About Michael Finn
Wisdom from the past… solutions for your future
Michael’s practice in Chinese Medicine and Counselling brings the past and present together. His clients benefit from a unique combination of knowledge accumulated over centuries, into acupuncture and herbal medicine, alongside contemporary evidenced-based research findings in counselling. This is the best of both worlds when it comes to the goal of wellbeing.
These two modalities operate together to enable physical, emotional and mental wellbeing, and to optimise our skills in maintaining relationships, through connectedness, self-awareness and contentment, the essential ingredients of quality of life.
Healing means both a release from pain and discomfort and education in new ideas and habits, designed to encourage a preventative, proactive lifestyle.
Michael’s practice now spans forty years. For his clients, this means an assurance of care, wisdom and advice they can trust. There is no substitute or short cut to clinical experience.
At the coalface
The focus is on clients’ experiences with pain, discomforts, illness, depression, anxiety, grief, loss, mood disorders, and stress-related conditions. These are often a gateway to patterns of chronic pain and dis-ease.
Michael’s work is with individuals, couples and families who are struggling to stay together and need fresh ideas to navigate impasses and challenges on the journey of short or long-term relationships.
No Stone Unturned
Michael engages in a thorough assessment of every client’s physical symptoms, emotional processes, medical and personal history. Each person’s unique situation is seen in their personal context, which is the key to successful outcomes.
