Choosing the right treatment can be a challenge and finding a therapist with whom you can form a good working relationship is the first, important step.

Please note that because of social distancing, in place in France to combat the Covid-19 virus, all sessions will be done online until restrictions are lifted. Please email me to find out how the sessions work. I use a safe encrypted platform that is easy to use.

 

If you are considering therapy but you are not yet certain, I offer a free 20 minute enquiry call (via telephone) so that we can briefly discuss your presenting concerns and I can answer any questions you may have concerning my approach to therapy.

 

Once we start working together, our initial consultations will be devoted to exploring your current concerns in depth, as well as an enquiry into your background.

 

After these initial assessment sessions, I will make a proposal as to how we might continue our work together and establish which type of therapy I think would be best suited to your needs.

 

We will also discuss the frequency of our sessions, payment and fees, cancellation policy and breaks in therapy before we get started.

WHAT TO EXPECT

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

I see adults and adolescents for individual therapy. Sessions last 50 minutes and are ideally on a weekly basis. I do also offer online therapy (via encrypted video call) for clients outside of the Paris Metropole.

 

Some of the areas that I have experience with include:​​

  • Loss & Bereavement

  • Adjustment Difficulties

  • Personal Growth

  • Stress & Burnout

  • Executive Counselling & Workplace Therapy

  • Expatriate/Immigration Adjustment

  • Anxiety

  • Depression (including post-partum)

  • Suicidal Feelings

  • Anger Management

  • Low Self-Esteem 

  • Personality Problems

  • Phobias & Social Anxiety

  • Trauma

  • Gender Identity, LGBTIQ+ support

  • Illness & Disability (Diabetes, HIV/AIDS, Cancer, Chronic Pain)

  • Emotional/Physical/Sexual Abuse

  • Addiction (Including Gaming, Substances, Gambling, Porn) 

  • Eating Disorders

  • Body Image Disturbances

  • Supportive/Psychosocial rehabilitation for serious mental illness.

COUPLE THERAPY

Couple therapy can be intimidating and many couples wait until they are in trouble before seeking help. A relationship is a complex interrelational system that is often difficult to make sense of, but examining this system and learning skills to help it work better can be beneficial to many relational problems, including:

 

  • Improving Communication Skills

  • Conflict Resolution

  • Problems related to Sex & Intimacy 

  • Separation & Divorce 

  • Infidelity

  • Financial Problems

  • Parenting consultations

  • Pre-marital counselling
