Why trust Michelle Terrell to help you
become the best version of you and achieve
the healthiest relationships possible?
Michelle has been a health and wellness coach since 1995, making her a pioneer of the field. There was no such thing as “Life Coaches” back then and massage & healing arts were not yet viewed in as favorable a light as they are today.
At the time, her family was horrified she would consider “throwing away all that education to be ‘a healer”…whatever THAT was for goodness sake!”
Despite family objections, cultural ridicule and fear of the unknown, Michelle dropped out of careers in both the conventional counseling field and also walked away from teaching in the public school system forever.
Pursuing a trailblazing and progressive path as a healing & empowerment facilitator, allowed for more responsive, innovative and enjoyable methods to be used to support students/ a client base, toward their practical love & life goals.
When deciding on what type of emotional and educational growth support you want to utilize on your path, you have to keep in mind that coaching is a different thing from counseling.
And also, keep in mind, people that are traditionally educated, but that choose to go into coaching instead of using the old school conventional methods in very structured ways, are not going to operate and behave the way you may have come to expect becasue your point of reference is only that of the insurance billing counselors at a medical behavioral health clinic.
Thankfully, times have changed and now pro-active people can screen for credibility in more holistic ways, where the individual and ones own sensibilities can serve as the guide, rather than helplessly deferring to the system to determine value and credibility.
Things have shifted for the better in this modern era of self-publishing, YouTube, video chat, LiveStream broadcasts and social media. The potential client these days, has many, many more ways to vet a coach or heath provider beyond just what a license on a wall or website will reveal.
Coaches tend to be creative types and they think outside the box. They also don’t assume you should trust them just becasue they have a certificate on the wall, an intimidating office environment and have jumped through the governments hoops to get a stamp of approval.
Support services that don’t follow convention, can be amazing for some and way too uncomfortable for others. You have to be honest with yourself about what you need to feel safe and also challenged into growth.
Coaching with Michelle is mainly different, in that, her work and mission in life is based on the concept that people don’t need to be fixed, they prosper when offered choices, supported along, encouraged as they become more internally referenced and as they feel deeply understood.
Michelle’s particular style of coaching work, is all about helping people feel heard and offering practical, rubber-meets-the-road information, so that they can reach their full potential, enjoy enriched relationships and have meaningful lives now, rather than years and years of talk therapy.
Over two decades as a professional educator and in the field of wellness coaching, she has collected a massive record of data and the real life testimonials of thousands of good men, just like you, that were feeling lost and confused in their love lives.
She has documented the successes and failures of each interaction and the resulting outcomes of the application of her recommendations.
Her research evolved into the private practice Mind/Body integration coaching work described on this website today.
She travels to do guest speaking engagements, to teach at male empowerment workshops, provide state awareness coaching for professional athletes, as well as travels on tours to promote her books and audio home-study courses.
The foundation of her one-on-one private coaching work is hosted a Mesa, Arizona based business that provides life coaching for motivated men, using the male desire to connect with women, as fuel to do their self-discovery work.
Note from Michelle
If you are considering working with me one-on-one or digging into any of my free resources I would challenge you to ask yourself, does this feel like a YES on a gut level?
I say Trust your own gut instinct.
Read this site,
watch my videos,
listen to me answer questions from men just like you
decide for yourself if this is something you feel you would benefit from investing in further. All I can promise is, you will be better off for having invested some energy into research, than if you did not.
I would then ask you to do something that will feel very counter culture.
I will ask you to stay open to a new way of looking at how we do our important relationships, view sexual expression, evolve as human beings and stand in our personal integrity to create a better life.
All my degrees and credentials aside, my greatest asset toward helping you on your journey is that I have lived life as an attractive female human being which offers insights one can not gain any other way for this particular work, I am willing to share what I know with good men and most importantly, I am willing to tell it to you straight.
I have lived and loved in this world for 50+ years. I have loved and lost. Yet I still, I have a heart for men.
I feel this as a calling to this unique work. I wake up each day filled with passion and excited for the progress of my clients.
What is of value to me, beyond any of my many academic accomplishments, is the good faith of the men that have been in my care.
It has been my honor and also my burden to serve men, but always a welcomed learning experience.
It’s the men themselves that have shown up to teach me what I needed to know to become a master teacher in this work.
I have pulled my greatest assets from:
- Listening to the many stories of heartbreak men have shared with me in good faith.
- The gift of witnessing a significant shift take the place in clients, replacing a stuck perspective.
- Celebrating along side these men, as they make small but significant and also major strides in their lives.
- Watching confusion dissolve as it is replaced with the relief that comes from new found clarity.
- Emphatic hands-on observation of holding patterns in the body becoming unknotted.
These amazing men that have taught me everything that matters to men and this is my foundation. This is the value I bring to this ever evolving work.
The journey I have been on is worth more to me in my capacity to truly help men, than any college degree could provide.

My workshop students dubbed me The Pistol Whip Hippie because my teaching/coaching style is irreverent, in your face and radically honest (the Pistol Whip part) with the follow up being supportive, nurturing awakened energy (the Hippie part) that inspires men to strive to be their very best.
If a man can get past The Pistol Whip he can handle any woman at her most challenging.
If a man can learn to receive the depth of care this Hippie can dish out, then he can stay heart open, as any woman brings her fill range of feminine power to his life purpose.
Michelle’s Micro to Macro Mission
Global Harmony – One Healthy Relationship at a Time
The unique call on my life, which I have pursued professionally for the last 20 years, is to help men utilize the aspect of their life journey that includes women, for self-improvement and deep self-discovery.
There is no need to rehash boyhood wounds, but rather now is your time to focus forward on reigniting the warrior within you, though your journey with women.
I believe that if men are supported in their own empowerment they will provide loving leadership in their relationships. In turn, women, children and the needs of the whole world will be more fully met.
Men have SO much untapped potential!
