Having been raised as an expat child and raising two expat children, gives me first hand knowledge of the ups and downs of the global nomad lifestyle. I believe that if families are aware of the potential benefits and pitfalls they can create family cultures that enables each one of the members of their families to reap the benefits and manage the challenges of this lifestyle in order to become wellr ounded, global, flexible, open minded individuals.
Make decisions about relocation
Create deliberate and explicit goals about what their family as a whole, as well as each individual member, wants to obtain from the expat life
Strengthen each individuals sense of belonging to the family
Establish a culture of respect for local culture and diversity, as well as each others individuality
Enable each member to express his or her emotions as well as that of others
Acknowledge and deliberately manage the mobility phases as well as the emotions it surfaces in order to prevent unresolved grief.
I believe individuals are the best suited to come up with options and make the best decisions for themselves. I work with clients in order to help them better understand their true motivations and what is holding them back from overcoming the challenges they are struggling with.
Private coaching can follow one of two tracks. The first, in which we work on achieving the particular goals that each person has established. The second, is one in which we together explore the five aspects that are key in helping build a family culture in which all members come out strengthened by the expat lifestyle.
We offer custom designed courses that provide insights into the potential benefit and challenges of the expat life and the potential impact of their so called third culture kids, as well as activities, tools and rituals that can be established to help create families culture that are more conducive to having each member benefit from the relocation experiences.
I am in my forties, happily married and the mother of two amazing girls. I am the daughter of a multicultural marriage and grew up as an expat kid. We lived in five different countries during my child hood. Guatemala, my birth country, holds a dear place in my heart although it is the place I know the least. In summary, as my husband mockingly describes me, I am a mutt , and as many Third Culture Kids can't really answer the question of where I am from. After a lot of hard work I have been able to overcome the difficulties this lifestyle posed. Given all the progress and studies that have been made about the impact of this lifestyle on each individual, expat parents like myself, can create family environment that help our kids deal with the challenges as they surface and prevent a lot of the unresolved grief and identity crisis it can bring.
