A pedagogy that focuses on structuring and restructuring laterality for anyone struggling to adapt to our particularly right-handed system and who has developed cognitive and conative (volition) disorders. LATERATHERAPY ®


A psychotherapy guidance based on the impacts on identity, individuation process, self-esteem and self-confidence.

My Values

“Two powerful drivers in my life: sharing and teaching!”
Doctor Roger Vittoz’s Anthropological Values

Sharing and teaching Doctor Roger Vittoz’s (1863-1925) anthropological values through his method*:

  • “to exist in existence” through full awareness, receptivity in the present moment;
  • to welcome reality without judgment or condemnation but with appreciation to enable us to apply some of the most valorous of human skills: desire and decision!


Rogerian Humanist Values

To share and teach Carl Rogers’s humanist values* in my pedagogy and therapy practice :


To acknowledge the other person, understand them, be with them, by their side


To be aware, honest with oneself, adaptable, authentic

The Unconditional Positive Outlook

Without prejudice or judgment, to welcome the other person as they are, along with what they experience; with the conviction of their unique value, potential, numerous resources, many skills…


My Testimonial

To share and teach usually against the tide, with much courage to tell about my almost catastrophic schooling, with “minus 50 out of 20” in spelling tests! To try and explain that, despite my parents’ and teachers’ goodwill, 5 school changes and special support, my cognitive abilities were not soothed or restored, nor did they reach their optimum level. To share and teach the hope that, thanks to this amazing intellectual and emotional plasticity in human beings and to the perfectly logical means of laterapedagogy / lateratherapy, especially if applied very early on, “possible is possible”. It is never too late to discover and become who you are.


Joëlle Morice Mugnier offers pedagogical and therapeutic tools that can be used at an initial level by anyone, and particularly by parents. For teachers, help relationship professionals (speech therapists, specialists in handwriting or psychomotor skills, orthoptists, mind-body therapists, psychologists, etc.), it is highly advisable to do the training (see link to training page) for remediation purposes. This pedagogy, designed to structure laterality and specific psychotherapy have an undeniable positive physical, mental and psychological impact, enabling people who suffer and wish to use their full potential and be more together and – why not – find a meaning to their life!
