Choose to Thrive



Conscious health and wellbeing for women

Hi! I’m Michelle, Physiotherapist, Health Coach, Pilates Instructor and mother with 15 years experience in the healthcare industry.

The birth of my son brought the expected highs and lows as well as some unexpected twists and turns in my own personal physical and mental health journey. Ultimately this resulted in a complete re-evaluation of my lifestyle, health and career and a lot of research and learning!

These days I am passionate about inspiring busy, successful women like you, to find clarity and purpose in life.

I believe we all deserve to live an amazing life doing what we love. Whether you are a full-time career woman or juggling part-time work with motherhood (or a side hustle!), you have within you a gold mine of untapped potential just waiting to be discovered!

Invest in creating a purposeful and fulfilling life that you love. I can’t wait to work with you!

I found the Choose to Thrive Career Clarity workshop to be inspiring, educational and empowering. It was a nurturing gift to myself and a break away from my busy working Mum life. I highly recommend to anyone interested in attending that they do.

The Choose to Thrive Workshop encouraged me to stop…stop and refresh, stop and reflect, stop and reconnect. I left feeling grounded, yet inspired on more levels than I expected. Thank you Michelle and Naomi for an enlightening day, with a wonderful group of people.
