Melissa Harte B App Sci (Med Lab Sci); Grad Dip (Psych); B Sci (Hons) Psych.

"Melissa Harte is a fully registered psychologist. She works primarily with young people and adults who struggle to make sense of their lives after experiencing grief and loss. Her clients include individuals and couples who want to improve their communication and relationships or who suffer from depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), dissociative processes and other psychological disturbances that may have arisen through various forms of child abuse.

Melissa works in a person-centred and holistic way with a depth of compassion rarely experienced. People find themselves trusting her and wanting to be in her presence.

She herself has traversed the hard road and understands the rock formations you may encounter along the way. Her life experience as a single mother of three children, returning to study as a mature age student, has shaped her exceptional ability to find the right experiential process for each part of the journey. She is able to truly understand the way your body has processed meaning and emotion and then help you to understand and adjust your ways of living in order to bring about genuine change."
