Religious Affiliation: Christian
Clinical Specialties: Depression, anxiety, trauma/PTSD, cross-cultural /long-distance relationships, coping with isolation/loneliness, changing unhealthy behaviors, healing past hurts, life transitions, making hard decisions, issues related to aging and eldercare, supporting family caregivers
Cross-Cultural Experience: I grew up as a TCK, with Finnish parents who immigrated to America when I was an infant. I’ve traveled extensively, including spending the last four years of my life as a nomad, living and working in 26 different countries on four continents. That nomadic period started with a big transition to Japan, getting a work visa, a job, becoming a resident, and moving my life there, spending over a year working for a large company with locals and other expats. I know the challenges of suddenly being completely without language and going from a life of general mastery to general cluelessness, from having a big supportive community to having no one and starting from scratch. I’ve spent six months or more living in Finland, Thailand, Italy, and Australia. I have also worked to train missionaries and humanitarian aid workers moving abroad, and worked to support them while on the field and helped them transition home.

Religious Affiliation: I work with clients from different religious backgrounds and spiritual orientations.
Clinical Specialties: I am an English psychological therapist living and practicing in Toulouse, France. I work with individuals and couples, offering counselling and psychotherapy support with a wide range of problems. The sorts of things people may bring to me include, but is not limited to: family and relationships issues, difficulties living as an expat, difficulties from childhood, burnout or collages of a professional function, stress, life-stage events, abuse and trauma, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, chronic illness, bereavement and loss, identity issues, self-esteem and confidence issues, mental health difficulties. All of these reasons, and more, may bring a person to therapy. However, you do not have to be in crisis or on the verge of one, before choosing to seek counselling and psychotherapy. As an integrative practitioner, I do not adhere rigidly to a specific model, or way of working, but rather I take a multidisciplinary approach by adapting and drawing on a variety of therapeutic traditions to tailor how we work in a way that will be most beneficial to you as an individual.
Cross-Cultural Experience: From the UK and I have previously lived in Geneva and then moved to Toulouse with my family so I have first-hand experience of the types of challenges faced when moving and living abroad.

Religious Affiliation:
Clinical Specialties: Psychotherapy with highly Creative, highly Sensitive and/or Gifted people – children, youth and adults. I work from the perspectives of both psychodynamic and Jungian depth psychotherapy (I am a training candidate at the C.G. Jung Institute of Colorado). I work locally in-person and online worldwide. My focus is to help my clients thrive, heal, become fully alive, discover and fulfill their purpose/destiny for being on this planet at this time in earth’s history. In the interest of pursuing these goals, I serve as a metaphorical Wilderness Guide for a trek through the wilderness of Inner Territory. We live in a world culture in which, for the most part, it is not ok to HAVE/FEEL emotions or EXPRESS them. This creates many problems for all of us, especially those who are highly creative, sensitive and/or intelligent. In the context of all of this, much of my work involves helping with the following problems: Super-sensitivity, anxiety, depression, relationships issues, school or work stress, self-esteem/identity problems, alienation, isolation, trauma, grief and loss, adoption, facing chronic or life-threatening illness, ADD or ADHD, sensory processing disorders, learning differences or disabilities and related concerns.
Cross-Cultural Experience: I grew up in an extended family in which aunts and uncles were often going to live abroad and returning from having lived abroad. My mother’s parents were medical missionaries to Peru when she was an infant and returned when she was 6 years old. They started a clinic in the high Andes which is 90+ years later is a hospital (which I have visited).  Both of these situations had a great impact on my own development, giving me an awareness of and connection to the whole world from an early age. My sophomore year of college was in Valencia, Spain, so I have experienced the adjustments of living in another culture. This includes thinking I had adequately prepared for this adventure, while almost instantly discovering upon arrival in Spain that I had not; learning the culture and the language in that year to the extent that I was dreaming in Spanish by the end of the year; and then experiencing significant culture shock when I returned to the US after my year of study was over.  I also have an unofficially adopted son (at the age of 18 after his mother’s death) whose birth father is from Thailand and whose birth mother is Caucasian. I have worked with clients in various countries in Europe, Asia, Central and South America and Australia.

