Michelle has worked in a diverse range of settings with both clients and families, within the North West Probation Service, Merseyside Alcohol Services and the Eating Disorder Service. As part of this work she has worked with individuals and groups with complex disorders and early relational trauma which has helped her develop her skills in assessment formulation and intervention.

Michelle completed her Post graduate Diploma in 1996 and then went on to do an M.A. in Counselling research in 1997, to investigate the need for a Youth Counselling Service in the South Sefton Area. Michelle completed a Post- Graduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy (UKCP accredited) in 2011 at The Sherwood Institute (affiliated to Birmingham University), this was a 4 year course. Michelle passionately believes that it is good professional practice for psychotherapists to be committed to their own personal development and that it is a lifelong journey. It was one of her reasons for attending the course; to enhance her psychotherapeutic assessment and formulation skills as well as her own personal development.
