If you are reading this page it is probably because you already have your own reason to think about therapy. In my consulting room I will put you first and will engage with you in a relationship based upon confidentiality, and openness.
I am, what we call in our jargon, an integrative counsellor and my approach to counselling draws from different theoretical orientations which are philosophical, person-centred, existential and psychodynamic.
There are many ways of speaking and thinking about therapy and everybody's needs are different.
Whereas some come to therapy for a specific problem such as relationship issues, anxiety, eating disorder or depression for example, others come because they are questioning and/or in search for meaning in their life.
Being French I initially trained in finance and economics and I worked 15 years in Paris in the financial area. This is probably why I have developed a particular interest in life transition.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
