The Emotional Transition of Moving to New York, Oct 4 & 22

You’ve moved to New York and are feeling a roller coaster of emotions: one minute you’re loving it, the next minute you are feeling isolated and questioning why you came here in the first place. You’re living in New York, shouldn’t you be loving every second of this dream experience? People will surely laugh if you tell them you’re finding it difficult!

It may help to know that this a completely normal part of adjusting to life in a new country. Join Susie Lang, licensed Mental Health Counsellor, in this hands-on workshop to explore the emotional transition of moving to New York.

  • Emotional and psychological impact of relocation

Previous Emotional Transition of Moving to New York Workshops

Susie has facilitated this workshop previously for AWNY, and her warmth, professional expertise and personal experience have been very well received.

Attendees have included women at various stages of their transition to New York – from 2 weeks to several years! It demonstrates the importance for Australian women to receive support as the adjust to life in New York and for the opportunity to share their experiences with an empathetic group.

The previous overwhelming popularity and positive feedback from this workshop has been instrumental in hosting this workshop once again.
