Argyll And Bute
Hello, my name is Michelle Wakerell and I am able to assist you to improve and change your quality of life............
I am a fully qualified, registered and accredited Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist and I am a member of the NHS Directory of Complimentary and Alternative Practitioners(membership number 6947).
My career to date has involved spending nearly 20 years in the "Sports, Health and Fitness Industry" where I led a very fulfilling, varied and interesting life running a successful business. It was within this industry that my passion for people, their behaviour and psychology developed, as I constantly became more aware of the power of the mind, and how peoples thought patterns would manifest themselves in their performance, behaviour and actions.
During this time I studied not only psychology but also Neuro Linguistic Programming (N.L.P.) and first became conscious of how very effective, safe, quick and successful hypnotherapy can be for so many, many different issues, problems and even illness and pain control.
I am now passionate about my profession and am totally committed to not only ongoing personal and professional development, but also to informing, educating and advice.
I have experienced my own share of personal challenges through life, so I bring a wealth of life and personal experiences to my work, and I can assure you that you will be treated as an individual and your concerns treated with respect in a confidential, caring, and non judgemental approach.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
