Votre enseignante

Dr. Gaudet’s approach is soothing and warm.  She knows how to establish a climate of trust and mutual respect in the group. She shares wisdom acquired through her experience and encourages us to create daily moments to take care of ourselves, explore our feelings, and offer ourselves compassion.  We offer compassion easily to others, but it is difficult to offer it to ourselves because of lack of time, of guilt or of fear of no longer trying to improve. Dr. Gaudet's training is one of the nicest gifts you can give yourself.
