In today's globalized world, where relocation is getting increasingly
common, more and more people readily change their country of residence.
Not least among the popular countries of destination is Russia. There is a
large number of foreigners living and working in Russia. However, the
problems they might experience don’t differ from those of other people. In
fact, what some foreigners need is help from a qualified psychologist. For sure, a therapist who works with foreigners has to understand Russian culture & cross-cultural differences.
Inarguably, adapting to a new country is a stress and crisis itself. It can affect the escalation of personal and interpersonal difficulties. A person who's relocated has to initiate and lead a different lifestyle, start new relationships, get used to a new workplace, etc. But what we all have in common is how separation from our families and friends can affect us. It often leads to the lack of closeness and support, making us feel lonely and depressed. At the same time, the relationships with our beloved ones, new colleagues, people around are rarely perfect. A psychotherapist can help not only in personal difficulties but also in the adaptation process.
Moreover, there are many social barriers one can face in a different society.
Language, law, employment, education, medical care and social services -
dealing with all those things can be challenging, time-consuming and normally requires extra efforts. Being under pressure, we often sleep worse, lose appetite and get problems with sexual desire. Our relationships and emotional well-being suffer as well. That’s why psychological help and support of a therapist may be particularly essential for people trying to adapt to new life conditions.
