Hi, my name's Melanie. It's a pleasure to meet you.
I'm an unconventional counsellor.
I'm a '75 baby so I saw the birth of PCs, hip-hop and the Internet during my teens. I got kicked out of the education system at sixteen and went to art school for a while before starting IContact with my best friend - Natasha Thomas.
When she died in the Glenbrook rail accident of 1999, I thought I would never recover. Add in a miscarriage, some heartbreak and homelessness and you get a picture of what I dealt with in my twenties.
At 27, I was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and given Zoloft. Neither the psychiatrist nor the drugs were a fit. I got my bachelors in sociology, a counselling degree, designed my own treatment and started offering my services in 2009 to people who needed someone to listen differently.
