Michelle McMaster MRes; BSc(Hons); Mental Health & Trauma Recovery Practitioner
I am a fully accredited Master NLP Practitioner, Brain and Behaviour Change Practitioner with Applied Neuroscience, Motivational Life Coach and CBT Practitioner with professional Diplomas in Psychotherapy and Mindfulness. I am also a professionally qualified Independent Social Worker with experience in family support, learning disability, mental health and suicide prevention, older people, physical disability and sensory impairment.
I have almost 40 years experience working with children and adults who have experienced grief, loss or trauma, with a particular focus on mental health and wellbeing, including suicide prevention. I have worked with individuals and with small groups and larger teams delivering training sessions and/or therapeutic workshops.
I specialise in treating anxiety, depression, phobias and OCD and in supporting people with chronic and enduring mental health concerns or dealing with grief and trauma.
In addition to 1-1 coaching and mentoring, I offer exclusive motivational talks, workshops and retreats which help people make sense of challenging circumstances and find renewed hope and purpose for the future so they can fully enjoy life again.
