Counselling Psychotherapy and Coaching
I am passionate about my work and believe it is effective, having witnessed my clients' capacity to change and evolve. My own life is a testimony to the fact that it is possible to surmount difficult situations and grow from them.
Born in South Africa, I have lived in London - where I gained my Diploma in Counselling, Psychology and Psychotherpy - and in Paris, where I have settled and established my practice. So I understand the difficulties of adapting to foreign cultures and languages. My life has contained a great deal of loss and grief and many challenges, and I believe this helps me to understand and empathise with my clients. My philosophy is that the most important is not always what happens to us but how we live with the experience and learn from the events in our lives.
In my training as a counsellor, I have studied various approaches and you will find a brief description of these on the Counselling Service page. I continue to study and to keep up to date with new approaches and techniques in order to provide the best possible service to my clients. My priority is their well-being, and I strive to help them in any way I can to reach their goal.
