"My dear readers,
I would like to express my deepest gratitude. A writer is nothing without her readers. I take this opportunity to thank you all for your presence by my side, your feedback, your enthusiasm, your kindness and your loyalty. You inspire and motivate me. I love you."
Christel Petitcollin is a writer, lecturer and instructor in communication and personal development. Passionate about human relations, she specialised in understanding manipulators and mental overefficiency. Ex-normalian and teacher, alongside parents in the education of their children for twenty-five years, she knows all too well the difficulties encountered by these atypical children and their parents.

The books of Christel Petitcollin are highly successful and have been translated in many countries.
The art of overthinking has become a best seller in Germany, China, Korea, Spain, Italy, Poland and Russia. It is also published in Canada (in French).
They are primarily based, after theoretical explanation and demonstration, on the application of the taught tools, exercises, role-playing games and scenarios. Illustrated with many examples from everyday life and linked to the real-life experiences of the participants, my teaching is very concrete, playful and accessible to all.
I make it a point to render knowledge available to the most humble, by carrying out a high-quality popularisation.
Since 1992 :

I also regularly intervene in national and international media (written press, radio and television).
