Hello, my name is Michelle Genders. I’m a provisional psychologist based on the Mid-North Coast of New South Wales, Australia. 

I completed a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) from 1997 to 2000 directly after completing high school. Since then, I’ve gained 20 years professional work experience in the fields of psychology research, employment services, child protection and disability support.

I also completed a Bachelor of Visual Art (Honours) from 2006 to 2009. I’ve presented solo art exhibitions, participated in group art exhibitions and contributed to the Sydney art community. Creating and viewing art continues to be one of my passions.

In 2018, I decided to upgrade my psychology qualifications. From 2019 to 2021, I’m undertaking a practical internship (known as the 4 + 2 program) to become a fully registered psychologist. 

In my current role, I provide individualised support to young people age 12 to 25 years as part of the Rural Young Minds service. In my previous role, I provided tailored support to people age 17 to 65 years receiving unemployment benefits as part of a service called Back2Work.

My other interests include meditation, yoga, singing, dancing, swimming, bushwalking and visiting new places. The photos in this post were taken on a trip to Oregon, USA.
