Where she can help…

She specialises in addictive behaviours: eating disorders, alcohol abuse, shopping addictions,….
Her training in psychodynamic psychotherapy, an intensive process of self-realisation, allows individuals to understand the underlying causes of their problems and therefore to develop more adapted coping- mechanisms.

Carine is also trained in ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), one of the third wave  mindfulness-based behaviour therapies. A therapy firmly based in the tradition of empirical science, yet has a major emphasis on values, forgiveness, acceptance, compassion, living in the present moment and accessing a transcendent sense of sense.

Furthermore, Carine is an EMDR practitioner: the Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a leading edge methodology in psychotherapy that has proven to be very effective in the treatment of traumas.

In Addition to her psychodynamic training for couple counselling, Carine also practices the Couple Power Therapy, an exciting new approach that focuses on the positives of the couple while partners cocreate a unified vision for their relationship.
