How to Get Started

If you are interested in learning more about Michelle’s coaching and what coaching can do for you, please contact her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Michelle reserves the right to discount her rate further for those paying for the coaching privately who would not otherwise be able to afford the service.

The process from then is:

  • We will arrange a 30 minute introductory call or skype 'preview' meeting for you to speak to Michelle to enable you to assess her suitability for you and your needs
  • If you are happy to proceed, you will be sent a coaching agreement and invoice, a mutually convenient time for the first session will be arranged and a diary invitation sent to you
  • The optional pre-meeting with the line manager will also be arranged at this time and may occur before or after the first client session

“Michelle has a unique ability of getting people to talk openly about all aspects of life. She creates a safe and highly confidential environment. She can be trusted and gives great support and thought provoking advice. She opened doors which had been bolted for many years and opened my mind to examine my personality helping me to identify my skills and attributes and to acknowledge my shortcomings and accept them. I can honestly say I will carry the lessons learned in my sessions forever applying them to all areas of my life.”
