I attended Michelle's Wellness Retreat in July 2019. What were the best bits? Well, where to start… it was a digital detox and a chance to step away from everyday life for a couple of days. A time to focus on myself and my own needs in that moment. There was walking in beautiful woodland, skimming stones on the river, and conversation around the campfire… to name just a few of the joys of this retreat. I even had my first ever experience of a woodland shower – there is something both weird and wonderful about showering in the outdoors, surrounded by trees and the sounds of nature. And, of course, Michelle provided plenty of activities to get us thinking and contemplating career, health, relationships, and life generally… where we are right now, and where we want to be and what future we want to create for ourselves. And that's not even mentioning the delicious food (read: feast) Michelle created for us... all on a camping stove! I returned home feeling rested, relaxed, recharged, and ready to take on the week ahead. I thoroughly 100% recommend this retreat! And that's not overstating it even one little bit!
I have worked with a couple of coaches before I teamed up with Michelle. What sets her apart from others is her calm methodical approach, using a variety of techniques, and her ability to get to the nub of the problem. I have found every session really helpful but, more importantly, enjoyable. Nothing it seems is insurmountable for this thoughtful and insightful individual; even down to improving one’s image and self-confidence. The sessions in the gym were particularly imaginative - Michelle even got me enjoying strengthening and boxing. She complemented these sessions with a bespoke dietary programme. I have genuinely benefitted from my coaching experience with Michelle and can thoroughly recommend her.
I recently took part in one of Michelle's retreat weekends. The thought originally filled me with dread but I knew it was something I had to do. Michelle was accommodating for different levels of fitness and experience. She went with the flow of what we required and pushed us to try new things. Normally you come back from a weekend away feeling tired and ready for a good nights sleep - not this time! I felt so refreshed and invigorated. The clean eating food Michelle had prepared was delicious and I've tried to stick to it since I've been back - those 2 days really did make a difference. The activities were different from your normal well being weekend and we even learned some basic bushcraft survival skills! I can not recommend Michelle enough, she has made me look at things so differently in life and I am still thinking that way 3 weeks later!
