EDS is an non-profit organization that promotes positive self-esteem in individuals through means of image counseling both external and internal. It is accessible to all Parisians. The aim is to grant access to counseling services for those living in environments and circumstances in which they normally wouldn’t have access to such services.
EDS also works with low-income populations - helping them on a journey of self-discovery, with mobility for events and assistance in the suburbs and in the homes of women and migrants through wellness missions and themed workshops.
Our core values:
• Encourage each person involved in a transformation, emphasizing the expression of his/her personality.
• Valuing each one by bringing him/her to discover or rediscover their potential hidden inside.
• Support people in their desire for change and personal or professional development through counseling and workshops adapted to their needs. High-quality care, attention, and advice help to rebuild the relational links needed for professional integration and better inclusion in society.
Since January 2016, in action following the migrational influx, EDS is also invested with refugees, primarily from Afghanistan. We seek to reach this people group and aid them in their inclusion in French society. Our goal is to overcome fear through compassion, to see others as they truly are by taking care of them and establishing meaningful relationships.
