Perhaps changing your user-name may help you.
The name and the profession do not marry well, and it may be perceived as a lack of credibility.
First thing that crossed my mind too, but I'm not sure you can read too much into it, but a Psychiatrist/Psychologist might. Overall I don't think it is relevant.

Re: Depression Anxiety Counselling Skype Phone Counselling CH

I would like to know what the difference is between a counselor and a psychologist.
It is confusing to distinguish between therapists, counselors, psychologists etc When I hear of a psychologist, I"m thinking about a person who has a doctorate degree in psychology but I may be wrong.
It would also be interesting to know if there is any regulatory body for counselors and therapists. Sometimes I feel like there are a lot of people calling themselves therapists

There are a lot of people calling themselves therapists or councillors - and even the associations are not always "officially recognised". You or I can setup tomorrow as councillors.

However, in defence of the OP this is not the case.

Re: Depression Anxiety Counselling Skype Phone Counselling CH

When I first registered in 2007 I didn't anticipate using the forum to advertise and don't think I can change my user name, but yes I agree the name doesn't marry up well.
Yes anyone can call themselves a Counsellor or Psychologist and if you read my website I say the same thing, but what matters is where their training and qualifications are from eg the University of the Kellogg's Cornflake Packet or from a Credible University. Vulnerable clients don't usually think to check this out.
I am also a member of the British Association Counsellors and Psychotherapists and also The Swiss Association Of Counsellors which have stringent guideline's to become a member .

You're prices are enough to send anyone into further depression!
If you don't want to use the OP's services because they're too expensive for you or you're too tight to pay, then don't. But I don't understand why you would want to try to publicly undermine a fellow EFer trying to make a living.

I'm not being cynical I'm asking a reasonable question. I am depressed and see a Psychologist (on referal from a doctor of course). 145 is more than I pay but less than I have paid with other people, as such it is not unreasonable.
It's about half of what my psychiatrist charges.

I think the OP was very clear, and the repeated advice to first seek proper medical advice and act on it is very sensible.

For those unclear on the distinction between the various types of treatment for depression mentioned, a psychiatrist is going to try and work out underlying long-term causes thereof, including the very physical effects and causes of brain chemical imbalance. And will also be able to prescribe drugs to treat it. A psychologist will generally look at more here-and-now problems and be able to advise on ways to avoid or minimise such, and a counselor is more about being able to listen to someone's life issues and help to put things into perspective and perhaps advise on lifestyle changes that may help balance things better.

A vast over-simplification, of course, and there's a lot of overlap, but it may help to see why one may be more or less appropriate in different circumstances.

Re: English Counselling Face or Phone Support Switzerland

Thank you for your post.

It's good to have a quality counselling service in English as a recommendation. I especially like your accreditations, I agree, there are too many people in the expat world who call themselves counsellor or coach without appreciate accreditations. I always check those out before using a service.

Btw, I especially like your phone support.

Anxiety Depression Counselling in CH Skype Phone from a British Therapist

According to a recent survey in 2014 by the UK Mental health Foundation Anxiety in women is on the rise . Of course we all have day to day worries and pressures in life, that's normal. However if you feel your Anxiety is becoming hard to control, you have pre occupied thoughts, and it is interfering in your day to day life , you are no longer enjoying things like you used to, perhaps having difficult sleeping, feel know one understands or can help you then maybe now is the time to seek support to prevent it getting more out of control .
Firstly let me tell you, you are not going crazy! Most people who suffer from Anxiety are those people that are the people pleasers and usually the most caring people ever !
People don't like to talk about Anxiety with others eg Friends for fear of being seen as a failure or seen as not being able to cope. Many people suffer from Anxiety, it is like a hidden illness but no one likes to talk about it . If you feel that now is the time to change and take control then why not get in touch with me ? Let me help you manage your anxiety , stop those pre occupying thoughts and worries. I can help you take the control back in your life.
I am a British Counselling Therapist offering phone, Skype and Face to face Counselling all over Switzerland. Prior to becoming a Therapist I had a background in Mental Health as a Senior Community Psychiatric Nurse.

Caroline is a first class therapist , always showing the highest degree of integrity , empathy and understanding.

