Melanie Phillips


Welcome to Lothian Therapy, my name is Melanie Phillips, I am a supervisor and therapist based in Dunbar, East Lothian and see clients via 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, bereavement and caring for family members.
The majority of my clients have issues such as panic attacks, depression, anxiety which can manifest itself as phobias, 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.
This short video explains cognitive hypnotherapy
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.
