Ms Carole Barbier

Psychotherapeutic Integrative Counsellor

I’m interested in people, and I enjoy helping others.  I specialise in counselling people from higher education and professional backgrounds, including adults, students and young people.  But I’m here to help anyone in or near Bath, Bristol or north Wiltshire in England, or with access to Skype video.

I myself have an international background: I’ve lived and been educated in France, Africa, Canada, the USA and the UK, and I’ve travelled widely.


I’m fluent in English and French, and I initially trained as a French teacher.  I’m used to using IT in my work, and I frequently deliver counselling to overseas clients via Skype.

I’ve also worked as a university tutor, trainer, and consultant on languages, education, and parental engagement.  But during a career spanning over 30 years, I discovered that it’s difficult for a teacher to support the emotional wellbeing that is so necessary for enjoyment and learning.  And so I took a decision in 2006, to retrain as a therapist.
