Interesting articles about expat life and more

Beside my work as psychologist in Amsterdam I like to write articles for my website and other online magazines like: Iamexpat.nl and Expatshaarlem.nl In this way I can share my experience on living abroad, relationships, sexuality, self-esteem, anxiety and other valuable topics which might be useful for you if you are in a therapy process or if you are simply wondering about them. My wish is that these articles can add insights and a deeper understanding about your life ~ Somesh Valentino Curti
