Dr Melanie Goulden
Counselling Psychologist

Dr Melanie Goulden

Dr Melanie Goulden is a psychologist at Priory Wellbeing Centre Fenchurch Street.

Melanie has previously worked within Priory hospitals in Kent and Bristol in adolescent inpatient services.

Melanie has over 14 years of experience working with mental health difficulties in a variety of settings, including NHS primary and secondary care, HM Prison Service and the private sector. Her comprehensive training, together with her experience, allows Melanie to combine a range of approaches and work flexibly.

She practises a collaborative therapy, which means working together with each person to understand their unique experiences, struggles and goals. She will encourage each person to increase their self-understanding and self-trust. She also provides the opportunity to develop the awareness and tools necessary to create desired and lasting changes.

Training

Dr Goulden is a chartered counselling psychologist accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and is registered as a practitioner psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Melanie is an accredited mediator, certified in mediation skills for alternative dispute resolution. She has also completed specialist training in CBT and in mindfulness.

Research interests

  • Melanie is currently involved in developing projects which are aimed at including emotional intelligence, leadership training and self-confidence building into the mainstream education system.
  • Melanie is passionate in her belief that society needs to actively prepare its young generations for life and relationships and that the mainstream education system should help to build emotional resilience and well-being.

Clinical articles and research papers

  • Melanie’s doctoral thesis researched the way in which people speak when they are not speaking. The study enquired into the ways that communication conveys without words.
  • Her research study for her Bachelors degree was aimed at understanding the stigma that can surround the uptake of mental health services.

My motivation to work in this field was born out of my belief that human beings can live their lives free from the influences and limitations that past experiences can create. My commitment is to support people to live a full, happy and meaningful life.
