Meet the lawyer who works in fairyland

supporting businesses that don't fit in boxes
to create and enjoy their happy-ever-after.
I'm Michelle Whitehead,
the founder of Carefree Counsel.

I make best practice EASY & FUN for brilliant business owners.

I'd love to meet you.

My mission is to support you - from a heartspace of love and connection - to create firm business foundations.
I mentor you in wise management & best practice, so that you can build a legacy as the leader you were destined to be.

I work with businesses that don't fit in boxes: the change-makers, the rebels, the healers, the visionaries.
The ones who colour outside the lines. The ones who want to tame dragons & ride unicorns into the sunset. 

You deserve to stand strong as the confident, empowered, compassionate business owner you are destined to be, 
and your clients deserve the clarity, certainty and consistency they get when you caringly communicate your bold boundaries.

Are you building a business that supports the lifestyle you love,
without sacrificing yourself, your integrity, or your relationship with your clients?

I am here for YOU!

Looking for something specific?

or you are very welcome to wander around & explore.


Gosh – I NEVER thought I would say that I actually LOVE a contract. But I actually do. This feels incredibly safe, nurturing, respectful and has so much integrity. Love Love Love It!

Batch it crazy

I adored working with Michelle. She has a very unique way of blending traditional legal work with the sacred, creating agreements which feel heartfelt and are based on client connection.

Want to work with me?

I am a romantic who wants the "Happy Ever After", not the mess that's left behind when a relationship breaks down. That's why - even though I am a real lawyer - I don't go to court, I don't write threatening letters, and I don't get involved in conflict unless you are trying to make amends and seek win-win solutions. 

My practice focuses on supporting you and your business to be the best you can be - to communicate clearly, set bold boundaries, work in alignment with integrity, and prioritise care, connection and informed consent. 

When we do this well, not only is your business set up thrive far into the future, you are more likely to be protected against the kinds of problems that can harm you & your clients.

Legal advice and contract drafting is, therefore, only a tiny part of what I offer.

I provide mentoring and coaching in best practice (combining ethics & integrity with boundaries & practical principles), risk management (transforming threats into opportunities to grow & evolve), handling conflict with compassion and setting your business up to leave a legacy that lasts beyond your lifetime.
