James Bailey and Paul Morris started Presentlife.com to provide counselling support for English speaking expatriates who are looking for someone to talk to about the difficulties they are facing. They both trained in counselling and psychotherapy at the London Gestalt Centre and have both worked in the corporate world.
Expatriate life can be an exciting and rewarding experience both professionally and personally. The process of adapting to a new and often strange environment can present challenges to expatriates and their families. Often families and individuals have to create new lives for themselves without the support of close family and good friends. When going through a difficult patch in a new country one can feel daunted and isolated, often by things that would normally seem manageable.
Present Life offers a counselling service via Skype for clients who may find it difficult to access suitable counsellors in their location.
