A native of Cannes, France, Edwige has had a lifelong interest in the powerful connections between mind, body and spirit. Her impressive list of degrees, certifications and areas of study have enabled her to build upon her natural gift of intuitive healing.

Edwige believes that in these challenging times, when we cannot find safety in our external environment, we need to turn inward for the source of our inspiration and comfort, learn to maximize our vibrant energy potential, and develop inner calmness and strength. That is the essence of Edwige's Fresh Start Program.

Edwige has created a unique blend of Eastern and Western techniques such as life-coaching Yoga and hypnosis. She believes in the integration of physical, mental and spiritual elements which guide individuals to discover their unlimited energy resources and become the person they always wanted to be: strong focused, confident, and filled with Joie de vivre (french for Joy of life). She believes in developing vision and maximizing strengths to reach peak performance. Her transformational methods integrate mind, body, and spirit.


Develop self-confidence through a conscious awareness of positive thoughts and beliefs.


Find balance through a balanced diet and a combination of movements that maximize everyday energy, strength, and rejuvenation.


Tap into subconscious inner resources to reach full potential through specific visualizations and self-hypnosis techniques

Engaging the Subconscious Mind to Manifest Permanent Change
Requires an Intelligent Sequence...

The sequence for using these strategies is taken from her "7 Tips to Maintain Emotional Balance and Create Joie de Vivre."

1. Clear your mind of anxiety and other unwanted emotions with the Dexxtra Technique.

2. Imagine the way you would like to be with the Screening Room Technique.

3. Become Calm, Centered and Connected with the 3C's mindful meditation.

4. Create courage and strength with this declaration: "I Can! I Do! I Will!"

5. Install healthy self-esteem, declaring "Victory to me!" To become your inner coach instead of your inner critic.
