Consultations

Children - Teenagers - Adults - Couples 

 

Be sure of my care of confidentiality and discretion. Don’t hesitate to contact me with all confidence.

 

Children consultations.

The child does not have all the adult codes to express his emotions and feelings, he does not use necessarily the words, but he expresses himself with different forms like unexplained anger, sudden hyperactivity, recurrent stomach aches, sleeping disorders, lower marks at school… Very often these symptoms may reveal the difficulties lived by a child in communication, relations or schooling.
My sessions with children, especially the little ones, are in the form of role playing, drawing, modeling, scenarios which allows them to verbalize and to express their emotions and so to get free from the situations of discomfort (with brothers and sisters, parents, family, classmates…). My listening and my experience of infantile therapies will help your child to feel confident and to entrust freely (in complete serenity).

 

 

Teenagers’ consultations.

Adolescence is a transition period. Young people are subjected to particularly destabilizing capital changes, such as hormonal and physiological changes or psychological changes. It is a period of crisis when fragilities and vulnerabilities take different forms: violence, aggression, withdrawal…
As a teenager therapist I will help your child to regain an emotional balance and a self-confidence. My experience and my kind listening will give the teenager the opportunity to face his behavioral problems, feeding and addictive disorders. I will bring him the necessary resources to put away his aggressiveness and his latent or actual violence.
I will also help your child to find more adequate explications to the often excessive behavior which corresponds to this crucial period of adolescence.
Together we will try to better understand these behaviors, the violence factors (suffered or acted), their causes (real or fantasized) and especially their consequences in order to mitigate the risk of acting out. If necessary the question of identity will be worked out and also family, love or sexual problems. The individual work will help the teenager to canalize his aggressiveness and to use words, the positive alternative to violence.

 

 

Adult consultations.

Adulthood has the other problems. They may concern emotional, relational, social or professional life.  The world of work emerges new sufferings like harassment or even burn out.
To face sleep disorders, persistent ill-being, stress, unexplained generalized tiredness, painful life events such as dismissal, divorce, illness, bereavement it is beneficial to demand some help to a professional. As a therapist I accompany you and offer you the most suitable therapy according to the challenges you face. I will help you to assert yourself in everyday life, to face critics, to respond them. I will guide you to face the anxiety generated through public speaking or any other social anxiety. I will request you to find your own way to defuse conflicting business and personal situations.
In the context of occupational retraining I can help you to appropriate the necessary tools to change your life; to understand and to identify the mechanisms underlying new choices. I can help you to understand any situation of existential crisis, trauma, unemployment, financial problems, over-indebtedness problems, addiction problems such as money games. I will allow you to identify and to understand the connection of causes and effects after repeated failures in your personal or professional life that are often connected to a specific issue. I will regularly follow you through depression, chronic illness, addiction to alcohol, tobacco to help you to get rid of them.

 

 

Couples consultations.

Following couple therapy is one of the solutions that allow a couple to avoid the going down and to find the necessary resources to restart on a new and solid foundation. Divorce or separation is then avoided by the way of meditation which helps everyone to verbalize his feelings, anger, frustrations, expectations and desires, to resolve conflicts. The therapy consists in opening of a space where the both partners may put down words that they never knew or could say, recognize and express their feelings and listen each other. Marital crises, disorders and sexual problems, I am here to help you so that each partner finds his right distance in the relationship. I will be present to help each other to identify his own tolerance zones, to learn to position oneself in the relationship, to be able to say no, to become aware of inherent interferences in any communication and to understand better what happens in the relationship. You will be even capable to redefine the roles and the positions of each other in the couple and in the family. In case of unavoidable separation the divorce is sometimes beneficial; I will give you the necessary elements to be able to project yourself into the future.
