Born in Cairo, Egypt, I grew up in the French speaking part of Switzerland, until my recent move in 2017 to Spain. Following my BA in Psychology, I went on to obtain a Master of Arts in Counseling. My professional career includes six years coordinating the development and advising on the use of Quality of Life Assessment tools for the promotion of mental health. My work as a consultant for a leading global firm specializing in simulation based assessments confirmed my skills in leading assessments and developing customized coaching programs for mid-level managers and senior executives in Switzerland and across the European Region. This work exposed me to a large array of organizations in fields such as fast moving consumer goods, high tech manufacturing, medical technology, financial services, private foundations and non-governmental organizations. For several years, consulting with relocation companies and local unemployment authorities meant managing large and varied caseloads of people in career transition at different stages in life, with diverse qualifications and seeking solutions that were not readily available to them in the existing job market. Working with such clients required a huge degree of creativity and flexibility in order to ensure they stayed positive and motivated to recreate new objectives and work towards achieving them.

I recently started 21 Next Steps as a response to a growing population finding themselves in transition expectedly or unexpectedly and in need of counseling support. I bring an eclectic style to my sessions drawing on many tools including the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator in helping individuals identify their strengths and preferences. My work with clients is very person-centered, adapting my style to what fits the person and their situation best. I draw on positive intelligence as a basis for helping people grow their core mental muscles in order to enhance their ability to meet daily challenges with a positive mindset.
