About Matteo Preabianca:

I am delighted to have the opportunity to share a glimpse of my journey as a Buddhist counselor, working abroad, while also navigating the unique experience of being a foreigner. My name is Matteo, and I hail from the enchanting land of Italy. Currently, I reside in the United Kingdom, where I have been able to not only immerse myself in a new culture but also enrich my practice and teaching of meditation.

1. A Path of Mindfulness and Compassion: My journey in the field of Buddhist counseling has been deeply rooted in the principles of mindfulness and compassion. Drawing from the teachings of Buddhism, I approach counseling as a means to help individuals find inner peace, resilience, and understanding amidst life's challenges. The core concepts of impermanence, suffering, and interconnectedness have greatly influenced my counseling approach, enabling me to provide holistic guidance to those seeking solace and personal growth.

2. Navigating the Foreign Landscape: Having moved from the picturesque landscapes of Italy to the vibrant tapestry of the UK, I have intimately experienced the challenges and joys of being a foreigner. The journey of adaptation, learning, and integration has given me a unique perspective into the lives of those who also find themselves in unfamiliar territories. This empathy allows me to better connect with my clients who are dealing with the complexities of cultural adjustment, identity shifts, and homesickness.

3. Meditation as a Path to Inner Harmony: A significant aspect of my journey involves the practice and teaching of meditation. Meditation is a transformative tool that I incorporate into both counseling sessions and meditation classes. Through the power of mindfulness and guided introspection, I guide individuals toward a deeper understanding of themselves and their emotions. It's a journey inward that fosters self-awareness, emotional regulation, and a sense of interconnectedness with the world around us.

4. Cultivating a Cross-Cultural Approach: Working as a Buddhist counselor in the UK, while bringing my Italian heritage and insights to the table, has allowed me to create a cross-cultural approach to counseling. This approach recognizes the universal nature of human emotions while acknowledging the unique ways in which different cultures express and process them. By embracing diversity and inclusivity, I aim to create a safe and open space for clients from various backgrounds.

In conclusion, my journey as a Buddhist counselor working abroad has been a fulfilling and enlightening experience. It has provided me with the tools to assist individuals in their pursuit of inner harmony, personal growth, and emotional well-being. Through my understanding of the foreigner's perspective, I am able to offer empathetic support to those navigating the challenges of living in a new culture. My commitment to meditation as a transformative practice further complements my counseling approach, enhancing the journey of self-discovery and emotional healing.

Thank you for your time, and I am open to any questions you may have.
