Michelle provides a supportive and nurturing environment for her clients, assisting them in gaining greater clarity and awareness of what is holding them back. Limiting patterns, behaviours and past experiences often present as anxiety, emotional distress and tension. Using this awareness can empower clients to turn their lives around and make lasting changes.
Michelle has an innate ability to work with clients on any emotional,
physical or mental health issues they may be experiencing.

Michelle is an experienced Aged Care and Disability Support Worker, former Ethics Teacher and Lifeline crisis counsellor who has specialised in trauma and PTSD work. She supports frontline emergency services workers who experience trauma daily.
She offers a safe and supportive space for clients to develop an understanding of themselves and how they relate to others. She empowers clients to come to an awareness of how unresolved hurts limit current life experiences, deplete vitality and lead to stress and exhaustion.
In these sessions, clients can develop new patterns and ways of being, thus giving them the space to live a more purposeful, joyful and harmonious life.
Sessions are for one hour and are available for adults, children, families and groups.
Working with Michelle has helped me enormously improve my mental health and well-being in a range of areas. From assisting a speedy recovery from the stress of a double knee operation to helping gain greater clarity, emotional stability, calmness and grounding in all aspects of my personal and work life. She is now an integral part of my own self care and most often my first point of call when I am in pain or struggling in life. I highly recommend her.
