About me and my therapy practice

I have a private practice in Glasgow. My approach is infused with compassion, gentleness and acceptance. I work with my clients to create a collaborative and safe therapeutic relationship. Together we explore and process emotions and experiences that trouble my clients today, so they can be happier. My therapeutic orientation is humanistic and experiential, primarily drawn from Emotion Focused Therapy. I provide psychotherapy to adult individuals.

I grew up in Belgium, where I worked in law and banking. I moved to Scotland as an adult and retrained as a psychotherapist, gaining an MSc in Psychotherapy at Strathclyde University in Glasgow. As a therapist, I do not only use my academic knowledge to help my clients, but I also draw from my own life experience of abuse and post-traumatic growth. 

Practice description

Some think that therapy is only for people who are unwell. I believe that we benefit from therapy in many different circumstances. Psychotherapy helps to reduce the impact of past experiences on us today. It helps us to understand why we are making certain choices or why we struggle with some relationships. Therapy brings us greater self-awareness and helps us to become more true to ourselves. Therapy is a powerful tool to achieve greater personal wellbeing and growth. Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) has been demonstrated to help untangle puzzling, ambiguous and unsettling emotions and to process them so that these are replaced by healthy, manageable emotions. We gradually discern our emotions more clearly and find it easier to trust them.

Visit my website or get in touch today for more information. I offer therapy in English, French and Dutch. 

I have an MSc in Psychotherapy as well as a Certificate in Online and Telephone Counselling. I qualified in Emotion Focused Therapy with Dr Les Greenberg and with Dr Robert Elliott, who are both at the origin of this evidence-based modality of therapy. 

My first session

The first step: get in touch with me via email or via my website (click on the green 'get in touch' button). It is helpful if you can give me a phone number and the best time/day to call you; otherwise I will reply via email.

Then we will talk on the phone, for about 15 minutes. We can discuss about what brings you to therapy and we will see whether I have slots available that would suit you. If we decide we might be a good fit for each other, we will make a provisional appointment for a first session.

Next, I will request your personal details;  I will email you my Therapy Agreement, Privacy Policy and a questionnaire. This gives you information on confidentiality, record keeping, GDPR, how to pay etc... It also gives me a better understanding of your situation.   

You confirm you want to proceed with your first therapy session by returning the completed documents and by paying for the first session. 

At the end of our initial session, if you're happy to continue, we will set up a second session and arrange to see each other weekly or fortnightly.   

Sessions last 50 minutes and cost  £50 - £60. Appointments are available from Monday to Friday, between 11AM and 7PM, usually at the same time every week. I operate a 24/48 hour cancellation policy.
