From Clinical Psychology to Psychomotricty
Always interested by human sciences and the mind understanding, I’ve started my academic career studying Psychology and graduated in 2012 a Bachelor degree in Clinical Psychology and Psychopathology.
In order to deepen my knowledge thought a embodied and corporal approach, I then enrolled in a three year course in Psychomotricity and graduated in 2015 a French state Psychomotor therapist degree.
From Mind Cares to Mobility Cares
All along my academic career I thus specialized in the Psychology and Psychiatric field and developed a specific gaze in the understanding of human mental health.
I then worked in a Parisian Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation clinic between 2016 and 2018 within post-operative orthopaedic surgery patients. This position allowed me to strengthen my expertise and skills supporting patients in their physical and psychological well-being : assessing patients’ capacity, delivering assistance, education and rehabilitation program to aid mobility improvement and performance in activities of daily living, promote self-empowerment, confidence and global recovery. Whilst working within an extended multi-disciplinary team (such as qualified Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Psychologists, Doctors and Nurses) I worked independently by providing individual sessions, undertaking group activities and patient support group.
Since August 2018 I am now working in London with children, teenagers and adults in the British and the French community. I also work at the same time as a Therapy Assistant at the University College London Hospital which is a wonderful combination to better understand the NHS system and offer a perfectly oriented therapy.
