Workshop Presenters

Michelle Araujo, Dip., MSc, MBACP

Internationally acclaimed as a psychic, often travelling all over the world whilst running a successful private practice in London as a psychotherapist, Michelle Araujo has truly aligned with her purpose, inspiring many to explore the fascinating realms of mind and soul. A natural born psychic, her outstanding abilities can impress even the most sceptics of us. Her unique approach and authenticity has been acknowledged by her many clients who leave her private sessions and workshops feeling uplifted and with an incredible sense of clarity.     


As a Post graduated psychotherapist, she has explored in depth the parallels between therapy and spiritual practices, concluding that the tools used by therapists and psychics have a lot in common and the outcomes are also very similar: renewed sense of purpose and identity and improvement in the capacity to reflect about one’s place in life. Her efforts resulted in the creation of her own method of internal analysis that combines elements of Jungian theories with the rich mysticism of the Tarot. 


Michelle adopts a non guru approach: she is there to facilitate, not to give you unwanted advice, tell you what to do or interfere with your choices. 


In 2017 she was awarded with the All Ladies League Award for Creating Bonds Beyond Boundaries and Faiths in New Delhi, India.  In the same year Michelle was elected as one of the 8 Things To Do by What’s On Dubai during her visit. In 2018 she co-authored Breakthrough – Secrets of Growth, Happiness and Bouncebacks from Women Around the World; writing an inspiring chapter about her own transition from hardship and uncertainty to success and fulfilment in her chosen profession.  

"Whether I am travelling the world as a Tarot reader, being fully present in the therapy room or facilitating a thrilling workshop, her aim is to provide a space where you can be supported and appreciated in your quest." - Michelle Arujo
