After the completion of Michelle’s degree in psychology, she pursued a career in this field. With the desire to help people and work therapeutically with clients, she began preparing to for a career within Counselling Psychology. However, a personal experience resulted in Michelle swapping from the role of the therapist to the client. Upon doing so, she discovered the limitations of traditional therapy.
She found that although psychologists were able to discover the root cause of the problem and enable the client to understand their behaviour, they provided little to no suggestions as to how to eradicate the problem. Instead, sessions seemed to be focused on how to cope with new diagnoses and managing symptoms.
This led Michelle to seek an alternative approach, one which allowed her to work through the trauma comfortably. It was then that Michelle discovered the power of NLP and opened up to the possibility that long term change was not only possible, but didn’t require the client to relive past negative emotions and events.
