Michaela Kendall

Qualified Therapist

BACP registered (390748)





I have always had a curiosity to learn about myself and those around me. And I enjoy connecting with peoples stories.

My interest into becoming a counsellor sparked after a number of hectic years where I realised I was trying to live up to the perceived expectations of the world around me. I was heading for burnout fast when I began to realise there is another way to be. I began breaking down the conditions that had kept me wound so tight to doing. When I turned to counselling I realised the importance and necessity of slowing down and connecting with myself and those around me. I realised I can't do this alone and it's ok, safe even to lean on those around me. 

Shortly after I was introduced to at home yoga. This truly changed my daily life and over time I realised the importance of connecting with my body. How this contributed to my feeling of safety and rest. How this stopped my mind from taking over and how I simply learnt to breathe again. 

Since then I have become more interested and invested in learning about, and facilitating the connection between mind and body, for myself and my clients. It has transformed my life, my relationships and helped me feel at home again. I feel fortunate enough to see this in my clients too. We are one moving part, mind and body. One cannot function without the other.
