About me

I am gestalt psychotherapist…

Make sense of what happens to you.

To help you through times of crises, doubts and questions, my gestalt training offers insight into your situation, and gives meaning to it.

In a kind of “dance between 2 partners”, the pace of the sessions follows yours. Each week we will work together to decipher the impasse, which sometimes you are not aware of, that make your life difficult.

The purpose of my practice is to help you grow, to help you release what is not, or not any more yours, and to feel all the emotions that life presents you with in your professional life, in your couple, your relationships with others or your life as a parent.
My humanist education that I received in North America is also supplemented by a master’s degree in communication I got from the Sorbonne in the 80’s.

Psychotherapy in Paris

For several years I already practice Gestalt psychotherapy in my offices in Paris. In 2011 I also completed a certification in maternologie. This enables me to accompany pregnant women in their psychological suffering.

I am married and have three children. Graduated in 2000 from the gestalt intervention center of Montreal, I practice my professionin full respect for others.

No need to hesitate, just take the fist step and get in touch !

Do you have other questions or concerns (including if we can help you with your problem)? Just call us to make an appointment or send an email to Psychologist France, to the attention of Martine Valton Jouffroy.

What is a psychologist?

Patients often wonder what the difference is between a psychologist, a psychotherapist and a psychiatrist.

A psychologist has a university degree and has followed a minimum of 3 years’ study (‘Masters’ degree, previously a Bachelors degree). They are not a doctor and so consequently do not prescribe medication. The title of psychologist is recognised by the Belgian State and is protected by law. To work as a ‘psychologist’, the professional must be recognised by the Commission of Psychologists, who will assign them a membership number, guaranteeing the validity of their title.
