If you are an expat dealing with issues regarding living abroad or if you are in need of a few suggestions on how to coach your children, maybe I can be of help.
As the modern expatriate and his or her family are expected to be flexible, so is my coaching. My aim is to help you with the challenges you, your spouse and your children encounter in a way most suitable to your personal situation and needs. I focus on the emotional struggles you experience when moving or living abroad, but through personal experiences I also know few things about practical issues.
The method I use is based on (Internet-delivered) cognitive behavioral therapy, which means it is "problem focused", where it focuses on the issues you are facing at this moment as a global nomad. It is also "action-oriented", I try to support you in taking action to face your issues and reach your goals.
It is individual, confidential and short term (about 5 sessions and possible follow-up). You will feel listened to, you will get different (cultural) perspectives and you will get positive feedback so you will be inspired and motivated to act.
We will be in contact through e-mail, phone or Skype/Face-time.
I can coach you in Dutch (mother tongue) or English (fluent) and I also speak German.
My coaching is non-profit, meaning that I am doing this to remain active, share my knowledge and also learn from you (the other "global nomads"), while combining it with being a trailing spouse and a stay-at-home mom. Please contact me for more information, to make an on-line appointment or if you have any questions.
