expat coaching, finding direction, feeling lost

Expat Coaching

If you have moved abroad (alone or accompanied), it is normal to feel overwhelmed sometimes. Leaving your family and friends behind, learning a new language, finding a job in a place where your education may not be recognized, looking for new friends... they are not easy tasks, especially when they come all at once.

I started traveling abroad when I was 17 years old and since then I have lived, worked or studied in more than 12 countries, from the Netherlands, Norway or Germany, to Sudan, Ghana, Egypt or Kenya, until I felt "more or less" settled in my current countries of residence, Mexico and Germany. All of these experiences were wonderful, but not necessarily easy. What they all had in common was the learning and transformation process that I went through in each of them. So, trust me when I tell you that I understand your fears, doubts and your excitement to start your life in your new environment.

What migration hides...
  • It can be an overwhelming, lonely experience, a real emotional roller coaster.

  • Culture shock exists, it is difficult to handle and requires a lot of patience.

  • Building a new support system and finding “your family” takes time and effort.

The main objective of Intercultural Coaching or Expat Coaching is to help you manage the personal transitions and changes that come with living in a foreign country. In addition to providing you with the necessary tools to understand and improve intercultural relationships with people in your new environment, this process will help you see beyond the limits of your own cultural values and beliefs.

Expat coaching is for you if…

  • You feel down and wonder if you made the right decision when migrating to your new destination.

  • You have migrated "for love", but you feel that your partner does not understand how difficult it has been to "leave everything" behind.

  • You don't have a job, you don't feel useful because you don't generate income and develop your career.

  • You feel that you cannot adapt to the new destination, you do not like it and you do not understand why this is happening to you.


Expat coaching will help you...


Adapt and reinvent yourself in your new environment

Coaching provides you with a space of  support and reflection, where you can identify and overcome emotional and cultural barriers. This will help you adapt more effectively to your environment abroad and reinvent yourself in your personal and professional life.


Develop a strong and reliable social network


Coaching helps you increase self-confidence and overcome emotional barriers that may arise when interacting in a new environment, allowing you to establish more enriching and successful social relationships in your life in your new country.

Navigate the migration mourning

Through coaching, you can identify and work on the emotions and challenges associated with migration and its many mournings, allowing you to move forward into a new stage of your life abroad with a more positive and resilient mindset.


Minimize the fear of change and uncertainty

Migration involves a series of changes: geographical, professional, personal... Through my coaching sessions, I will help you develop greater emotional resilience and the ability to adapt with confidence to changing situations, reducing your fears. and facing uncertainty with courage.

Return migration

"y volver, volver, volver..."

(Volver, volver. Vicente Fernández)

Migrating is not easy, but how about returning?

Coming "home" is also associated with mixed feelings, which are not always easy to handle. The joy of being reunited with family members and friends can be clouded by the realization that everything or many things have changed. Furthermore, during the time we have spent abroad our own horizons have broadened, and we have gained new perspectives and points of view, which may not always fit with the old roles and expectations of where we come from.


There are studies that show that returning to the country of origin can be even more traumatic than migrating abroad. Why? Because returning implies the paradox of returning to a place that (in our heads) is still the same as it was 10, 15, 20 years ago, but in reality nothing is the same anymore. When we "go back home" we realize that neither the place nor the people we left behind are the same. It's like going back to a past where everything is different and where we don't know how to fit in anymore.

Does it ring a bell?
