My mantra: “Happiness is not a matter of intensity but a balance, order, rhythm and harmony”. T. Merton

In 2014 I established SantePlus Coaching and Yoga with the vision and passion to inspire people to believe in themselves, to develop resilience and to move forward with confidence for a happier life.

My mission: “To inspire, support and challenge individuals to
re-define, re-establish and maintain their ultimate life balance and
be happy”.

Originally from France, I followed my Australian husband to Western Australia in the late 1980's and then to South East Asia for more than 10 years.

My personal life experiences in migrating to Australia and living in Asian countries, while trying to establish myself professionally and becoming a mother were challenging at times.

As a French Infirmiere (Registered Nurse) with a passion to help others towards re-establishing better health, I also wanted to understand the impact of society on people’s life and well-being. This curiosity drove my studies and research in health, sociology, anthropology and communication.

After working for 25 years in various health settings and teaching across four WA universities, I decided to break free. Now operating independently as a Life Coach and Yoga instructor I embrace all my skills and follow my passion to assist individuals re-establish their ultimate life balance and well-being.
