About Me

Michele (She, Her)

Welcome to Lavender Lane Counselling.

Taking the first step towards seeking support is a courageous move, and I would be honoured to be part of your journey.

With a background in integrative counselling  I bring a wealth of knowledge and a compassionate approach to my practice. I've had the privilege of working with diverse individuals facing a range of challenges.

I believe in the power of empathy, active listening, and collaboration.   Together, we can uncover insights, foster resilience, and create positive change.

Your Journey Matters:

Your story is unique, and I'm here to honour and support it. Whether you're navigating personal relationships, coping with stress, or facing a major life transition, I am committed to helping you discover the strength within yourself.

Beyond the Counselling Room:

Outside of my counselling practice, I love to read, play computer games and going on adventures. It's important for me to lead a balanced life, as I believe personal well-being contributes to professional effectiveness.

Let's Begin Your Journey:

If you're ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery and growth, I'm here to support you. Feel free to email me. Remember, taking this step is a sign of strength, and I'm here to walk with you.

Thank You:

Thank you for considering Lavender Lane Counselling  as a resource on your path to well-being. I look forward to the opportunity to work together and support you on your journey.

Therapy can sometimes feel difficult and uncomfortable. Why wouldn't, it when we are letting our painful, sore bits be seen.

But it can also feel safe, comforting, and healing, and really can make so much difference in our lives.

My therapy style is warm and gentle and I will do my best to make you feel comfortable, and  will treat you with honesty, openness, and true feeling.

My Experience

Alongside my private practice, I work within an organisation that offers counselling to young people and adults who have experienced sexual assault or abuse.

I also attend regular clinical supervision, hold professional liability insurance, and I'm a member of the National Counselling Society (NCS), abiding by their ethical code of conduct.

 

I regularly undertake further training so that I can keep up to date with new research and provide the best care. This has included specialist Sexual Abuse Trauma training, Suicide and Self Harm, creative counselling techniques and working with the inner child.
