A vital function of every community, whether it be international schools, sports clubs or camps is to protect its most vulnerable members — its children.
Stephanie Johnson Counsellor • Safeguarding Consultant • Transition Coach
I am a clinical social worker with over 20 years of experience working in international communities around the world.
I specialise in the issues facing expats and their families, child protection and cross cultural integration.
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) in the State of Massachusetts (USA) and have a European Certificate for Psychotherapy (ECP).
I am passionate about developing systems and connections that help internationals adjust, feel safe and thrive.
Living overseas can be an exciting and fulfilling experience. But it can also be lonely, stressful and uncertain. In my experience as an expat, when it’s good, it’s great.
A driving force in my desire to live overseas is my lifelong fascination with cultural differences.
One of the best ways to reflect upon your experience as an expat is to explore and process it with other people who understand what it is like.
