Event: The Emotional Transition of Moving to New York: 2 dates, Oct 14 and 18

Making your move to New York opens up the possibility of many mixed emotions and feeling – some expected, some not!

“Do you feel the struggles and isolation of relocation?”

“Are you feeling homesick, missing all things familiar?”

“Do I actually want to be here, when things feel so challenging?”

Feeling alone in your adjustment is a part of any transition – take this opportunity to explore experiences that are common to all of us, and yet sometimes feel so isolating when going through them.

This small and intimate event is facilitated by Susie Lang, who will offer information about;

  • Emotional and Psychological impact of Relocation
  • Cultural Shock
  • Definitive Loss and Ambiguous Loss

This event is a little different; the focus will be a “hands-on”, interactive experience, where courageous sharing and empathic listening will be the biggest part of the event.

There are 2 events to choose from:

You are welcome to attend either event, please note the morning program is designed to be more available to Mum’s and Dad’s and small children may be in attendance.
