Michelle Roberton ~

Founder of Body Love Retreats.  Tantric Therapist Specialising in Sexual Trauma & Intimacy.

My Life has been my learning.   At the tender age of 46 and what appears many lifetimes later, I am not sure there is any life situation I cannot empathise with.

Life has taught me well with its tapestry of colours…

From a childhood of sexual abuse, anorexia, to drugs, to homelessness, to the loss of a son, from life threatening illness to near a death experience, from marriage to single parent hood, to the loss of both breasts.

But I sit here, writing to you hand on my heart, knowing I would not change a nano second of this life.

All these experiences have woven together, to enable me to share from an authentic place of “knowing how that tastes,”  and to offer an invitation to see beyond what may feel at times desperately hopeless and broken.

To be able to connect and “meet” the other, neck deep in their hell and offer a kind, knowing hand to show even the smallest glimpse of light …

Of another way.

This life has made me the woman I am today and enabled me to share and hold, from a place of raw and real bones.

From passion and soul.

Michelle Roberton is a mother of four superstars and a dedicated lover of all things delicious in life and chocolatey.  Her passion stems from her own journey of discovering the medicine in the poison as she set it upon herself to reclaim her body, her breath, her sexuality and sensuality and express that in new, life enriching ways.

Michelle has been a body worker and Tantric Therapist for 16 years.

She very much believes that our mind can only take us so far into any release of body trauma and healing of our sexuality. The discovery of who we authentically are is not hidden in our thoughts but in the sensuality and home of our body.

Her touch  has been described by many as her gift to others.

Her gentle, calming approach a comforting breath of fresh air.
