Training, qualifications & experience
Hi my name is Natalie Melia and I am a fully qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist. Solution Focus Brief Therapy is the main therapeutic approach that I use in order to help my clients make significant positive changes in their lives.
I love introducing my clients to this positive and empowering approach, because as it suggests SFBT focuses on solution building rather than problem solving. Helping you to find the best solutions to any difficulties you are experiencing rather than analysing the past and the problems that prompted you to seek change.
This forward looking approach will help you to visualise and achieve a more fulfilled and enjoyable present and future. Enabling you to gain the confidence and motivation to change your life for the better and take steps towards achieving your goals and overcoming (or certainly coping much better with) any difficulties.
You will gain valuable knowledge of how the brain works and the different tools that you can use to look after your mind and emotional health.
This is all done in a relaxing and enjoyable way, especially as it is also cemented through the use of hypnosis.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is widely recognised as a very effective, safe psychotherapeutic tool. It utilises the trance state (a natural brain wave pattern that we enter into many times a day) to help to reduce anxiety and encourage positive neural change. This is done very simply through relaxation and visualisation, allowing clients to focus their attention on uplifting thoughts and the positive aspects of their life. This encourages a shift in perspective and helps to assist the brain in finding solutions-supporting further positive life changes.
I offer a caring, gentle and professional approach. There are times in most of our lives that we need someone to come alongside us and support us in getting back on track & making positive changes. It is a privilege to be able to do that with my clients and assist them on their journey towards living an abundant life.

I trained at The Clifton Practice in Bristol, a recognised Centre of Excellence for hypnotherapy. I was awarded the Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy Diploma (DHP) & Solution Focused Hypnotherapy Diploma (DSFH), which is considered to be the gold standard in hypnotherapy training.
I also have an extended CRB check status to enable me to work with children and teenagers.
I continue to study and attend lectures in order to keep up-to-date of any advancements in the field.
