Welcome to We are here, too, a podcast on the ebbs and flows of life abroad and how it impacts our mental health.

After almost two decades of living outside my homeland, Italy, and a degree in counselling and psychotherapy, I felt inspired by the many stories of life abroad I connected with.

I hope you can accompany me through a journey of self-discovery whilst highlighting the everyday struggles of those who decided to make a living abroad.

Behind the scenes

We are here, too exists thanks to the support of friends, family and those of you whose testimony of life abroad inspired me. 

A special thanks to Candela and Su San, both part of this community, who showed excitement and appreciation for this project and add their artistic touch to it.

Thank you!
