7cups.com is a website that offers free online counselling via instant messenger. It’s completely anonymous and worth a go if you think it might be beneficial.
You can find private, english speaking counsellors via the International Counselling Service. It is free to have the initial consultation but there will be a charge for any counselling sessions you book. The university may be able to help you cover these costs but it’s worth checking with Student Services first : http://www.icsparis.com/index.asp
