Coaching for expatriate women
Are you lucky enough to be an expatriate?
And yet, you find it difficult to adapt to your new expat life?
Even if you are happy about this opportunity, you are struggling to find a new balance in your host country.
And it is pretty normal as becoming an expatriate is a massive transition which shakes up the life you used to know and requires you to create a new one and it is not obvious!
Are you looking for support in this transition?
Expatriation is a roller coaster!
Expatriation is a great opportunity to live a completely different life.
It is a great adventure full of new discoveries, encounters and travels.
At the same time, it is a big challenge as we lose our bearings, are far from our friends and family and need to totally reinvent our way of life.
It can create an imbalance with a lot of mixed feelings and conflicting thoughts.
Suddenly, existential questions arise out of nowhere and question us deeply about our values, our needs and our skills. In addition, being an expatriate is never an escape from our previous life because all our past and our "luggage" remain with us!
And often it is difficult to discuss our doubts and difficulties with our loved ones because they do not understand why we cannot just enjoy this opportunity to live the expat life. We cannot blame them and yet we can feel disconnected and isolated.
Being an expatriate is a massive transition.
It is a roller coaster with exhilarating highs and depressing lows.
It takes time and support to regain balance.
If you are looking to regain balance in your new life
and define what YOU want to realise during your expatriation,

The following sessions will help you define what you want to accomplish during this expatriation and put the actions in place to get there.

My expatriation challenges and opportunities!
I was an expatriate for 4 years and although expatriation has been the most exciting years of my life, it was also the toughest ones.
Here are some of the challenges I had to face;
- Defining my new role as "trailing spouse"
- Not losing my identity and self-confidence not having a job
- Redefine some projets for myself
- Not feeling guilty enjoying this new life while my husband was working
- Manage my time and energy so I didn't feel useless or all over the place
It took me a long time to create a new balance for myself and my family.
But being an expatriate was also the perfect time to rediscover myself, my needs, my values and to reinvent my future!
My expatriation allowed me to retrain as a life and career coach and I am so grateful to have seized this opportunity!
As challenging as expatriation can be, it is a unique opportunity to reinvent yourself!
I wanted to write an article on expatriation for a long time. An article on the challenges and opportunities of expatriation. And to be very honest, more specifically on the unrecognised or undervalued role of the expatriate woman, the so-called “trailing spouse”… But...
This online event dedicated to expat women is a perfect occasion for you to reflect on your expat life, to take a step back from your current challenges and to turn them into strengths and opportunities.
During 3 days, we will explore 3 different topics;
Day 1: How can you best manage the changes and uncertainties of this new life?
Day 2: How can you define what you want and shape your new role in this new context?
Day 3: How can you dare to explore and build your own support network?
The ultimate goal of those 3 days is to provide you with the essential keys to a successful expatriation!
How about taking advantage of your expatriation to reinvent yourself?
Certified professional coach, accredited by the International Coaching Federation, I support women in their life and career choices.
I focus on transition coaching, having been through many transitions myself; burnout, professional retraining during my expatriation and return to my country of origin.
I accompany women who are at a crossroads, who are wondering what the next step is or who feel a loss of meaning in their life to (re)discover themselves, prioritise themselves and make choices more in line with who they are.
I include in my support individual coaching and group coaching during collective sessions with other women around the world.
