Hi. My name is Michelle and I am a registered counsellor specialising in working with children and young people. I also work with many adults. I have a practice in central Reading and work online where appropriate. I am passionate about building resilience and self-esteem, promoting confidence and emotional wellbeing. I recognise that for young people, adolescence can be a scary time with many changes both emotionally and physically. The opportunity to talk to someone outside of the family unit where they can be heard and valued can be invaluable.

I have been described as speaking fluent child and with almost three decades of working with children and families in various capacities, I have come to understand that love, compassion, and co-regulation are the essential elements to healing and self-actualization.
My passion is to help children of all ages who may feel anxious; emotionally dysregulated; and mentally and physically exhausted feel at ease again in their bodies, their mind, their surroundings and their relationships. Alongside this, I support worried parents by empowering them to change the dynamics of their family in order to redress the balance and bring about harmony once again. It is crucial as a practitioner to view your family construct individually, to form a relationship with your family members and to create a bespoke package of treatment that you all feel comfortable with.

If you're struggling to find the right counsellor, or have any questions about the process of starting counselling - whether it be for you or as a parent/guardian for your child - email me and we can work this out together.
Sometimes it can all feel like too much. When you're struggling to keep up with day to day pressures, you can wake up feeling anxious about the day, before it has even started. You can feel angry and frustrated at those around you, sometimes for the most insignificant things. You can stay awake at night replaying everything you feel you've ever done wrong and wondering when you'll ever feel at peace again. It doesn't seem to make sense, and you feel exhausted and frazzled just thinking about it. Well, I'm here to listen and I'd like to be able to give you the space to piece this all together.

I work with adults, children and young people across Oxfordshire, and in other locations via online sessions. In line with clinical psychology philosophy, I work by integrating science, psychological theory, and clinical skills/knowledge to my everyday practice of helping others. I have experience of working with people from all walks of life who have been struggling with complex psychological difficulties, often for many years. The stress of life does not make us abnormal, often how we feel, and what we experience is a reflection of what we have been through. These are times when we may need help to work through our problems.

Hello and welcome to my profile. I am an experienced empathic counsellor based in Reading. I work for a youth charity (11-25yrs) called Time To Talk West Berkshire based in Newbury. At the heart of therapy lies collaboration and empathy. This is important for building trust and working through issues. Life is full of challenges and sometimes we need someone to turn to when we are stuck. It can be helpful to talk to someone who isn’t a family or friend.

I offer a free 20 minute face to face consultation at my clinic based in Central Wokingham. This gives us an opportunity to meet and talk about what it is that you are looking to gain from counselling and discuss how the process works. Entering counselling can feel like a daunting process but at this very moment you are taking the first steps towards creating the changes you wish to see in your life whether you are looking for help with a specific issue, or for personal growth. Counselling offers you the opportunity to break down walls, un-bottle hidden emotions and make sense of feelings and experiences that are troubling you.

Child Counsellors
Child psychologists in Reading, ENG provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Reading build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
