“The purpose of the Compassionate Inquiry system is to drill down to the core stories people tell themselves – to get them to see what story they are telling themselves unconsciously; what those beliefs are, where they came from; and guide them to the possibility of letting go of those stories, or letting go of the hold those stories have on them …
That’s what the Compassionate Inquiry system is.”
~ Dr. Gabor Maté
It was hard for me to admit that I would benefit from a form of therapy, and I was in quite a low place when I met Cécile. It’s coming up to a year now that we started our journey together, and I'm so thankful we did.
I almost always start our sessions thinking I have nothing of particular value to share, only to find an hour has passed and Cécile has managed to pick up strands here and there, encouraging me to delve further and reflect deeper. I find Cécile to be a warm, open, humorous, empathetic person to speak with. She takes utmost care to provide a safe, secure space in which this can occur. Cécile has a great network of knowledge & resources to draw upon. She is supportive and encouraging and has empowered me in numerous ways. I feel I've benefited from our time together by becoming more open, secure, positive and grounded. Our talks have been enormously insightful and comforting and I remain grateful for the wonderful energy Cécile shares

Cecile has an amazingly comforting presence that enabled me to be completely at ease and hence able to open up from the very first session. I felt very seen, heard and met by her during my compassionate inquiry sessions. As well as completely held in the space that she created. In every session there was something to marvel at as a result of this which allowed me to heal aspects of myself I only had a vague awareness of. To me the whole process with Cecile felt incredibly supportive and nurturing and I highly recommend her and her methods /

I was extremely lucky to work with Cécile to tap into the mix of my emotions that were constantly surfacing as triggers.
Even though I’ve never met her before, I felt very comfortable opening up to her from the get go. She is a great listener and made me realize a lot of things that I thought were realities, were my own projections all the way.
I still have a bit of a way to go but I feel a bit more equipped to stop, breathe and reassess.
I cannot thank Cécile enough for her humbling generosity and warm heart.
Many Thanks for your time /Racha Sparrow, April 2022
