Michèle works with people who want to sort out a particular problem, working through difficult feelings as well as with people who are interested in personal and professional development and/or wish to develop more personal awareness.
Michèle believes many people come to therapy because self-protective strategies have become, or can also be, self-destructive strategies. This process provides an opportunity to make sense of your individual circumstances, explore, discover and clarify ways of living with a greater sense of well-being, identify choices for change and have support during the process of change. The end result can leave you better equipped to cope with the future.
Whilst Michèle thinks it is important to challenge self-destructive strategy/behaviour, Michèle can hopefully help to raise awareness of the behaviour or strategy in a way less likely to shame the client. Michèle believes that empathy creates the best context for growth.
Michèle works with individual adults, couples and groups both in English and in French.
