Why Michelle Kelly?

Michelle Kelly

I am an experienced, perceptive and empathetic counsellor and mediator whose focus is helping you to see, and ultimately be, a better version of yourself. We will develop a shared understanding of where you are and where you want to be. We will work together to bring focus, insight and understanding to issues and am able to quickly identify options.

Before changing my path to help others on their journeys, I worked in high profile legal and commercial roles. I understand the complex pressures and conflicts of a professional life. My experience and natural compassion are what motivate me to help people make sense of their world and lead better lives.
