Before moving to Paris in 1999, I already knew that I wanted to train as a therapist and thought I would return to London to do so.
However, as it quickly became clear I wanted to stay in France, I looked into training options in Psychosynthesis* - the approach which I'd already been interested in before coming to France - and was able to begin my training in a private institute based in Montpellier & then Paris. The course was extremely experiential and I was required to be in therapy myself with a French speaking therapist.
* Psychosynthesis is a holistic (mind-body-emotions) approach which explores and takes into account your past, works with what you're going through in the present and, importantly, has a hope for the future, encouraging exploration of your creativity and potential.
