Michaela specialises in individual and relationship counselling in Sydney. Relationships and their profound impact on individuals lives is her passion in life. Her focus as a therapist is prevention. She wants to de-stigmatise therapy as a daunting experience and instead turn it into a building block which supports couples and individuals in implementing strategies to build and create strong and positively functioning life long relationships.
Michaela is an empathetic, open minded and practical therapist. She has been working as a counsellor for four years and feels it is truely an honor to provide the tools for people to grow and connect and then witness the domino effect this has on their lives. She utilises varying approaches during therapy as she enjoys tailoring her approach to suit the needs of her clients. These include techniques from Gottman, Emotional Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Michaela is a big believer in incorporating psychological techniques in to your life in ways you find enjoyable and accessible to create maintainable positive changes.
In addition to her counselling, Michaela has spent 9 years running a personal training business. As a result of this she is a strong believer that physical and mental health go hand in hand. This has had a direct influence on her holistic view on therapy which she use to support her clients in an empathetic and practical manner.
When Michaela is not working as a therapist she enjoys time with her large, tight-knit family, practicing Muay Thai and she can never get enough of being out in nature.
