Meet Me- Melanie Shobha (Licensed Counsellor)

Melanie Shobha- Aspire Counselling Services

I am Melanie Shobha a licensed counsellor and an educator. I started my career being an educator in school.  In my experience I came across students and parents facing difficulties which varied from parenting issues to children’s social, emotional and learning difficulties.

At that moment of time, I felt it was important for me to study about human behaviour in order to help people. I had completed Masters in Education (specialisation in Educational Psychology), where I  studied  some aspect about psychology and philosophy. To further my interest, I pursued Advanced Diploma in Counselling and Masters in Counselling.

I began my counselling career by volunteering at Befrienders (Suicide Prevention helpline). I am also involved as a volunteer and team leader  for Expressive Sandwork Projects. I am passionate about helping people and contribute to the community.

 

As a Therapist, I am here to look into your needs, provide a safe and secured environment with assured confidentiality and positive regard.
