The South West France Psychotherapy Service is a network of trained psychoanalytic psychotherapists who are all registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy, the main regulating body for psychotherapists in the United Kingdom.
The South West France Psychotherapy Service offers a referral service for people seeking psychotherapy in the Midi-Pyrenees region, in either French or English.
The network was set up by Rosette Rozenberg and Isabelle Daudy.
Rosette Rozenberg initially trained and worked as a secondary school teacher. Thereafter, she worked for 23 years in mental health, in both the voluntary and statutory sectors. For the past twenty years she has been working as a psychotherapist in private practice; she has also worked as a supervisor, helping to train others. Rosette Rozenberg has taught on the Masters degree in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy programme at Sheffield University. For six years she was on the Clinical Committee of the Association for Group and Individual Psychotherapy (the organisation with which she trained). She has extensive experience of assessing people’s suitability for psychotherapy.
Rosette Rozenberg has worked with people from a wide range of ethnic and cultural backgrounds and also with people of different sexual orientations. Having lived in a number of different countries, she has experience of moving to a new country and has some understanding of the problems and difficulties that this may entail. She has been living and working in France in the Midi Pyrenees area since 2004. She is bilingual in French and English and has experience of working as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist in both languages.
Isabelle Daudy has been living and working as a therapist in central Toulouse since 2001. She has French nationality and is bilingual in French and English, but lived in Britain for most of her life before settling back in France. She trained in London and worked as a therapist in Cambridge. During this period she had a small private practice and also worked as an honorary individual and couple therapist at Addenbrooke¡¯s hospital, as well as for a voluntary organisation helping women survivors of sexual abuse.
In addition, Isabelle Dausy created and ran a counselling service within LIFECRAFT, a self-help mental health charity, also based in Cambridge. Since coming to Toulouse, she has been working mainly in private practice, but also for a voluntary organisation (l¡¯Association des Soins Palliatifs), running support groups for volunteers who work with the terminally ill. She has also completed further training in Systemic Family Therapy.
