Seminars, Training, Speaking


Hi Michelle,

Many thanks for you very engaging and inspiring talk on Saturday 23 July 2016 at the Professional Counsellors Association, Western Sydney meeting.

You were able to touch on so many related topics in the industry, it was captivating and ignited much discussion that could have taken up the whole afternoon. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the time you graciously gave us, so much so I have been asked to invite you back for a time in 2017 again.

It was an absolute delight and I look forward to our paths crossing again soon.

Warm Regards,

Josephine Byrnes-Luna

"Michelle has such a passion and heart for young women and issues that they face. I wish I had had someone like Michelle to hear when I was a teenager. She was able to impact our girls with hope, encouragement and a realistic idea of true self worth." 

Deb Redwood, School Counsellor

"You were really relatable. I loved how you got everyone involved and discussing. I loved what you said about our bodies being our home."

Rachel, Year 10 Student

"Excellent! This unit was one of the best I've done - real world stuff. The lecturer was enthusiastic and brought life to the unit. We were lucky to have had her." 

PDHPE student, Australian Catholic University.

I am experienced in presenting seminars and workshops to school-aged girls and young women to build strength, confidence and resilience.



"What you said at the workshop on the weekend was so clear. I felt totally set free from hopelessness, fear and a judgmental attitude towards anorexia. I shared what you told us with my daughter - now we can face our friends who are suffering without being overwhelmed by fear and sadness. Thank you so much for all you did for us." 

Workshop participant, Everywoman Conference

One of the  best and most engaging presentations I attended. Real, authentic, helpful. Michelles' model explaining how EDs work, backed up by her own personal story was eye-opening. Really gave me something to think about.
