The secret to change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new.

Beliefs feel true, that's their job, but it doesn't mean they are. Choose to believe something better, and don't stop until you do.

Nothing has to be the way it’s always been.

Lothian Therapy


Everything said in the therapy room stays in the therapy room.

No Judgement

There is no judgement within the therapy room, we’ve all made mistakes.


Nothing has to be the way it’s always been.


This is your life, your decisions, your choices, why not make it the best possible?

Welcome to Lothian Therapy founded by Melanie Phillips DipCHyp, NLP(Master Prac), HPD, MNCH. A solution focussed, practical therapist Melanie helps others to find ways to break the unhelpful patterns of behaviours they find themselves in.

By focussing on specific issues that include IBS, depression, anxiety, stress and pain management, Melanie uses not only her therapy qualification skills but also draws on own personal experiences, as she understands how life limiting these conditions can be.

Based in Dunbar, East Lothian Melanie works with clients both in person and online via Zoom allowing them to remain in the comfort of their own home.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a modern approach to therapy, utilising a wide range of techniques in addition to hypnosis and can help with a number of issues not normally associated with hypnotherapy.
