1. Resilience and stress management

There’s much less second guessing and freaking out about things. I may get worried, but I can also put things in context. Before, there would be  worse-case scenario-ing or thinking that I’m a terrible person, a terrible lawyer. Anonymous, Senior Associate At Law

I am currently under a lot of pressure at work. In the past, I would feel highly stressed and overwhelmed. However, thanks to the work I’ve been doing with Michelle, I am feeling calm and centred, and I have more realistic expectations of what I can achieve in the given timeframes. This is making me more effective getting things done, and also as a leader. Andrea Creer, HR Manager

Things that previously stressed me out, I now solve without even thinking about it. I have more energy, and my mental faculties are better. I’m remembering what I read easily. I feel like I have more options – I’m not stuck, thinking “there’s nowhere I can go with this. Leanne Nicholson, Manager

I know I’m doing a good job. I don’t need my boss to acknowledge that all the time. I don’t have that knot in my stomach any more. Everything seems so much more positive. Anonymous, Chief Financial Officer

I’m feeling fantastic! On top of that, I’ve stopped getting frustrated with myself at work for not knowing everything. It’s quite amazing what a difference that has made. Cassy Bezeruk, Senior Marketing Manager

I was placed in charge of a big and important project which involved me stepping right outside my comfort zone.  In addition, the project required me to frequently work 12-14 hour days and most weekends over the course of a number of months. Previously, this would have triggered a fair amount of anxiety, fretting and worst case scenario-ing. However, having worked with Michelle this just didn’t happen as much. I found I was just getting on with the work and was actually relishing the challenge and seeing it as a fantastic learning opportunity. Now, I feel like I’ve really achieved something and would be much more willing to take on challenges in the future. Anonymous, Senior Associate at Law

A weight’s been lifted off my shoulders. I’m feeling so much more myself, and much happier. My mind feels beautiful! Anonymous, Campaign Manager

It’s nice to feel much calmer. My head’s not so busy. I’m more focussed at work and able to concentrate longer. I’m also feeling more positive. Anonymous, Interior designer

I am really feeling light, relaxed. I’ve been gentle with myself. I’m more in control over what goes through my head. I see improvement in how I react to things happening around me and what that means to me. Anonymous, Communications Manager

Thank you kindly for our first session.  I’ve noticed significant improvements in how I react to stressful situations and how quickly I dismiss my negative thoughts.  I have really surprised myself so I would like to thank you for your help. Anonymous

2. Productivity and fulfilling your potential

Sales went up 300% after just 1 session with Michelle. Anonymous, Sales Executive

My staff are more content and happier. There’s a better vibe in the team and they’re 25% more productive. AdrianManaging Director

I’m not doing long hours like I used to. But I’m getting the same amount of work done. I’m delegating more. And I have more time to spend with my team, guiding and sharing with them. Anonymous, Chief Financial Officer

Rather than “I have to keep going,” now I don’t have to push through. I just do it. It’s easier. Anonymous, Business Owner

Michelle revived a clarity and energy I hadn’t felt in a long time. I feel more open and able to express myself. I’m more responsive in a real and genuine way. Suddenly my concentration is great and I am powering through work. Brigid Hussy, Project Officer

Michelle helped me face my inner fears and brought out the best in my career aspirations. As a result, I’ve experienced unprecedented changes in my life that have put me on a path towards my ‘true self’. I learnt to be myself and ask for what I want without guilt. I would recommend Michelle to anyone. She has an inspiring and refreshing quality rarely found in practitioners today. Nicola Williams, Urban Designer

3. Leadership

I am amazed at how far I have come so quickly. I know I could have gotten here on my own but it would have be much slower and more arduous. I see the work with Michelle as being vital to accelerating my growth and helping me achieve some of my bigger goals for the future. Tim Neumann, Senior Digital Designer & Entrepreneur

Michelle supported me to in identifying blocks in my personal life and leadership role. Her processes for clearing blocks have been extremely effective. Her warm style made me feel immediately safe and comfortable. I highly recommend Michelle as both a wellness consultant and leadership coach. Cass Spong, CEO

I was placed in charge of a big and important project which involved me stepping right outside my comfort zone.  In addition, the project required me to frequently work 12-14 hour days and most weekends over the course of a number of months. Previously, this would have triggered a fair amount of anxiety, fretting and worst case scenario-ing. However, having worked with Michelle this just didn’t happen as much. I found I was just getting on with the work and was actually relishing the challenge and seeing it as a fantastic learning opportunity. Anonymous, Senior Lawyer

(After being told to make 20 people redundant) I didn’t feel angry about it like I did at first. I wasn’t happy about it, but I did what needed to be done. And I’m not succumbing to the pressure, even though this week, there’s been more pressure than before. Anonymous, Operations Manager 

I have been working with Michelle on developing my leadership skills and adapting to the change of taking on a high level management role. Michelle uses innovative techniques to help define what kind of leader you want to be, and instil confidence that you can achieve your goals. I have found her invaluable to my professional development, and will continue to see her as new challenges arise. Cassy Berzeruk, Senior Marketing Manager

4. Confidence and public speaking

I’m feeling fantastic! On top of that, I’ve stopped getting frustrated with myself at work for not knowing everything. It’s quite amazing what a difference that has made. Cassy Bezeruk, Head of Marketing

After one session with Michelle, I felt confident and was actually looking forward to making my presentation. Even though I had the flu during the presentation, I felt happy and at ease. I believed in myself. I didn’t feel anxious at all. Everyone was really impressed and I got some 5 out of 5’s for feedback. Anonymous, HR Analyst

I’ve noticed big improvements. After I said something, I thought ‘that was easy!’ And then realised that I would have struggled to do the same in the past. Generally, I just feel a lot calmer! I’ve been speaking up in meetings and I trust myself more to say the right thing. Anonymous, Communications Manager

After just one session with Michelle, I’m no longer blushing at work. I feel more confident in meetings, even when I’m put on the spot… I know that what I say has merit. Anonymous, Marketing Manager

I learnt to be myself and ask for what I want without guilt. It’s been one of the most important life lessons I have ever been taught!  Why did I not get help for this years ago! Nicola Williams, Urban Designer

After just 2 sessions, I’ve opened up and come out of my shell. I’m more confident and saying yes to invites where I wouldn’t have before. Ana C, Accountant

(Workplace bullying) I still don’t like what happened to me, but I’m okay with it. It doesn’t bug me like it used to. Anonymous, Account Manager

7. Sleep and insomnia

It’s phenomenal! I’ve slept well since (our session), and the nights since then. I’m also sleeping through the night. I can’t put a value on that! Also, rather than always being revved up, I can now also rev down and switch off when I need to rest. Sarah Robertson, IT Sales Executive

My sleep is now uninterrupted and nourishing.  And I’ve experienced changes on so many levels! Leanne Nicholson, Assistant Manager

8. Relationships

I’m not in a needy space anymore. I’m a whole person. I’ve got all of this to offer someone, but I don’t need a guy. I’m in a cool place.  On top of that, my singing voice has gone to a whole new level. Anonymous, Professional Singer

I feel like a whole different person. I feel really free and light. I feel that I have so much love and positive energy in me. Anonymous, IT Consultant
