Lymphatic Drainage, Vagus Nerve Regulation, Somatic Counselling

Friday and Saturday

For Somatic counselling please contact Michelle at

Michelle has been working therapeutically with clients for almost 20 years. She began her
career in health and wellbeing as a physical therapist and has come to understand the
symbiotic relationship that exists between the body and the mind. She is particularly
interested in the role of the nervous system, as seen through a Polyvagal lens, and how a
system that can flexibly recover from challenges is better able to sustain health and growth.
As a somatic therapist, Michelle is particularly interested in the role that stress plays on the
mind, body, and nervous system and the adaptive survival response that ensues. She has
come to embody and learn that given the right conditions, there can be a movement
towards regulating one’s nervous system, allowing a return to feeling safe after
experiencing a challenging situation. Michelle works with her clients to support this process,
helping them feel resourced so that they can build resilience and adaptability in their
response to stress.
