Rhodes Alumni Counsellor & Life Coach Directory

We are honoured to bring you a list of our graduates who have chosen to list their services on our Alumni Directory. All of our graduates have received significant training to help them become professional coaches and counsellors. Directory listing does not guarantee their ability to help every individual and Rhodes Wellness College does not guarantee the work of every graduate. We always urge potential clients to find the best counsellors and coaches that work for their unique situations.

Hello and welcome. My name is Melanie and I am a Registered Professional Counsellor candidate with the Canadian Professional Counsellors Association. I provide a warm, welcoming, and safe space for clients to express and move towards their therapeutic goals. The space I offer is inclusive, non-judgmental and anchored in compassion and presence. My approach is both collaborative and tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual. I have a heartfelt interest and additional training in somatic and body-based therapies which incorporates mindfulness practices, breathwork and movement with an emphasis on nervous system regulation. I work with people navigating a range of life experiences including but not limited to: anxiety, depression, developmental trauma, grief, self-esteem and existential concerns of meaning and purpose. I work from a trauma informed lens that focuses on client consent and personal agency. I honour the strengths, expertise and resilience of my clients to help facilitate the creation of space for healing and connection.
Currently I run an online private practice from my home in Nelson, B.C. If you are curious what it may be like to work together, please reach out to set up a free 20-minute discovery call.