Religious Affiliation: I have had training and experience in working with people of many different religious faiths, spiritual orientations and backgrounds, as well as, individuals who identify as agnostic or atheist.
Clinical Specialties: [Individuals, Couples, & Families – Adults and Adolescents] Expatriate and repatriate challenges (including culture shock, reverse culture shock, adjustment and short/long term goals); international student adjustment; TCK, feelings of dislocation; isolation; discrimination; life transitions; bereavement (including traumatic/sudden loss); relationship issues; divorce; family conflict; estrangement from family of origin; trauma; PTSD; victims of sexual abuse; person’s struggling to reconcile moral injury from combat; workplace &/or school or academic stressors; depression; anxiety; adult effects of neurodiversity (including: dyslexia, dyspraxia, and Asperger’s Syndrome); support for carers; career planning; identity; and personal development.
Cross-Cultural Experience: I worked with immigrants and refugees in Miami, prior to actualizing my own desire to live and work overseas. I taught academic English at a Japanese university whilst providing phone counseling to both foreign expats and Japanese repatriates on Tokyo English Life Line. I later extended my cross-cultural experience including having spent time in India and having lived and worked in Northern Iraq and in London, United Kingdom where I trained more extensively in the field of counseling and held clinical placements at a bereavement service, a hospice, a specialist Asperger’s Syndrome Service and an NHS hospital, as well as having been a phone counselor with a national mental health hotline and a support worker with victims and witnesses of crimes. I have provided counseling/psychotherapy to clients from over 19 different countries across a range of ages, socio-economic backgrounds, ethnicities, languages of origin, and religious/spiritual orientations. My having spent over a decade of my adult life living, working and providing counseling in foreign countries affords me a unique world perspective, which I feel extends beyond what can be taught from within one’s country of origin alone. I apply a person-centered and existential lens to my approach to therapy in which I seek to understand the client’s world view from their shoes, without assumption or stereotype, but rather through unpacking meaning with the client and meeting them where they are. I believe that human suffering is a normal part of life, rather than a deficiency or pathology, and I value and honor difference. When one challenges themselves outside of their comfort zone or place of origin, I think it is only natural that they will face periods of unease. In confronting this unease, I feel there is an opportunity to learn about oneself and to grow and evolve. I find working with people facing inter-cultural issues to be phenomenally rewarding and I feel honored to be a part of that process with clients.

Religious Affiliation: None
Clinical Specialties: I specialise in resilience; identity and rootlessness in Third Culture Kids; I help expatriates and their families make successful overseas moves; and all the transitions involved in expatriation and repatriation. Alongside this, I work with clients to deal with stress, depression, anxiety, phobias, bereavement, lack of self-esteem, divorce, loneliness, relationship and parenting problems. I work with individuals, couples and families face-to-face in Lisbon and London or anywhere via skype or telephone. I hold both a Bachelors and Masters degree from De Montfort University, I am a qualified Transactional Analyst Psychotherapist, Coach and a Neuro-Linguistic Practitioner. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists: 118342 and the Association for Coaching: ALC0816M.
Cross-Cultural Experience: My professional focus has been cross cultural work for the last 7 years, specialising with working with Adult Third Culture Kids, Expatriates and Global Nomads. I work with adults of all ages, living anywhere in the world. The thing they all have in common is that at some stage in their life, they have lived in a different country to the one they were born in – and this has created problems. Those who have moved for the first time as an adult tend to have different concerns to those who moved as a child. My clients choose me because I specialise in expatriate, cross cultural and third culture kid issues and I have personal experience of these issues myself. I have lived in England, Scotland and Portugal and worked throughout Europe and in the USA with people from many different cultures and backgrounds. I have clients in Europe, North Africa, North & South America, the Middle East and Australia.  I normally work in English and have experience of working via interpreters. I use some specific techniques to help Adult Third Culture Kids claim their unique sense of self, feel more complete and settled. Growing up between worlds as a Third Culture Kid creates many advantages in terms of cultural intelligence, multi-lingual capacity and tolerance of others but it can also have the downside of unresolved grief, difficulty in forming significant relationships and not really knowing where home is. I work with a mix of transactional analysis, strengths-based resilience, story telling techniques and art therapy to help build a stronger sense of identity and belonging in my clients. I encourage potential clients to make use of the Free Call option to explore if they would like to work with me.

Clinical Specialties: Specific obstacles of artists, eating disorders, gender/sexuality (LGBTQ+), trauma. But of course I also treat more common mental health problems like depression, burn-out, anxiety, … I also welcome clients who might not have a severe psychological problem and just need someone to listen and help put things in perspective. My clinical style is inspired by client-centered therapy which is focussed on empathy, authenticity, acceptance, emotion and the importance of the therapeutic relationship. Having dealt with my own obstacles through therapy in the past I know how hard, but also how rewarding and fulfilling the process can be. My experiences help me to relate on a more profound level with my clients. More information can be found on my website (in both English and Dutch).
Cross-Cultural Experience: I have worked for an organization that provided therapy for international clients. This could be either students, immigrants or refugees. I’ve worked with people from all over the world in Dutch, English and with translators. So I’m very aware to be sensitive to cultural differences. In my private practice I also work closely with a refugee center to provide them with therapy. In my personal life I also travel a lot, and a part of my family is British.

