朱妍叡 諮商心理師 Erica Chu (Counseling Psychologist) 

【跨文化諮商 Part I: 英語諮商/English Counseling】

        Here at Realizing Counseling, we also provide psychotherapy in English. We have a counseling psychologist who has personal experiences with cross-cultural transition. Because of these experiences, she is able to work competently and empathetically with clients from diverse backgrounds.  

        Adapting to a foreign culture is not easy. Everything you know and feel familiar with is no longer a reality in the new country. On the surface, you might experience cultural shock and feel disoriented in this new environment. The stress of uplifting your roots and moving to a new place might evoke feelings and emotions that often haunt you from the past. Despite the turmoil, do you still have the desire to survive and thrive? Would you be willing to expand the concept of home and redefine what home means? How do you let home be wherever you are and make new connection in this new place?

        Perhaps it is about your identity, or perhaps it has nothing to do cultural adaptation at all. You simply want to understand what your feelings mean to you and why they are triggered by the new environment. Our professional Counseling Psychologist is here to help you understand what these feelings and experiences mean to you. It is with understanding and support, you may gain new insights into your cross-cultural experiences.

  在知心,我們有可以提供英語諮商服務的心理師。我們的諮商心理師有長期在國外生活的經驗,親身的經驗讓他可以以專業同理的態度,和有多元化背景的個案工作。

  適應一個新的文化不是一件簡單的事情,所有你原本習慣的事物,可能在新文化中,都變得奇怪而且陌生。表面上,你可能經驗到文化衝擊,或是在新環境中感到迷失方向。將自己連根拔起搬到新環境的壓力,更可能引發一些過去一直困擾你的強烈感受。儘管經歷生活生命的動盪,你是否仍感受到自己想要生存下去以及讓自己茁壯的渴望?你是否願意重新定義家對你的意義?純粹讓家成為你所在的地方,並且看看是否能在新的地方找到新的連結,以及你的歸屬。

  或許這和你的自我認同有關,也或許這和文化適應一點關係都沒有,你只是想要了解,這些看似被外在環境引發的感覺是什麼,以及這些感覺對你的意義。我們的專業心理師都可以協助你了解這些經驗、感覺在你生命中的意義為何。或許一些些的提點,一些些的理解,就可以協助你對自己的生命經驗,有新的認識和體會。

註:如果你並不需要英語諮商,但想要討論任何適應的議題,例如:生活突然的變動、職場、學校、婚姻,懷孕、不孕,和自我認同等議題(自我了解、歸屬感、人際互動等)都可以預約。我們會再有專文介紹這個部分。
