This autumn I’m
starting a women’s “circle” group for anglophone ladies
(of all ages) to come together once or twice a month and
connect in an ‘embodied way’. My background as a
movement psychotherapist enables me to work with the
body offering a variety of techniques to support
individuals and groups. I’ve called this “Holding Space”
because it is my intention to offer a place for women to
be authentic and safely held; to bring out the wisdom
within; to support each other; to offer each other
experiences, insights and perspectives which help move
us all towards positive change.
Perhaps you lack family support in France and would like
to feel a motherly, daughterly or sisterly connection?
Or you might simply be curious to know what it would be
like to be part of such a warm and creative group?
I’ve been working with groups for 20 years and am
committed in helping others discover ways to work
through and unblock the patterns that can hold us back.
Sometimes these patterns are unconscious and we struggle
to feel free and let go of what no longer enables us to
thrive. Letting go may sound easy but it’s sometimes the
most difficult part of change. It happens slowly when
we’re ready to learn and look at a situation with
courage, accepting that we can no longer continue in the
same way. This can sometimes be painful but the body has
a way of letting us know when to let go. The ‘embodied
approach’ will help you to connect with yourself and
others in a deeper way: knowing and opening your wisdom
and personal gifts which are rewarding to receive and
What might those difficulties look like for us to
feel and share?
Adjusting to a new country, separation, divorce, finding
work solutions, pregnancy, post-birth and
menopause-related issues (to name but a few) can lead to
feelings of isolation and depression. I also bring my
own experience as a woman, wife and mother as well as
therapist to the space where I hope to offer you a place
to be seen, witnessed and heard — and above all to feel
more confident in yourself.
The group’s purpose is to share experiences, offering
support and exchange ideas as we move through many of
life’s challenges, changes and struggles, as well as
My role to is to observe and direct these changes that
create inner currents and help you experience an
embodied connection, not just an emotional or an
intellectual one, so that together we bring the
mind-body in alignment towards a holistic approach to
well-being. We will discover creative, fun and poetical
tools for self-expression and well-being.
