We don’t see things as they are; we see things as we are”

– Anais Nin

The pace of modern living is so fast these days it is not surprising that life can seem overwhelming and impossible at times. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) has been proven to help.  I am a British-trained Cognitive Behaviour Psychotherapist and a certified Life Coach.  I have been working with young people, adults and couples facing all sorts of difficulties for over 20 years. I specialise in working with expats, offering sessions online to clients worldwide or in person in Munich.

Embarking on therapy or coaching can seem daunting and the most difficult part of this is often making that first contact, when you are feeling at your worst. I endeavour to make The Cove as accessible as possible and welcome enquiries, whatever the issue.

To find out more, explore my website, send me an email or give me a call. I’ll always look forward to hearing from you.

What people are saying

Melanie was definitely my greatest ally during the most difficult of times of my life and I still consider her my best ally now that “life is good”.   Making that first appointment with Melanie was one of the best decisions I’ve made, benefiting not just me, but also everyone in my family.

What people are saying

Melanie is very empathetic and was able to successfully mediate between my partner and me, allowing us to finally listen to each other after months of fighting. Thank you Melanie, for your patience and advice!

What people are saying

I met Melanie online and she helped me through one of the most difficult times of my life.  She was able to coach me through some complex emotions and I gained perspective and insight. She gave me coping strategies and focus for the important immediacies, with reassurance that I was progressing as I went through the array of emotions. It is very useful to able to speak with an impartial person about challenges, perspective and goals.

What people are saying

Working with Melanie has allowed me to create new perspectives on beliefs about myself. Melanie asks me the right questions,and guides me in seeing old and new situations with a proactive mindset. This leads me to change the conversation with myself. Our sessions are via Skype, which is quite convenient for both of us, and this hasn’t affectat all the quality of our work.

What people are saying

Melanie’s coaching helped me draw a picture of the root causes of my frustrations which were negatively impacting my personal and professional life. She has given me the tools to accept myself and change my behaviour so that I can manage the situations myself for the long term. The results were so impressive that I was able to not only accept my environment but embrace it and become a key figure in it. Shortly after our first sessions I was promoted to Manager and kept growing since then.
