Expat Counseling

Roots within

It's time to embark on a 

new journey 

 With Psychological Care for Expats

When thinking about living abroad, we sometimes picture a perfect life filled with exciting adventures and things to learn. Relocating to another country, however, comes with its own set of difficulties and concerns that, if not fully overcome, can slowly lead to mental health challenges.

 

As a private therapist and coach, I provide remote psychotherapy and mental health consultation to expatriates living around the world. I work with individuals, couples, and families regardless of physical location. 

Online therapy has been found as effective as face-to-face sessions by several research trials.

 

Marble Surface

Common  Situations

I feel alone, I want to find a sense of belonging

I have a trauma and want to get help in English  with somebody who understands me without being on a long waiting list

I am 'the other half' and feel like a stranger in this country, can you help with changing negative thinking?

I have an addiction and want to break the pattern of my behaviour

I have the expat blues, I miss my family and friends. I want to feel happy

I suffer from anxiety and want to learn how to let go of my need for control
