Since I first started this blog in 2017 it has been my mission to support women living abroad. Women who, like me, feel living abroad is an immense privilege, but also a struggle at times.
It’s not just the practical stuff like sorting visas or packing boxes. The bigger life stuff, too. When you don’t know how to get where you want in life, or even what you want in the first place.
Through expat coaching it is my goal to help you create a happy, fulfilled life abroad.
It is my mission to help you create your own happy, fulfilled life abroad.
Life abroad is a unique experience. We all face different highs and lows. With this in mind, the coaching I offer is personally tailored to you, the individual.
What is expat coaching?
The expat coaching that I offer is designed with women living abroad, or considering a move abroad in mind.
However, ‘expat’ is a narrow term, right? Whether you’re a remote worker, accompanying spouse, third culture kid, immigrant or anything in between, I’d love to help you in your journey.
Coaching is not mentoring. I won’t tell you what to do, or what not to do. I’ll listen, support, encourage and also hold you accountable so you can find your own way forward.
Coaching is not therapy. I focus not on the past, but the future. Together we look at what’s going on in the present and create goals for a brighter future. I’m not here to heal psychological trauma; I work on the premise that you’re generally well in terms of your mental health.
Expat coaching can be especially beneficial for anyone experiencing significant life changes, or seeking change in their life. Some of these transitions might include:
- Moving abroad for the first time
- Moving to a new country
- Returning to your native country
- Shifting to remote work abroad
- Starting a business abroad
- Reinventing yourself as an accompanying spouse

How does expat coaching work?
My sessions are run in strict confidentiality, through Zoom. Our conversations are a safe space for you to explore your thoughts and emotions.
Normally I recommend 60-minute sessions, every other week, for a minimum of three months. However it depends on your personal needs and preferences.
Depending on your personal needs, we’ll either work on a specific goal, or explore issues together. Generally this means clarifying your goals or intentions, identifying any obstacles or assumptions blocking your path, then we’ll design an actionable plan to get to where you want to be.
While the space will be friendly, I’m not here as your friend, but as your coach. When appropriate, and with your permission, I’ll ask challenging questions and hold you accountable, so you can move forward.
I’ve lived in 10 countries. I’ve moved solo for work opportunities and as an accompanying spouse with my husband, to the Alpine vistas of Switzerland, and the buzzing capital of Angola.
At times I’ve felt stuck, unsure of where I was going in my life and rather anxious about it all. Through my writing I began to investigate this more, and went on to develop a unique coaching method.
I trained in Leadership Principles with Harvard Business School and I’m currently completing my accreditation with the International Coaching Federation, the gold standard of life coaching worldwide.
