Workshops & Talks

As much as I love my online counselling work, from time to time it’s great to put on some shoes, leave the house and work with a group of people IRL. I especially love talking about the benefits of online counselling and, more broadly, about mental health for expats, migrants and digital nomads. These are some of the workshops and talks I deliver.

Mental Health Toolbox for Internationals

Moving countries increases the risk of depression, anxiety and mental health issues. It is inherently stressful when all aspects of a person’s life are in a state of change. They face a unique set of challenges, and need specific solutions which often fall outside the experience and expertise of EAP service providers.

This workshop is for any organization employing international talent or recent migrants. It gives an overview of mental health facts, the specific challenges the globally mobile face and introduces tools to manage their mental health, ranging from mindfulness to community to handling negative thoughts and feelings.

This workshop was first developed and presented in New Zealand in collaboration with Mobile Relocation Ltd.

Duration: 90-120 minutes.

Is online the future of counselling for the globally mobile?

An ever-increasing number of individuals in our world are living globally-mobile lifestyles and are in need of location independent services that can be accessed from anywhere in the world. In order to meet this need, many mental health professionals are harnessing the power of technology to take their own therapy and counselling services online. Online therapy may offer benefits for certain types of clients but is not necessarily for everyone. Two location independent counsellors working online with digital nomads, expats and other globally mobile clients will share their unique perspectives and experience of providing online counselling for the globally mobile.

This talk was first presented at the FIGT2019 conference with Vivian Chiona from Expatnest
