Michelle LenaartsCounselling Psychologist

Life can throw us many challenges which can be difficult to cope with. I am here to help you through these times. I provide a supportive, accepting environment, where you can feel comfortable to get the help you need. We will work together to give you skills to manage your difficulties now and in the future so you’ll be better prepared to live the life you want.


I work with individuals and families. My experience has involved working alongside families who experience trauma and behavioural problems; individuals with depression, anxiety, autism, work place stress and difficulties with stressful life events. I am also passionate about maternal mental health and sports psychology.

Therapy Training

I use therapeutic approaches where research has shown to be effective. These include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Mindfulness techniques. I use therapies that best support your needs, which may include an integrated approach.
