A warm welcome to everyone
Why do people have therapy?

People seek counselling to help them resolve emotional, psychological and relationship issues. They may be experiencing difficult and distressing events in their lives, such as bereavement, divorce, health issues or job concerns. Or they may have more general underlying feelings of anxiety or dissatisfaction with life. 

Some clients feel isolated and have no one else to talk to, but even people with supportive family and friends can find it difficult to talk to them about feeling anxious or depressed. Or they may just find it easier to talk about personal, family or relationship issues with an independent and professional therapist.

At Counselling Madrid we know that living and working abroad brings many challenges while support networks take time to develop. That´s why we always give clients a warm welcome and reserve two hours when they decide to come in for their first evaluation session.
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.

Expats, Spouses, Students & Foreign Professionals

Many books  have been written about expat life. About a hundred different titles can be found at Amazon.com 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.

Why Divorced People Are Key to Understanding Marriage
A study of about 10,000 Dutch adults looked at the health of people over the course of various marital transitions. At the start of the study, the participants were asked about their health in general. They were also asked if they had each of 13 health complaints (such as regularly having an upset stomach, or often feeling tired) and 23 chronic conditions (such as serious heart disease or heart attack, or chronic obstructive lung disease).
