Michele is a coach and trainer specialising in resilience and wellbeing.
Alongside her colleague Tim Segaller she runs This Way Up, a six week programme which works with people with a wide range of emotional needs to gain a greater sense of control over their current circumstances and future direction. Michele and Tim also contribute wellbeing services to other QSA projects, and are founders of Rising Minds.
Michele came to interpersonal work after more than twenty years in BBC News. She is currently a trustee of North and East London Relate and of Unlock, the reformed offenders' charity and has been a trustee of Shelter.
She has a lifelong interest in tackling injustice and is particularly attracted to the way in which QSA's projects are designed to give people tools with which to tackle their real and immediate needs based on a principle of kindness and respect.
