BENEFITS OF ONLINE COUNSELLING
(for anyone, but specifically for expats, humanitarian workers, and travellers)
STRAIGHT FORWARD TIMEZONE NAVIGATION
Although expats are highly skilled in navigating timezones, the reality is that timezones limit the amount of potential connection time. Being in Amman myself, the time difference will be far easier to navigate than working with a therapist across the ocean. This translates into more possibilities for times that work for both of us and less stress.
SERVICES IN ENGLISH AND FROM A WESTERN PERSPECTIVE FOR THOSE WHO LIVE IN PLACES WHERE IT IS NOT READILY AVAILABLE
I understand this frustration and it is part of the daily life of many expats. Online counselling bridges this gap and makes mental health services available for anyone, anywhere.
The price of attending in-person appointment goes beyond the cost of the appointment itself. You do not need to worry about transportation costs, time wasted in getting to/from appointments, childcare, parking costs, etc. As a result, online counselling is financially more affordable than in-person; all you need is a confidential space and a computer with an internet connection!
SEE SOMEONE WHO CAN PERSONALLY RELATE TO YOUR LIFE ABROAD
Even the best therapist in your home country will not fully understand the dynamics of being an expat in the Middle East. I offer a unique perspective and set of life experiences.
