Moving is one of the hardest transitions that a person can experience as it stimulates a multitude of changes that someone has to cope with, often simultaneously. Moving to a new country only adds to the complexity of the move and to stress levels spiraling out of control. LIFE assists individuals, couples and families to transition successfully to Australia whether it is a temporary move to study or work, or a permanent move to migrate. LIFE can help with providing advice on the practical aspects of moving, such as visas, finding a job, housing, finances, identifying suitable schools, adjusting to student life in Australia, , as well as the more personal aspects of understanding Australian culture, learning English and managing the emotional transition.
