Anna Patience Psychology: online psychological support for expats

Does living abroad feel like a struggle? Does it feel like you are unable to have the experiences you would like? Are you trying to cope with low mood, heightened worry and anxiety, stress, loneliness, loss or any other sense of dissatisfaction, and that this is impacting on your day-to-day life?

Anna is a Registered Psychologist who has been working with adults for ten years. Her approach is based in acceptance, compassion, and mindfulness skills. She aims to help you bring confidence, wisdom and care to the difficult things that show up, so that you can do more of what matters most to you at this point in your life.

Skype and phone-based therapy for expats is becoming a more and more popular mode of offering support to individuals.  This format provides individuals with greater flexibility for scheduling appointments, ease of access, and saves travel time, while retaining the important elements that people want from therapy; feeling heard, respected, understood and able to make change.

An expat herself, Anna is from New Zealand and practices both online as well as face-to-face therapy. For more information and for contact info, please visit her website.
