Training and experience :
I have a university diploma in Couple Counselling (HES) certified and validated by Couple + / FRTSCC (Fédération Romande et Tessinoise des Service de Consultation Conjugale). I’m trained in the psychological approach to couple therapy.
As a couple counsellor, I work primarily with psychodynamic and systemic approaches.
I am a member of the ACC (Association of Couple Counsellors) and I fulfill the requirements for having a private practice (continuing education, supervision, code of ethics).
My work is regularly supervised and I’m involved in ongoing professional training in order to guarantee that my practice remains up to date.
Having obtained a degree in Humanities and Social Sciences (Faculty of Theology, Lausanne ), I spent several years working in pastoral care before training in person-centered therapy (Carl Rogers’ approach), in marriage counselling and couple therapy. I’m currently training in the psychoanalytical approach to the family and sexology.
I continue to attend ongoing education, specifically for relationships between couples, families and especially on sexuality issues, parenthood guidance, separation and co-parenting.
