Wellness Beyond Borders
I am working with women and minors by choice
Always considering their cultures & sub-cultures from their country of origin, host-country/countries, family, current life environment ... that shape their thoughts, behaviours, memories
Specific work around Loss & Death
Specialised in Trauma, Severe Anxiety, Severe Depression
and their consequences;
Working with the 'bodily signatures' that are our life wise witnesses
Before becoming a psychotherapist, I have been working
as a social worker in France and
as a life Coach in France and in Brazil
Working as an Integrative Therapist;
The most important is to listen to you and Be With You; that is what I call an Active Presence.
I give an important focus to the body in my work: all the different messages that it offers you as well as validating the fact that it needs to physically move: Emotions need motion
Your body can process any unprocessed emotions
This is following the latest research in Neuroscience
Adequate Common Sense and Humour are real Ingredients in my work.
My previous professional roles, that you can read below, give me a diverse experience and expertise on techniques, approaches, grids of analysis and specific populations or symptoms.
As individuals, we all live with our beliefs built along our life; we are coloured with what I call our borders, which are our different referential systems: cultures, sub-cultures ...
In my work, I may use my trainings as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and my Salad Bowl Theory, or chose EMDR, EFT, Ego State Therapy, Wholefulness = Mindfulness & Bodyfulness, NLP or one of I aquired in my previous professions. The idea is that there is a rationale in the choice and a fluidity to adapt to whatever might appear.
Before we decide to work together, I am asking you to phone me, so we can both evaluate if we are happy to start the therapy path together.
