About Counselling Madrid
Counselling Madrid was founded in 2008 by Joseph Maussen. Before arriving to Madrid, Joseph had been living and working in England, South Africa, Brazil, Germany and The Netherlands.

After finishing his Counselling studies in The Hague, The Netherlands, it became clear to Joseph that expats, spouses and students benefit from counselling services in their native language while working with qualified counsellors who understand their culture. This is the main reason why Counselling Madrid only provides services to the international community.

Common Issues Treated in Therapy
The Counseling practice helps clients deal with a wide variety of issues. The most common issues are: Anxiety, Bereavement, Chronic Worrying, Depression, Gender Identity Concerns, Grief & Loss, Guilt, Infidelity, Low Self-Esteem, Relationship Conflicts and Work Related Stress.

Ethics: The fundamental values at Counselling Madrid include a commitment to:
  •     Respecting human rights & dignity
  •     Ensuring the integrity of practitioner-client relationships
  •     Enhancing the quality of professional knowledge and its application
  •     Alleviating personal distress and suffering
  •     Fostering a sense of self that is meaningful to the person(s) concerned
  •     Enhancing the quality of relationships between people
  •     Appreciating the variety of human experience and culture
  •     Increasing personal effectiveness
  •     Striving for the fair and adequate provision of counselling services

Expats, Spouses, Students & Foreign Professionals
Many books  have been written about expat life. About a hundred different titles can be found at alone.

They all seem to agree that living in a culture that is not your own while speaking a language that is not your native language means extra challenges on top of your agenda.

At Counselling Madrid you will find the professional and friendly counselling service you are looking for and a listening ear for the added complications in your day to day life.
