Michelle Powell – Consultant, Careers Counsellor, Creative

I am passionate that children and young people are heard, are supported with making career decisions and can have a clear sense of direction. I support parents and carers to help their child transition to the next step of education. I help young people get over the barriers that get in the way of their success. I collaborate with others to make sure that young people are not passed from pillar to post.

EXPRESSIONSBYM CIC is the realisation of a vision that I have long held and now birthed which is to create a space where I can work in partnership with others to improve the social, economic, and mental health outcomes of children and young people and to promote inclusion.

I am an experienced and competent Careers Practitioner qualified at Level 6 and have over 20 years’ experience of working with young people in community and educational settings. I have delivered careers education, advice, and guidance and, employability training to a range of clients across mainstream and special schools, pupil referral units, residential homes, secure units and in CAMHS schools across the UK.

My enthusiasm and passion to provide holistic careers support has developed into providing consultancy and staff training to schools and organisations who work with those with additional support needs. We come together to create safe and inclusive spaces where all young people can be offered supportive and personal career counselling to reach their full potential and achieve their goals.
