Family day out in town? Keep everyone healthy while you’re at it.
1. Counseling Perspective
The cross-cultural confusion of living the expat lifestyle can affect your family’s well-being. Counseling Perspective believes that counselling can make a difference for families who are separated from support systems in their home country. It may act as a way to bridge communication gaps and keep healthy boundaries in check. Counseling Perspective also helps you to stay in touch with your goals, family values and work-life balance.
