My career path

I worked for almost 25 years in several senior executive positions in international and state-owned groups – Barclays Bank, Reuters Europe, United European Bank, BNP Paribas, State of Vaud – and co-founded, among others, an IT services start-up.

Then I experienced cancer, an encounter that gave me the chance to completely rethink my approach to work, my private relationships and caused a fundamental reconsideration of my personal values. I went travelling around the world for more than 2 years.

I then went into independent entrepreneurship and trained in ceramics in France, Africa and the U.S.A. I then moved to Brittany where I opened an art gallery. I am also active in the tourist development of the Finistere french department, where I also created my own tourist infrastructure.

In 2015 I return to Switzerland, start studying law and cybercrime, work as a consultant for law firms.

In 2018 I complete my training as a professional coach, a profession I have been practicing ever since.

9 lives . . .

It is said that cats have 9 lives. I have not reached this number yet – and I am not a cat – but I have had the chance to change jobs, or even lives, several times. And, even more frequently, to find solutions to improve existing situations. Most often by choice, sometimes compelled, but always by making the most of these opportunities.

Keeping self-confidence, finding it, or rather regaining it, is an essential prerequisite for facing challenges that come our way.

To rediscover this power we know is within us, to explore new paths, to be innovative in our own way, to know how to integrate our values to ensure we make the right decisions, to dare to act, these are the challenges I invite you to meet.

Each change, each disruption, each transition is a unique opportunity to acquire new skills, to experiment, to move beyond routines, to explore new horizons and to discover ourselves.

My clients

Often passionately committed to their job, or the one they would like to exercise, motivated and efficient, with a deep desire to be useful. Having survived a serious illness, often cancer, they are led to review their value system and feel the necessity to confront them with practice. Sometimes more simply, they are looking for keys to reintegrate into active life.

I support my clients in the search for solutions in accordance with their values. I help them to find the professional environment that matches their priorities, with calm and serenity, by reducing stress, by permitting a better understanding of the circumstances, of themselves, of their entourage and by clearly improving communication in the business and family environment.

My support

Focused on coaching executives facing major professional changes – returning to work after cancer, change of company, team, hierarchy, position,  or in a life or career transition – I am happy to also coach people with other types of work issues, with a similar profile: a will to take the necessary actions to find solutions and a willingness to devote the necessary energy.

Thanks to my experiences on a deliberately atypical path, and my coach certification, I offer you the opportunity to apprehend your topics under a new perspective, another insight, so you can give yourself the freedom to initiate a paradigm shift, in accordance with your true values.
