About Us

At MelanomaMe. CIC and Melanoma-Me Foundation we offer a free supportive environment for patients and carers of Malignant Melanoma and other skin cancers.

🦋 Hi and thank you for visiting our page 🦋

Firstly let us introduce ourselves. We are Kerry and Elaine the Co-Founders and managing directors of MelanomaMe. CIC and Melanoma-Me Foundation (charity no. 1183479). We have a team of 8 counsellors, all with a high level of awareness of Melanoma/skin cancer and the affects a diagnosis and the aftermath can have on patients and their loved ones. 

Both Kerry and Elaine have personal experiences of Melanoma from a patient and friends perspective. We truly understand the complexities of this diagnosis – as well as the impact it has on mental and physical health. We are both counsellors with BA Honours and Foundation Degrees in counselling – as well as certificates in Hypnotherapy, NLP, Assertiveness Training, Emotional Resilience, Suicide Prevention, Mindfulness and Dementia Awareness.

All of our counsellors are very down to earth and approachable. Our counselling takes place at Melanoma-Me Foundation, Newtown Industrial Estate, Birtley, Gateshead, Tyne & Wear, DH3 2QW

Although we are based in Birtley, we provide support and awareness throughout the North East of England.
