I believe the quality of the client-therapist relationship is a central healing factor to the success of therapy. I bring warmth, insights and creativity to a safe space where you are free to share all of your hurts, dreams and challenges. I want to work alongside you to bring about a greater awareness of yourself, a clearer understanding of your relationships and a renewed confidence to improve your life. With this in mind, I invite you to get in touch to book a phone conversation with me. This will be an opportunity to ask any questions, to discuss practical matters and it will help you get a sense of whether you would be comfortable working with me.

When words fail you or you feel stuck, I believe that the use of the arts offer the potential to greatly deepen our work together. No prior experience or artistic skills is necessary for this approach and soon you may find it a great source of support in the process of expressing your feelings and of deepening your self-awareness.

The quality of the relationship with a therapist can in itself be a healing factor in facilitating change and growth within our life and with this in mind, I invite you to get in touch to book a phone conversation with me. This will be an opportunity to ask any questions, to discuss practical matters and it will help you get a sense of whether you would be comfortable working with me.

Originally from France, I have made this great city of London my home for the last 25 years. I have been working as a freelance Product designer since 2004.

In 2009 I came across the contagious enthusiasm of Jeremy Gilley, filmmaker and founder of the non-profit organisation Peace One day. This galvanised me to start volunteering in the charity sector and led me to working creatively with young people at CHIVA, the Children HIV Association. This is what inspired me to dive more deeply into the complexity of our human experiences.
