Counseling and Psychotherapy Vienna for Expats

I am a qualified and accredited Gestalt Psychotherapist and Counsellor. In my private practice in Vienna I work with individual adults on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. Coming from Georgia I am an expat myself and I know how it feels to get adjusted to a new city like Vienna. Over the years working with expats has become a big part of my work as a therapist and counsellor. I enjoy working with people from different parts of the world to help them find their place in a new city- and inside themselves.

If you haven`t had psychotherapy or counseling sessions before and you are not sure how this works, let me guide you through all your questions in the FAQ`s section or feel free to give me a call.

I offer consultations in three different practices. That gives you the chance to choose which practice is the easiest for you to reach:

Psychotherapie 1060 Mariahilf

Psychotherapie 1070 Neubau

Psychotherapie 1210 Floridsdorf

 

Counseling for Expats

As I have been travelling and working in different countries myself I know that the life of an expat can sometimes be challenging. In my counseling and psychotherapy practice I have been working with expats for a long time and experienced that many of my clients are suffering from diverse issues. Do you see yourself in one of them below?

  • You suffer from loneliness and separation as you are far away from family and friends.

  • It is hard for you to find a welcoming and helping community in Vienna.

  • Exploring the Austrian culture and mentality is not just exciting and fun but can be exhausting as it is so different from your own.

  • Being treated differently by local authorities as an expat gives you the feeling that you don’t quite belong here.

  • The personal problems and thoughts you were able to repress in the past back home are coming on the surface as you are outside of your comfort zone and start to feel depressed, sad and insecure.

  • You understand that leaving your home country had a lot to do with you sort yourself and your life out and to make a significant change.

  • Looking for psychotherapy or counselling was crossing your mind before but you kept postponing it because you thought you can deal with all that on your own as you always did.

Facing all those problems listed above can be overwhelming and hard to deal with and in the same way it can be a real chance for a change in your life. Looking for help is the first courageous step. I want to help you to regain your capabilities and self healing forces to create the conditions of a happy and self-determined life.

Let`s work on profound and lasting changes with psychotherapy and counselling.

Vienna, the city of my therapy
and counselling practice 

Over the years Vienna with its growing economy, remarkable history and culture became a city of interest for many people. Vienna has also been called the most livable city in the world for the ninth time in a row by Mercer, a well known consulting firm. The political, social and economic climate as well as medical care, education, air quality restaurants, theaters, sports facilities and the big number of green areas in the city are just a few of the many reasons why Vienna became a very fast growing city.

Not only tourists get attracted to Austria`s capital but also expats from all over the world who want to start over and begin a new chapter of their lives by working and living there. It makes me very happy to see that Vienna is becoming a melting pot for many different cultures, languages and mentalities. I am a big Vienna fan and very thankful to be able to live and work in a great and adventurous city like this. I am located in different parts of Vienna to make it easy for you to reach my psychotherapy and counselling practice.
