Registered Counselling Psychologist based in Woodbury, Devon, UK

Registered with The Health & Care Professions Council, the British Psychological Society and Division of Counselling Psychology



 My name is Dr Melanie Maynard and I am a Registered Counselling Psychologist running a private practice in Woodbury, Devon. I have recently relocated from Weybridge, Surrey, where I have been running a successful and busy practice for 4 years. I have been offering therapy to clients for over a decade and I am experienced in working with adults and couples struggling with a range of difficulties including: 

  • Low mood/depression
  • Worry/anxiety/panic attacks/phobias/health anxiety
  • Work-related or other stress
  • Relationship/marital problems
  • Divorce adjustment (Specialism)
  • Addiction (Specialism in treating Problem Gambling)
  • Baby blues/post natal depression (Special Interest)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Low self-esteem
  • Recent or past trauma/PTSD/abuse
  • Interpersonal, attachment and adjustment difficulties
  • Eating disorders
  • Self-harm


If you are struggling with any of these difficulties, then I may be able to help you. I benefit from being able to offer four types of therapy that I can integrate flexibly according to your needs. I can offer both short- and long-term therapy, and can tailor the therapy to your needs and goals. See Therapy for more information. I can offer Skype therapy where it is deemed appropriate and beneficial. I have also co-facilitated a weekly Post-Natal Depression Support Group in Guildford. Please see for more information. When we feel stressed, worried or low it is often hard for us to know what we need to do to help us feel better. I am therefore happy to offer a free telephone consultation to help you decide if I am the right therapist for you. Please use my Booking Page to make an enquiry.
