Moving to Switzerland is one of those decisions that will have changed many of your beliefs, certainties or hopes about how living abroad works. Perhaps you have lived in other countries before. However, this experience is of limited use to you here in Switzerland. The language barrier, alongside many cultural misunderstandings, create a sense of isolation which weighs heavily on you. Your difficulty with integration here sometimes leads you to ask if you made the right decision for you and your family. Believe me, life in Switzerland can be much more rewarding and enjoyable than you think!
I am fully committed to helping you and your family find more ways to feel settled and fulfilled here in Switzerland. You will not only benefit from my own personal experience as a foreign spouse, but also from my substantial professional background in assisting spouses of expatriates.
A – you are a strong and courageous individual who seeks guided support and encouragement while taking steps to create a more fulfilling life for yourself.
B – you are keen to reclaim your identity and rediscover your ambitions, particularly as a working professional.
C – you crave the support of friendship groups and would like to build a strong social network which could lead to new opportunities.
Trained at the Co-Active Training Institute, the Co-Active® Coaching method I use is based on a solid coach-client relationship and begins with the exploration of oneself, which then instigates transformative learning and change. The Co-Active® coach training pathway is considered to be the most rigorous, ICF (International Coaching Federation) accredited programme available for professional coaching development.
I will gradually guide you toward finding more clarity on what you want from life and in your working profession while giving you time and space to focus on what is truly important to you. You will receive unbiased feedback as well as ongoing accountability for the goals we set together on your personal journey.
