Expat - to be happy in a foreign country
To be an expat in The Netherlands, or anywhere else, means accepting a new culture and a different set of values. That sounds easy, but in reality it can be quite an exhausting experience. Being an expat is a life adventure, but not always an easy one. It is a demanding lifestyle and it is therefore very important to get advice or counseling when needed.
What are some expat problems?
• repatriate adjustment
Even though you as an expat spouse may be a highly educated woman, in your new home, you are probably not allowed to have a job. This limitation can strip you of an important source of social contact, identity, and self-worth, especially when friends and family are far away. This contrasts sharply with the days of your husband, which are structured by his job, and the days of your kids, which are structured by school. The best way to describe this is probably; you feel that your life has come to a standstill.
It is crucial that your child soaks up as much of the other culture as possible, even if you, as a parent do not like some of the aspects. However, most children with adaptation difficulties, do not feel secure enough to explore the world. It can be helpful to your child to plan a few sessions at Psycholoog Den Bosch to help him/her feel more confident even in other culture. I can also offer you, the expat parent, practical tools and clear instructions for improvement.
Treatment at Psychologist Den Bosch
As I strongly work from intuition I am able to identify issues quickly. At Psycholoog Den Bosch I also treat problems that are not directly related to the expat status, such as anxiety disorders, grief and loss, stress and burnout, psychotrauma (PTSD), depression, eating disorders, problems with being gifted and highly-sensitive, obsessive compulsive behaviour etc. I also guide people with relationship problems in couples therapy.
