About me

Hi, thank you for taking the time to look at my profile, my name is Michelle I'm a qualified integrative counsellor working with a holistic approach to suit the individual needs of my clients. I believe that therapy is unique for each individual, what works for one client may not work for another. I am an Integrative Counsellor, which means I can use various methods such as CBT/Person-centred and alike therapies for each individual to suit your needs. I offer short and long-term counselling and offer both day and evening sessions. I work with adults and young people alike both in-person and remotely via zoom

What can you expect from your session?

Counselling takes place in a peaceful therapy space in Whitstable Kent. I offer a non-judgemental space for individuals to make a difference in their life and to support you in re-framing the understanding of yourselves in a peaceful therapy space.

Choosing a counsellor

Choosing a counsellor that you feel comfortable with is an important part of the therapeutic relationship. I understand this can feel overwhelming,  I offer a free 30-minute consultation, which can be a phone call or email where you can talk about what you would like from counselling. This will enable you to know if I am the right person for you and if you are happy to continue we can set up a second session.

We are all unique, so working with a holistic and personalised approach allows my clients to be heard in a non-judgemental and safe space. My approach is inclusive and genuinely focused on helping you to create and maintain the changes you need to see in your life.
