Counseling for English or Afrikaans speaking expats in the Netherlands
Are you an expat in the Netherlands feeling depressed, anxious, or isolated now that you have been here for a couple of months?
Sometimes after a drastic change or experience in life, you can be overwhelmed by emotions or you can feel trapped or stuck in life. Whether this is at work, your relationship or life in general, you notice feeling more down, stressed, frustrated or anxious than usual. You would like to change or fix it, but don’t know where to start.
Who is to say how fierce an situation is, or how much trauma at play. What really is important is the extent of suffering you are experiencing. It is in times like these that professional help is essential to guide you to change or do what is necessary remove the emotional blockage you are experiencing.
Relocating your whole life is a big deal!
Nobody can prepare you for the emotional roller coaster that is unleashed on an expat as soon as you are over the honeymoon phase and reality starts to sink in. Adjusting to a new culture, climate and location is often underestimated. Not even to mention the nostalgia and grief of missing all those special friends and beloved family members back home.
Not being able to express yourself adequately in Dutch can be the barrier to seek professional help or counselling for a lot of expats when it could help you to take the next step.
Even though you may recognise a lot of symptoms, your personal experience and triggers are unique. Therefor a tailor-made approach, designed to meet your specific needs and beliefs, one in which you feel comfortable, is the most efficient way to guide you through this difficult transition or phase in your life.
