Gaëlle Chatenet, Sophrology and NLP Therapist and Well-Being Life Coach in Tokyo
Nice to Meet you
Hello, My name is Gaelle. Born in France, from the US, the UK, China and now Japan for the last 20 years, I have spent most of my life abroad. Adapting and living in a culture different from my own, marrying someone from a different country than me and raising our own biracial family, many challenges have come up.
Just before the birth of my first child, in 2010, I had a car accident. I then gave birth having sustained several injuries, far from my family and friends, in a foreign country. Not surprisingly, I ended up with Post-Partum Depression. A few months later, I had my first encounter with Sophrology during a stay in France and it changed my life. It has been my go-to method ever since to stay grounded, aware of my own needs and that of the people around me, learning how to face daily challenges in a positive and healthy way.
When my son encountered difficulties at school, I once again turned to Sophrology to help him and that is when I decided to take a course and become a Sophrologist myself so I could better support him. While talking to friends and acquaintances, I realized that I could help others in my community as well. Sophrology is a method that can be used in coaching. To be able to bring the best of my experience to others around me, I went into Coaching Training and that is how I found out about Neuro Linguistic Programming. NLP is an excellent complement to Sophrology and makes coaching even more effective. Are you curious yet?
