Intrapreneur and coach
I've been listening since I was a child, observing the world around me, and fascinated by human beings and how they function for as long as I can remember.
I've been a trainer for adults for 18 years and a coach for 10 years, and I put myself at the service of others to help them understand what's going on inside them and how to find their place.
I teach with the mindset of a coach, because I like to ignite the spark of curiosity, reveal core interests and support adults in their professional reorientation.
Catherine Duban Doyard
I help women to see burn-out differently. By getting out of the confusion and aligning yourself with what makes sense to you, you can continue on your way with greater serenity.
Languages : French, Italian, English
The people who pass through my energised hands very often have symptoms linked to stress: excessive mental workload, burn-out, poor emotional management and physical worries.
I offer a tailor-made, comprehensive approach to wellbeing. Reiki is at the heart of my practice, reinforced by facial reflexology. Depending on individual needs, other tools such as Bach Flower Remedies, Healy Frequencies, essential oils and Kangen water can be used to enhance the energetic treatment.
Alongside my work as a therapist at Unimind, I co-founded the Wellbeing Seeders cooperative, which offers an original, holistic approach to corporate well-being.
Feel Right - Coach and Dynamic Sophrology
For me, reconnecting with and harmonising the body is the gateway to overall wellbeing, both psychologically and emotionally, and all the more so in the context of burnout, where the body needs to gradually regain its vitality and the mind needs to be put on 'pause'.
My approach, based on coaching and dynamic sophrology®, also draws on sylvotherapy and ecopsychology to take advantage of the therapeutic properties of nature, both outdoors and indoors.

Sophrology and musical creativity (writing, singing, interpreting) enable me to invite you to be gentle and serene, by connecting you to your body with your breath, the first step towards your source of balance and awakening.

Meet the Board
The advisory board is composed of the four founding members of the Madame Papillon association.
It is their role to steer the project in line with the overarching vision.
In the past few years many of my colleagues and friends have gone through burnout. Each one had different experiences, but all were suffering from isolation. I believe that Madame Papillon’s approach of using the power of the community can help tackle the isolation of women going through burnout, but also strengthen the collective intelligence of the professionals who want to support these women and the employers who want to prevent burnout. By putting all our strength together we can better tackle this systemic problem. With my experience in governance of non profit organisation I hope to support Madame Papillon’s bold mission.
As the mother of two kids and working for a non-profit, it did not take me long to realise that women are unrealistically over-stretched.
They expect a lot from themselves, considering the world, the colleagues, the partners, the family… expect them to over-deliver on all matters. This results in a constant pressure and a feeling of guilt which cannot last longer. Having experienced this pressure and stress myself (still sometimes now), I also realised that sorority, care and mutual support are not very valued in this men’s world. Well, I am a feminist, you caught me Mme Papillon is the space to restore what was missing, rebuild what has been undernourished… It’s about time we have it as we need it!
Reflecting on my own burnout, I was surprised by two main things – the isolation I felt going through something that rocked my life so fundamentally and the knock to my confidence and identity I experienced as a result. I looked for a space to share my own experience and find other women who had been through similar, and didn’t find exactly what I needed. Speaking to other women from the international community in Brussels, I saw it was not just me who was missing this space, so we have been putting the building blocks in place to establish it. Burnout taught me about my own personal limits, but also highlighted again the importance of a supportive environment. The power lies in community and the possibilities are available to us all to create what we need in life.
The last 14 years I have been dedicated to managing teams. I have had a lot of fun and good moments but complicated moments too. As a manager you realise how fragile the well being of a team is. You realise how important it is to take care of each person not only as manager but also as colleagues. Burn out is not only about workload, there are many more factors that can contribute to it, work and personal. This is why holistic care of a team is so important to prevent burnout, to support your colleagues during the process and also important after it.
I myself also went through a burnout, which was the consequence of various factors work and in my personal life, but what was key for me to go through it and become more resilient was the support of my colleagues, my family and a number of different professionals.
Now it is up to me to give back what I received, and Madame Papillon is my way to give back and do it with some of my favorite people in the world, who supported me during my burn out.
