French par Excellence - Audrey Vallat or Marie-Aude, her French name- has been an interpreter (orally) and a translator (in writing) since 1998.
She rapidly specialised in the medical field, developing year after year a trusting relationship with many doctors at St Vincent’s Clinic, Prince of Wales Private, Macquarie Street, and also with a team of therapists (cranial osteopathy, 5-element acupuncture, physiotherapy, remedial massage, ortho-bionomy, podiatry, kinesiology, and of course hypnotherapy -herself, see Serenity Hypnotherapy Sydney).
She also works with plastic / cosmetic surgeons, hair implant specialists, dentists and orthodontists to meet a growing demand.
