I was born and raised in Geneva and also lived in Japan and Canada for a whil. Meeting people from different cultures has enriched my life and it is something that I feel very passionate about. In 2016 my husband and I welcomed our son into the world and thus decided to return to Geneva in order to provide him with a multinational experience and education; he is a citizen of the world, being born with 3 nationalities – Mexican, Canadian and Swiss.

My interest has always been self-development and growth. I first studied and worked as a social worker and later as an emotional and body awareness therapist, using the Grinberg method. I soon realised that this methodology could be limiting and so I decided to explore different approaches connected to self-development. During 8 years of therapy work, I created my own approach and included different tools namely; mindfulness, foot reflexology, holistic touch, visualisation, rituals, emotional and energy regulation, to become a holistic therapist I am today. 

After the birth of my son, becoming a doula was the natural evolution of my vocation and own personal growth. I am currently developing numerous workshops that allow me to offer both my therapeutic and doula skills in order to provide support within a group as well as one on one session. I define myself as grounded and optimistic and I aim to bring these qualities into the work that I do. I look forward to supporting you using my knowledge, skills and learnings from our co-creational space.

Lauren, Matt and baby Francis, on having me as a birth doula

«Thank you so much for your support and guidance during my pregnancy and birth. Becoming pregnant for the first time far from home and family was a bit intimidating and having your support was so important to helping us feel comfortable. The labor and birth support was even more than I could have imagined. Thank you ! »


Elodie, about my workshops and treatments 

« I fully recommend Aurélie for her care, on a physical as well as on an emotional level. She is a sensitive person and good listener, who is able to guide you skillfully and adapt to your personal needs. Thank you Aurélie! »


Renata, on having me as a birth doula

«In the middle of this pandemic when the resources are more distant, Aurelie saved my life. She has such a calm and confident personality. It’s very natural to feel comfortable and trust her work. She is always available for you and your doubts and each meeting is a pleasant world of new informations, techniques and knowledge. With such an emphatic way of being, nothing never feels overwhelming.
I am very lucky and grateful for having her beside me on my first pregnancy. Thanks you Aurélie, I free myself from a lot of unnecessary fears »

How does it work?

Deciding to put one’s trust in a doula or therapist is an important choice. It is for this reason that I offer a free phone or video call so that we can get a sense of one another and decide if we are a good match.
