Carol McCloskey Psychotherapist and Couples counsellor
I offer a safe, supportive, confidential space in which you can speak freely and explore what is happening for you without being judged. Counselling can help us to understand difficult feelings, move on from painful life situations and past-hurts, value ourselves.
My office is Antibes centre. If you are unable to meet me in my practice, I can offer sessions by telephone or online.
I’ve worked extensively in the international community in France with adults, young people and couples.
I offer the following specialisms:
*Survival of life-threatening illnesses or situations
*Trauma and stress due to a range of reasons, unsafe childhood or other past experience
*Expressing anger, understanding panic and anxiety
*Feelings of alienation, isolation
*Grief and bereavement
*Self-recovery from physical, sexual or emotional abuse and assault
*Trust and change for couples
I’m a humanistic therapist and my person-centred approach is based on offering clients a safe space where they are free to explore any issues that they are ready to raise. My presence is non-directive and non-judgmental according to the principle that in the process of therapy the client will gradually use their own strength and identity to know and decide their direction. Growth and change become possible by accompanying the client at their pace on their journey into themselves, their past and present.
In my work with couples I focus on understanding each partner so as to unpack relational patterns and change their perception of the other person..
I welcome diversity and have worked with people of varied backgrounds, nationalities, lifestyles, beliefs and age-groups. I have experience in supporting people far from home and the issues of belonging that can bring.
I work in both French and English. As a qualified therapist I am a member of the French Person Centred Association (AFP-ACP). I abide by their code of ethics
