Individual, Couples, and Family Counselling Services in English
Originally from the United Kingdom, bilingual in French and English, I
have over 35 years of expatriate experience in France, Germany and the
Middle East. As a result, I have a sound understanding of the challenges
related to living and working abroad. I combine this with my
professional qualifications in Psychology and Systemic and Integrative
therapy, to offer reliable advice, guidance and support, to you, the
English speaking international community. We can meet in Bordeaux,
Langon and Bergerac, or if you prefer, by Skype.

maximise your mental, physical an emotional well-being and greater life
satisfaction. By working together, we will focus on the elements that
are limiting your psychological freedom and identify specific triggers
that may be causing disruptive patterns of behaviour.
or Couples and Family Counselling
Couples and Family therapy supports the notion that family relationships
form a key part of the emotional health of each member within that
problems that I have experience in, include stressful and traumatic life
events such as: divorce and separation, illness or death of a loved one,
and transitional stages of family development that can cause pain and
upset. Work and school-related problems, and parent-child conflict can
also be explored through family therapy.
Essentially, by evaluating these issues and providing support, I can
help couples and families to:
better understand how their family functions

develop their communication skills
