About me

Hello, thank you for taking the time to read my profile. My name is Michelle, and I am a registered integrative counsellor.

Are you currently struggling? feel like life is overwhelming you? Are you feeling sad anxious, lonely, stuck? Maybe you need help moving forward from hurt or have experienced trauma? Perhaps you are in a relationship and have issues with commitment or infidelity and would like relationship or couples counselling? whatever the issue! I am here to listen and support you by providing a safe friendly environment and non-judgmental space for you to feel heard and to explore your issues, whether past or present. As an integrative counsellor I will use a range of approaches to help and support your understanding of the issue and we will work together towards a happier version of yourself.

Training, qualifications & experience

As an integrative counsellor I have experience of dealing with a lot of highly complexed issues. I have an accredited couples counselling qualification, and I have over 10 years’ experience in building self-esteem and confidence, as well as working with children and families.
I am a skilled trainer and deliver various training workshops on mindset and empowerment, moving forward, as well a parental conflict and safeguarding.

Member organisations

ACC

Association for Christian Counsellors

The Association of Christian Counsellors is a professional body representing and setting standards for Christian counselling and care in the UK.

The organisation is made up of various different membership categories, including Counsellor and Accredited, and requires all members working as counsellors to undertake Continuous Professional Development on a regular basis.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
