And welcome to the group coaching programme that will show you how to navigate to a successful career in a foreign country and help you uncover what you need to know (mostly about yourself but not only) to get there.

8 group coaching sessions + 2 1:1 coaching sessions + 2 joint follow-up sessions + buddy system

The programme is divided into 2 main parts: first, a series of more intensive sessions over a c. 3-months period; then, a 6-months follow-up period based on a buddy system. 

This programme is for you:

  •  If you are, want to become, or still want to be professionally active
  •  If you are or have been an expat - someone living outside your ‘home’ country, whether you went for work, study, love or other reason (this includes spouses & partners, graduate students, diplomats, job seekers, and professionals at international companies/organisations);
  • When you are feeling lost about what to do next in your career, overwhelmed or frustrated (when it’s all harder then you thought);
  • When you are in search of clarity around new career perspectives/options;
  • When you would like to get a step-by-step strategy to get to the next level of your career;
  • If you would like to exchange experiences with other internationally-minded professionals and expats who are also going through career challenges;
  • If you would welcome some professional support from an experienced expat coach.

This programme is appropriate both for those in the beginning or middle of their careers, as well as for those getting to the end of their careers and wanting to plan what comes next. No previous technical knowledge or coaching experience is required. Just the commitment to show up! :)

Why work with me


Very simply, I have both the professional expertise and the life experience needed to know what I am talking about.


With more than 20 years’ experience across different countries and sectors, I combine tools from Positive Psychology, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Career Design, Neurosciences and Coaching to create tailor-made coaching paths for open-minded internationals – including expats and their partners, executives and anyone looking for professional and/or personal development.


This group coaching programme builds on all that, as well as the feedback and interaction with my clients; learning what worries them the most but also what offers them the greatest sense of confidence and satisfaction.
