Prepare Your Mind, Body and Mental Health…

Talk to a therapist

Life Events Counselling is run by Michelle Melia, an online Psychotherapist and Counsellor.

“In my experience more and more brides, grooms, their families, and friends are finding it extremely useful to talk with a therapist in the lead up to a wedding as feeling understood can reduce the feelings of struggle and confusion that may be experienced. Common concerns that my clients bring include postponed/ cancelled/ restricted weddings, family stress, grief, feeling overwhelmed, decision making difficulties, relationship strains, anxiety, and body image concerns.”
