Championnat de France

Competitive rider  for 15 years, it's while preparing my first French Championships in dressage, that I discovered the power of a good mental preparation. Tired of loosing all my potential during important events, I decided to work on my mental skills.

I contacted a specialist : Olivier Perrot, psychologist and president of the AFNH (French association of New Hypnosis) and I quickly recovered all my potential and even found new unknown resources.

That is when I became passionate about the power of the mind on one's performance. And this is when I won my first silver medal at the French Championships in amateur dressage (2nd level) in 2004 ! A few years later, in 2007,  I had the privilege to win another medal, this time in bronze, at the French Championships in amateur dressage (2nd level).



In September 2018, I started learning golf. An opportunity for me to practice, live, the mental techniques to optimize your learning curve. With the right mental training, one is able to learn faster and better at any age or physical fitness.


I am also an avid rugby fan and was a coach and teacher from 1995 to 1998.
