Michelle Elman

Award-winning Body Positive Activist, Body Confidence Coach & Founder of Mindset For Life

Accredited life coach and body positivity activist, Michelle Elman is no stranger to the public spotlight. Michelle began her career as a life coach when she established Mindset For Life in 2014. Since first establishing her ethos as a life coach she has used her qualification of Master Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner and her Psychology degree to expand her empire.

Michelle has created successful campaigns that have captured the attention of the masses. Her most notable campaign was called Scarred Not Scared, which came into fruition after she decided there was little representation for people who had scars. After having many surgeries herself, Michelle felt that she should share her experiences to make people feel that they were not alone.

Michelle can be described as a passionate and vocal individual, which has landed her many appearances on TV and Radio worldwide. Michelle has been on Sky News, Channel 4 News, Channel 5 News, BBC Radio London and Loose Women sharing her expert opinions.

Not only does Michelle hold a reputation as a TV and Radio personality, but she has also earned a reputation as a prolific speaker with an impressive roster of events at which she has spoken. She has spoken at Summer In The City, Women’s Health Live, Leeds Yoga & Wellness Festival and Stylist Live. She has also spoken for many well-established brands such as The Body Shop, Lush, Tresemme, Dove, Paramount, Kia, Sony Music, Boohoo, Simply Be, Always and Katy Perry Fragrances. She has also completed charity work for Teenage Cancer Trust and Ditch The Label.

Michelle has also turned her hand to writing, publishing her own book called Am I Ugly? in 2018. Additionally, in 2018 at the Yours Awards she was given the title of Body Positive Activist Of The Year.

“Michelle shares her story – and discusses the sensitive, emotive issues around it – with eloquence, care and humour. In July 2018 I hosted a panel about body confidence (aligned with Women’s Health’s #InShapeMyShape campaign) and she was a total asset to the discussion. What I particularly liked about having Michelle up there was her tolerance and understanding of people (especially those approaching the conversation from a very different vantage point) not knowing everything – or using the correct terminology. She has that rare balance of qualities that I see as vital for thoughtful discussion: a readiness to challenge people and make the case for her point of view, but the sensitivity and warmth to do so in a collaborative way. I will certainly be calling on Michelle again for speaking arrangements and heartily recommend that you do too.”Roisín Dervish-O’Kane, Commissioning Editor, Women’s Health Magazine

“Michelle was invited to speak about Battling Body Image and Surviving with Scars at our Find Your Sense of Tumour Weekend for young people who have or had cancer .  Body Image is an important issue for our young people and Michelle provided some fantastic guidance and insights and really resonated with the audience.  We are hoping she will come again!” Katie Rawlins, Teenage Cancer Trust

“Michelle was invited to speak at our first Feminine Superpowers event on the topic of “Calming Your Inner Rollercoaster”. She wowed our audience with her authentic, warm delivery and a story which is worthy of a Hollywood Blockbuster. Her ability to connect and engage with a wide demographic is her SuperPower!”Michelle Zelli, Feminine Superpowers

“On behalf of Millennium Point, I am writing to thank you for undertaking the Metaprogramme Elicitation for the Executive Team. The team have fed back and have asked me to let you know that they found it to be incredibly insightful and useful. It was good hearing about and talking through the dynamics around the questionnaire and it is something we will be able to build upon and be mindful of moving forward. It was well delivered and very productive for the team.”Vanessa Currie, Millennium Point

“Michelle gave us a really honest and emotional talk about her way of finding happiness and how to be perceived  as a successful person. It was one of the best motivational talk that I have ever heard in this kind of event. The audience was excited and I was really moved when Michelle told us about her illness and then the hard work to become a self-confident and positive-minded girl. If you ever have the chance to hear this story, don’t hesitate! Everyone can find happiness, Michelle will tell you how to do it, because she did it.“Ewa Galant
