Michelle started her counselling career 18 years ago initially training with Relate for 3 years before completing her counselling degree. Further training followed, culminating in accreditation with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and an enhanced study program to qualify as a supervisor of other counsellors.


Michelle has two companies Counselling with Care and Mediation with Care. Counselling with Care was created when Michelle identified existing services were unable to meet the demands of providing counselling in schools and a lack of options for individuals within the private sector. Michelle engaged with her network of counsellors who joined Michelle in providing the therapeutic service that schools in an around the Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells area required. Through word of mouth and recommendations this expanded year on year to meet the demands of therapeutic intervention.


Michelle has vast experience working with couples, individuals, and children in a therapeutic setting. Michelle decided to expand this knowledge and utilise her skills in other areas. Michelle once again embarked on an extensive training course to become a family mediator and upon completion created a sister company Mediation with Care. Michelle provides family mediation in a safe and relaxed environment. Her experience enables Michelle to work with clients on any possible conflict or breakdown in the relationship, and crucially is able to do this in an empathic, understanding and informative way, drawing on her wealth of counselling experience.
