About Michelle

Michelle Hopkinson is an established expert in child, teen and family psychology. She is an advocate for positive mental health development in all areas of life. She champions the idea that in any interaction, you have the opportunity to connect in a conscious and meaningful way.


Michelle’s approach is grounded in a therapeutic framework of trust and safety for parents and children, and to create the space to speak up, and the time to be understood. “Michelle believes in the power of creating a safe therapeutic place bound by trust where clients can feel confident to speak up and in turn, be understood”.

What I have learned in the years that I have been practicing is to never underestimate the power of kindness, compassion and deep human connections to mobilise change. Creating a hub and bringing together a collective of people that wholeheartedly value this way of relating is a dream come true.

Michelle’s expertise in family psychology extends across the lifespan and includes children, teens, young adults, adults, older adults, parents and the perinatal/postnatal period.

She provides face-to-face and telehealth sessions for the delivery family therapy, individual therapy, couples therapy for;

  • Drug and alcohol counselling
  • Mental health support for mood disorders
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Phobias
  • OCD
  • Eating disorders
  • Early psychosis
  • Teen and Child psychology addressing behavioural, emotional and social skills
  • Suicide prevention
  • Life transitions
  • Complex trauma
  • Grief and loss


Michelle is also an accredited supervisor for mentoring aspiring psychologists in training, clinical master’s students, clinical registrars, registered and clinical psychologists.


Michelle chose to set her sights on a lifelong ambition of forming a collective of allied health professionals. This vision was realised early in 2018, and till this day, she is focused on leading a league of experts in a highly impactful hub.
