My Methods

Gestalt Psychotherapy 

Gestalt Psychotherapy Gestalt is a holictic therapy with uses cognitive work, emotions and body expression. Gestalt method brings awareness on our ways to live and interact with others , in order to avoir the repetition of the same scénario.

Humanist Psychotherapy

Humanist Psychotherapy is centered on the person who is viewed and approached with the unique singularity of each individual and inconditionnally welcomed. The absence of judgment support the developement of self-esteem and of self-confidence.

Body Process Methods in Therapy

Body Process Methods use exprience from the body, body perceptions, fundamental archaic body movements and body reappropriation. This approach provides awareness on archaic retrofexion  and allow to actualise them  here and now.

Therapeutical Coaching

Le Coaching Thérapeutique est une approche centrée sur la solution, les outils, les processus qui favorisent la réussite. J'utilise des outils issus de l'Hypnose, la PNL, l'Elément Humain. Ces outils permettent une approche pragmatique et concrète des difficultés vécues.

To Support You

Marie-Odile Pirus

My name is Marie-Odile Pirus. I am 53 years old, I work and live in Milly-la-Forêt (91490), next to Fontainebleau forest. Milly-la-Forêt is one hour drive from Porte d'Orléans (South Paris, exit 13 on A6).

After 20 years mostly working in Human Resource, I chose to place Coaching and Therapy at the heart of my professional activity and to open my consulting practice in Paris (in the 16th district).

I trained in Coaching at the Ecole de Coaching de Paris and I trained in psychotherapy at the Ecole Parisienne de Gestalt (EPG), a school registered at the Paris Rectorate and approved by the European Association for Gestalt Therapy.

To complete this, I also completed a certification in the "Six Fundamental Movements in Gestalt-Therapy", co-created within the infant/parent dyad in the first year of life and similarly functioning within the co-creating of adult relationship. 

This 30 days certification programme is based on the work of Ruella Frank, Ph.D., who has been exploring early infant movements and their relationship to the adult since the mid-1970s.

I also trained in Sexotherapy at the Ecole de Sexotherapie à Orientation Gestaltiste (in Paris), a school founded by Brigitte Martel and Martine Masson, two european references in the sexotherapy world.

Therefore I am a Certified Coach and a Certified Gestalt Therapist.

My certifications in Gestalt cover both theoretical and practical training, my personal psychotherapy and continuous supervision of my practice by one of my senior peers.

I am French and I have been using English as a professionnal language for 20 years, mostly in business environment.

Therefore consultations can take place in both languages with Adults, Couples or Teenagers.

My professional practice is regularly supervised.

Living is the rarest thing on Earth … Most of the time, we only exist. ”(Oscar Wilde)


“Gestalt” comes from the German verb “gestalten” which means “to shape”, “to emerge”.

Gestalt therapy was born in the fifties in the United States and arrived in Europe in the 70s. It is part of the psychotherapies of the Humanist current. Gestalt considers the Human being in a continuous interaction with others within their environment.

Gestalt therapy incorporates a global vision of oneself to better understand how we function. During consultations, bodily, emotional and sensory dimensions are mobilized.

Instead of focusing on the “Why?” of the situation, in Gestalt will focus on “How? ” which will mobilize change in order to move towards solutions for the patient.

Gestalt thus promotes authenticity of contact with others and is focused on the adjustments that the patient could operate within their environment in order to help them to change any repetitive behaviors that are not helping.

I use an integrative approach that combines several schools of psychotherapy, coaching techniques and a variety of other tools when needed.

- Psycho-corporal Therapy – Gestalt Therapy

- Sexotherapy, centered on the couple

- Therapeutic coaching, centered on processes and solutions

- Additional tools and approahs : MBTI certification, Human Element Certification (Level 2, certfication by Ethan Schutz), Appreciative Inquiry (certification), Transattional Analysis (Certification 101), NLP, Hypnose (certification) 

I have chosen this integrative approach in oder to adapt to each specific situation.

Of course, you will be welcomed without judgment and in total confidentiality.

You will be able to evoke freely both current suffering and older pain from your past that prevent you from beeing fully happy today.

This is also a space for your personal development in order to get to know yourself (much) better and take more conscious decisions for you and for your life !


Following an initial contact by email or phone, we will define the date of our first appointment.

This will also be an opportunity for me to meet you for the first time. I will present you my professional practice and will answer any questions you may have (Gesrtalt-therapy, frequency of your appointments, likely duration of your therapy, etc).

During this consultation, we will discuss your motivations and needs to initiate a therapeutic work.

At the end of this first contact, if we are both comfortable working with each other, we will continue with your first therapy consultation.

My consultations last 50 minutes for an individual and 90 minutes for a couple. We will define the frequency together.
