Life and work in particular can be complicated. This is particularly true when you are an expat, as not only can you be confronted by “regular” issues in life like anxieties and the feeling of shortcomings in your professional or private life, but there are also issues related to living in a foreign country. These issues include being homesick or a feeling of not belonging either here or at home, loneliness, missing people and places, and difficulties in dealing with the changes required when living elsewhere such as socially integrating.
The combination of the regular anxieties and those specially related to being an expat can cause stress to build up fast, and to high levels. During the completely confidential sessions*, I will help you to determine what is causing the stress, know how to recognize it in an early stage, and learn how to deal with it in such a way that it does not stop you from feeling and functioning well.
Depending on the topic, we will combine talking with relevant exercises.

How it works:
Life Coaching takes place in periodic sessions. We start off with an intake of 45 minutes, in which we determine what your challenges are and how I can help you to address them.
This is followed by the regular coaching sessions. In the beginning these are close together, but as time progresses you will be more and more able to “do it yourself”, and the time in between sessions will increase. The number of sessions needed varies for each client, and also depends on the issues being addressed.
The Ad Hoc Boost Session is not a regular coaching session, but a 30-minute Skype session that is an extra aid when you have additional questions or anxieties in between regular sessions. It is very common during the development process to feel anxieties about the progress (or perceived lack of it) at certain moments. Often this happens when significant progress has been made at an early stage and then the feeling occurs that progress has stopped. Self-development is not a linear process; it moves in waves, up and down, and then up again. It is completely normal to feel anxious when the wave is not moving up as fast as you expected or got used to. In between regular sessions, the Ad Hoc Boost Session can be the “boost in the right direction” you need.
