Positive Discipline Helpline

 Michelle McHale

Michelle McHale

  • Personalised phone and email support from the APUK founder and creator of the Positive Discipline online course
  • A neutral fresh perspective on what you’re looking to improve right when you need it
  • 30 minute phone sessions (or longer) to fit into busy lives and reduced rates when you book 3 x 30 minute sessions
  • Sessions can be taken up whenever the need arises
  • Support from the comfort of your home at a time to suit, in a confidential context

How does the helpline work?

My intention is to listen to your situation, ask questions inviting you to connect with your innate understanding and make suggestions, sometimes practical, as a way of moving through whatever challenges you may be meeting.

If I feel your challenge requires specific professional support I can refer to AP-friendly sleep consultants, for example.

I don’t refer to therapists or counsellors but would suggest professional coaching with Michael if you’re looking to go deeper into your enquiry. Rather than focussing on specific child behaviours, Michael supports parents and couples to regain and maintain their mental and emotional well-being so they can maximise their capacity to protect, care and love their children.

We can work much more efficiently in a phone session than via email – for this reason I suggest phone conversation over email. In the unusual event that you’re unable to speak we can discuss email options.

I am usually available by mobile or landline in the UK. I can also take international calls using Skype or Viber.

I am a fluent Spanish speaker and am happy to offer sessions in Spanish.


Once you’ve seen my hours (question below) send me an email specifying your preferred time and day as well as your desired number of sessions.

I will then let you know if that slot is available and we’ll go from there!


Calls are by pre-arrangement only and are paid in advance.

My morning hours are 9.30am-11.30am on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

My afternoon hours are 1.00pm-2.30pm on Tuesdays.

Payments are made in advance via Paypal.

1 x 30 minute session costs £20.

3 x 30 minute session (to be used whenever you need) costs £50.

When you make contact to let me know your preferred slot and number of sessions I will send you payment details.

“This provides a warm-hearted fresh perspective for challenges that don’t have any obvious solutions. Having someone experienced in Positive Discipline who is dedicated to listening and understanding a personal situation can be priceless.”
