Welcome to Lothian Therapy, my name is Melanie Phillips and I am a therapist and supervisor based in Dunbar, East Lothian and I also see clients via Skype and Zoom.
For many years I suffered from panic attacks, depression, anxiety (including phobias) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), so please know that I understand how life limiting these conditions can be. For me the worse time was whilst working in the NHS as a Contracts Manager alongside juggling family issues and bereavement.
The majority of my clients have issues such as panic attacks, depression, anxiety and also grief. Also lack of self confidence and being unable to deal with unwanted and intrusive thoughts. Things I have dealt with on a personal level so can understand fully what they are going through.
Finding Cognitive Hypnotherapy helped me to realise that nothing has to be the way it has always been and I am so pleased that I trained to become a Quest trained Cognitive Hypnotherapist. I have since trained as a supervisor for other therapists, something which I enjoy immensely.

I am a member of a number of governing professional bodies, which are all listed on my website, and I would urge you to confirm that any therapist you decide to see has professional qualifications and belongs to such organisations.
It is always good to remember that nothing has to be the way it’s always been.
Training, qualifications & experience
As a therapist and supervisor I maintain a high standard of practice with Continuing Practice Development, this involves writing, running and attending training courses, lectures and researching the latest developments.
I trained at the Quest Institute, http://www.questinstitute.co.uk/, Trevor Silvester the creator and trainer of cognitive hypnotherapy. This short video explains cognitive hypnotherapy, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZJQsCKifYk&feature=youtu.be
I have also trained in Emtional Freedom Techique (EFT) and Eye Movement Integration Plus (EMIPlus) which is used widely for PTSD.
