Michelle Govan

Holistic Counsellor and Psychotherapist

Michelle is a registered counsellor with adults and children and has experience in three diverse roles: community support, education, and therapeutic services. These form a strong foundation for her understanding of human behaviour and development in the care of individuals and their families. Married for 32 years and a mother of 4 herself, she recognises that the journey of life gets hard at times. We all need the opportunity to be heard, understood, and receive compassionate support to navigate life’s challenges to enable us to move forward into genuine and lasting happiness.

Having completed a Masters in Counselling and a Bachelor of Education, Michelle offers a service to help you make sense of inner confusion and past wounds, repair relationships, overcome grief and loss, develop personal and professional growth, build resilience, and create that work-life balance, while discovering tools and strategies that will move you closer to the life you have yearned for. Michelle has a desire to see individuals achieve restoration and wholeness that aligns with the Kansha ethos, partnering with a team of specialists for wellness.

Her approach to counselling is calm, embraces a client centered framework, is non-judgemental and non- confrontational. Utilising a variety of interventions tailored to client needs with a strong focus on the therapeutic relationship, Michelle strives to ensure positive outcomes for clients and best practice standards. Michelle is a registered member of the Australian Counselling Association. She is also a Trainer and Assessor for students studying the Diploma of Counselling course and group facilitator.
