FAQ & Contact

Do you have any question about therapy?

You may have heard about psychotherapy. Therapy offers a learning space where your development is much deeper and more comprehensive. As a clinical psychologist, I help you address your whole personal identity (including body, mind and soul) and facilitates deep changes in beliefs, moods, feelings and thoughts thanks to a greater self-awareness. With therapy, your personal growth as a whole is the goal. Seeking help from mental health professionals wether to cope with mental health issues or support personal development is common, do not hesitate to take the first step and to contact me if you need an english speaking therapist.

As a clinical psychologist, my role is to provide a healthy and safe space where you can learn, experiment, and grow. Depending on the goals and nature of your request for help, a therapist can function as an expert, a mentor, an educator on mental health issues to offer effective and evidence-based treatments. However, a therapist is first and foremost a guide with first-hand experience in many issues – to an extent an equal partner who recognizes your experience and discovers with you a path to healing and growth.

With 15 years of experience working as an english speaking therapist, I was trained to work with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming Therapy, Gestalt therapy, Transactional Analysis, Senso-motoric therapy, Systemic Therapy and Systemic Constellations, Bioenergetic therapy and Psychodrama. All those tools help in achieving a successful therapy. The therapy can take place in person or with online sessions.
