Michelle has been involved in mental health work for over 25 years. She has worked in the NHS and with various charities, specialising in depression, anger, anxiety, addiction, relationship problems and bereavement. Michelle developed a new model of therapy for treatment of psychotics within the NHS. Her approach is psychoanalytic, with an emphasis on the meaningful relationship between the patient and the analyst, who curiously engage with the painful problem, symptom, or difficult behaviour. Both client and therapist work together to make valuable improvements to the client’s emotional world, within a stable, consistent setting.
