Melissa is one of few therapists in the country to have received training from American clinician and researcher Stan Tatkin. Founder of the PACT Training Institute, he pioneered the PACT method - Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy, an approach Melissa has used in her practice for over six years. She was asked by Dr Tatkin to be a PACT Ambassador in Australia for the PACT Institute in 2020, to write about the PACT approach and present at mental health workshops and trainings.
Melissa also uses Transactional Analysis as a strong basis to her work as a counsellor and psychotherapist.
Working both professionally and ethically is an important requirement in effective psychotherapy relationships. I am in consistent supervision and learning environments that help me reflect on the quality of work I am doing with my clients. I update my training on an ongoing basis and am always receptive to new, more beneficial ways to practice.
