Expatriate Coaching

Many expatriates turn to the help of a coach to help them overcome a transition through a large step in life and relocation is certainly one of the biggest life changes you can expect.

With relocation comes the chance for a fresh start. It allows you to reorientate your life and goals, changing direction and perspective as you put in place new priorities. As your new life unfolds, a range of challenges may present themselves ranging from managing a family and loving relationships from overseas, to coming to grips with local culture. Coaching prepares you for all these challenges and more

Not only are you taught new skills and led towards a fresh perspective, but coaching also guarantees that you’ve set the time aside to handle your transition smoothly. Each hour spent conversing with a coach makes it more likely that you’ll devote more of your time to self-reflection and the best path forward. It keeps you on track with your goals, while motivating you towards success. Expatriate coaching is exactly what you need to develop a clear vision for your trip, and plan of action to reach your goals while aboard.

Another key benefit of coaching is how it helps expats overcome post-arrival blues. There comes a time when the excitement of a new place and the foreign culture wears off, leaving an immense pressure to deliver at home and at work in this new environment. A preoccupied partner who is equally devoted to adjustment can feel distant, and it is quite natural to begin feeling a little homesick. With the support and friendly attention of a coach at your disposal, the feeling of loneliness and disconnected soon clears being realized as opportunity and potential.

I work with expatriates on a regular basis, fully understanding the issues arising from cultural differences and transitioning to a new country. Regardless of whether you need executive coaching or personal coaching for you and your spouse, I work closely with you to guarantee that your relocation is the exciting, rewarding adventure that it is.
