name is Marianne Humphries and I am a qualified counsellor offering
clinical and pastoral counselling within a person-centred
perspective from my office near Carcassonne in the Aude department
of Languedoc-Roussillon* where I have lived for the past fourteen years.
I gained my post-graduate Diploma in Counselling with the Institute
of Counselling in Glasgow where I continue as a Full Member.
My areas of expertise are couple and
family counselling, grief and bereavement counselling and crisis counselling.
However, I may be able to help with other matters that are concerning you. My
experience shows that counselling can make a very positive impact on our ability
to cope more effectively and purposefully with life, and to deal with the very
diverse problems that can sometimes threaten to overwhelm us.
To all clients I
offer a style of counselling and care that is non-judgmental and non-directive
in approach and a safe space in which they may reflect upon their own particular
issues. Through the exploration of thoughts and feelings and behaviours,
clients are encouraged to work through the matters that are concerning them and
to reach a clearer self understanding. In this way strengths may be found and
used, and appropriate decisions and relevant actions can become clearer for
clients. From this a greater sense of their own personal well-being and
resourcefulness may also be generated.
I offer counselling by
telephone or the internet.
You can contact me in the first instance by email at:
firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may
arrange an assessment session, for which there will be no charge, or simply so
that you may request further information.
