ABOUT MICHELE GOWER
I'm a wife, a Mum of 4 kids ranging in age from 10 to 22, an Autism Parent Adviser, a Youth Mental Health Support Worker and Founder & CEO of a Youth Mental Health & Wellbeing Charity. I live on the beautiful Central Coast of NSW, Australia.
MY PASSION IS HELPING PEOPLE THRIVE
Over the years I've helped women through many issues, particularly in the areas of raising a child with autism, raising teenage boys, anxiety, fear, lack of self-esteem and self-worth, setting boundaries, finding their voice, and supporting them through mental health issues.
I can help you overcome barriers, push past limitations, get to the core of an issue, gain clarity, set boundaries, make informed choices, improve relationships, build your communication skills, learn more about your true self, which all helps towards developing into the strong and confident person that God wants you to be.
I've mentored and coached youth and young adults to help them overcome obstacles in their lives, many of which have gone on to achieve much more than they'd ever imagined possible.
As I've overcome my own mental health issues, I have lived experience on how terribly distressing and lost we can feel at times. I use this to approach my clients in a non-judgemental, caring and authentic way.
I established Lighthouse Family Support in response to the growing need for Christian-based mental health support for Mothers who are supporting their families. I'm a faithful Catholic and know that although life can be hard, but bringing God into our mess, always makes things better. Even if you don't believe in God, he believes in you!
I combine my 22 years of parenting, (including raising a son with autism), with my professional experience and qualifications to help women become their best selves, so they can support their family with peace, passion and purpose.
I truly believe, that given the right support, everyone has the capacity to thrive!
