Online expat support group

Online expat support group

Why support group?

 

  • Do you find yourself struggling, feeling stressed or overwhelmed? 
  • Are you experiencing difficulty dealing your emotions in uncertain times? 
  • Are you worried about your loved ones who may be far away?
  • Do you feel lonely or isolated?

 

A support group is a source of learning, inspiring and supporting each other. Living abroad we are faced with struggles, frustrations and limitations. It can be hard to deal with these on your own. Support group can help you feel that you are not alone in this process. You can learn to give and receive support but also discover new ways of coping. 


What to expect?

 

The group meetings will be facilitated by two trained expat psychologists, who will share their knowledge and experience as well as create a safe group situation. We are going to meet online weekly to talk about relevant topics, share psychoeducation and do exercises focused on finding new ways to support yourself.

 

Examples of themes we will cover:

  • loneliness and isolation;
  • anxiety, fear and uncertainty; 
  • anger, irritation and frustration;
  • belonging and identity;
  • cultural adjustment in the time of crisis;
  • other themes that may arise. 

 

Procedure

 

Please send an email to info@inter-being.nl if you are interested in this support group. As soon as you have emailed us, we will arrange a 10-15 minute phone call with you to inform you about the group set-up, talk about your expectations and answer your questions.  


The support group will consist of six 1,5 hour weekly meetings. It is a closed group, which means that once we start no new participants can join. All participants commit to attend all 6 group sessions. The group is low-cost to make it affordable for everyone.
