In some cases, people live abroad for longer periods of time. If psychological problems occur during that period, it is not always possible or preferable to wait until the return to the home country. In those cases, the mother tongue is to be preferred for obvious reasons. If the native language is not an option, the second language is the next best choice.
If that language is English, or if English is your mother tongue, you are welcome to consult me in my practice for psychoanalysis and psychotherapy here in Ghent. If you have any doubts or questions about this matter, we can discuss it during the first sessions in order to determine which language would allow you to speak as freely as possible.
