What To Expect

Counselling & Coaching Approach

In whatever capacity Melanie is operating in, the starfish principle would best describe Melanie Hart's life and work philosophy. And that is Every One Counts.

With exceptionally unique life experiences, diverse professional expertise, plus a predisposition of genuineness, curiosity, creativity, and passion, individuals from all walks of life have benefited from working with Melanie.

Melanie draws from the Person-Centred and Adlerian Approaches, with brief and timely infusions of the Psychodynamic / Psychoanalytical as well as Existential, Feminist and Gestalt Approaches and techniques. For those seeking out leadership and life coaching, Melanie's theoretical approach and techniques are drawn from Solution-Focussed and Reality Therapy. Sessions are client-driven, using a collaborative, invested approach, and with a view to establishing goals and objectives for measurable results. Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques are also integrated into the change process when clients desire new ways of thinking and want to change or improve poor behaviors that will result in healthier habits for new beginnings, healthy endings, and a hopeful future.

Melanie is skilled and experienced in custom workshop design and group facilitation for leadership and soft skills building, as well as psycho-educational topics in groups of all sizes in both the non-profit and for-profit sector.
