PROFILE - Michelle Krethlow Shaw

I have been working as a Psychotherapist/Counsellor and Hypnotherapist in my own private Broomfield based practice for a number of years now and thoroughly enjoy not only working with the local community but with clients from Essex and the London area.

I moved to Essex from Derbyshire with my husband in the early 1980’s, spending the first 20 years of my career working with Essex County Council as well as in some of our local schools. Whilst studying for a Management qualification I experienced an epiphany realising that my true love was the study of human behaviour and Psychology, leading me to have a radical rethink about how I wanted to spend my working life.

I first qualified in my early 40’s as a Hypnotherapist quickly followed by; Counselling/Psychotherapy, Stress Management, Mindfulness and most recently EMDR (a treatment for Trauma). This means I can offer a pretty unique mix of skills to my clients. If I were to describe my own expertise it would be around all difficulties relating to anxiety; from Depression to Trauma and Phobias but Grief and Loss Counselling also have a very special place in my heart as well as working with Relationships. For me every person has their own unique story to tell and being with and working with each client is a thoroughly life affirming experience.
