Follow a fascinating story of cultural transition as well as deeper insight into the world of clinical and neuro psychology with Michelle Reid

Michelle grew up in Papua New Guinea with only black boys as friends, learning how to fight to make her way in the world, until she was shipped off to an all-girls white boarding high school in Queensland, which made for an abrupt transition.

Wanting to make further sense of the world, Michelle studied behavioural science at university which has led her where she is now being both a clinical and neuro psychologist.

She talks about how focusing on attachment styles and thinking patterns is central to her approach and how treatment follows 3 levels – developing coping skills, going into a trauma and future templating.

It is super rare to meet someone with such a unique background and listen to how that transition became the basis of her vocation today.
