About Michele

About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I’m Michele (she/they). I’m an Integrative therapist providing time-limited and open-ended counselling to individuals (16+) online and in-person from my therapy room in North London.

People come to therapy for a range of reasons. You might be struggling in your relationship(s) or having family issues. Perhaps you want to process trauma. You might be experiencing anxiety around a life transition or change and finding it difficult to cope with. Maybe you want to get to know yourself better or work through issues relating to self-doubt and low confidence.

Using an affirming, intersectional, collaborative and non-judgemental approach, I will support you to explore and make sense of your thoughts, feelings, and experiences, and their impact. I will help you figure out how to move forward in a way that feels right for you, and leave you with the confidence and ability to make use of inner resources and external tools when therapy ends. I am queer-friendly and affirming of non-binary, trans and GNC folks. I work from an anti-oppressive position and my practice is always consent-led, non-pathologising and trauma informed.


I work with people on a variety of issues and welcome enquiries from everyone.

Some of the areas I have a particular interest in include:

- relationships (monogamous and non-monogamous; friends, family, partners and colleagues)

- identity exploration (gender, sexuality, culture, heritage, neurodivergence, sense of self)

- adult and childhood trauma (emotional neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, gaslighting)

- life transitions (loss, parenthood, career change, health diagnoses)

I also have experience working with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, grief, family dynamics, coping with stress and self-acceptance.

Type of counselling

I believe that no one therapeutic approach can address all client issues and that different tools, interventions and ways of working will work for different clients at different times, including during the course of therapy. As an integrative therapist, I draw from a variety of theories and practical techniques depending on what resonates with you. Some of the ideas and approaches that influence my practice include person-centred therapy, attachment theory, relational therapy, gestalt, emotion-focussed therapy, somatic therapy, narrative therapy, and creative and experiential techniques. I will always check in with you before trying a certain technique / approach, afterwards to reflect on how it was for you, and regularly over the course of therapy.

Arranging a session

If you think I might be a good fit for you, please get in touch to arrange a session. Initial sessions are 40 minutes for £50 and ongoing sessions are 50 minutes for £60.

I currently have availability on Wednesday afternoons and Thursday mornings and afternoons, either online or in-person (London, N19)
