Reentry Coaching

peace of mind reentry

Returning home after several years abroad often requires you to relearn forgotten cultural codes.

When you return, do you feel like you’ve lost your marks?

You feel like a stranger in your own country?

This is for you if…

*FORCED* For family, personal or professional reasons, you have no other choice but to return? But you don’t want to live this return as a failure.

*CHOSEN* You think it’s time to return, or you want to reconnect with your loved ones? And you want to live this return as smoothly as possible.

*ALREADY HOME* You have returned home and you feel like a stranger in your own country. You try to live it as a new expatriation, but it feels stuck.


Coming back home after a period of living abroad is an important decision, sometimes even an imposed one. 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 yourself to return home with peace of mind? Preparation is the key to a successful transition.

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


Saying goodbye to the country, the friends who have built you up for so many years, managing logistics, looking for a new job, can be very 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 upon return home?

Coaching can help you manage the transition effectively, while preserving your physical and mental well-being, and help you identify your ecosystem and the elements that are essential to your successful reintegration. A relevant and adapted coaching process with tools and keys to success to ensure a successful and serene cultural transition.

Whether you are evaluating the possibility of returning and are looking for support before the move, or you have already returned home and feel like a stranger in your own country, a transition coach who has been there before can help you through all the steps of this transition.

Client love

What I appreciated the most in the accompaniment with Claire is her sincerity, her way of summarizing my comments without appropriating them, her approach to my problems without judgment and by bringing ways of thinking. Thanks to the sessions with Claire, I have more self-confidence which allows me to assert myself and make my opinions heard.
Claire is very open-minded and her international experience means that she knows how it feels. I would recommend Claire’s services to expats returning to their home countries, and to anyone with an international career.
A big thank you Claire, really.

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.
