About me

My name is Michelle Spendlove - I'm a thirty-something wife, mother and Counsellor; and I'm passionate about helping people who want to help themselves . I'm a member of the BACP; offering a Person Centred counselling service in both Huddersfield & Mirfield. At the core of Person Centred counselling is the belief that the only person who knows what is best for you is you. In short - I believe that what people really need is a good listening to! I wont advise you on what choices to make; but I will use a range of counselling techniques in order for you to find your own solutions. By talking through your problems, at your own pace; you can gain the confidence to move forward in a positive way. It's about taking control of your life; whilst having someone non judgmental and caring there to help support you through the changes.

I work with a range of issues (listed below) If one of these problems is something you feel you would like support with, I offer a completely confidential counselling service, in a relaxing environment.
