Michelle is a parent of a son with Autism Spectrum Disorder
Michelle has extensive experience in the area of Autism, ADHD and ODD, having parented a now 22-year-old son who was diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (level 2), a mild intellectual disability, ADHD, ODD, language and learning delay, severe behavioural issues and anxiety. This gives her first-hand insight into the challenges that parents and carers face daily. Michelle's son attended 11 different educational settings in 13 years. He now lives independently and is working full-time.
Michelle has been supporting my son Adam with behaviour counselling through the NDIS. Adam was diagnosed with Autism and ADHD two years ago. When we first met Michelle, my son's behaviour was out of control; he was aggressive, depressed and having suicidal thoughts. There was conflict both at home and at school. It was very challenging for Adam and the whole family. Michelle supported us in implementing some strategies at home so we could start working together as a team. She also supported Adam in empowering himself at school with the bullying issues he was experiencing. This started to work straight away, and the bullying stopped. Adam has gone from being defiant and oppositional to wanting to help around the house, and he is now okay to go to school, too. I also feel more empowered and enjoy Adam's company; such a massive shift in just a few short months.
Caring and comprehensive behaviour support
As part of Michelle's approach to working with people experiencing a disability, client interaction includes a thorough intake and assessment process. This may include behaviour implementation, monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of the plan and making changes as needed. This requires reviewing strategies to ensure that the client's quality-of-life outcomes are achieved.
Through her experience with clients and specialist training over many years, Michelle meets all the core capabilities required by the NDIS as a Behaviour Counsellor.
Michelle participates in regular counselling supervision and exceeds the minimum expected requirements every year. She is committed to life-long learning, ongoing professional development and regularly participates in self-reflection and reflective practice under supervision. She is currently a Level 2 member accredited with the Australian Counselling Association (ACA) and committed to keep developing her professional skills and lived experience. She is currently enrolled in a Bachelor of Counselling with the AIPC with a goal to further expand her knowledge and deepen her purpose.
