Holistic Counselling and Psychotherapy
Struggling with grief, loss, anxiety, relationship issues? Are you stuck in the stress cycle? Or perhaps just feel overwhelmed and uncertain?
Emotional Mind Integration
Tried therapy but still suffering? Could there be unresolved trauma and pain affecting your life and blocking you from moving forward?
Feeling stuck? Unmotivated? Wanting to change your situation but unsure how? Need help to step out of your comfort zone?
Seeking the services of a therapist/counsellor/coach can be daunting, in a culture that celebrates quick fixes, toxic positivity, rug-sweeping and bypassing.
It’s a financial investment. An investment in time. An investment in trust. But most of all it’s an investment in YOU. How you show up for yourself and in the world. Your relationships. How you parent. Your self worth. Your ability to feel peace, happiness and love from within yourself.
There’s no greater investment than one that supports you to heal and grow.
It’s my mission to shine a light where your light has dimmed, supporting you to transform from the inside out.
Whether it be a recent struggle or an ongoing issue, my mission is to help you wade through the muddy waters, with a range of modalities and tools. We’ll work together to find what is best for you. Many people find themselves stagnating in life due to painful feelings and emotions which can cause overwhelm, anxiety, stress and depression. Most important thing to know is you don’t have to suffer alone.
Having trouble finding balance?
You’re not alone, and I’m here to help!
Did you know 90-95% of the time, our life is controlled by the beliefs and habits locked away in our subconscious minds? We may hold positive thoughts but they have very little influence on our life, because of the small 5-10% of the time we actually run with our conscious mind. This can and does have a huge impact on how we manage our emotions. How we relate to others. Our romantic relationships. What triggers us. And how we react and behave. Some of the belief systems we formed in our childhood, may no longer be healthy for us.
Finding a balance can be hard but taking control doesn’t have to be
Finding that inner balance and sorting through confusion, pain, loss, stress and trauma can take time and can be incredibly challenging. Some people struggle for years and try many therapists before finding the right person for them. Making the decision to work with someone and put your wellbeing and health as a priority, is the first step in taking your control back.
I saw Michelle to help me with the overwhelming grief I was suffering, having lost my brother. It was impacting every part of my life. Michelle explained the process of grief to me in a way I hadn’t really heard before. By listening compassionately and letting me just talk, sit in silence or cry, I felt that everything I was feeling was valid. Michelle was recommended to me by a friend who knew her and her work with Lifeline and I’m so glad I sought her support because she really helped me through one of the toughest things I’ve ever experienced.
I originally saw Michelle to help me deal with some relationship issues I was having with my daughter. What was uncovered through our sessions was my perception and beliefs about how things should be, were actually impacting the relationship I had with my daughter. I was at my wits end and was concerned my relationship with my daughter was permanently damaged. Michelle helped me see that with subtle tweaks in my reactions and approach to my daughter, I could improve the situation. It’s a work in progress but the changes have been significant and I finally feel positive about the direction our relationship is heading.
I sought help from Michelle for what I thought was a specific issue bothering me. I was feeling lost and stuck. In our first session Michelle used a technique on me that uncovered some feelings that had resulted in something that had happened in my childhood. I cannot express the release and sense of understanding I had as to why I had been struggling on and off for most of my adult life. She is compassionate but also empowered me with tools and support. Highly recommend.
I felt very comfortable and safe with Michelle. I’ve seen different therapists/coaches in the past but Michelle had a way of asking the right questions to make me really think and open up in ways I haven’t previously. She listens but rather than give advice, she provided support and space for me to look within myself. I felt validated and heard and that allowed me the confidence to go deeper, knowing she was there with the right support for me.
