Melissa Quinn is a multi-qualified therapist based in Ballymahon, Co Longford. She qualified as a counsellor and psychotherapist and is a certified Reiki practitioner. Melissa is available to assist people who are in distress or have reached a point in their lives where they realise they are not reaching their full potential. Melissa has worked with clients from a young age to beyond retirement.
While her approach is primarily person-centred, she works in an integrative way that draws on a background including psycho-dynamic, cognitive behavioural therapy, Reiki, and meditation/ relaxation training. All successful therapies have a common ground of the relationship of mutual respect and trust between the counsellor and client.
These counselling techniques invite the client to develop a deeper awareness and understanding of themselves. Melissa empowers the client to find what might be preventing them from accessing their true nature. This approach is aimed at the entire person - physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental. The therapeutic relationship invites the client to explore their own resources, their capacity for self-determination, and their own ability to improve their life.
She works with clients on a one-to-one basis with issues such as relationships, separation and divorce, depression, loss and bereavement, anxiety and panic attacks, sexuality, intimacy, anger, bullying, stress, trauma, work and career challenges, loneliness, loss of meaning or identity, self-esteem, weight loss, teenage anxiety, and personal development.
Melissa’s Mental Mindfullness low-cost counselling service provides a safe and confidential space for you to talk about the struggles, challenges, and unresolved issues which hold you back. Counselling allows you to take a deeper insight into why you might feel stuck, confused, lost, or unable to cope.
