Claude teacher 1.jpg


My name is Claude and I am a Life Coach, Holistic Counselor and Teacher, and my work is to help my clients blossom into their authentic Self through Psychosynthesis.

Working with people from various cultures, and speaking different languages, lead me to focus my work on communication, relationships, life transitions and, especially, on the integration of the authentic Self.


Prior to coaching and teaching I had an international career in graphic design spreading over two continents. It gave me a deep and personal understanding of the difficulties to communicate and interact within different languages, cultures, personal and work environments, and the internal and external conflicts and dilemmas it creates.

When I first encountered Psychosynthesis, in the mid-90s, it was a game changer in my professional and personal life. It allowed my creative expression to expand through the visual art, poetry, and various styles of dance and expressive movement. Those personal explorations in addition to my studies in meditation, clinical imagery, the tarot, yoga, holistic health, shamanism, tantra and reiki have become an integral part of my work.


Originally from the French part of Switzerland I lived in Berlin, Germany; New York; Colorado and New Mexico. While I live in Oakland, CA since 2013, I also work internationally, in English, French or a mix of both with, at times, the addition of German as well.

I consider the world to be my external home while my true home is within myself. In my free time I continue to explore and expand my life through art, dance, writing, yoga as well as by spending time in nature, cooking, and nurturing the people in my life. As for my own inner blossoming, I keep my curiosity open by traveling the small and big roads of this amazing world.
