I am originally from France where I lived for about 25 years. I’ve always been a free spirit enjoying nature and very intuitive. My interests brought me naturally toward horticulture and a bachelor of clinical psychology studies.
I travelled and worked in different countries for around 10 years before arriving in NZ in 2011 where I met my husband. We settled down in Alexandra, in the South Island. For the first time in my life I felt like I was finally home. This new feeling allowed me to start a long process of working on my wounded past and letting go of all my belief systems that were holding me back. During this time of inner transformation, I was lucky to work on an orchard where I met wonderful people who trusted in my abilities and allowed me to grow toward my goal.
2017 was the big turning point in my career. After a challenging health diagnosis, my priority in life shifted. It was my wake up call and within the 2 months of my diagnosis, I went to Australia to learn Raynor massage therapy. A month after my graduation, I opened my business while I was still working full time.
Through my own journey, while I was practicing Raynor massage, I could see that beyond the physical pain trapped emotions were often hidden. I wanted to go further to explore the mind, understand our purpose in life, why we are sick and why we repeat certain negative patterns. Therefore, I decided to develop my career by learning hypnosis and I chose to study with 3 different schools (BQH, Introspective Hypnosis and the basis of Ericksonian Hypnosis).
The pandemic of 2020 accelerated my career and since May of 2020, I am now a full time massage therapist and hypnotherapist in Alexandra (and all over the world with online hypnosis sessions).
I believe massage and hypnosis are complementary and address both aspects I find important in life, the connection between Body and Mind.
I also believe that we never stop learning and I am always looking for new books, new courses and new podcasts. Above all, my clients are my greatest teachers and they allow my practice to continuously evolve.
