COACHING / MANAGEMENT CONSULTING / COMMUNICATION WITHIN MARITAL / COUPLE & FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS
In our imagination, nourished by our education and our conditioning, we all believed one day that once married, having founded our family, we will realize our dream. Before taking the leap, we all idealize this life, and the stronger our hope, the stronger the awakening to the reality of life would probably be. Indeed, family life is another experience, a challenge and a process during which we learn a lot about ourselves, about the other and about the relationship. By choosing the right mediator, family and married life can therefore be a great opportunity to grow (sometimes in pain, in joy). Among the possible accompaniments, some examples: - The basics of a solid and fulfilled married or family life - How to resolve disagreements - The secrets of a balanced and balancing child education - Learn to express emotions - Manage families and in-laws - How to take your place within the couple - Define the respective roles of each Among the techniques used: - Non-violent communication tools - The "helping relationship" which aims to support people in a crisis or conflict situation and help them resolve dysfunctions (emotional and relational difficulties, repetition of scenarios, lack of self-confidence, etc.). It also leads to better self-knowledge and guides the person to discover their own solutions. The practitioner in helping relationship through his attentive and neutral listening, his training, his personality, his presence, his availability will allow the consultant to progress towards a better knowledge of his psychological mechanisms, respecting his blockages, his rhythm and his ability to hear. The therapist takes into account the subject as a whole: physical, psychological and social. Allow the consultant to access autonomy so that he can, when he feels ready, walk alone, in all inner serenity. - Coaching that allows you to act and take responsibility, which is the basis of effective and lasting change.

Through coaching, the consultant becomes aware of his resources, optimizes his potential and transforms his life. - Brief marital and family therapy. She is interested in how the problems manifest themselves in the present but the personal history of each is also approached. This insight helps to better understand the events experienced and to make connections between the past and what is at stake in the current difficulties. We introduce changes in behavior to open up perspectives, mainly relational. - Sophrology. Sophrology is a gentle method that promotes relaxation of the body and mind where you relearn how to listen to your feelings using controlled breathing exercises, muscle relaxation and mental suggestions.

OVERCOMING BLOCKAGES, CHANGE MANAGEMENT, PRAGMATIC/BEHAVIORAL PSYCHOLOGY & PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT (BY A PSYCHOPRACTITIONER)
➤Aim of these sessions? Halfway between psychoanalysis on the one hand and American-style coaching on the other, with proposals that will be made to you according to your problem and that will have to be implemented, it will be advisable to proceed as follows: understand the mechanisms of thought & induced emotion, linked to given everyday situations and which involve blockages then act concretely through pragmatic techniques adapted to your problem, and which will be quickly proposed to you to regain power over your life thanks to the methodologies & practices of behavioral coaching. ➤This is why, choosing the appropriate mediator to carry out a quality work and help oneself to advance / overcome certain mechanisms will induce the awareness necessary for this decided change. This will then allow to register in a new dynamic in the personal & professional fields. ➤To lead this change, achieve its aspirations, improve its quality of life and develop the functioning of its cognitive, emotional or behavioral sphere, a cohort of very concrete tools and concepts are at our disposal, and which involve deepening the self-exploration. This involves questioning yourself, analyzing, taking a distance, and understanding the issues / points causing suffering, before finally freeing yourself from it. ➤Examples of topics / issues regularly addressed and which are regularly supported by a dedicated specialist coach, adapted to your plan: • Self-confidence, self-esteem and assertiveness, shyness, decision-making, assertiveness, personal development • Reduce suffering (phobia, stress, anguish, anxiety, negative thoughts, panic, depression) and modify behaviors that are detrimental to well-being (post-traumatic stress, injuries, addictions), to better manage emotions & regain life. appeasement • Concentration, procrastination, organization, professional efficiency, time management •Professional/personal relationships (family, romantic, friendly, affective, etc.) & social: from communication difficulties generating pain & frustration to the fluidity of relationships • Professional life: tensions, pressures & conflicts, (Re) professional orientation (CV, cover letter, job interview), competitions and exams, support in a business project, teamwork ➤Each point is the subject of techniques adapted to your situation, which you will probably never have put into practice… and which have been proven on the people supported. ➤Thus, although involving self-exploration, coaching remains concrete in its application and bears fruit from the first sessions, since it makes people autonomous, and not dependent. ➤You will understand, specializing in life support and personal & professional projects, it is our proven skills and the positive feedback from all the people previously supported that makes us able to support you, by catalyzing the keys to your success, through a methodology and pragmatic tools, adapted to your situation. ➤And if cookie-cutter advice is not offered, that you will never be led but guided without judgment, in a process of permanent / interactive co-construction ... it is because we believe that it It is first important to analyze together, to become aware, to study jointly, to deepen, to decode your blockages and your initial problem in order to clarify your aspirations. ➤Influenced by cognitive & behavioral therapies, by Anglo-Saxon coaching instruments and the European methodology of applied psychotherapy, the approach therefore aims to seek links between current difficulties and past experiences, including repressed and unresolved conflicts and to confront difficulties which may be partially linked to inappropriate thoughts or behaviors learned / adopted often in spite of oneself. ➤ So, how does a session take place? After having identified together a problem, blockages and objectives, it is a question of analyzing them together then proposing a series of suggestions/reflections/pragmatic actions. Concretely, a session = a reflection + solutions. From the second session, 98% of our coaches say they felt a clear difference that influenced their daily life* (2021 study). ➤ THERAPIST - COACH - PSYCHOPRACTITIONER - PSYCHOANALYST - CONSULTANT Trained in a Grande Ecole post-preparatory European classes & Ivy League university in the United States, our teacher has specialized and has been working for more than 16 years, in Europe & North America, in the field, in reputable international public & private establishments, intervening in forums and conferences. ➤ PLACE, TIME, • Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Friborg-Zurich-Neuchâtel-Lugano-Montreux-Bâle-Neuchâtel-Bern-Lucerne-Brussels-Luxembourg-Paris-Lyon.
