common questions

Adjustment to life as an expat can come with many challenges including the stress of a completely new environment and feelings of disconnection, low mood and uncertainty about the future. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is recognized worldwide as one of the most effective therapy for the treatment of psychological disorders including anxiety and depression. This evidence-based treatment is a form of talking therapy that helps the individual to develop targeted and practical strategies to help better cope with current and on-going difficulties. The treatment is time-limited (usually about 20-25 sessions) with the aim of providing the individual with the skills and support to move forward successfully and independently.  The sessions are tailored to each individual and are conducted with an emphasis on collaboration and compassion.

 

We also offer other types of evidence-based therapies that may supplement CBT including Acceptance and Commitment therapy and mindfulness

 

Before beginning treatment sessions (50 minutes each) individual will attend an assessment session of approximately 1h30min
