What are my options for therapy while I am traveling and in the midst of a move to a different part of the world, with a lot more travel on the horizon?

I think it's time for me to go to therapy. After struggling with anxiety for most of my adult life and recently realizing that my anxiety is having a pretty big negative impact on my relationship with my SO it's pretty clear to me that I need some help dealing with things.
The issue is that I am bouncing around between locations at the moment. As I type this I am in a major city in North America and I will be here for the next week or so. I have access to my GP, constant access to the internet and some time to do research and figure things out. In a week or so when I move on I will be in a foreign country where I don't have a family doctor and my time/resources will be limited relative to where I am now. How do I get the help that I need?
I have tried working through a few different workbooks (Feeling Good among them) and I've also tried MoodGym and e-couch. None of these things worked well for me. I find talk therapy to be the most helpful. Talking with others really helps me work through my problems and having someone to ask questions and provide an opinion makes a big difference for me. I don't really know what the therapy situation is in my new home country but even if there are therapists available/accepting patients, I will be traveling a lot as part of my new position. I am afraid I am overlooking an option (like a more interactive version of MoodGym or something) and I don't really know where to find the help that I need.
Where can I go to find the help I need and what do you recommend given the circumstances?
