Rob Houghton

I am a psychosynthesis counsellor and psychotherapist.

I trained and qualified at the BAC and UKCP accredited Psychosynthesis and Education Trust, London.

I have been living near Carcassonne since 2006.

My professional background
After qualifying, I had an independent psychotherapy practice. I was also a freelance trainer for the voluntary and statutory sectors working with groups on counselling and communication skills.

Later, I worked full-time for the NHS as a health adviser in several central London hospitals where I was able to offer short, medium and long-term counselling and psychotherapy. For five years I was an external tutor  to medical students at Queen Mary and Westfield College, London and, until I moved to France, I taught regularly at The Royal London Hospital and St Bartholomew’s Hospital on the postgraduate medical teaching

Nowadays, I am happy to work with individuals in short-term and long-term contracts on a broad range of issues including:-

  • Personal growth

  • Difficulties coping with change

  • Sexuality and sexual good health

  • Psycho-spiritual development

  • Resolving inner conflict and confusion

  • Dying and bereavement

 And what supports me?
At the professional level I have regular clinical supervision. Supervisors are very experienced practitioners who review a therapist's work and give advice. All discussions are confidential and no information is shared which would identify a client. Personally, I am sustained and re-created by my pastimes which include gardening, reading, music, nature and photography. I especially enjoy walking, swimming and picnicking in this most beautiful part of the world.
