I value every one of my clients and always strive to create a friendly and positive partnership where they are made to feel safe, accepted and treated with respect.

When helping you move towards the change you desire, we first discuss and analyze your particular needs during an initial consultation. We then tailor-make a solution that is the best fit for you and your personality.

To deliver the best possible results, I use a combination of complementary therapeutic tools and approaches:

Internal Family Systems (IFS)

IFS is an integrative approach to psychotherapy developed by Richard C. Schwartz in the 1980s which describes the human psyche as multi-faceted, consisting of different parts each with its own qualities and a consciousness (Self) to manage them.

These parts may have opposing goals, for example, one part wants to move forward and another part just wants to be left alone.

IFS will seek to clarify the situation by enabling us to recognise which parts are involved, how they interact with each other and with the system, what emotions accompany them and what their needs are.

Gottman Method Couples Therapy

The Gottman Method is a science-based approach to couples’ therapy that draws upon 40 years of scientific research involving more than 3,000 couples. It is a structured form of counselling that includes a thorough assessment of the relationship and integrates interventions designed to overcome harmful barriers, repair past hurt and promote positive change. The goal of the Gottman Method is to increase intimacy, respect and understanding and to address conflict productively so that couples can enjoy a healthy, happy relationship.

Photo therapy

Photo therapy is an approach developed by Elodie Sueur-Monsenert, Body Psychotherapist. It is a “therapeutic method that aims to repair self-esteem, to reconcile with one’s image, and to accept oneself as one is through the support of photographs or a mirror. »


Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

A form of brief therapy, CBT is a type of talk therapy that acts on three components: thoughts, emotions and behaviours. The aim is to change behaviour by becoming aware of the emotions and thoughts associated with it. This approach focuses more on how the problem will be solved than on the causes of the problem.

“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.”