Clinical Specialties: I hold a PhD in clinical psychology and I have been trained in existential psychotherapy and counselling. I am legally registered as a health psychologist (GZ-Psycholoog). Counselling sessions can be covered by health insurance. I specialise in working with expats, TCK’s and international students with a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, burnout and life-work balance, cultural adjustment, sexuality and relationship issues, self-esteem issues, personal growth, as well as existential and life-meaning questions. In my work I stress the importance of the body’s knowledge and physical fitness for our well-being. I advise about sports or diet if necessary. Besides my work as a psychologist in private practice, I am also involved as a mental coach for athletes.
Cross-Cultural Experience: I come from a mixed Slovenian – Croatian background. I have studied and lived in the Netherlands and United Kingdom. After having lived in various places, I settled in the Netherlands, which by now became my third ‘home’. I am professionally and personally familiar with the challenges that a move to a different country entails. It can be an overwhelming experience, during which new issues arise and the old ones gain strength. At the same time, it represents an amazing potential for personal growth that can be enhanced by counselling. It is incredibly interesting and fulfilling for me to be able to work with people from various cultural backgrounds.

Clinical Specialties: Trauma, Anxiety, Relationship Issues (individual therapy only), Significant Transitions
Cross-Cultural Experience: I currently work with therapy clients all over the world and work hard to help them understand the normal transitional issues that come with moving abroad and adapting to an entirely new EVERYTHING. I often find that in addition to the transitional issues, clients that seek me out are struggling with long-standing anxiety, relational issues, previous struggles with transitions, or a trauma history that make moving even harder. I also work with strong English speakers who are not expats but are looking for a more western form of psychotherapy in their home country.

Cross-Cultural Experience: I was born and raised in Greece, where I received in parallel both the Greek and Dutch education. This allowed me to experience all aspects of both cultures from the very start of my life and acted as a driving force for eagerly wanting to be among people with different backgrounds, in order to learn and understand those. This was achieved to a large extent during my study years, as I always chose to attend international programs, but also when I myself became an expat when I decided to obtain my degree at Leiden University and move to the Netherlands. Here I worked with expats as a teacher at an International School, as a  psychologist at an Intercultural Mental Health Institution, and now as a psychologist at my own private practice. My background allows me to understand the challenges faced when living abroad, as well as the psychological processes involved when trying to accept and adjust to a new life.

I use an integrative therapeutic approach, combining positive, narrative, humanistic and cognitive behavioural therapies to empower my clients to develop self-confidence and find inner peace and happiness.
Cross-Cultural Experience: I was born and brought up in the former Yugoslavia, and have since lived in the United States, Canada, and the Netherlands, where I am currently based. Having lived in 4 countries and raised multicultural children, I understand the struggles of an expat lifestyle. As a psychologist, I have supported many individuals dealing with transition, including changing careers, moving to a new country, or adjusting to a different culture.

Especializada en el apoyo a expatriados y migrantes de habla hispana -en foma individual y de parejas y familias- también trabajo en la orientación a padres expatriados con énfasis en las particularidades de los hijos TCKs (chicos de tercera cultura).

Cross-Cultural Experience: Trabajo asistiendo pacientes a distancia desde el 2002. Tanto mi propia experiencia (TCK) como la de mi consultorio, sumada a la información que recabo en mis investigaciones (a través de entrevistas a expatriados y migrantes latinoamericanos), me permiten tener una importante perspectiva acerca de los efectos de la vida “fuera del país de origen”. (I grew up as a TCK, worked many years for multinational companies and have more than ten years working with patients with different culture background and living outside their passport country. Also, I am an active researcher of the LatinAmerican expat/migrant community which allows me to help increase awareness on their specific needs.)

Clinical Specialties: As a family, marital and individual therapist  with many years of experience I work with a wide range of relationship and mental health challenges with nationals, expatriates including multicultural couples. To list a few examples: Relationship, Marital & Parenting issues in general and also related to expatriates adaptation to different cultures where family support networks are limited, behavior issues of children and adolescents including bullying and appropriate use of the internet. Other specialties include: Anxiety, Depression, Anger management, eating disorders, Self esteem and emotional difficulties related to the experience of living abroad.
Cross-Cultural Experience: I have lived and worked (in English and Spanish) in Guatemala, Mexico the USA and UK. I have a doctorate in Social Anthropology and a Masters in clinical psychology having pursued the former as a way of  understanding cultural issues better within therapy as well as understanding how people recover when living in situations of conflict. Within the NHS in the UK I was an expert on working with cross cultural issues. I have personal experience of moving country, bi cultural relationship and children (my children have three nationalities! US/UK/Mexican). I also work with more “normal” issues of anxiety and depression, anger management and other emotional difficulties and relationship problems. I have a range of ways of working with people which I draw upon according to the specific issue at hand and also peoples preferences. We can discuss this at an initial meeting which I normally like to set up to ascertain if we are a good fit and you find my style and way of working helpful. It is up to you to decide after an initial meeting whether you chose to continue.
