Face to face and online psychotherapy
I am a fully qualified and experienced psychotherapist working in English or in French. I hold an MSc degree in Gestalt Psychotherapy from Middlesex University. I offer short-term and long-term psychotherapy
depending on issues. I have a private practice and I work face-to-face with adults, couples, groups, young people and children with their families. I also offer online psychotherapy via Skype for English-speaking and French-speaking expatriates from anywhere in the world.

Relational and mindfulness-based Gestalt psychotherapy
I offer a safe, confidential, supportive and inclusive environment where you can feel free to talk about and explore your issues and struggles.
As a Gestalt psychotherapist, my practice framework is relational, existential and experimental. Promoting a therapeutic relationship is the primary focus of Gestalt psychotherapy and the key to change, growth and healing. I use mindfulness-based interventions. Emphasis is on your experience in the present moment supporting here-and-now mindful awareness, embodiment and insight, on creative experimentation and on dialogue.

As a registered member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and a member of the Collège Européen de Gestalt-thérapie (CEG-t), I abide by their Code of Ethics and Practice. I am committed to professional development through regular supervision and Continuing Professional Development.
