My husband and I faced big challenges in our careers. Working with Michelle changed our outlook from concern and anxiety to confidence, clarity and optimism… And we gained a toolkit of Michelle’s strategies and techniques to serve us in the future.
My husband Dugan and I hired Michelle to help us to work through some big changes we faced with our careers.
Michelle guided us to explore techniques for managing stress and dealing with emotional issues. She also helped us to ‘see the big picture’ and identify opportunities that may emerge from these changes that align with our values and interests as a family.
We chose Michelle to work with us because she has a unique ability to understand things from multiple perspectives and appreciates the important values of her clients. Michelle knew where we were coming from. She helped us find options that align with our values, taught strategies for achieving our goals and celebrating our successes and progress.
The timing was perfect! It changed our outlook from concern and anxiety to optimism around our future options and opportunities. With new confidence and a toolkit of the strategies and techniques Michelle imparted, we have been able to embark on our future planning with a positive and pragmatic approach.
Michelle is incredibly professional, yet warm and understanding in her approach. Michelle quickly picks up on key issues, challenges and opportunities, and works with you to tease these out and address them on multiple levels. Michelle also provided useful follow up material and further assistance to keep us on track with our goals and strategies after our coaching sessions.
We are now planning around our career changes with greater confidence, clarity and optimism. We can see how various sectors in our lives interrelate and how important it is to celebrate our achievements and plan for things that are important to us as a family, but to go with the flow where we need to.
I recommended Michelle to my sister, Sara who is setting up her new business because Sara is on the cusp of setting up a new creative therapy business, and Michelle has the ideal skill set and attributes to work with her to ensure things are done right from the start.
I wanted to change careers and sort out my really disrupted sleep. Michelle guided me to get really clear on my purpose and vision for my new ventures. And my sleep has improved too!

I came to Michelle because I wanted to change careers but was struggling from a lack of clarity and really bad, disrupted sleep.
For me, perhaps the biggest impact Michelle’s business and life coaching made was the ‘permission’ and guidance to think differently about how I view my work and my purpose. I now feel that developing new businesses around my passions has been given legitimacy. This is a really big step for me! And on a practical level, Michelle guided me to make plans for my new working life and business ventures. There are other important impacts too. I am sleeping better, because I now have less anxiety around making a big change. And, while I don’t consider myself a ‘creative thinker’, Michelle gave me tools to think more creatively.
