Biography – Michelle Hansen (Elle)

Elle enjoys working with people across the lifespan and has a strong interest in supporting young people. She strives to create a warm, supportive, and person-focused environment to allow for exploration and support of the person’s concerns. Elle has a particular interest in working with people to help manage anxiety and mood difficulties and to build self-esteem. She also enjoys supporting people with adjustment to life events, general stressors, and sleep difficulties.

Elle works from the perspective that therapy should be person-focused and strives to create a collaborative environment in which the person’s therapeutic goals are the focus. In her work Elle uses evidence-based interventions such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). She also has a strong focus on providing people with education around mental health difficulties to facilitate understanding and normalise their difficulties.
