About

Sometimes people get stuck. Individuals and couples come to me for counselling to talk about a variety of problems - things like conflict in relationships, anxiety, depression, overwhelming stress, abuse, grief, vocational crisis, or anger. A counselling relationship helps people to move from understanding issues to co-creating solutions - solutions that shrink and manage problems. I use an integrative approach, drawing on different counselling methods depending on what works best for the client, including practices from cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), narrative therapy, and solution-based therapy. I can help you to move through difficult times with courage, accountability, and positive resolve.
I do both individual and couple counselling, and specialize in couples. I have extended training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Emotionally Focussed Couple Therapy, and Gottman Method Therapy. It is helpful for humans to know they do not have to work through pain and problems alone. Additional information at mikemelles.ca
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with over 18 years of experience counselling adults, with a focus on couples. I began my career as a teacher, and have a Master of Education in Counselling. When not with clients, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing guitar or cycling.
