My name is Lesly Garreau, I'm a 41 French therapist and ex-pat. I'm married to my awesome partner, Yana, and I'm living between Europe and Asia.
Usually, in an about-me section therapists love to show their credentials (which is fine). But as I never finished psychology university, unfortunately, I have nothing to show you here.
I chose another path for myself and worked in IT for years as a freelance consultant. I've used my psychology background in experience design.
That choice was deliberate. I always knew that I would work in the relationship field. But at 20 something I thought that my life experience wasn't enough to be helpful.
Today I use a holistic approach to therapy. I’ve studied at the Gottman Institute and the Center for Non-Violent Communication. I’ve also had systemic psychology training.
The field of human relationships in psychology never stop to evolve. I keep learning to always have the best toolbox to help my clients.
As you can see on my website I work with location independents. It's because it’s also my lifestyle, but that doesn't mean that I can’t work with more rooted clients. So please don’t feel excluded.
Outside of work, I practice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, watercolor painting, and true hiking. We try to do the latest as much as we can with Yana. We both love nature.
Now that you know me a little bit better if you have any questions feel free to use the contact form to send me a message.
