Hi, I'm Isabelle, your professional parenting and leadership coach. CPCC, ACC-ICF certified.
Growing up in France and now living in NewYork, USA, I speak both french and english.
A little more about my background
Ever since I was a child I wanted to take care of children. I have always been driven by the desire to help others to enhance their brilliance. I have always been fascinated by nonverbal communication and being an Early Childhood specialist/educator gave me this beautiful opportunity to evolve around young children from infancy to 7 years-old and guide them in finding the best out of themselves to grow in a holistic and harmonious way.
My approach considers that the emotional, cognitive and cultural development as well as the language and sensory-motor skills are interrelated. The children's development is complex and can never be understood without the family and environmental context. Helping and accompanying families as a whole is the foundation of my services today.
However it wasn't until I became a daycare Director that I truly started to value the importance to take time in supporting parents in their role.
After moving to New York, USA, I decided to push my abilities to listen and coach parents to the next level. I got certified as a co-active coach CPCC, with CTI one the leader in training coaches.
Their Co-Active approach is the philosophy of wholeness that provides a framework for people to experience the infinite possibilities of life. Co-Active grows people as a leader through conversation, actions, and awareness—and gets us outside your comfort zone, exploring our own boundaries and becoming aware of the impact we're having around you.

Today I dedicate my time helping people to fall in love with their lives.
I believe parenting is the most difficult job in the world and I also believe that any parent can be this awesome cool role model, filled with self-confidence.
For more than ten years, witnessing and guiding wonderful children, no matter what their background is, insanely curious, born early, super chatty, night owls, early birdies, with an imaginary friend, taller than the others, smaller, terribly two, coming from another country, on the spectrum of autism, ardent graspers, restless climbers, loving to dress up, with special needs, born at home, with unique sensitivities, full of surprises, passionate singers, marathon crawlers, has been my greatest gift.
French and English speaker clients are welcome.
