About Melanie

I help equip musicians and performing artists for a sustained career and solid mental health.

I am a qualified counsellor and an experienced coach specialising in performing arts. I have extensive experience in the music industry as a singer-songwriter myself and have toured and travelled the States and the UK with my albums. My experience in the industry lends deep insights to my clients’ needs as an all round performing artist. I have helped artists regain confidence, change perspectives and regain a sense of self through identity work.

I released my book ‘Facing My Own Music’ which gives an inside view to the effects of the music industry. I cover topics of validation and conformity and expose some people who
I have worked with.

I have a track record of assisting clients within the field of show biz assisting a range of issues that can block or sabotage the artist. I cover past trauma issues to relationships, stage fright, auditions, tours, and coping with media/public eye. I locate the core issue and work with my clients’ needs. Often it is a mindset issue and a question of reprogramming thoughts to create new experiences.

“Mel is a person-centred/humanistic counsellor combining her methods as she draws on psychodynamic theories. She heavily tuned in to my difficulties of speaking publicly. She created a bespoke service to help overcome my anxieties. It really helped that she’s an artist too..Highly recommended!” - Anonymous artist

I am now available for face-to-face coaching and counselling and can work remotely.

You can see Mel on her YouTube Channel Facing Mels Music and hear her podcasts on Spotify. As a musician, Mel’s songs can be found on Spotify under Mel Golding.
