Service Offerings

Expatriation and repatriation can be tough on you and your children. You may be wondering why your usually outgoing child has become quiet and withdrawn, or is acting out. You may wonder why you feel so sad when this was supposed to be an adventure of a lifetime. You and your children may be grieving the identity you left behind and have yet to find your place in your new country.

As a social & emotional counsellor with 10 years international school experience working with 100s of globally mobile children, young people and their families, I am familiar with the challenges you face. Challenges such as:

  • the loss of close support networks such as friends and family
  • adjusting to a new culture & expectations
  • academic disruptions leading to academic anxiety
  • feeling alone, isolated and/or different (will I ever 'fit in' anywhere?)
  • transnational youth and identity (who am I in relation to the world/my family)
  • being exposed to significant trauma/s
  • stress and overwhelm
  • young people acting out and engaging in risky behaviours, or turning inwards to self injury
  • feeling unable to express this to people 'back home' as everyone thinks you are 'living the dream' which can further compound how you feel.

It can be really hard as you want your child to enjoy living in your new country and to experience all it has to offer. But right now it is tough. If you or your children are struggling, please book an initial session with me to see if I am a good fit to help things get better for you.
