Scientific Researcher

My approach is to accompany people in regaining their physical and mental health, either with the help of the Gestalt therapy and/or naturopathy.


The immune system comprises a series of defence mechanisms that our body uses to defend itself against the attack of foreign bodies. It stands guard against disease around the clock: It fights bacteria, keeps viruses under control, kills parasites and tumour cells.

Gestalt therapy

Gestalt therapy is an integrative approach, which means that it has brought together different schools of thought and therapeutic methods, including Gestalt psychology, psychoanalytic research, phenomenology and existential philosophy.


The sessions in naturopathy or Gestalt therapy last between 1 and 1.5 hours. In naturopathy the first session is the longest and the follow-up sessions last 1 hour.

Who am I?


I am French with Lebanese roots, I was born in Abu Dhabi, where I spent my childhood, and I returned to my home country, Lebanon, at the age of 12 with my parents. I lived there for 8 years and graduated from St. Joseph University in Beirut. Bachelor's degree in Life and Earth Sciences. At the age of 19, I decided to move to France to study at the Pierre et Marie Curie University (Paris VI). Master in Integrative Biology and Physiology with a focus on Nutrition to graduate. Then I continued my studies with a Doctorate in human genetics and molecular biology at the University René Descartes (Paris V). I was looking for happiness and wanted to get to know another country. Therefore, at the age of 29, I went to Germany to work.

"I am free to change how I respond to the world. So if I change the way I see the world, I also change my genetic expression. We are not victims of our genes, we are masters of our genes''.

My approach to self-discovery

My approach is to accompany people in regaining their physical and mental health, either with the help of the Gestalt therapy and/or naturopathy.

In order to accompany others, one must first accompany oneself and be sufficiently connected to oneself.

My personal development has enabled me to connect more deeply with myself and to better understand from the inside how we are built and how we can change ourselves internally.

Getting to know each other and comprehensive health check, duration 1.5 - 2 hours. Second session: review of needs and adjustments after one month, shorter duration. Follow-up sessions: 15 minutes to one hour, as needed by phone, video conference or in the office.
