Clinical Services Director
Michelle is an experienced Integrative Psychotherapist who has served different roles within The Young People's Counselling Service, starting in 2014 as a therapist. Michelle is passionate about the charity and has been instrumental in its growth and development. Michelle leads on all areas of clinical development, school service level agreements, projects with other third sector organisations and supports the current team of ten practitioners.
As a therapist in an independent school and private practice, Michelle sees the need for local mental health support. Alongside the board of trustees, Michelle is always looking at areas YPCS can expand into and further support the young people and families that YPCS sees without diluting the quality service that the charity is proud to offer.
Michelle also supports fundraising
and was key in organising fire walks, sky dives, the first YPCS golf day and setting up stands to recruit volunteers. This not only helps raise the vital funding needed but provides the opportunity to meet supporters and volunteers and share how their fundraising helps support a service like YPCS.
