I am of Lebanese origin born in Sierra Leone and grew up in France, Switzerland, Lebanon, and the United Kingdom. Multi-cultural and multi-lingual. I believe this to be important as it allows open-mindedness and flexibility in my therapeutic approach. As well as understanding the vastness and diversity of « the person » as a whole.
After obtaining my BA in Psychology and Politics and then an MA in Journalism in the UK, I decided to work in the corporate world before dedicating myself to raising my two children and moving to France in 2004. I ran a successful Gite business before going back to my original love and interest in therapy and psychology.
I retrained and experimented in many different approaches (Freud, C G Jung, Humanist approaches etc.) and finally decided that Sophro-Analysis was the approach that intergrated both the mind and body. I am passionate about this therapeutic technique that has the transformative power of taking on the full person in order for them to achieve autonomy and healing.
My greatest loves are books, poetry, travel, music, philosophy, mindfullness and of course the multi-dimensional aspects of psychotherapy with a strong inclusion of « The Body ». I am continuously training to improve myself and my skills. Inquisitive, deep thinking, feeling, intuitive and open with a respect for others in their diversity. Being a therapist is the natural and vocational path for me today and I strive to transmit that in my practice.
It is important that the client takes the initiative to come to sessions in an environment that is both peaceful and confidential.
