My Story

Trained at the Cambridge Body Psychotherapy Centre since 2017, I am a Body Psychotherapist trainee working towards my UKCP accreditation (UK Council for Psychotherapy). I am also a Biodynamic Massage therapist and member of the Association of Biodynamic Massage Therapists. I also offer Affective Touch. Finally, I hold Counselling certificates (Levels 2 and 3) accredited by the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) since 2015.

Before I embarked on psychotherapy training, I had different careers and travelled across many countries. As a French national, I first worked in the aid development sector in Africa as a researcher and project manager. Then I settled in the UK and became a secondary school teacher for a few years.

These various experiences helped me to consider what identity, home and relationships can mean for each of us and what can be in the way of connecting with our true self. With demands of modern life and a rapidly changing world, remaining close to who we really are is increasingly challenging, nevertheless I believe possible.

My Values

My work is based on humanistic and psycho-spiritual principles which means that I believe that each individual is unique and that Body Psychotherapy has the capacity to help the individual to reconnect with their inner resources to resolve their difficulties. This is an explorative process in which I collaborate and commit fully with you.
