What is Refugee and Immigration Support?

Moving to a new country such as Canada can come with many challenges. You may have fled your country of origin for reasons of safety or to pursue a “better life”, yet still miss things from back home. Settling into a new way of life can be overwhelming, lonely, or stressful. You don’t have to go through it alone.

Therapy can help you to:

  • Have a safe place to speak about why you left your country of origin, and to process any grief about what you left behind in the immigration process
  • Overcome trauma related to your reasons for leaving such as fear of violence, persecution, or discrimination based on religion, gender, or sexuality
  • Adjust to a new environment or cope with culture shock, as new customs may seem confusing or upsetting to you
  • Discuss cultural issues and differences, so that you can navigate in a new land
  • Cope with racism or discrimination that you may face
  • Manage the anxiety or uncertainty of your immigration status
