“I’ve been a client of Michaela’s since my early twenties. She’s always been professional and reliable – and I particularly enjoy her holistic, relaxed approach. Now in my early thirties, there is no doubt that working with her has enabled me to articulate what I want from my life and make that happen.”
Meet our Counsellors, Psychotherapists and Psychosexual & Relationship Consultants
Michaela is an integrative practitioner, meaning she has combined many therapeutic theories and has developed her own style of working as a therapist. Above all, she believes that the most important part of therapy is the relationship between client and therapist, and that this relational process enables developmental growth and change.
Initially, Michaela will meet clients for an assessment. If both agree to work together, she then offers the client a further five sessions. After the initial six sessions, there is a discussion to review the process of the clinical work and to decide if therapy will continue into a longer-term agreement. Michaela specialises in longer-term therapy for individuals and works with couples for up to one year.
Although Michaela has a lot of experience of working with couples supporting them to engage better with communication and intimacy, she values the importance of the couple’s sexuality and creates a safe place for both partners to develop their trust for each other.
