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.

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 counselors and therapists you are looking for.

Editors´ choice of the month - October 2017

Understanding Depression
Depression is a serious, but common, illness: One in 10 adults report experiencing depression, and the condition is the most common cause of disability in the United States.

Counselling for Alcohol Problems
In the short term alcohol is very effective in numbing the pain of distress and depression but over the longer term it has a negative impact on our physical and mental health, relationships, work and general ability to fulfil our potential and lead a happy and fulfilling 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). 

Passionate Marriage: Keeping Love and Intimacy Alive in Committed Relationships

"I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to improve their marriage or any other form of long-term emotionally committed relationships." Joseph Maussen.

The Counselling Channel
The Counselling Channel produces videos about self-help, counselling, psychotherapy and a range of other talking therapies. This channel is sponsored by CPCAB, the only UK awarding body run by counsellors for counsellors.

Therapy offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable. It allows you to talk with someone who is trained to listen attentively and to help you improve things.

The Key fact sheet explains more about what therapy should be like and what therapists should do.

With one in four teenage girls being depressed, it’s clear that there is no shortage of people needing help. It needn’t cost the earth – and it certainly worked for me.
