Your pain is real and you can lower it!
LEARN HOW TO LOWER PAIN VOLUME AND REGAIN ENERGY!
Welcome and congratulations for making the courageous decision to take your health back onto your own hands!
I accompany adults suffering from chronic illness and chronic pain who just got diagnosed and need guidance to avoid missteps so that they find the medical support they need, learn to manage the social aspect of it, reduce pain intensity and frequency in order to find new energy, direction, and joy again. I help you discover tools to palliate to side effects of ongoing treatments, and manage the anxiety that the prospect of a lifelong diagnosis may create.
There is so much that can be done, outside of medical treatment, to reduce chronic pain and inflammation and increase energy! I wish to be able to share with you the knowledge and education I accumulated for 20 years, as a patient and in my trainings. My coaching is holistic and integrative, meaning it takes into account every aspect of a person (Body, mind, soul) and integrates with other therapeutic modalities (it does not replace medical treatment nor prescribes medicine). It includes knowledge from mindfulness and meditation, psychosomatics, the gut-brain-axis, intuitive eating, and CBT therapies, to only cite a few…
From alone to supported
Your medical journey has been discouraging, exhausting, and downright depressing at times. You feel like doctors do not listen, do not believe you, and even worse, dismiss your symptoms and belittle you. Medical burnout is real!
I have been in your shoes and understand how hard this is. I am here to guide and support you actively and compassionately through up’s and downs, and trials and errors.
This is for you if you want:
health professionals who listen to you

CONTROL AND ACCOUNTABILITY
You know what you should be doing to feel better but lack of time, energy and support has left you stranded. You need a partner and accountability.
VALIDATION, SUPPORT & COMPASSION
No-one seems to get it. Your family and friends do not believe you nor understand what you are going through. At best, they do not know how to support you efficiently. I will help you manage the day-to-day of living with pain and help you build you a team of professionals that have your back and understand your daily struggle.
From anxious to peaceful

J’ai retrouvé mon énergie d’avant, je dors beaucoup mieux et je n’ai presque plus d’insomnies.
« Mon principal objectif était de retrouver le sommeil, retrouver mon énergie, retrouver des moments de qualité avec les enfants, un bon équilibre de vie, me sentir épanouie. Cet objectif me semble atteint et je suis donc ravie de cette première expérience de coaching.
(…) “le coaching a été bien au-delà de mes attentes, il m’a permis d’aller vraiment vers du mieux, de retrouver de l’énergie, de reprendre ma vie en mains.
Le coaching m’a permis de manger à nouveau correctement, de me donner du coup plus d’énergie, de recommencer le sport … donc tout bénéfice pour ma santé.”
Laetitia really helped me when I was new to Germany and highly overwhelmed. We tackled my anxiety together and I will always be grateful. ♡
