What are the stressors of being an expat?
Many expats face additional stressors such as having to adapt to a new culture, missing family and friends back home, or feeling isolated or misunderstood. I understand these additional factors and take them into account in my sessions.
Life abroad can be challenging at times
As any expat will tell you, moving abroad can be something of a rollercoaster ride. Meeting new friends from around the world, trying exotic foods and flavours, forging your own path in a culture that’s completely foreign. All of these things make being an expat a truly rewarding and unforgettable experience.
However, like any rollercoaster, there are high and low points along the way which make the journey all the more exhilarating. But without your family, friends, and trusted support networks nearby, life as an expat can be challenging, particularly for your mental health. Maybe you need help in maintaining your mental health as an expat.
