How can I help you?
Sometimes, we struggle, and when we do, it can be helpful to talk to a professional about our problems.
I have over 15 years experience working alongside children, adolescents and young adults. I can support children and young people who struggle with a range of emotional and behavioural concerns: self-harm, low mood, anxiety, bullying, and issues related to sexual and gender identity. No matter how you identify, you and your struggles are welcome in my practice.
If you would like to talk to me before committing to an appointment, you are welcome to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello, I am Michelle, and I am a qualified and registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, MBACP. I work alongside children, adolescents and young adults. I adhere to BACP ethical guidelines.
I have a Master's degree in Child and Adolescent Psychotherapeutic Counselling, from the University of Cambridge, and a degree in Social Work and Psychology from the University of Cape Town.
Further study includes: Self-harm, LGBTQ, Gender Diversity, Eating Disorders and Depression in Adolescents. I have undertaken training with Gendered Intelligence in Working Alongside Trans, Gender Diverse and Questioning People and further study with Pink Therapy. I am listed in both organisations' directories as an approved therapist.
In my work with LGBTQ clients I position myself as an ally. Sexual and gender diversity is not in itself a reason to seek therapy; you are not 'unwell' if you identify other than heterosexual or cisgender*. I can support you if you are struggling with issues around your sexuality or gender. I am a cisgender woman and my pronouns are she/her.
Cisgender, or cis: when a person's gender identity matches the sex they were assigned at birth.
My experience has been gained across a range of settings from community work to one-to-one counselling, within schools and private practice. I have experience working with a wide age range; from age 4 to young adults, and with a variety of mental health concerns.
