04 67 72 69 10 / 06 51 00 50 07
I have been receiving
clients privately since 2006, and worked in Child Protection for 8 years
in Montpellier. I offer counselling for adults and adolescents in English or in French.
Raised in London, I have lived in Montpellier for several years. I
trained as a clinical psychologist both in England and in France.
In my private practice my preferred approach is CBT (Cognitive
Behavioural Therapy), which focuses on identifying and resolving the
specific difficulties you are currently facing : depression, phobia,
anxiety, relationships, eating disorders, difficulties at school, in the
work place... The techniques adapt easily to a vast range of issues and
allow the client to become an active participant in the therapeutic
process. According to several validated studies, CBT offers a more rapid
success rate” than most other approaches. I also draw on Systems Theory
(the study of relationships rather than individuals), Transactional
Analysis and Psychodynamic Theory.
are face-to-face and interactive. They are completely confidential. My
to provide the most appropriate support and tools for each individual
client so that, together, we can confront and find the best approach and
solutions depending on the client’s needs, personality and availability.
In my experience, the best rhythm is once / week or once / two weeks,
especially if the client is prepared to do work - mutually defined -
between meetings. If we have already worked together in the past, I
offer top up sessions as necessary.
