Working one on one, with Hypnotherapy and other psychotherapy tools, to help change out dated coping habits and negative self beliefs.
She has a particular interest in ways we can learn to ease the emotional grip of chronic pain.
In December 2008 Michele expanded her practice and opened the Newport Hypnotherapy and Healing Centre with the intention of bringing a network of exceptional therapists together to offer a safe and healing environment to both work in and visit.
In 2013 Michele was given the opportunity to expand the centre to include the whole premises and an extra four rooms.
In 2018 the premises holding Newport Hypnotherapy, Health & Healing Centre was sold. With the responsibility of all of the current practitioners very much on Michele's mind a new premises was found and The Self Centre was born.
'Everyone has within themselves a rich history of experiences which hold all the resources that are needed to firstly understand, and then to heal, and then choose to change .
The subconscious mind stores all of our experiences, and as a hypnotherapist I facilitate as my clients access these resources and find courage to realise their desired positive change.'
