific life challenges such as the end of a relationship, bereavement or general anxiety. Let me guide you through a personal crisis and develop goals for the future.
Psychotherapy is meant to effect change and put a stop to destructive habits or patterns. Often, people notice the repetitive nature of their personal challenges without knowing how to change them. Similar issues arise time and again regardless of context or relationship.
I am passionate about helping couples and individuals become better versions of themselves through thoughtful mental health counselling. I especially enjoy long-term psychotherapy and self-analysis in individual counselling sessions.
It may surprise you that I value psychotherapy as a client and provider. The dual perspective helps me understand my clients’ bravery in asking for help to begin the healing process.
In order to secure your appointment, I require a $280 deposit per couple or a $210 deposit for individuals due at the time of booking. Please note that appointment times are limited. If you must cancel your appointment, I respectfully request 48 hours’ notice. Missed appointments or appointments with insufficient cancellation time incur a fee of $280 per couple or $210.00 per individual.
After 20 years in business, my extensive experience as an online couples therapist has taught me that effective change depends on our unconscious minds. I believe that all aspects of the self can be supported and integrated by our conscious mind.
As a Counsellor and Psychotherapist, I’ve taken steps to streamline the process of conscious and unconscious change. For example, my Relational Psychotherapy training in Transactional Analysis and Psychodynamic approaches helps clients to modify their personalities and build better relationships.
What can I expect when we first meet with Melissa?
Couple counselling sessions include the following:
Addressing your primary concerns
Talking to your partner under my guidance
Answering questions to identify attachment styles
Learning and implementing effective communication techniques
Exercises to help you feel safe and secure as a couple
During the initial consultation, I make a plan explaining the type of support you need. I’ll also explain my intentions to help you resolve any outstanding concerns.
My main objective is to help you establish an emotionally manageable relationship. As a client, you’ll learn to cope with life’s daily challenges for greater self-empowerment.
