Le Fixe is focused on developing a practical and positive approach to wellness and living our best life.
The emphasis is on being pro-active and preventative; learning to understand our thoughts and behaviours, and to change what we don’t like or want before we spiral down into more serious mental health problems.
Grounded in the evidence-based principles of positive psychology and optimism, and the educational premise of task analysis combined with 'do-able', practical learning strategies, Le Fixe was founded by an experienced teacher and psychologist, who had a dream of teaching the masses how they could lead their best life – and in doing so, minimize the impact of the ever-spiraling global mental health crisis.

The Back Story:
Le Fixe grew from the recognition that it’s the simple things that bring me pleasure!
I always drew great pleasure from having a cuppa, either with friends, between meetings, or when taking a break at home.
I noticed that enjoying the simple things was fundamental to me enjoying life.
And enjoying life should surely be our ultimate goal!
The teacher and psychologist in me knows that to achieve this ultimate goal we need to have a lifestyle that works for us: that doesn’t necessarily mean a lavish lifestyle, but it means a freedom to do the things that bring us pleasure and to be with the people who make our heart sing.
Of course, having a healthy mind and body are pivotal to this, and my work as a psychologist has shown me how many people don’t have this mind-body-lifestyle balance right.
In my private practice I guide people to fix this, but I wanted to reach and teach more people.
When enjoying a cup of tea or coffee – either at home or in a café, I think of it as my ‘coffee fix’. For me it is more about the gift of time for myself – a break from work or chores rather than a need for caffeine. When I added the concept of strengthening one’s mind and thinking – the ‘mind fix’ together with maintaining regular exercise and physical wellness - the ‘body fix’… Le Fixe was born.
I developed a series of online programs, resources and offerings for individuals and organizations designed to enhance awareness of what might interfere with one’s quality of life, whilst guiding them with structured programs, routines and suggestions towards living the life they have wanted.
My goal is to make the ‘Le Fixe’ process ‘do-able’ – to make it as simple for people to understand and implement as possible – otherwise, despite the best of intentions, if it becomes all too difficult, people let go – and never achieve the life they want!
Le Fixe is all about ‘Empowering You to Change Your life’, and to celebrate ‘Good Health and Happiness’.
