Expats, Repats & Third Culture Kids
Welcome to Transitions Therapy International’s psychotherapy, counselling, coaching and consulting website. Transitions understands acclimatizing to a new culture and trying to cope with new obstacles, can feel overwhelming. This can lead to feelings of frustration, anxiety or low mood. You may develop feelings of isolation when realizing your usual support networks are thousands of miles away. Repatriation can be an equally distressing time, which is often overlooked or dismissed.
