Hello and welcome to Counselling In France. The website was started in 2003 to provide details of qualified therapists and life coaches who offer therapy and coaching in English from all over France and in some other European countries and languages, working face-to-face, over the telephone and online.

This website is the main website in the group of websites comprising the Counselling In France association 87/1382. To see a list of sister websites, please click here. The sister websites include a site with information about cancer, a website offering details of therapists in Spain, five websites showing online therapists, a website showing life coaches and a website offering our members a free therapy or coaching website.

If you are a qualified therapist or qualified life coach and would like to join the website, the steps are detailed below. Please complete a submission form and email it to me with the details requested. Your work status and qualifications should be included.
