Expat program

 Moving to a new country may trigger unexpected changes in our lives and in the way we see ourselves. It can be easy to focus on settling and supporting your family — and lose sight of yourself in the process. Challenge, sacrifice, doubt, frustration, fear, and loneliness can become constant companions. I can help.

I am an experienced coach specialized in training migrants to improve mental, physical and social health and empower mind, body and spirit and consciousness.

As a licensed psychologist and living abroad myself, I know what you need to love your new life and stay in balance! We can meet in the Netherlands, Sint Maarten or online.

Overcome disappointment

When you moved abroad and realise it’s not the picture-perfect lifestyle you imagined.

Dealing with the culture shock

Depending on where you go in the world, you could find yourself feeling out of your depth very quickly. Different languages, religions, customs and social etiquette can be very bewildering.

Dealing with feelings of isolation and homesickness

Being far away from family, friends and everything you know can be very upsetting. Homesickness usually sets in once the paperwork and unpacking has been done, and the novelty of being somewhere different has worn off.

Upset friends and family

Your friends and family back home might not always be supportive of your decision to leave. These people care about you, and it can be difficult to digest the news that someone you care for is willingly leaving you permanently.

Overcome loss of self-identity

It’s difficult to see this normally, but a great part of who we are lies in the things we do in day-to-day life. Routines, like going to work, going to the gym, visiting friends, enjoying our hobbies … these are the things that make up our lives. Without them, it’s not unusual to feel a little lost.
