  • Melanie Bain (MBACP)
  • Marschak Interaction Method (MIM assessment) and Theraplay® activities based on Theraplay® principles with The Owl Centre for Children’s Independent Therapy
  • The aim in the Theraplay sessions is to create an active, emotional connection between the child and parent or caregiver, resulting in a changed view of the self as worthy and lovable and of relationships as positive and rewarding. In this area I work with children of any age.
  • Independent Family Group Conference Co-ordinator and Mediator
  • As the coordinator, my aim is to encourage the family and friends to come together to be involved in the decision-making process to meet the child or children need. It is a way of enabling families and friends to take responsibility for the child and to find solutions to address family and professional concerns.
  • Humanistic Counsellor PGDip - NCS Accredited Registrant Membership number: NCS19-08319 - Online - Telephone and in person at Oxfordshire Therapy & Self-Development Centres
  • The aim of my work is to enable the client to increase self-awareness and notice-hidden attitudes, feelings or behaviours that they may have in relation to their current situation or problem. My belief is that when we become more aware of ourselves this increases our own ability to see, challenge and change old unhelpful patterns and belief systems. In this role I work with 16+ and adults only.
