As one of only a few recognised Psychologist Executive Coaches globally, Michelle specialises in enabling leaders at all organisational levels to further develop their strategic thinking, psychological flexibility, resilience, influencing ability, sense of authority and ability to effectively apply institutional and personal power. 

 

As a behaviour change specialist, Michelle’s coaching sessions are carefully balanced between exploratory and action-led. She uses a blend of systemic, cognitive and somatic techniques to support clients to better understand the “core of self”. In tandem, Michelle proactively enables them to unlock their human capability, capacity and mindset by utilising their innate intellectual, physical and intuitive strengths. As a result, clients most often report feeling connected, energised and purposeful, with a renewed confidence in their ability to drive tangible personal and commercial results.

 

As a team coach, Michelle works with ExCo and senior leadership teams to build engagement and rapport, establish or restore trust, improve collaboration, develop and embed authentic team brands and cultures and create wellbeing practices for resilience. Her focus is on creating psychological safety and high-quality relationships to achieve these aims. Clients value her insightfulness, warmth, inclusivity, responsiveness and courage.
