Michelle is a qualified and experienced counsellor. She feels passionate about what she does and believes that therapy can enable her clients to explore their issues in a safe and non judgemental environment, where they are listened to, heard and understood.
Michelle has worked with couples and individual adults for over 20 years. She believes we all have times in our lives when we struggle to feel happy and satisfied for a whole range of reasons, and that with the right support, we can find a way to overcome these. She will work with you to help you understand and find your own answers to the problems facing you.
Michelle works with a whole range of presenting issues, anything that may be preventing you from enjoying your life and reaching your own goals and potential. She will use a range of ways to help you express your feelings and thoughts, and find solutions to your problems. Michelle offers counselling to individuals and couples.
As well as being well trained as a counsellor and/or therapist, Michelle firmly believes that respect, warmth and an understanding relationship is at the heart of effective counselling and therapy.
