What is Counselling?
Sometimes changes in life circumstance, the pressures of living in cross cultural environments far from home and familiar places and familiar people can bring to light or exacerbate difficulties with coping or relating to others.
These issues are often linked to our upbringing, relationships and events in our lives and counselling can help us to understand why we do what we do and how to manage that when we face stress or difficult situations.

People who would like counselling to continue beyond their stay can do so through Skype counselling sessions which could be held weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.
