You don’t need me to tell you that there is a pretty BIG transition when you relocate your life from Australia to New York City. Chances are if you are reading this—you’ve made the move.
And, I know it’s not easy! Particularly when you sprinkle in a global pandemic and border restrictions that have kept you away from friends, family and your home country.
Whatever it is you are dealing with right now as an Aussie living in New York, AWNY is here to open up conversations and support connections in its upcoming event: Emotional Transitions of Moving to New York on Tuesday, on June 22, 2022. This will be an in-person indoors event, with a strict limit of 25 people. Vaccinations will be checked upon entry.
The discussions will be led by AWNY member and licensed Mental Health Counselor, Susie Lang (LMHC & NCC).
During the session, Lang will facilitate conversations about the emotional and psychological impact of relocation, cultural shock, definitive loss and ambiguous loss, homesickness and the emotional impact of uncertain times during Covid-19.
Lang says it’s about: “The community, the conversation, the connection and the hope of healing.”
Date & Time: 6-8pm, Wednesday, June 22, 2022
Where: WeWork, 205 Hudson Street, New York, NY 10013
Registration: Tickets cost $20, register here.
