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.
Michelle is the senior psychotherapist at the portland practice, a bespoke clinic in Central London which offers a unique approach to counselling. After an initial consultation session in which to determine your particular needs, the portland practice will identify the therapist and consultant qualified in your particular area of concern, and will provide individual services, flexible to your schedule and requirements. Whilst they are able to offer long term and continual support, they also specialise in intensive 12-week programs in order to combat direct and urgent concerns.
