With both personal and professional experience in the international community, we understand the challenges faced by expatriates, cross-culturals and global nomads. Though life presents challenges for all individuals, expatriates often have to deal with additional dilemmas exacerbated by a transition-rich lifestyle. Expat Nest understands the expat experience and is skilled in finding expatriate-focused solutions.
Expat Nest provides professional e-counselling via Skype, FaceTime and telephone to:
- Individuals: We are here to support you with any challenges, worries or anxieties you may be facing during your international experience. For an idea of the kinds of topics and concerns that people bring to counselling, see expat challenges.
- Parents: We can assist with dilemmas like how best to support your child in an international relocation. Or perhaps your teenager has changed so much that you don’t recognise him and find yourself asking, What can I do? For more information on the types of concerns that parents bring to counselling, see expat challenges.
- Teachers: We are here to help you deal with a critical incident at school, an unbearable workload and other challenges faced by educators in the international community.
We are are just a click away. Our online counselling services are perfect for:
- Those with a busy lifestyle. If you are exhausted after work, you may prefer to go online rather than spend more time and energy on commuting.
- Individuals who travel frequently for work and cannot commit to regular face-to-face appointments.
- Parents of Third Culture Kids (TCKs)
- Carers or stay-at-home parents who are unable to take a break from their responsibilities even for a short time.
- Individuals who live in an isolated area or in an area with few specialised services for expats.
- Those who live in a close-knit or smaller community in which ‘everybody knows everybody’ and therefore prefer not to talk to the local counsellor.
- People who have health issues or mobility issues and would prefer to chat in the comfort of their home.
- Individuals who struggle with leaving the house or going outside.
- Those who are not sure about trying counselling or are not motivated to try face-to face counselling often find it’s a good first step to receiving professional support.
- Those who find it easier to open up online.
- People who fancy online communication/technology and for whom it is a natural part of their lifestyle.
