What is Kintsugi Healing?

Kintsugi Healing is inspired by the Japanese Art of Kintsugi, literally translated ‘golden joinery’, which repairs precious broken pottery using a unique golden lacquer, highlighting cracks instead of hiding them.

Kintsugi repair respects the origins of the pieces and their meaning for the owner. The process is thoughtful and patient, combining both art and science. The finished pieces are stronger than the original and have their own unique beauty as a result of the golden repair.

Inspired by this ancient practice, Kintsugi Healing offers a practical, step-by-step guide for compassionate healing and lasting change, helping people make sense of difficult or challenging experiences so they can move through them to create stronger and more confident futures.

"Michelle guided me through these dark times and I can now consider what a new future can look like, that it can exist and times of enjoyment can be more frequent and longer lasting"


"I cannot tell you how much it has meant to be working with Michelle. I have been in a very dark place and after a very short space of time I feel so much better and can see a whole lot of light at the end of the tunnel."


"Michelle has worked with me extensively to help me overcome my anxiety and my fear of flying. She has years of experience in helping others with similar problems and I have no hesitation recommending her to anyone."

About Michelle

I have almost 40 years experience working with children and adults who have experienced grief, loss or trauma, with a particular focus on mental health, wellbeing and suicide prevention.

I became fascinated with Kintsugi a few years ago and travelled to Japan to study Kintsugi with an 83 year old Japanese Master. This gave me a deep understanding of how the process of thoughtful repair can be applied to human pain and brokenness. I have combined that with the intensive study of how our neurology and physiology can promote healing, and from that unique blend I have created Kintsugi Healing as a compassionate, patient, effective method for promoting healing and lasting change.
