I have been trained as a Psychotherapist for the last 15 years and my certification in Maternology enables me to support women and couples in the IVF process.

Perfectly bilingual in English and French, I can assist you as a psychotherapist to help you through those difficult periods of your life, in both professional and personal areas: burn-out, depression, panic attacks, suicidal ideas, divorce. As a Maternologist, I meet women before and after pregnancy that go through depression or anxiety (baby blues).

What are the main reasons to undertake psychotherapy? First of all, it is a personal question where the most important lies in the motivation to be helped when your energy is gone and when you need someone to help you understand the meaning of what is happening. The Gestalt therapy helps me to give a meaning to what is happening to you. It’s a middle term or long term work, according to each person, that is talked at the very beginning of our sessions.

I always propose a protocol of 3 sessions in order that we decide on mutual agreement to go for this project or not.

For a first appointment, without commitment, in Paris and Lille or Brussels if needed, feel free to contact me.


My personal work under Martine Jouffroy’s guidance is one of my life-changing and future-defining experiences. When I first contacted Martine, I was feeling completely lost, confused, exhausted, not aligned with who I truly was and feeling a desolate inner desperation. I was under lots of stress in my corporate job back then, combined with personal challenges with fertility. I was suffering from burn-out, depression and profound anxiety. I was the shadow of myself and I recall the fear that I would never again feel connected, aligned, alive.
Martine Jouffroy knew skillfully how to create a safe space for me to explore all my feelings and thoughts and she encouraged me to go deeper and deeper, at my pace. A big part of the work we did together took place around my acceptance and my navigation through the emotional roller-coaster of the fertility IVF treatments.
Her questions are powerful, her listening skills are profoundly sincere and filled with empathy, her observations are laser-sharp and expressed at the right time.
My work with Martine Jouffroy lasted almost 6 years in total. From a girl feeling lost at 32 years old, I transformed into a woman, became a mother and re-discovered my professional path. Moreover, I learnt how to re-inhabit my body, listen to my body signals and be kinder to myself. Today, I feel a profound sense of gratefulness to have had the opportunity to evolve and grow, as guided by such an outstanding professional and beautiful human being, who is Martine Jouffroy.

Brussels, February 2020

After many years of deceiving experiences with several therapists, I met Martine. I appreciated her strong compassion and professionalism. Thanks to the quality of her presence, I finally went through my therapeutic journey where I needed to grow. I am now feeling grounded in my self-esteem and I have the ability to go through my life’s challenges. I am deeply grateful for that.

Lille, December 2019

I am so happy to announce the birth of our little girl born on January 11 2020. The delivery went very well and happened in water, which was a magical experience. Everything goes well in the house with her big sister who finally is super happy to have a sister and my husband as well. What a bliss! Thank you for everything, Martine! Thank you for the journey that I have made with you along the maternity subject: I can now be calm and serene and enjoy my two daughters with my husband’s support.
