Hakim Gonthier

Practitioner Type

One-to-One Coach


Since 2008, I’ve been trained and have been working as a social scientist at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, and abroad.

My PhD thesis on the Men’s movement in Switzerland eventually led me to discover the NWTA. In 2017, experiencing this training opened new avenues in my personal life as well as in my professional career. Soon after, I decided to follow the Shadow Work® path to become a certified coach.

I also trained as a counsellor in batterers’ intervention programs in Gatineau (CAN), where I started to practice group and one-on-one counseling sessions with men. In my ongoing practice in Geneva, I co-conduct group sessions with female domestic violence offenders.

In 2019, I became certified as a Shadow Work® Coach. As a Shadow Work® Coach, I’m particularly careful to be able to capture the spiritual dimension of my clients’ demand.

I work both in English and French.

I live with my wife in Lausanne, Switzerland.
