TERE (303 x 500)Vivian Chiona, psychologist and founder of online counselling services Expat Nest, recently picked up a copy of Linda A Janssen’s The Emotionally Resilient Expat: Engage, Adapt and Thrive Across Cultures (Summertime Publishing, 2013). She had this to say about the book:

“This is … a comprehensive guide on how to develop emotional resilience as an expat. … [Emotional resilience] is a topic close to my heart and one that is not widely acknowledged or discussed among expats. Yet it is key to understanding and overcoming many an expat challenge.” (See Vivian’s “5 tips to feeling happier in a new place” or “Dealing with losing love as an expat” for more advice on developing emotional resilience). 

Vivian particularly enjoyed the inclusion of expat voices throughout the book, which “inspire a real sense of empathy and recognition”.

Vivian is a psychologist who saw the need for specialised counselling for expats. As a result she created Expat Nest, which offers online counselling to expats (all you need is access to Skype, Facetime or a telephone). For more info on Expat Nest, click here.
