Counselling & Psychotherapy for Expats in London
What is Expat Counseling?
The International Psychology Clinic is an innovative approach to mental healthcare that actually eliminates language and cultural barriers. Let's clarify that: our mission is to make your experience of therapy as easy and flexible as possible. Being an expatriate in a new environment is hard work, but we got you covered.
Recent research in the field of psychology shows a high incidence of affective and adjustment disorders among the expatriate community. Individuals with adjustment disorders at interview showed a significant positive correlation with four stressors: occupational anxiety, home country anxieties, acculturation and physical ill-health. One of the main reasons why expats are vulnerable to mental health problems is their separation from relatives and friends whilst living overseas. Loved ones provide a support network that is great in times of crisis. However, when you live abroad the distance between you and your relatives and friends makes things difficult.
In addition, seeking support in the new environment is not easy for two big reasons: language and cultural barriers to seeking and accessing psychological support. The International Psychology Clinic offers a 100% confidential service in your preferred language by an excellent English speaking therapist who has the added advantage of cultural competency - so there are no misunderstandings.
