Building new lives and relationships in the country we now call home was never a challenge that any of us wanted to face with the backdrop of a global pandemic, and yet here we are.

The last few years have challenged us all, but perhaps few more than those who live far away from friends, family and familiar support systems.

We have been asked to adapt to extraordinary circumstances. It's been a humbling experience for me as a therapist as much as my clients. We have, all of us, lost something perhaps family members, friends, a relationship, job opportunities, plans to build a family, property, hope for prosperity in a new place. The losses can be obvious or less so.

Some of the things life throws at us are extremely painful. We might be struggling with a relationship that has stagnated or become toxic. Perhaps living our life in a country where we have few friends, or struggle with the language might leave us feeling isolated. We might have difficult relationships with family members past and present, or work might be difficult to come by. Things change and sometimes we struggle to adapt. As a result, we might have low self-esteem, suffer from anxiety, panic attacks, disordered eating habits, even self-harm and suicidal thoughts.

The world cannot go back to how it was before, and neither can we. Fortunately though, we can learn to live differently to acknowledge our losses, if not accept them - and to build a new version of the future where we have a chance to find contentment.

Dealing with change is something that I am well equipped to support you with. I am trained to be with you through the stages of your counselling process,  encouraging you to find the kind of self-reflection and deep awareness building that will allow you to move forward with confidence and clarity.

Online therapy is proven to be as effective as face-to-face therapy. We can work conveniently, securely and efficiently fitting around your lifestyle, location or responsibilities.

I offer a FREE 30-minute video or voice call where we can meet, chat about therapy and how it could be useful to you. There's no commitment and we can talk about any questions you might have. See my live availability and book your free session online instantly via my website.

I know that therapy can seem daunting - particularly if it's something we haven't tried before. I'm a very informal person and there is no need to be anything but yourself in therapy with me. And if you don't know who that is yet, then I can help you to find them.
