When you’re living abroad and struggling with personal or emotional challenges, you need to talk to someone who speaks your own language — both literally and figuratively!
While many people prefer to meet with a counselor in-person, I know that it can be difficult to find an English-speaking counselor in some areas of the world.
If you have been having a hard time finding a local English-speaking counselor — or if you just prefer the flexibility of meeting in the privacy of your home — I would be happy to work with you remotely.
While I offer in-person counseling and psychotherapy from my office in Lyon, I also provide distance (online) counseling to English-speakers living elsewhere in France or in other parts of the world.
I specialize in working with expats, international students, and others living outside of their countries of origin who are struggling with emotional or psychological difficulties. These difficulties may be related to the challenge of adjusting to life abroad, navigating the complexities of intercultural relationships, or growing up as a third culture kid. They may also be difficulties with depression, anxiety, problems in relationships, unresolved trauma or grief, or other personal challenges. To learn more about who I work with, see here.
Distance counseling can also be combined with in-person counseling. For example, if you live in the Lyon area but frequently travel for work, or if you wish to continue meeting during an extended holiday, we can maintain the momentum in our work through remote sessions until you’re able to come back in person.
How Does Distance (Online) Counseling Work?
Distance counseling means that we can meet remotely, using an online video platform.
You do need to ensure that you have a decent internet connection and a computer or other device equipped with working a camera and microphone.
Otherwise, distance counseling is a lot like in-person counseling. To learn more about counseling and psychotherapy more generally, click here.
I look forward to hearing from you!
