About Florence Liard

Certified art-therapist, counselor and professional coach

I am a certified counselor and art-therapist (RNCP II) since 2011 and a member of the International Coach Federation (ICF)

And so as a certified professional coach I have services for corporate and for individuals.


Coaching and art therapy: a winning combination

It appeared to me, more than 10 years ago, that these two approaches of coaching and art-therapy are complementary and the combination is very powerful. I am always amazed at the results that this brings to customers.
That’s how this link (hyphen) between Art-therapy and Coaching  became  Art-Coaching, as I used to call it.

The art forms used

I offer individual and group sessions. I can use a wide variety of art forms as collage, painting, drawing, photography, music, writing, drama, movements, clowning, clay, and relaxation.

I have created a bilingual drama workshop ““The Frogs & Roastbeefs”  in Châteauneuf du Faou, Finistère, Brittany. I animate that workshop every Thursday evening for all from 10 years.



My Background

Florence LIARD Coaching - Public speaking training and coaching

Art has always been part of my life as well as training. I practiced ballet, tap dancing, ballroom dancing and as a teenager I wanted to be ballet teacher.

But I became Software Engineer and started a career as a project manager. During the same time, I practiced Aïkido and became Aïkido teacher.

My career has been mostly in an international context, thus I have had the opportunity to practice English.

Then my free time was fully dedicated to  drama, singing, musicals. I trained with both french and English teachers in France and London. From 1993 to 2000 I accompanied artists (actors, painters, musicians), translated, adapted and produced a new English  drama in French and in English. When a french-american actress told me in 1997 that she wanted to hire my services as a coach I discovered what was coaching and it fitted my way I accompanied people.

Thus in 2000 I decided to create my own consulting and training company and to be trained and certified in professional coaching. As a certified coach I have always looked for methods and techniques to enhance my accompaniment with organizations and individuals. I often used writing, drama, voice in my services as for instance in my training “Public speaking”, and “Annual assessment interviews”. In 2009, I found a professional training in art therapy and decided to be certified as an art-therapist, so did I in 2011 with ARTEC Montpellier . 

And so I reunited my professional side and my passion side, my left brain and my right brain, the heart of my business with the business of my heart.
