I was never destined to become a counsellor. Having grown up in the French countryside, where mental health is a thing that none talks about, I went on to live my adult life thinking that you just need to keep going, whatever comes your way. That was until 2017, when I severely burnt out after experiencing workplace bullying, then was the victim of a traffic accident that led me to develop chronic pain. I could not make sense of the emotional, mental and physical turmoil that I was thrown into. It was only thanks to my new passion for the mind, body and soul, and finding the right professional support, that I was able to heal.
Counselling, for me, is about empowering you through unpacking how events, experiences and people have impacted you and led to your current thoughts, feelings and body sensations. I work from a person-centred approach and aim to meet you where you are at and work with you using the tools and therapies that I believe are best suited to your needs and goals.
Whatever is causing you to struggle, you have come to the right place. Having had my fair share of challenges, I want you to know that you are not alone and you deserve to be supported to heal and rise up, stronger than you have ever been. Please reach out for a free 20-minute phone chat to discuss your context and if we could be a good fit for each other.
Le counselling n'existe pas en France alors que je crois sincèrement qu'on en a tou.te.s besoin à un moment (ou plusieurs moments) dans nos vies. J'aime dire qu'un counsellor, c'est un psy pour les situations du quotidien. Voici des exemples de situations pour lesquelles je peux vous aider: Ruptures amoureuses ou amicales, déménagement, changement de pays, perte soudaine d'un travail, deuil quelconque, harcèlement ou maltraitance au travail, crise d'identité, parents qui vieillissent dans un autre pays, vouloir des enfants ou non, pouvoir en avoir ou non.
J'aime dire que plutôt que de mettre des étiquettes sur des symptômes, il vaut mieux chercher ce qui se cache derrière. Ce qu'on appelle "dépression ou anxiété" ont très souvent des raisons d'exister, à cause d'évènements, de relations, etc. J'ai pour but de vous aider à avoir de la compassion envers vous-même et vous donner le droit d'être qui vous êtes.
Que vous me contactiez moi ou quelqu'un d'autre, je veux juste que vous sachiez que vous n'avez pas besoin de souffrir seul.e. Je suis bien placée pour dire que la thérapie a changé ma vie - chose que je n'aurais jamais cru, ayant grandi en Champagne-Ardenne avec la croyance que, quand la vie devient dure, tu te tais et tu avances.
