About Us

Dr Sylvie Vanasse is the Director of Parlure. She has more than 30 years experience in adult learning and organisation development. She worked in various industries locally and overseas in both managerial and consulting roles. She is also a psychotherapist and works both as volunteer and professional counsellor supporting people who are facing major life crises.


Sylvie completed her doctorate research at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Centre of New York. She later completed her graduate diploma in psychotherapy and counselling with the Jansen Newman Institute in Sydney.


She has been through several personal life transitions as well as supporting major organisational transformations. So, she understands, not just theoretically but practically, the challenges of making changes happen and approaches both personal and organisational transformations with compassion and realism.
