Join Michelle, and a group of wellbeing & mental health professionals who gather once a month for support, professional learning and development.

financial services industry, with business development being her area of expertise for 11-years.

Words from Michelle…

“As we grow, our professional practice grows, which sounds encouraging and positive, but what I’ve
witnessed can be the exact opposite. The more I support female professionals in my private practice
who have a strong desire to harness their personal power, expertise, strengths and expand their professional practice further, the more I’ve noticed a pattern in the nervous system response.

Taking up more space, sharing our voice, taking risks, and being more embodied in our
professional practice can actually be very activating for our nervous system and can trigger a
traumatic stress response. This requires building capacity in our nervous system so we can grow
into the successful person we desire to be. We do this by supporting the nervous system to
expand it’s window of tolerance to career development. This helps us to occupy more space and
allow us to grow into the version of ourselves that we desire to be.

We don’t have enough of these real-life mirrors which offers support, modelling, nervous system
attunement, somatic resourcing and helping us to build our courage muscles in our professional practice.
