Melissa Doman, M.A.
Mental Health @ Work Speaker + Consultant
Ex-Mental Health Therapist
Unlike most consultants & speakers on the market, Melissa has formal psychological clinical education & training. This has given her the research and theoretical knowledge of how to create tangible change within people from a scientific perspective through:
Master's Degree in Counselling Psychology from Adler University: the clinical/diagnostic science of the human condition, brain, behavior, thoughts, & emotions
Bachelor's Degree in Sociology & Communications from The George Washington University : the study of people & how they communicate
Several years of work experience as a clinically licensed mental health diagnostician and counselling therapist
Translating her clinical and counselling education as a framework in how she views people and the growth process
Following several years of clinical work as a mental health therapist in universities, EAPs, and private practise - Melissa left the clinical sector and turned her focus to the worlds of organisational psychology and mental health awareness for local and global companies & organisations. Having lived on 4 continents and travelled to more than 40 countries, Melissa calls upon her experiences working with professionals from around the world for a nuanced approach to openly discussing mental health. She has been featured as a subject matter expert in digital publications like Abroad101.com, on T.V. shows in the U.S., and as a panelist at Google U.K. discussing practical and inclusive conversations around mental health.
She has served in roles as a consultant, coach, and advisor in the fields of behavior change, employee wellbeing, and leadership development.
Melissa is deeply passionate about workplace mental health awareness + stress management and normalising these topics in businesses and organisations across the U.K. and the world. She provides consulting, coaching, and keynote speaking services to a variety of national and multi-national companies, organisations, and nonprofits. Over the course of her 10-year career, she has impacted thousands of people through her work.
She has a desire-on-fire to help businesses on how to: practically nurture their team members and culture through a mentally healthy, inclusive, and balanced work culture.
