Who am I?

I am a leadership development consultant and executive coach, with a business background.

I have been a management consultant for 15 years, and started my own practice in 2018.

Before that, I was working at one of the top executive search firms in the world, Korn Ferry – serving a wide variety of corporate clients and supporting a significant number of people through transitions.

Born in France, with an international culture and mindset.

  • I have lived in the US for 5 years

  • Traveled the world for 2 years, spent quite some time in China

Always an eye open on the world, feeling that I am a global citizen.​

I coach in English and in French.

Currently based in Paris, but actual, physical location isn’t so important these days, now that we have all moved online. 

When meeting in person is not an option, I work via video conferencing with my clients, wherever in the world they might be.

What do I do?

I develop people.

I create a safe space where my clients can be themselves, reflect, play, experiment and in their own time come to major insights.

I am a believer in the power of self-awareness, and its catalytic role towards helping people effect true change.

Unlock their potential.

Become themselves. Aligned. And thrive.

Some areas of intervention:

  • leadership development

  • career and life transitions

  • onboarding

  • assessments

  • high potential

I work with a network of trusted, international colleagues as projects require.

    Coaching style

    My approach can be described as psychodynamic coaching, with a relational orientation.

    In a nutshell, I will support you with warmth and empathy, but also challenge you and hopefully we will explore uncharted territories together!

    Coaching is a co-creation, it is by both showing up fully in the conversation that magic happens.

    My pet topic

    Epiphanies! or moments of deep insight.

    I wrote my INSEAD Master Thesis on them, and am still fascinated by the intensity and the power of these moments.

    When they happen in the coaching room, everyone is humbled. 

    Then real work can begin.
