Getting out of your comfort zone

This is for you if…

*DREAM* You are thinking about leaving your home country and need a little help to decide if it’s right for you and get started?

*PLAN* You have just accepted an expatriation assignment and need help to manage the key phases of relocation, and to prepare yourself and your family to thrive in this new culture?

*ACTION* You have recently moved abroad and need support to anticipate and manage the adaptation to a new country and culture?


Moving abroad, uprooting yourself, is a decision rarely taken lightly. What are the questions you need to consider? Have you identified and prioritized the most important choices you need to make? How can you prepare for life in your new country? Preparation is the key to a successful transition for travelers.

Coaching can help you see things more clearly and prioritize the essentials. You can evaluate the biggest decisions of your life with a seasoned expatriate who has extensive experience in the field.


Saying goodbye, managing logistics, starting a new job abroad, can be exhausting. While the decision phase can be difficult, and the pre- and post-move period has its own challenges, it is the transition or settling-in phase that is the most crucial. How to create a stable ecosystem in the host country?

Coaching can help to effectively manage the move, while maintaining physical and mental well-being. A relevant and adapted coaching process with tools and keys to success to ensure a successful and serene cultural transition.

Client love

Claire helped me to become more confident, more mindful, and more self-aware. By doing the exercises and introspective questioning, I’ve begun to understand myself more which helped me to accept and like myself more!
With this coaching, I was hoping to get more confidence and I did! 10000%. Claire helped me to realize some things about myself that I would never have known without her careful and thoughtful questions. I learned how to set more manageable goals, learned why I think the way I do, based on my values, how to deal with family problems, and how to take care of myself and like myself more.
I didn’t think I’d like myself more willingly. Instead of being angry at myself for why I acted or thought certain ways, through sessions with Claire I learned that I have unique values that really shape who I am at this time in my life and that helped me to feel more empowered rather than frustrated. I also set some smaller goals that before I had tried and failed at but actually succeeded this time!

What does the coach do by the way?

The coach asks probing questions to bring out your unique abilities, helps you create a vision and plan for the future, and accompanies you through the implementation of career changes and life transitions.

The coach holds you accountable for what you say you will do, pushes you to do more than you would do on your own, and helps you overcome limiting beliefs that prevent you from reaching your goal.

What's the difference between therapy & coaching ?

First of all, in therapy, we talk about the patient, while in coaching we talk about the client.

The therapist focuses on the link between the past and the present in an attempt to answer the question why.

The coach focuses on the link between the present and the near future of the client and tries to answer the how question. To do this, the coach will co-construct an action plan with the client and put in place strategies that will allow the client to reach his or her clearly defined goal.

Is the certification important?

Yes, it is! Make sure your coach is certified. Today, many people who call themselves coaches have no formal training. A professional coaching certification in France takes an average of 8-10 months, requires a written dissertation, and follows a technical and practical training to adopt a neutral and caring coaching posture.

Many have added the word "coach" to their title in the hopes of jumping on the bandwagon, without respecting or even knowing the ethical code of our profession. Make sure that your potential coach has completed a state-recognized coaching course and is accredited by the ICF, EMCC or SFAPEC.

What are the payment methods ?

I currently accept payments by bank transfer in Euros or in local currency via Paypal.
