Short-term or long-term counselling to adults, in English or French
My approach is thoughtful, creative and sensible.
I initially trained in integrative counselling, drawing on the psychodynamic, person-centered and transpersonal theoretical teachings. As I developed my practice, I’ve grown an interest in ecopsychology and imagination, and more recently in nonlinear therapy. In practice, this means that I believe each client is a unique individual and I adapt the work in consequence. I work in a holistic way, attending not only to your thoughts, but also to your feelings, sensations and imagination. I also consider the working relationship between us as central to the therapy.
Human beings are like fine ecosystems and sometimes we are thrown out of balance and feel overwhelmed, lost or in need of clarification. And if you're reading these lines, I imagine that's because you're going through a difficult time. Taking the first step to get support is often a challenging one, but it's also a courageous one. And sharing your thoughts and feelings in a warm and confidential space can be beneficial. Exploring together what's troubling you might mean looking at your present and past experiences and relationships, as well as your place in the wider world and your more unconscious processes. Everything that makes your story personal and singular. At times, I might suggest to work with images, dreams, visualizations or nature-based practices to further explore what’s troubling you and support you.
I’ll provide you with a space where you can talk freely, while being supported in an empathic, exploratory and, when appropriate, challenging way. My hope is to help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your environment and identify new resources, thus retrieving a greater freedom in your choices and a stronger sense of self.
