I help you recover from suffering and cultivate ongoing practices for peace, so that you can live the life you long for.
Whether you suffer from trauma, relationship ending or abuse, intimacy problems, stress or breakdown, there is more to recovery than just relieving symptoms.
There is an opportunity to go beyond healing, into greater self-awareness and deeper peace and connection.
Hi everyone, I’m Michelle Dixon. My passion is facilitating a transformation in your way of being: feeling at peace in your body, in your connection to others, and with yourself.
I became a practitioner in order to recover from heartbreak, trauma and anxiety after divorce in my 30s. It was a time in my life when I couldn’t imagine living without daily panics, anxiety, depression, and struggle.
Today, I’m one of the few experts in trauma recovery and relationship and intimacy coaching who works with the body (somatic approach) and not just the mind in order to facilitate happy, healthy and intimately fulfilling relationships with oneself and others.
My signature methodology
I have a unique and comprehensive approach to shifting you from suffering to peace which works at the level of your body, mind and spirit.
We begin with urgent support, in order to settle the nervous system. Then, we release held trauma in the body, rewire your mind away from negative thought loops and low self-worth, and help you integrate with Wholeness through mindfulness techniques.
My therapeutic toolkit
I use various forms of bodywork for trauma release (de-armouring, biodynamic cranial touch, myofacial and craniosacral therapies). For the mind, I use neurolinguistic processing, hypnotherapy, and various hybrid techniques to help your mind ‘relearn’ self-compassion and positive thinking. For integration of Wholeness or Soul, I use mindfulness, specifically 6 core practices for peace which I have developed for my online mindfulness program (see below).
I’d love to hear about your journey, your struggles, hopes and desires. Find out more below.

I have had individual sessions, couples coaching plus group workshops (retreat) with Michelle over the last 7 years. When I first met Michelle I was hanging onto an old relationship and was unhappy and shut down in my body. She really helped me develop a healthy relationship with myself. Michelle is gifted in dissecting core relationship challenges in a clear and articulate manner. I always felt supported and understood and she helped me change my pattern of how I used to do relationships. In one session, using NLP and hypnotherapy, she helped me create a heart connection and intention to connect with the man who would become my future partner. It also helped me finally let go of past relationships. Since then, she has helped me navigate my relationship with myself and also with my partner, including the first stumbling blocks in my relationship. She did it in a way that helped me stay in my power and communicate well. I’ve been in a relationship with this man for five years now, and we are getting married next year! I highly recommend working with Michelle and I continue to be in touch with her. -Arishma Singh,

"Michelle is a gentle, caring, empathetic and powerful facilitator and healer. I have been working with her for a couple of years now and she has gently guided me to excellent results, not only on physical and emotional level, but also when coaching me for my service/business ... She has a very unique approach and connects with Energy in such a wonderful way that makes me feel safe and confident. The energy in the room is amazing! She has the gift to help others from a place of love, understanding and clarity. Thank you so much for sharing your Light with the world! I love working with you and seeing and living great results!"

"Michelle has been fantastic in taking me through a journey of self discovery. Naturally introverted, it took me time to open up but her gentle style coupled with giving me goals to achieve has been instrumental in changing me and my life."
"She has an ability to wade through the mire of distractions and help you work out where your focus should truly be to balance your life. I am very goal driven but I have been using some less important goals to avoid doing what I need to do for myself, my family, my business and my spiritual/ church life as well as fitness and relationship. She's helping me to get these into to a better balance so that I don't live with the constant frustration of wearing my self out trying to keep everyone else happy. She is helping me focus on setting the right goals! Visualising them and working to achieve them because I really want to achieve them and not just because it will stop me from failing.
Watch this space !!!"
"I am a male in my 40's and I am a survivor of childhood and sexual abuse. My sadness led me to edge of 3 suicide attempts in my adult life, all of those wanting to extinguish the pain after each of the new trauma events. Michelle's nurturing nature and her approach to treating the person as a whole is what is helping me recover and grow. Her connected work at all levels has helped me leave the trauma in the past, and strive for a better future. She has helped me overcome the hurdles of being stuck in a victim mindset. I am now a true believer that the body holds trauma, and without awareness and assistance, the trauma keeps surfacing to either be ignored or addressed."
