Why not read my writing?
A good way to get to know me and my perspectives on life is through my writing. I share short fiction and non-fiction articles on this site (check out the top tabs) and I write Friday Flow on SubStack. You can browse the archives of fortnightly entries and sign up for Friday Flow to receive it directly in your inbox.
Roll call! These great organisations chose to involve me in their projects, workshops and dreams…
Lovely comments from real-life humans I have worked with…
A board that I am part of decided to engage Michelle to help us discuss and create the strategy for the organisation for the next few years. Michelle was a wonderful facilitator, setting the scene and expectations of the session, allowing conversations and ideas to flow, while also clearly summarising what had been discussed and allowing us to land key aspects for the strategy. It was easy and Michelle was lovely to work with, thank you!
Michelle was incredibly valuable in helping me to successfully prepare for an interview. She gave me confidence to articulate my strengths in a clear and methodical way. Her attention to detail was matched with a genuine interest in my career change. I felt supported, encouraged and reassured by her approach. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to others. Ngaa mihi Michelle.
“This was such a meaningful and powerful workshop. The insights around wellbeing gave me new tools that I will be using in my life going forward. I was able to meet & engage with people I otherwise wouldn’t have met. I left this workshop feeling incredibly full of hope.”
“My wellbeing is innate. I’ve always had it. It’s not outside me. And no-one can take it away.”
“[The workshop] gave me the tools I need whilst going through a tough time.”

“Michelle is one of those rare people whose gift of service and leadership has the potential to reshape entire communities by empowering people to see themselves through the lens of possibility rather than limitation.”
“One of Michelle’s greatest talents is her ability to listen intently, while holding space for other people to share their emotions, thoughts and feelings. She is a collaborative and empathetic leader, with a bright mind, and the ability to synthesise information extremely quickly in a very direct and practical way”
“Michelle became my coach in August 2017 when I embarked on a journey which involved beginning a business in a new health modality that is not widely known. This being my second business in the health sector I wanted to start this new business with a fresh, methodical approach. Michelle predominately offered business coaching whilst also incorporating some valuable life coaching which helped me discover more about myself and the way I wanted to operate my business. Her approach has been kind and gentle, bringing a wealth of knowledge and opening a whole new paradigm to how I viewed business and business models. She has been thoroughly supportive and encouraging through this process and both my business and personal lives have benefited from her input. As a female entrepreneur it has been a difficult path to navigate and I can see the value in having a mentor like Michelle. Drawing a comparison between beginning my first business without a mentor compared to my second, Michelle has made the process less daunting and has provided essential insight into the business world. She has also been my constant with regards to helping me maintain a positive attitude about myself and my capabilities. In moments of self-doubt Michelle has been there always to ensure I veer back on to the path of self-belief and success.”
