Michelle Crawford

I am a Clinical Psychologist and have been in private practice for the past 22 years.  

My work incorporates Western Attachment and Developmental theory as well as Shamanic approaches to healing and spiritual transformation.  Over the years, I have distilled the most pertinent and useful teachings from my formal training, allowing them to weave magically with my expansive spiritually informed approach to life and healing.
In essence, a sacred container of non judgment and compassion is offered through which the disowned, disavowed and unseen aspects of the self can be reintegrated, allowing for experiences which transform you and free you to move towards the life you desire (and deserve). 

The greatest asset that I bring to my work is my own unending will and desire to expand and grow, psychologically and spiritually – to navigate through life with an open heart and to continually be striving to be an embodiment of GRACE.  This is what I mirror to you in the Psychotherapeutic relationship.

My most treasured teachers  have been the Sacred Plant Medicines which I have been working with for the past 15 years.  Last year, I was fortunate enough to attend an intensive retreat in Peru,  with indigenous shamans. 

I am also interested in cellular detoxification and the impact that what we eat has on our consciousness and have been exploring fasting (the longest being 52 days).

Furthermore, I am passionate about design and Interior decorating as well as having an enduring love for horses and horse-riding.

i offer one on one and couple sessions, in person or via Skype.  I also offer Sacred Medicine journeys and Detox retreats in South Africa as well as abroad with my colleague, Alexandra Schwenn.

I look forward to being part of your healing journey.

Love Michelle
