Cross Cultural Therapy

Cross Cultural Therapy

Cross cultural therapy is the process of studying mental processes and human behaviour in diverse cultural circumstances. People from different cultures don't only have different languages, but also behaviours and cross cultural therapy was developed for that reason.

Cross cultural therapy is ideal for people who find themselves surrounded by people of a different culture, who have different beliefs and don't express themselves in the same way. When faced with emotional issues, an immigrant may find it hard to be understood by native practitioners. However, more and more therapists are answering this need by offering cross-cultural therapy to their services.

Every individual is important and you deserve the help you need. Don't hesitate to seek help if you feel lonely, sad, or depressed.

If you are looking for a therapist who offers cross-cultural therapy, please browse our list of practitioners below..
