I have been practising as a psychotherapist for the past three years, after training for four years in an integrative theoretical school. Prior to my Counselling Diploma I gained a Bachelor Degree of Science in Psychology and I am a member of the British Psychological Society(BPS). From my degree I covered a broad range of different psychological theories (Cognitive, Behaviourism, Physiological...) that I integrate in my therapeutic work according to the needs of my clients.
I believe it is important for a Psychotherapist and a counsellor to have both qualifications and practical experience and it is also important to have a broad life experience. I am French and moved to London in 2003. I gained my qualification here and work with clients in English and in French.
I have worked in Health care for more than 8 years, both as Cognitive Rehab Practitioner for Brain Injury and Neurological Condition patients, and as a Supervisor. I have particular experience working with clients with life changing situations, and going through emotional distress due to long term illness. I work with a wide variety of clients dealing with a range of issues in their life who have needed help to find clarity and guidance in developing ways of coping with their problems and struggles.
Thanks to my studies I am a graduate member of the BPS (BPS) and also registered with the BACP (BACP).
I also practice as a Loss Counsellor for Carer Support Merton (CSM) in Mitcham where I provide 1 to 1 counselling sessions to carers experiencing a loss. Those are short focus intervention limited to 8 sessions. The carer has to be experiencing the grief of losing the person they were caring for or for clients experiencing the loss of their caring responsibilities.
Qualifications and experience.
I offer a holistic approach looking at your difficulties or painful life experiences as well as the underlying causes which have caused you to experience life through your unique perspective.
Being able to talk privately and confidentially with an empathic non-judgemental listener can bring about a significant resolution of your worries and fears and provide you with the tools to face similar situation in the future.
Mes Diplomes et Experiences
J'ai plus de huit ans d'expérience en tant que spécialiste en rehab cognitive auprès de personnes souffrant de pathologies neurologiques.
Je suis psychothérapeute et conseiller depuis trois ans.
Avec mes clients, j'ai eu l'occasion d'aborder de nombreux sujets sensibles: les abus subis pendant l'enfance, le deuil, la dépression, l'anxiété, la gestion de la colère, l addiction à la pronographie, les difficultés relationelles, la sexualité, les interrogations liées à la foi, la spiritualité, etc.
Pour nombre de mes clients le fais de pouvoir aborder ces sujets dans un cadre qui leur inspire confiance, sans craindre d'être jugée, leur a permis de se sentir mieux dans leur peau et d'apporter des changement constructif dans leurs vie, tout au long de leur thérapie.
