Michelle is a qualifeied integrated Counsellor and trainer with over a decade of experence working with both adults and children using a range of theraputic techniques and approach that are personalised to each individual client.
Counselling can help you understand difficulties and confusing emotions that may feel overwhelming or are causing you concern so that you are able to choose how best to deal with them.
Michelle believes the relationship between clients and herself are very important and that Counselling works best when you feel supported, heard and not judged enabling you to have the opportunity to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in a safe environment, working together at your pace exploring your unique experience of the world.
Michelle's aim is to support you and to enable you to move to a place where counselling is no longer required and giving you the tools to take with you when the counselling space is no longer needed.
The first appointment is an initial consultation where you will be given the opportunity to discuss your current situation. You will then be able to decide if you wish to continue or you may have felt the initial assessment was sufficient.
Michelle offers short and long term face to face counselling and realizes the first step to contacting a Counsellor can feel daunting. Michelle will be respectful and trust that you are able to decide if she is the Counsellor to best support you.
If you would like to make an appointment for an initial consultation you can contact Michelle by telephone and or email.
