More about Luke

Something people are often confused by is my Greek surname. “You don’t look greek!” they say. Actually, I was born in Bangkok, but I was adopted into a Greek/Australian family when I was 3 months old, so that explains the surname. I grew up in Adelaide, SA but now call Melbourne my home.   I’ve been told more than once that I’m an easy person to confide in, consequently I’ve always had a lot of friends and family come to me with challenges or seeking advice. For this reason, being a psychologist seemed to feel right for me. While I must confess, it is an incredibly challenging occupation, the reward of joining people on a path of self discovery and growth is one that makes it all worthwhile. I’m pleased to say that almost everyday I am inspired by my client’s journeys. They make me believe that there is hope for everyone, no matter how severe their challenges, to lead a fulfilling and happy life.

Melissa has a doctoral degree in Health Psychology and believes in ‘sharpening her saw’, so takes part in ongoing training.  She has learnt (and continues to learn) from leading experts in the area of trauma, such as Janina Fisher and Pat Ogden (Sensorimotor Psychotherapy), and in the field of couple therapy, Stan Tatkin (Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT)).  She is influenced by Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach, who are both world renowned teachers of Buddhism and meditation. Melissa’s areas of expertise:

  • Anxiety
  • Trauma, including complex trauma and PTSD
  • Relationship issues

  • Adjustment to chronic health conditions (e.g., chronic fatigue, pain)
  • Body image and eating disorders

What can you expect from working with Melissa?

  • A safe space, which is fundamental for any healing or processing of trauma to occur
  • Tracking your progress in every session to make sure you are moving towards your goals
  • An experience involving mindful awareness of patterns (e.g., cognitive, behavioural, physical, and/or emotional), especially those that are self-limiting

As Moshe Feldenkrais says, “When you know what you are doing, you can do what you want”
