Who will support you?
My name is Isabelle and I specialise in helping expatriates find their feet, both professionally and socially.
I know what you are going through. You are not alone! You will be supported by someone who fully understands the challenges of living in a new country.
I have worked and lived in France, Sweden and the German-speaking part of Switzerland during the last 20 years.
Having been a “trailing spouse” myself who followed her husband to Basel with our son who was 2 years old at the time, I am well aware of the courage and determination needed to adapt to a different culture, as well as the fears and doubts you may encounter along the way.
Since our relocation in 2006, I have worked in both large companies and small Swiss SMEs. I also run my own small business and can share my expertise with you. Above all, I have had the privilege of supporting numerous spouses in their quest to find a meaningful life in Switzerland.
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
We all experience difficult moments in life – how you deal with them is what makes all the difference.
I too have experienced ups and downs as I moved from permanent employment contracts to temporary work positions and even periods of unemployment. I also experienced the excitement of running my own business, with all the freedom and creativity, as well as loneliness and endurance that this requires. I have fought to learn a new language and have had times when I have struggled with illness.
Most importantly, I have always used my inner resources to bounce back – and here I stand today, happier and stronger than ever before!!
We will get there together!
I am fully dedicated to your self-development because I enjoy helping people with similar challenges to the ones I had. I believe in your innate ability to find and implement these important changes which YOU personally want to create in your life.
Change is not an easy path, but having the courage and tenacity to pursue it will lead to powerful transformation and results! I will inspire you to push beyond your comfort zone and reach the life you want to lead.
