Audrey (Marie-Aude) Vallat

 

About..

Audrey at French par Excellence -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.

" When you contact  Audrey to explain your health problems, she listens (very important), she asks the right questions, then she organises your appointments with the best doctors for your case.
When you arrive in Sydney, she takes you to the specialist/s and she is with you for all your tests (CT-Scan, MRI…) If other appointments are necessary, thanks to her very good contacts in the medical world, she usually performs miracles and ensures you can see other specialists within the duration of your stay.
It shows she is respected, even quite appreciated, by the doctors, secretaries and medical staff in general, always courteous, polite and patient. She has a wicked sense of humour too!
She is also interested in alternative medicine (osteopathy, acupuncture, kinesiology, ortho-bionomy, hypnotherapy… ) and can advise you to see a given therapist -or herself, as she is also a clinical hypnotherapist.) She is deeply dedicated and helps us as if we were a family member to her,
as if we were a cousin or an old uncle.
Her motto could be ‘Helping others at all times!’
I strongly recommend her."
