Services

One's PLACE is a central question in my clinical practice, choices of training and professional experiences. Whether it's helping people find their place in their lives, in their environment, or who are questioning the place they have occupied, I see the resolution of this problem as central to reducing suffering and the path to relief. Thus, the specialties listed below, very different in appearance , are closely linked to this question of  meaning of in life (personal, professional) and the adequacy between our daily life and our aspirations. This obvious question in perinatal health, work psychology or bereavement, seems to me just as central in anxiety and depressive disorders, or burn-out, where there is a misalignement between the current place and  the place we would like to occupy (or external pressure on the place we "should occupy"). It also resurfaces in trauma, where, following a brutal event, our thoughts about ourselves, the world and others are shaken.

Fields of specialisation

Perinatal

One-off or long-term support around parenting issues such as difficulty conceiving, establishing the parent-child bond, the consequences of traumatic childbirth, postpartum depression, termination or bereavement.

Anxiety and Depression

From reactionnal stress and low mood to characterized disorders such as depression, obsessive-compulsive disorders, generalized anxiety disorders, etc. I offers a patient centered approach: such as brief support therapy, a cognitive and behavioral therapy protocol or a compassionate space for reflection for those who seek meaning and purpose.

Trauma

Coping with a traumatic event (or series of events) can significantly impact the course of life and should not be ignored. Depending on the incident, the time elapsed, the memory you have left and the number of events, I will offer an appropriate form of support.

The individual at work

Whether it's suffering at work, a desire for development or a need for a space to reflect on your career and a possible change of profession, you will be supported in your professional journey. Coaching can be particularly suited to this area of work.

Integrative Approach

 

In the fields of psychology and psychotherapy, there are several schools of thoughts and therefore of practices. We talk about integrative psychology when the clinician you consult is trained in several approaches and adapts the care offered according to the person's needs and problems, by combining the different models together to offer an individualised treatment plan. I am continuously training to the various areas of cognitive and behavioral therapy (including acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness, schema therapy), humanistic therapy, EMDR and trauma treatment. , adding training to specific issues (expatriation, perinatal care, adaptation of therapies during adolescence, etc.).
 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapies (CBT)

 

Cognitive and behavioral therapies, generally shorter and more symtpom focused than more traditional methods such as psychoanalysis, are a field in constant evolution, which in its more recent developments includes ACT (Acceptance and Commitment) therapy, mindfulness, mindfulness therapy, diagrams etc. The emphasis is placed on understanding the link between our thoughts (cognitions), our emotions and sensations, and our behaviors. It is a therapy generally anchored in the present (with the exception of work on patterns and trauma) and which implies a change (in behaviors, symptoms, or the vision one has of oneself and of the world). ​

 

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Initially developed in the context of psychotraumatology, this approach helps the brain to process memories that are poorly processed and therefore poorly or  not integrated at all. In other words, it helps “digest” the difficult moments in our lives. During the active phase of the treatment, the patient is invited to return to the traumatic memory in all its components (sensation, emotion, negative thought about it), under rapide bilateral stimulation (movements or tapping). Recent studies show that this approach is also beneficial in anxiety and depressive disorders, eating disorders, chronic pain, low self-esteem and even bereavement.
