Henry Moore « Three Points » (1939-1940)

Before becoming a therapist, I had been working for more than twenty years as a journalist. I started my own therapy in 2006 – at first with an art-therapist and then with a psychoanalyst. During this ten-year journey came the idea that I might one day be able to help other people by way of therapy.

For more than eight years, I followed the courses of Centre interdisciplinaire de formation en psychothérapie relationnelle (Cifpr). I chose this particular school because it integrates several approaches: psychoanalysis, gestalt therapy, bioenergetics, group therapy. This “multi-referential” corpus helps the therapist to avoid a rigid theoretical framework.

I was an observer as well as an assistant in a therapy group in Paris for two and a half years. Since then, I have been facilitating a monthly group in Paris as a co-therapist in addition to participating in a supervision group also in Paris.

Sessions are around 50 minutes long and can be conducted either in French or English as well as in Paris or Nantes. Don’t hesitate to call me for a first session where we’ll get to know what brings you to a therapist. You will also be able to ask any questions about my practise and my framework.
