Expatriates, Immigrants, Adult Third Culture Kids, Boarding School Survivors
Living away from home can feel lonely even if you have chosen to move for work, love, self discovery or adventure.
Growing up in a different culture to your parents' country of origin, studying at boarding school and even going to university are crucial influences on ability to connect, express emotions and feel whole and valuable. You might be realising the effects of growing up as a Third Culture Kid, or you may be grappling with committing to living in your spouse's culture and/or bringing up children in a different lifestyle to your own childhood. Navigating these challenges can lead to feeling disconnected and split from oneself and confused about the future. Our work is to heal the disconnection, to build resilience and develop strength from the challenges you face.
I would love the opportunity to work with you to figure out what makes you feel fulfilled and gives you purpose, and how you can have more of that. I listen to your story, ask questions and work to understand what life means for you. My approach is influenced by true radical empathy, RIE, solution focus and dialectical behaviour techniques (DBT).
I work in person and online, which gives me flexibility and availability. You are welcome to book a 15 minute initial online video meeting so we can speak and see if the way that I work suits you. If scheduling or style doesn't quite fit, I am always happy to make helpful recommendations. My website can tell you more: www.tamaramhowell.com
