"As a an Expat Coach I am deeply committed to guiding international mamas across the GLOBE so that
they can reach their full POTENTIAL as individuals and
within their families."
Often there is relief within that first session alone. Simply having awareness of WHY we’re feeling so overwhelmed can be incredibly cathartic. I help my clients put words to the emotional chaos they’re going through, which in turn renews that sense of personal STRENGTH and the truth that they’re not as out of control of their lives as they think they are. With the clients I’ve worked with, it’s incredible to watch those light-bulb moments happen; the result is that they feel lighter, more in control, aware… and taking back RESPONSIBILITY for their lives and what they want to CREATE next.
When I first start working with someone who is struggling, I emphasize the importance of strengthening the internal self – our self-care, thought awareness, honoring our needs, passions and desires – as an essential step in building a life and a relationship.
Otherwise, it’s easy to get caught up in the belief that if we just make sure everything around us okay, then we’ll be fine. That's not how it works. It’s never about the external parameters … it's always what’s going on inside.
I love doing thought-coaching and mindset work, but my clients have to come to the table knowing that their old way of thinking is going to be challenged. If they’re not at all open to that, the coaching partnership won’t work. For those individuals who genuinely want to CHANGE and are willing to explore a new perspective, it’s incredibly inspiring to watch them take responsibility for their lives and their emotions and uncover the POWER they have to create the lives they truly want.
My coaching is extremely tailored to each client and starts with a deep coaching conversation to uncover what the person truly wants. From there I craft a coaching journey that will meet their specific NEEDS and GOALS. Sometimes our coaching lasts two or three months, sometimes six, sometimes longer. There is no one-size-fits-all when working with me, which is why I always like to start with a conversation. I coach over the phone and Skype, so there are no geographic limits.
What I expect from my clients is a WILLINGNESS to show up authentically and honestly – to be curious, compassionate and vulnerable, to be open to change, challenge, discomfort and creativity.
To be willing to step into their true, authentic LIGHT.
When you are clear you can go from:
Here’s what we will do together:
Have you been stuck in the “in between” zone for too long? Where it’s safe, yet not too challenging? If someone asks you,”are you happy?”, you might say, “I’m not unhappy”. Have you been scared to make a change, but might be ready to face it and get moving again?
Most of us are so consumed with our daily lives, career, finances, spouses, taking care of kids, our home, our health, etc.
With all of this going on how do we break out of our cyclical patterns and step into a life where we leap out of bed every morning? It’s simple. TIME. We need to dedicate the time to figuring out the “I don’t know” to get to the ‘I know!”
That’s where I come in. I take clients from the “I don’t know “phase into the “I know that’s where I’m going” with clarity and confidence.
I offer coaching on an individual basis and if you want to get together with friends or peers in a group coach program, we can organize this too.
It doesn't matter where you live !!
