Counsellor & Psychotherapist - (at Michele Kirschstein Therapy)
Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy, University of East London. BACP Registered Member (register number 384236)

Hello, I’m Michele (she/they). I offer time-limited and open-ended counselling to individuals (18+) online and in-person from my therapy room in North London (N19).

I work with people on a variety of issues and welcome enquiries from everyone. Some of the areas I have a particular interest in include:

  • relationships (monogamous and non-monogamous; friends, family, partners and colleagues)
  • identity exploration (gender, sexuality, culture, heritage, neurodivergence, sense of self)
  • adult and childhood trauma (emotional neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, gaslighting)
  • life transitions (loss, parenthood, career change, health diagnoses)

I also have experience working with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, grief, family dynamics, coping with stress and self-acceptance.

As an Integrative Therapist, I draw from a variety of theories and practical techniques depending on what resonates with you. Using an affirming, intersectional, collaborative and non-judgemental approach, I will support you to explore and make sense of your thoughts, feelings, and experiences, and their impact. I will help you figure out how to move forward in a way that feels right for you, and leave you with the confidence and ability to make use of inner resources and external tools when therapy ends.

I am queer-friendly and affirming of non-binary, trans and GNC folks. I work from an anti-oppressive position and my practice is always consent-led, non-pathologising and trauma informed.
