About me

Are you feeling lost, anxious, depressed, excessively angry or stuck? Are you seeking help to deal with whatever life has thrown at you?

If so then you are in the right place. You are not alone and I am here to give you my full support as a Gestalt Psychotherapist if you decide to take it.

I can offer you Online counselling and psychotherapy and can easily be reached with just one click. I am able to offer you Online counselling and psychotherapy and I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period depending of what you feel you may require.

Research has shown that Online or telephone therapy can be equally as effective as in-person treatment.

Why?

You might feel more inclined to be confident on screen.
You might get to the point more quickly. It is sometimes a relief not to be in the same room as the therapist.
More flexibility to meet your needs and your lifestyle.
Eliminates commuting time and scheduling hassles.

The fact that it is online doesn’t prevent us from creating a strong alliance in supporting you to regain balance.

I work with Zoom, Skype and Google Meet but you can also reach me for free on WhatsApp. +3469655259

What I have to offer: the Gestalt approach

I provide a safe place for you to take time to breathe, observe, listen, explore and express what needs to be expressed while always respecting confidentiality.

I offer you a place to be heard and understood, a place to share your feelings and also to experiment, in order to accept the person you are and to help you create the person you want to be.

The goal of psychotherapy is not to change you, change is your choice.

My intention is to raise awareness in the here and now of how you relate to the world, others and also yourself.

As Gestalt is a holistic process, I view the person as a totality of mind, body, emotions and spirit who experiences reality in a way unique to themselves;

As these aspects are equally important, I will endeavour to focus your attention on each of them.

Further information

Originally a French qualified teacher from Lille, working abroad in international schools and in business settings with young children and adults in France, Tunisia and England. I retrained as a Gestalt Psychotherapist in the UK and relocated to Barcelona after living many years in London. I studied at Regent’s college and obtained my Master's Degree at the Metanoia Institute and Middlesex University in London. While in the UK, I gained experience working for various organisations, providing therapy for NHS patients presenting with diverse issues (loss and mourning, suicidal thoughts, post traumatic stress, depression, addictions, schizophrenia and LGBTQA issues).

Furthermore, I am also interested in hypnotherapy and have 200 hours of experience with Hypnotherapy Training International.

Since 2018 I have worked in Barcelona where I have my private practice. I also offer my therapeutic support to a charitable organisation barcelonactua.org helping refugees.
