Paola – Ghana
I got in touch with Barbara when I was going through a difficult house move abroad and this, compounded with family issues abroad, had put me in a state of extreme stress. I was feeling hopeless and helpless. I felt I could no longer function normally: I had lost my bearings and desperately wanted to find my ‘old’ cheerful and optimistic self. I also wanted to be able to establish a routine in my new home, and this seemed to be beyond my reach.
To me it was important to find a counsellor who was experienced in dealing with expat problems: someone who would understand my difficulties and be empathetic. I also wanted someone far removed from my circle of friends and acquaintances in my host country: I felt I would be able to open up more freely.
I had 12 sessions with Barbara, and found every one useful. Throughout the period, she was cheerful and professional. She accompanied me, listened to me, kept me on track, and helped me find the solutions to my anxieties within myself. I now feel much better able to calmly deal with what life throws at me. I have found the stability and routine I was looking for, and my life is beginning to feel ‘normal’ again.
I highly recommend Barbara, and i will miss our sessions together!
