Psychotherapist – Trauma Specialist
Michelle is a Gestalt Psychotherapist with a passion to help adults experiencing interpersonal and relationship issues, trauma and/or abuse (including domestic family violence), anxiety and depression, or those who are seeking personal growth and connection.
Inspired by contemporary Gestalt practice, Michelle has a holistic, relational, client centred approach. In short she works with a deep empathic connection to your needs and embodied experiences. Her interest in mental health was sparked through Equine Assisted Therapy for trauma (adolescents and adults), which she continues practice with her horse in Country Victoria.
Before joining the Mind Up team, Michelle was working in private practice and community clinic for several years. She also has direct experience as a specialist trauma counsellor for a domestic family violence and sexual assault support service which places her as Mind Up’s trauma therapist working with victims of crime.
When not at Mind Up Michelle works with her horse offering Equine Assisted Therapy which can also be integrated with your room-based sessions.
