Michelle adopts a holistic approach to counselling and psychotherapy as she believes the integration of the body, mind, feelings and spirit lead to personal empowerment, more satisfying relationships and a richer and fuller life experience. She specialises in helping clients who are struggling with the legacy of trauma/wounding that has been experienced in their family, to re-connect with themselves and others using mindfulness and body oriented therapies (including trauma-sensitive yoga).

My goal is to guide and support you through the challenges that you are currently facing so you can be more at ease with emotions that previously distressed or scared you, let go of self-limiting beliefs or behaviours, have more choice and make decisions with clarity and ultimately access increased energy so that you can have the relationships you want.
Since everyone is different, we will work together to discover your own answers and solutions so that you can achieve your desired outcome. Depending on your specific needs I will utilise a wide range of theories and techniques that will give you the freedom to be the real you and empower you to live a full and vibrant life with a deeper sense of meaning and purpose.
Before setting up my private practice I provided counselling and psychotherapy to clients at several low cost clinics in the inner eastern suburbs and the lower north shore of Sydney. For three years I was also an after hours volunteer counsellor for ACON (the AIDS Council of New South Wales) in Surry Hills.
I now work with individuals and couples in Woollahra and run workshops that help you release blocked energy and emotions, become more connected to your bodily sensations and emotional and intellectual experiences, develop a sense of groundedness and self-compassion, and improve your emotional wellbeing during the busy or difficult times in your life.

I believe that after food, water and shelter, the relationship we have with ourselves and others directly influences the quality of our lives. While relationships can often bring up distressing emotions such as shame, anxiety, loneliness and deep sadness and pain, they are also a source love and joy and the place where healing of past hurts can occur. My intention is to develop a relationship with you that is compassionate, respectful and honest so that you feel seen, accepted and understood....
