Intercultural consultation is primarily concerned with the difficulties which can sometimes be associated with cross-cultural communication. In the sphere of both intimate relationships and those in our wider social circle, there can be misunderstandings arising from cultural upbringing. Every culture has it’s own rituals, manners and values and adapting to everyday life in a foreign culture or living with a partner from a foreign culture can be deeply unsettling. Sometimes you might feel that despite there being no language barrier that misunderstandings still occur.
With intercultural counselling, you and your partner shall learn a great deal about how your cultural backgrounds have shaped your behaviour and communication with one another.
This will better enable you to detect cultural paradigms and help you to embrace the fact that our behavings are deeply engrained throught cultural behavings and cross-cultural missunderstandings are therefore entirely normal and do not always include a personal insult.
