Mel Wilkinson Counselling & Supervision

Welcome to my site


I am a Humanistic, Person-centred Counsellor available to cover South Gloucestershire. I work from two locations; Downend and Thornbury.  I provide a personal therapeutic counselling service in my work with children, young people, couples and adults.

As a committed therapist I work hard to understand your perspective and the predicament you are experiencing. The private, confidential and safe environment I provide enables you to express feelings, thoughts and attitudes freely without the fear of being judged or made to feel guilty.

I believe it is vitally important to establish an understanding and trusting relationship so that you can express your feelings and life to make sense of the present situation. This can enable you to look forward to a better understanding so that you can cope with life. 


I work as an Integrative Counsellor. This means I believe that every individual is unique and by taking this approach I can therefore tailor my practice to my client's needs.

Life circumstances and events are often unpredictable and distressing. It is all too common to feel anxious, isolated, lonely, angry or depressed when confronted with a distressing situation.

Personal and family relationships can become difficult and unbearable. Also, the work environment can be a consistent source of stress.

Counselling and Psychotherapy has become a recommended and accepted treatment to address a variety of problems.

There are times when life can be confusing or distressing and it may be difficult to know what choices to make or understand what is happening. Personal therapy can provide a safe place and support to process life's difficulties.

Anyone wanting to access my service will be treated with respect and without judgement. Through counselling, people may have an opportunity to gain self awareness, be authentic to their feelings and develop a sense of well being. Through exploring issues that have been affecting life - an understanding can develop about what is happening and why.
