We are two different therapists, with different sensitivities, stories, trainings, patients and practices. These differences create our complementarity and our sharing of experiences has allowed us to enrich our therapeutic support and to formalize it for our trainings.

At the request of his colleagues, he set up a hypnosis training school with his wife Anne-Claude, which trains only caregivers: Hypnose et Santé Formation (Hypnosis and Health Training), hosted by the continuing medical training association fmcActioN.
Why does a general practitioner need to integrate a therapeutic tool like hypnosis into his practice?
She participated in research work with the child psychiatry service of Pr S. Tordjman on « the study of the effects of listening times on children’s attention skills » in a rural school. This experience led her to participate in the teaching of the university diploma « from baby to adolescence: normal and pathological development » of University of Rennes 1.
Since 2022, she is in charge of most of the teaching of the University Diploma of Clinical and Therapeutic Hypnosis at the University of Rennes 1.
With Eric, she created the school “Hypnose et Santé Formation”. The complementarity of their views, their experience, their profile and their sensitivity is a real asset for this training.
