Originally from France, I draw from my experiences of having lived and worked in the United Arab Emirates for the past 30 years
I have witnessed many changes in this part of the world and I have deep empathy and understanding for my clients, who come from various backgrounds, who often talk about the challenges they face here, the emotional difficulties that ‘expat’ life can bring, especially when they feel stuck and unable to find personal or professional fulfilment.
My work is helping people live a better life now, with happier, deeper and more genuine relationships.
I have first-hand experience of having felt lonely, sad and disconnected, even though I was married and had children. This experience is invaluable now, as I often work with people who are encountering very similar situations.
My first career was in Teaching as well as Personal and Professional Development and Training and I have been privileged to work with and learn from multi-cultural clients and students of all ages and backgrounds, within well-reputed national and international establishments in the UAE.
From those experiences, I have learnt to be open-minded, intuitive, aware of the energy and dynamic of a group, able to create a safe space for all, non-judgmental, accepting, and a good listener.
No therapist is a perfect fit for everyone, but if you feel inspired and you are not sure of what you need, you can contact me, give me call me on +971 55 732 99 66 or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss your situation.
I look forward to meeting you.
I work with English and French speaking clients face to face in my office in Dubai. Centrally located and with easy parking, it is the ideal place for private and comfortable sessions. I also work on Skype worldwide.
