About Meryn Addison
I run an online & remote practice working with clients all over the UK, working via webcam and via email.
I am particularly passionate about helping millennials and young people with the struggles that they face, using my experience as a millennial to inform my understanding.
I work collaboratively with you to support you in your emotional wellbeing, to help you develop skills in self-care and to foster a deeper understanding of yourself.
My role is to meet you where you are and support you in your growth and healing.
The way I work is integrative, which means I blend many psychological theories together in a unique way for each client. I listen to your story, then I help you to understand your story and together we find a way of retelling your story that gives different insights and perspectives. We won't solely focus on the difficult experiences you've been through, it is important that we process these and then find hope and a way to move forwards. My core approach is the person centred model, but I integrate aspects of humanistic, existential, psychodynamic and narrative therapy as and when they are needed in the process.
In a session with me you are allowed to be completely yourself and express to me whatever is on your mind. I will help you to explore your emotions and have an opportunity to look at things from a different perspective, and to not feel alone. I will be authentic with you in a session and allow myself to be human, and I hope that this will help you to be yourself with me also.
I believe that we all hold our own truth and answers within and that we all deserve the space and support needed to understand ourselves better and to overcome our insecurities. I believe that with the right nurturing and safe environment we can heal from hurt, grow and develop into the best versions of ourselves.
I have experience working with people from many different backgrounds with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, loss of identity, grief, bereavement, work stress, perfectionism, overwhelm, burn out and people pleasing. If you are feeling a little lost, and want to begin understanding yourself and your emotions better, please get in touch to find out how I can help you with your healing journey.
