Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. My name is Michelle Winter, and I am a fully licensed, Thrive Programme Consultant serving Edinburgh, The Lothians, and Fife, Central London and Skype for clients further afield. Prior to this, I spent a number of years working as a Mental Health nurse, in London and the north-east of England.
During my career, I worked in a variety of Mental Health settings. Each clinical area required an overlap of skills, using various therapeutic interventions to help and support patients during distressing times in their lives. These interventions included Psycho-social interventions, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Motivational interviewing, Systemic practice and Family therapy, Treatment & approaches in practice for Borderline Personality Disorders. I particularly enjoyed working with clients on a one to one basis, with complex needs, requiring input from a range of services. I also tried at all times to be up-to-date with the latest research and development, in order to incorporate this into my practice.
I bring with me a wealth of experience, to work as a Thrive Programme consultant. I work with compassion, unconditional positive regard, and respect. I do my best to empower clients and put them at ease, so that they may be relaxed, and therefore motivated to make the changes they need. My sessions are informal, friendly, and down to earth. I also have LGBTQ experience and awareness.
Amongst my specialist areas are depression, anxiety and stress, bipolar-affective disorder, low self-esteem, social anxiety, IBS, and fears and phobias.
What I like about The Thrive Programme is, it’s a straight-forward, action-packed, training programme, fully backed up with research. It is not a therapy. There is no analysis of the past, or focussing solely on symptoms, and managing them. It is based on positive psychology, looking at building up clients’ emotional control, and self-esteem. The programme aims to help you build strong psychological and emotional foundations, leading to a happier, more fulfilled, more resilient, and successful you. When your mind-set is healthy and strong, nothing stops you from having the life you want.
I am bound by a code of practice and ethical standards, as part of the Scottish Association of Licensed Thrive Programme Consultants SALTPC. I regularly update my skills and professional development. I am fully insured, and hold a full Disclosure Scotland PVG scheme membership statement.
Feel free to email or call me to ask any questions you may have. Alternatively, book in for a consultation, and you can meet me in person.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