I had a really great experience working with Caroline. She is a caring and practical guide who taught me to look at the interactions I have with people differently, and to recognize where behaviours I exhibit come from. It's helped me be more self-aware and increased my empathy for others, too.

Caroline has a wealth of expertise and skill in addition to her excellent academic qualifications. She has a simple and structured approach to help show the wood from the trees. She provides practical tools which are easy to understand and use in your real life challenges. In addition to her genuine care and attention to you as an individual her service is unique by understanding the environment of an expat and the trials as tribulations that brings to an individual professionally and personally. For me she has helped me to make key turning points in both my home and work environments. Thank you.

My Australian wife (I am the Swiss husband) needed a counsellor with English mother tongue and we are very happy we found Caroline. Caroline is a foreigner in this country, too, and therefore understand exactly how my wife feels about the Swiss culture and the problems that come with it. Caroline's got a good (english) sense of humor, and that helps a lot, too. We live in Zurich, and counseling by phone is much easier and efficient than we though. Two thumbs up for Caroline!

Talking to Caroline is like checking in with an old friend who isn't afraid to tell it like it is. Her warmth and openness are solidly backed by huge experience and a real gift for doing what she does. She has certainly made me see the world differently, and I would recommend her unreservedly.


<li class="clearfix lfr-discussion hidden"> 4/14/14 12:16 PM

Professional , balanced and get's clients well on the way to self realisation and self induced change. "step out, and look in" reveals all and is helping us change our lives for the better. Caroline is focussed and tells it as it is. Comfortable surrounding and relaxed atmosphere to put you at ease. Only go to see her if you are convinced you are ready to get the personal realisation, results especially in any particularly sensitive areas of your life.

Testimonials for me that include ...

Caroline is the most amazing therapist I’ve ever met (and I’ve met quite a few!). Not only is she very professional, she is also a really warm and genuine person, who truly cares about and understands what you’ve been through. She always shows the highest degree of empathy and she is never afraid of bringing in her personal experience when giving advice.HIGHLY recommended!
Thank you Caroline, meeting you was like ‘coming home’.

Caroline is a first class therapist , always showing the highest degree of integrity , empathy and understanding. If you can meet her face to face its of course preferred however I had cause to connect via both Skype and telephone in the past and was impressed at how adaptable Caroline's approach is to ensure a very personal and warm dialogue even if remotely managed - she therefore comes VERY highly recommended from me.

Caroline has a wealth of expertise and skill in addition to her excellent academic qualifications. She has a simple and structured approach to help show the wood from the trees. She provides practical tools which are easy to understand and use in your real life challenges. In addition to her genuine care and attention to you as an individual her service is unique by understanding the environment of an expat and the trials as tribulations that brings to an individual professionally and personally. For me she has helped me to make key turning points in both my home and work environments. Thank you.

My Australian wife (I am the Swiss husband) needed a counsellor with English mother tongue and we are very happy we found Caroline. Caroline is a foreigner in this country, too, and therefore understand exactly how my wife feels about the Swiss culture and the problems that come with it. Caroline's got a good (english) sense of humor, and that helps a lot, too. We live in Zurich, and counseling by phone is much easier and efficient than we though. Two thumbs up for Caroline!

    I cannot speak highly enough of Caroline and her Expat Counselling service for Couples.

    Moving abroad to Zurich , Switzerland as British Expats put a huge strain on our relationship and we were so lucky to have found Caroline a British Expat herself , so she understands what its like but also an experienced Qualified UK Counsellor . She was so friendly and easy to talk to. She didn't take sides and supported us both. She had an amazing bag of tools to help guide us and support us and not only help us with the transitions of living abroad but made our marriage stronger. We are now back in the UK but I strongly advise anyone struggling to give Caroline a call. Thanks Caroline , a 5 Star rating from us x

    Caroline is a wonderful therapist, and in all the eight years I have known her, she has always been very professional, kind and would go out of her way to find the time in her busy schedule.

    Caroline, again thankyou...


  • 7/23/14 1:40 PM
    I had a really great experience working with Caroline. She is a caring and practical guide who taught me to look at the interactions I have with people differently, and to recognize where behaviors I exhibit come from. It's helped me be more self-aware and increased my empathy for others, too.
