The Approach

A safe holding environment

You are at the centre of the sessions, not the theories. Of course, they are of great help but I do not promote or I am not in favour of a specific one. I work with you, at your own pace in your own time based on YOUR emotional needs and desires. I have been in therapy myself for many years and my deeper desire is to offer you a good-enough counselling service. This is based on talking therapy, so that you can share your feelings and worries in a safe and confidential space.

Counselling

Feeling stuck, incomplete? WHY? We both try to get to the bottom of your issues and understand their ROOTS. Once you are able to identify the roots of your current issues or of the self-limiting beliefs you may have, you can face any obstacles life throws at you for you know HOW to respond to them PERMANENTLY. This approachrequires more sessions. Counselling may be used for both spheres, personal and professional.

I was trained as a Certified Psychodynamic Counsellor in London where I luckily lived for over 10 years. Fully bilingual EN/FR. PAM accredited and core member of UK Ayanay Membership Body.

What does ‘Psychodynamic’ mean?

Psychodynamic interest in personal development focuses on the relatedness to self and others, the formation of character, and the place of emotions in the developping person. This approach helps the client to own his/her emotions, understand the impact on his/her life and on the relationships formed, paving the way to a well-rounded and happier self.

The counselling services I provide are based on the psychodynamic training I underwent. The approach is person-centrered using psychodynamic theories. Learn  more about the ‘psychodynamic’ approach here!

The coaching services help you get back on the right track with a bespoke plan/programme to help you reach YOUR goals and learn to live in the here and now, strengthening your skills and self-confidence.

I know how crucial it is to feel secure in the relationship you form with your counsellor and to be in a safe space.

Expatriation

When you move into an unfamiliar environment, your old habits are uprooted which in turn leads to a very disturbing inadequacy. This may cause psychological uncertainty, really tough to face in an unknown culture where no one seems to respond the same way you usually do.

Why have I become a Counsellor and Life Coach?

 
I have had to make tough decisions in my personal life. I felt the need to take a different path, to accept past experiences too. I must say the psychodynamic course I attended and the compulsory therapy I took for many years have been life-changing. Therapy opened my mind and truly changed my life positively.
 
All I want for others is to feel aligned with themselves, their own values -not anyone else’s. To some, it may be coming to terms with the grieving or wounded child inside; to others, it may be learning to live in the here and now with specific goals, or a combination of both.
 
Whatever your reasons are, I am here to help you achieve your goals!
 
My deepest desire is to show you ways to make you feel good & successful in every area of your life…
