Mel Stephenson

As a BACP accredited practitioner, I specialise in working with children and young people and hold the position of clinical lead in a large high school in East London, alongside my supervision, training and consultancy practice.


I have a masters in counselling and psychotherapy and a further diploma in child, adolescent and adult psychotherapy and counselling supervision. I’ve been in my current post, where I am also Head of Wellbeing, for the last seven years, alongside which I’m employed by several other schools, trusts, local authorities and private organisations who wish to expand or embed existing or new mental health and wellbeing services; this consultancy role fits well alongside the clinical supervision I so love to do.


I offer supervision to a wide range of professionals including school-based DSL/DDSL’s and mentors as well as counsellors and psychotherapists in a variety of fields. This individual work or group facilitation is a real passion of mine and complements the clinical work I continue to do myself as service lead, with children, adolescents and families. 


I have a specific research interest in ACES (adverse childhood experiences), toxic stress and trauma, in particular the effects of this on the body and long-term health and wellbeing outcomes.
