It's Complicated

Find a therapist that can help with Therapy for Expats

Adjusting to life in a new country can bring unique stressors, including cultural differences, language barriers, and feelings of isolation, impacting mental well-being. For expats, finding a therapist abroad who understands these challenges is crucial. Expat therapy is tailored to provide support in navigating the complexities of living away from home. It offers a space to address homesickness, cultural shock, and adaptation strategies, helping expats manage their experiences more effectively. With professional guidance, expats can achieve a smoother transition and foster a more fulfilling life in their new environment.

About It's Complicated

In 2019, two therapists set out to tackle a complicated problem.

The psychiatrist Carl Jung once wrote that, “Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble”. One does not have to be a therapist, though, to realize that life is complicated. But finding the right therapist, who you can build a strong relationship with, shouldn’t have to be. This is the founding principle of It’s Complicated.Since our start, we've helped over 23,000 clients and counting, offering thousands of free crisis support hours, and built thriving therapy communities in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Munich, and Athens.
