It is astonishing how elements that seem insoluble become soluble when someone listens.

Hi, I'm Michele 

I became a counsellor after facing my own personal struggles and difficulties around mental health. I wanted to help people to find healing for their pain, improve their mental well being or to address difficulties in their life..

I'm a down to earth person, who will do my best to make you feel comfortable, and will treat you with honesty, openness and true feeling. I am on your side, and I will do my very best to help you with your counselling journey.
I work from a private room in my home. I do also have a dog in the house so please be mindful of this if you have any allergies.

My counselling Practice is located in Croxley Green, Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire.


In addition to my private practice, I counsel within an organisation that supports people who have been effected by sexual assault and abuse. 

*Online and Telephone Counselling
* Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
*Level 3 Counselling Studies
*Level 2 in Counselling skills
*Level 2 in Awareness of Mental health Problems

I attend regular clinical supervision, hold professional liability insurance and am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), abiding by their ethical code of conduct. I regularly undertake further training. 

How Can I help?

If you're visiting my page then perhaps you feel there's something in your life that's troubling you?

Perhaps it's something specific like a bereavement, or an issue in a relationship, or perhaps you have experienced some kind of trauma.

Are you feeling anxious, irritable or angry. Perhaps you may be sad or disappointed?

Whatever it is that you may be feeling, your feelings are valid and they are important.

Your story matters and It is OK to seek some help to make sense of whatever may be troubling you.

Giving yourself that bit of time and space to work through your thoughts and feelings can give you a better sense of what you need, and want to give you greater quality of life. 

Taking the first step towards counselling may be difficult. With this in mind please feel free to fill out the contact form, email, phone or text me if you have any questions about starting therapy. 

How Much Does A Session Cost?

There is of course no obligation to take up counselling after this call.
