About Us

Award Winning Marketing and Leadership Coach

THE FASHION MAGAZINE EDITOR

Editor of the first ever digital only vintage fashion magazine, Michelle Hatcher was never shy of taking the bull by the horns and striking out into a predominately male orientated world. Reshaping the publishing industry, her determination set her on a path of being the ultimate marketing agent.

Travelling up and down the country, clocking up 1000 miles most weekends, she bravely became the voice for small businesses in the vintage industry across the UK.

TVG NEWSLETTER WRITER RACKS UP 60,000 READERS A WEEK

If leading the digital industry wasn’t enough, she found time to run the highly successful TVG Magazine weekly – the newsletter in which big events from rockabilly raves, vintage festivals and glamorous fashion shows were covered by a team of budding journalists waiting to hit the big time.

PERSONAL LIFE AND PROJECTS

The pioneering newsletter, without fail, ran for 5 years solid, never missing a week and clocking up in the first six months of publishing, a shocking 60,000 readers a week.

In her personal life, she remarkably took on the challenge of campaigner for a number of personal projects and charities close to her heart, the most important of all of these was Autism since her own son was diagnosed in 2011.

Taking her professional qualifications in these field, she became the U.K’s leading CBT therapist in treating Autism, chronic illnesses and depression; all three she has known, first-hand!

She also travelled to the U.S where she became one of the very few British NLP Practitioners to be trained directly under Dr Matt James at the Association of Integrative Psychology.

Being the mother of an autistic child encouraged her to fuse both British and American studies in therapy for the condition and adapted them to give the world her unique perspective on 21st Century psychology.

Michelle sits on the members board for the Maudsley And South London NHS Trust and is a campaigner for mental health awareness in the workplace.

BOOKS AND RADIO BROADCASTING

A certified Life and Business Management Coaching, again, one of very few in the country, she has also studied and mastered for her own interest, Shamanistic Theories and Past Life Regression.

None of her professional goals have stopped her penning a large array of self-help books on everything from Asperger’s Syndrome to Autism, Communication Skills and Psychology titled ‘Cause and Effect.’

Her #1 Best Selling Amazon creation ‘HOW TO TURN YOUR CHILD’S AUTISM AROUND AND SAVE MONEY’ rocketed up the the asperger's guide to living herecharts pushing some of the leading names of Wellbeing and Self Help off the top slot in 2015.

She has written e-books and publicly spoken on national radio about her life with M.E and the strategies she used to go back to being fitter than she ever was.

A loyal and trusted marketing and PR consultant, she has worked with businesses as far away as Australia and the Far East, pushing cultural boundries and helping to support people from challenged backgrounds to build profitable businesses. From private to public sector, not job has been too scary or too challenging.

How To Cope With Stress At Christmas

Mums, Dads, carers everywhere. Christmas Day can be the most stressful time of the year. You’ve been up since 2am cooking and low and behold, you’ve forgotten to get the Christmas pud. With 13 people descending at lunchtime and all the shops shut, you have no hope in pulling of their best Christmas yet.

It is tough to keep a smiling face going, and its easy to forget just how much they all do love you. You might be cook, cleaner, tidy-upper and tea maker when everyone else is falling asleep, but getting any thanks might be slim. So take a deep breath. And relax. This is a special message just for you…

My child needs to improve their social skills – but which ones do I start with first?

My child needs to improve their social skills – but which ones do I start with first?

This is quite a common question in my practice and one I am keen to address today for you!

There really is a simple answer to this and it uses a step by step method that I often use with my own son, Jon and clients who I work with and their children. As social skills is really a generic term which covers a multitude of areas, using a simple sheet to mark out which skills your child excels in first is the best way to start the process.

In the following table, I have started off for you how a social skills monitor would look like for your child:

SOCIAL SITUATIONS WHICH THEY ARE GOOD AT                                                                   SOCIAL SITUATIONS WHICH NEED WORK

Talking to friends at school Talking to adults they don’t know so well (shop assistants, waiters, bus drivers etc)
Talking to teachers Listening to others when they talk (conversation)
Talking to family members Eye contact with talking to me (parents)
Reading someone’s emotions (happy, sad) Initiating play
Saying hello and goodbye (with or with prompting.) Sharing toys
Saying sorry Attending birthday parties
Following simple instructions at school from a teacher Asking others to join in with play

You might want to go a bit further in assessing on what level your child is on each column by using stickers (stars, ticks) to show the level of how well your child is doing for that area.

There is no hard and fast rule about which area takes priority over another. That needs to be down to you. I suggest the best thing to do is look at the barriers that may be holding your child back in an important area – school, for example and classroom situations. It would be more important to work on listening skills are school and more effective play, for example, than working on your child’s interaction at birthday parties.

Please do let me know how you get on and if you have any worries or questions you would like to ask. I would love to hear from you! Just use the form below and let me know what you would like to know!
