CHRISSIE HORTON
MSc Counselling Psychology
Counsellor & Psychotherapist

Iím a counsellor and psychotherapist living in the Aude department of Languedoc-Roussillon. I am Person-Centred Integrative in my practice and hold a post-grad Diploma in Counselling, with distinction, and an MSc in Counselling Psychology from Keele University.

I have also taught counselling at University and Further Ed levels and have provided supervision to trainee and qualified counsellors. I have a Certificate in Counselling Supervision and am accredited by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). My counselling and psychotherapeutic work are in line with the BACP Guidelines for Ethical Practice and I have regular supervision to ensure that I stay fit to practice. 

Before coming to live in France, I worked for ten years as a counsellor and psychotherapist for the NHS, attached to a number of GP practices, and I had a private practice at home. I also used to run a series of one-day and weekend workshops focussing on self-awareness, emotional well-being and personal growth.

 Iíve established a private practice in the small, peaceful village where I now live with my husband and dog. I offer one-to-one sessions and couples counselling as well as offering counselling by telephone. My experience is in working with a broad range of issues including:-

  • Stress, anxiety, depression

  • Loss in its many forms e.g. loss of health, identity, direction

  • Bereavement

  • Relationships with self and others

  • Impact of life change

  • Physical, emotional & sexual abuse

  • Sexual orientation

  • Low self esteem and self confidence

I am non-directive in my approach. I believe in the potential for change and healing within a therapeutic relationship that is non-judgemental and based on trust, respect, acceptance and a genuine willingness to understand.
