About me

Coaching for stress and anxiety

Not only can stress and anxiety feel highly unpleasant, they can also both have a negative impact on our general well-being and quality of life. My unique, six week programme of coaching, called Shine For Wellbeing™, is therefore specifically designed to help you reduce stress and anxiety as quickly and as effectively as possible so that you can start to enjoy life again.

Shine For Wellbeing™ has been designed to help you:

  • reduce stress and anxiety as quickly as possible
  • experience greater calm and relaxation
  • feel less overwhelmed
  • learn effective ways of dealing with life's challenges
  • gain techniques for building your resilience going forward
  • put the spring back in your step!

Shine For Wellbeing™ blends therapeutic coaching techniques and mindfulness to help you understand what may be causing or prolonging the stress and anxiety you’re experiencing and develop new strategies for a life of greater calm and emotional balance. And I’m here to support, guide and encourage you every step of the way.


"The sessions have equipped me with tools and practices which I can use in my daily life to better understand my mind and work with it rather than against it. It has been so valuable to have allocated time that's just for me...Michelle has such a calming presence and has created an environment free from judgement where I felt in very safe hands."  Rebecca, Edinburgh

"As a result of the course I have experienced reduced stress, better sleep and I am more self-aware." Paul, Bromsgrove

"Really helped me to calm down."
C., Bucks

"I had a particularly stressful week and I felt like I needed to stop my chattering mind which is exactly what I managed to do with the exercises you introduced." Name withheld

My experience and approach

I am a stress and anxiety coach with a master's degree in mindfulness. For my thesis I researched the neuroscience of mindfulness, obsessive compulsive disorder and emotion regulation. I am also trained in health & wellbeing coaching, therapeutic coaching and performance coaching.

Stress and anxiety can be overwhelming. My approach to wellbeing is therefore based on the belief that helping clients to create space around their experience is essential for gaining mastery over stress and anxiety. This approach runs throughout my Shine For Wellbeing™ programme.

One of the things my clients often tell me is that I don't judge and this is incredibly freeing for them. It means that they can talk openly and feel listened to, allowing them to more easily explore, understand and take action to address the core of their issues.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

I work Monday to Thursday 8am to 7pm.
