What's special about the Paris Psychology Centre?

Fully licensed clinical psychologists

Unlike in many services, every member of our team is a clinical psychologist or neuropsychologist (not a counsellor, life coach, natural therapist, etc.) with at least six years of training in treatment and research. This includes more than two years of supervised training. All our psychologists are licensed to practise in the European Union (and usually in some other jurisdiction as well). 

We have experience living abroad, just like you

Additionally, we have all had significant life experience studying, living and working in countries
around the world, and helping people in this situation achieve balanced, happy lives. W
e're used

to helping people who are leading a life away from home, including expats, trailing spouses,
creatives, digital nomads
third-culture kids, international students, au pairs and interns.


Only evidence-based treatments that really work

We specialise in providing treatments based on the latest research, which have been scientifically validated to improve emotional wellbeing and resilience. This means that you can be confident that
your time spent in therapy will be worthwhile.

  • An approach that's personalised to you

In individual therapy, treatment can be tailored to your particular needs. You might need strategies to deal with an emotional problem, or you might just want a confidant  and port in a storm. Or someone to soundboard and hash out ideas. Or a coach and ally to help whip you into shape. We’d like to offer whatever it is you need to reach your potential and get back to loving life.

Most of the treatment modalities we use have been demonstrated to be effective over a short period of time, with an average length of around 10-12 weekly sessions. Read more...
