Online support for ex-pats living over seas

Living way from home? Starting a new life abroad? Need an English-speaking therapist? I have been helping people to adapt to living abroad for many years, and you may also find counselling and support online for living overseas on this site (worldwide service) Wherever you are in the world with online therapy you may find the help and support you need when you need it. Talking can help and many people find therapy helpful in situations that can leave them feeling confused and stressed.

The change is not always good

Mental health is as important as physical health and we are all subject to its effects both the good and not so good. Lovely new places to see and new worlds to explore, this can seem tempting and exciting, for many people it can be life changing and personally rewarding, as well as a worthwhile endeavour to enhance their life. It can also over time degenerate into a living hell, you may find it harder to adjust than expected, may be because you or your partner is not coping the way you expected, or the life you hoped for is not working out as expected.

Working Over Seas?

Living abroad can lead to its own set of problems, rela- tionships and friendships can become distant and strained, feelings of isolation and desperation can well up effecting your ability to cope in times of change. Illnesses or accidents to family and friends back home can leave people feeling helpless and distraught, when situations back home develop into crisis, the expense of flying back can be a big drain on savings or it can build up into a large debt that can lead to more pressure. This can lead to serious arguments and bad feelings with partners. Adjusting to a new life in a new country can start off well but in time some people find it hard to leave behind family and friends and this can contribute to feelings of depression or isolation. Trying to find an English-speaking counsellor in some countries can be difficult, if you are living or working in countries like Holland, Germany and France or any country that is not English speaking it can be hard to find the English therapy service you need. Expiates working in Asia or the Arab world may find that therapy is just not available to them at all.

Culture Shock

Culture shock is often felt when people move to a new country to live, maybe you have travelled to work there for a few years, or are starting a new life abroad. Culture shock is felt more in countries that are very different from your old culture and speak a different language, but that’s not always the case and people moving from one English speaking country to another can also feel that the trans- ition is harder than was first expected. Some of the common changes felt range from depression to increased irritability, low moods and feelings of isolation, as well as amplified feelings of stress and anxiety and other symptoms. Therapy can help by helping you modify your way of handling your thoughts and feeling while adjusting to the new environment.

Feeling down? There is hope

However, it is affecting you there is some hope, therapy can help by rationalising or validating your thoughts and feelings towards understanding behaviours and reactions that can allow you to adjust to new environments and changes in rela- tionships while away. Relationships can change or one partner is finding it harder to cope, this could become a real issue as time goes on. Some online therapy may help you learn to understand yourself and others, that in turn may help you make the right choices at the right times. Some people have to seek out work wherever they can find it, that often means that the choice they have can be reduced. Employers are sending their staff overseas for longer and after the recession, some employers can make it harder to say no if you want promotion. Less work and more expectation can reduce the options available. Opportunities for advance- ment in a career are more likely to send people to other countries if they want to earn the money for themselves or for the family. Some do it from choice but find the reality and actuality are not what they expected to be, this can leave them feeling home sick or find that the regret is becoming overwhelming. Some have no choice if they want to continue to work or if they need the money and cannot find any other way of providing the income they require, people who have issues can find that they have no real problem until they find themselves away from the normal social support network they have built over a life time. Some feelings can seem to come from nowhere, all of a sudden you can find yourself losing confidence or feel anxiety is effecting your performance and ability to cope with general stress, People can find that normal activities that gave them no problems before start to interfere with normal life, they can start drinking too much or eating more and even turn to gambling or seek out comfort in the sex industry. This online ex-pat therapy service, may provide the support you need.
