Annelaure is a credentialed art psychotherapist and EMDR therapist, and the clinical director at Colourfully. She is currently working towards her certification as a Somatic Experiencing practitioner.
Annelaure has experience supporting adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, traumatic experiences, childhood abuse, PTSD, addictions (alcohol, drugs, sex/porn, shoplifting) and eating disorders. She may meld art psychotherapy, counselling, somatic experiencing and EMDR therapy in her work, according to the needs and preferences of her clients.
A neurodiversity advocate, Annelaure has a keen interest in supporting ‘zesty minds’: individuals labeled as ADHD, Asperger/ASD, dys-, high IQ or gifted. She presented her therapy and coaching work at the 3rd Asia Pacific Behavioural & Addiction Medicine Conference (2015), and at IMH Asian Congress on ADHD (2016).
Annelaure holds a Master in Art Therapy from Singapore LASALLE College of the Arts & Goldsmiths London, and an Executive Master in Change from INSEAD. She has completed training in EMDR Therapy, Guided Drawing for healing trauma, Cognitive-Behavioural and Psychodynamic Psychotherapies (NUS/IMH), ADHD coaching, and trauma-sensitive yoga. Her continuing professional development is focused on brain-based and body-focused trauma therapies.
Annelaure provides individual or group sessions in English or in French. She has lived and worked in Japan, France, Thailand and Singapore, and facilitated change workshops in companies in ten more countries. Her initial education and career (Engineering, MBA, ten years in marketing and IT roles in multinational companies) enable her to understand the challenges of global executives leading change.
