Hiya, my name is Michelle. Are you feeling alone, isolated or just generally down about your life? Do you want someone to talk to, and to be truly listened to? Then I am the therapist for you.
I realise that going into therapy can sometimes be a nerve wracking experience in itself; and finding the right therapist for YOU is extremely important.
I am very passionate about the work I do, hence the cheaper price.
I have had my share of difficulties in life as I am sure you have too. Throughout my journey to becoming a qualified therapist; through personal therapy and my training, I have realised just how empowering therapy can be.
For myself it was being offered a safe, confidential, warm place where I could express myself freely and safely. I was truly listened to with empathy, compassion and honesty, and I was accepted as myself with no judgement. Having never had this before I became more confident, my self-esteem grew, and my life no longer felt as if it was going in circles. I started healing!!
This is what I will offer YOU as I know it can be very cathartic. I believe that the relationship between us both is crucial for a good outcome, and that everyone has the capacity to heal themselves. I will not offer advice or personal opinions, but I will work with you to explore all avenues open to you.
I have over 150 hours face to face experience working with women who have been through sexual violence and domestic violence at WRSAC (Women’s rape and sexual abuse centre). I have also had experiences with rape, childhood sexual abuse, incest, bereavement, self-harm, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, PTSD, hearing voices, psychosis,financial abuse, emotional abuse and psychological abuse.

I am Cornish born and bred. I love dogs. I am a Taurus, so very down to earth. I have been told that I am easy to talk to. I have four children, so I completely understand the difficulties of juggling work and home life.
I offer 1 hour sessions which can be taken in a room or we could meet outside in nature and go for a walk together.
I AM LED BY YOU.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, I really hope that I hear from you.
