Individual Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
I am a Clinical Psychologist/ Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and a Coach.
I believe that consulting a psychotherapist should be easily accessible and normal activity like going to the gym or see a dentist.
Therapy is for everybody
I am fully trained and experienced professional, and open-minded, dedicated and curious.
I don't follow any dogma and although I care deeply about psychology and psychotherapy, I also recognise the immense contributions of philosophy, culture, art, music, and literature to understanding the human condition.
I appreciate the pain and joy of being alive, and I provide a safe, private space for exploring and making sense of the human experience.
I have create a safe space in the heart of Paris to welcome psychodynamic psychotherapy and coaching services.
I also operate virtually around the world, wherever you may be, offering online psychodynamic psychotherapy.
A one to one individual psychodynamic psychotherapeutic session of an hour duration, offers an objective, non- judgemental time and space, in which you can talk freely and openly about the things which worry you; facilitated, all the while, with valuable insight from a trained professional.
In a safe and supportive space personal concerns, conflicts and problems can be explored in an atmosphere of trust and confidentiality where new solutions to old problems may be found.
Relationship dynamics are more complex than ever before. In our intense times it is more necessary than ever to create novel conversations to address 'traditional' issues with our partners.--
Couple Counselling is a safe space in which both parties are able to address issues that when alone, very easily arrive to misunderstanding and confusion.
Having a job and working in an environment that provides space to express our talents and interests, we believe is one of the most important goals of our lives.--
Therefore, there may be literally nothing more valuable to invest in than some sessions of Career & Executive Counselling.

A panic attack is a dramatic false alarm clanging in body and mind. Recognising this is the first step to dialling it down

Evolution has equipped our bodies with an emergency response when faced with extreme danger: extra blood rushes to our muscles, vision is narrowed, breathing speeds up and digestion shuts down. The body is primed to fight or flee. These changes can be life-saving, but when there’s a false alarm and the fight-or-flight response is triggered unnecessarily or out of proportion to the threat, we can experience a ‘panic attack’. The UK-born author and film-maker Jon Ronson, who has lived with anxiety for decades, likens the experience to hanging on to a cliff by your fingers.
Between 15 to 30 per cent of us will go through this at least once in our lifetimes – and, as you know if you’ve ever had one, such episodes can be terrifying. The intensity of the sensations can lead you to believe you’re dying or going crazy or losing control. The heart pounds and your hands or entire body might tremble. You can experience a dry mouth, sweating, nausea or dizziness. Often, you’re seized by an overwhelming urge to escape.
For some people, the trigger is obvious – the claustrophobic crush of an overcrowded train carriage, or an email bearing bad news. For others, the panic rises as if from nowhere, perhaps precipitated by a shortness of breath, a hot flush or some other bodily sensation.
When the mind catastrophically misinterprets these feelings, it can activate the brain’s survival reflexes. The situation then spirals, so that the uncomfortable physiological sensations fuel yet more alarm and fear. The entire episode can last anywhere from a few minutes to more than an hour (although that’s rare). Usually, the panic reaches its crescendo within 10 minutes before subsiding.
The more intense and unpleasant an initial episode, the greater the risk that you’ll later develop a panic disorder – that is, recurring attacks and a fear of them. So knowing what to do in the event of a panic attack isn’t just useful for preventing distress in the moment, but also for maintaining your wellbeing over the longer term.
