Michelle New – Founder & Director
Michelle has come from a Corporate background where she excelled in Management, Team Leadership, Education, Public speaking, Procurement, Contract Negotiations, including Global Exchange Rates & Raw Materials.
I have had many curve balls thrown my way and even though they were for the most part extremely traumatic events; they have shaped me to be the person I am today, doing what I am passionate about. I have not thought of myself as a victim for a long time now I see myself as a survivor.
I have experienced: Torture, Physical & Mental Abuse, Child Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence and simply being in the wrong place wrong time.
I put everyone into one of 3 categories in the instance of a traumatic event unfolding:
- The Doer/Helper
- The Watch/Don’t get involved or
- Your frozen and wish you could help but don’t know what to do.
If your wondering I fit into the first category.
My life experience in the corporate sector and my personal life experiences allow me to say “I understand and know what you’re going through”; having said that everyone processes trauma differently. I am focused on Mental Health in the Workplace and wider Community. I look forward to meeting and educating as many people as we can to help destroy any stigma that may still be around.
