By visiting my site you will discover my passion for four subjects which continue to enrich my life and which I aspire to share with a wider audience through conferences, publications and short videos clips.

  • French Language & Culture (through my work as a private tutor and speaker)

  • Champagne: History & Culture (through my work as a speaker and accredited tour guide in the Champagne-Ardenne Region - Grand Est Region in France)

  • Well-Being and Mental Health (through my work as a mindfulness practitioner and speaker)

  • Spirituality (through my work as a speaker & recitals of readings of poems, lyrics, quotes and testimonies of people's personal experience from all over the world)

So here are the main highlights of my personal and professional journey:

I come from the beautiful town of Troyes located in the  Champagne-Ardenne region (Grand Est) in France where I worked as a tour-guide on behalf of the Tourist boards of Troyes and Reims. It was my greatest and endless pleasure to open people's eyes and heart to the artistic and historic treasures of my region.

In year 2000 I moved to England to work as a French assistant in secondary schools before undergoing my teaching training to become a fully qualified teacher specialising in French.

Then I set up "Fall4French" to work as a freelance French tutor and professional speaker. I am still giving talks on French culture to various French organisations and schools.

In 2017 I qualified as a practitioner of Mindfulness and in Reiki in 2020 which eventually led me to specialise in the theme of Smile combined with breath work and mindfulness to act as a liberating tool and  unfathomable source of inner joy and knowledge of oneself.


"A smile brings peace from within,
and around you, brightens up your eyes, your face and everything you touch with  your heart"   Saïda
