I'm repatriating soon

The time has come to return “home”. Are you excited? Sad? Both?

I’ll be honest with you: repatriation can be hard. It is the least talked about expat transition because everyone assumes it will be easy to “go home”. After all, you grew up there. 

But – you’ve changed. Home might have changed. Your children may not think of your passport country as their “home” since they have no memory of living there so might struggle. There are many things to consider but it can all be managed. I’ve been through a few repatriations and can help you and your family transition smoothly.

For now, keep reading about what I can offer and explore some of the resources I have collected. Then let’s talk.

coaching for expat Partners & global nomads

Coaching isn’t just for executives, sports stars and business owners. Anyone can benefit from time spent with a coach, reflecting on issues and growing. Read this article for more information on coaching.

I offer coaching specific to expats and expat partners, tailored to your needs, and your unique situation. You can book a few sessions with me or apply to the Adapt & Succeed program which can help with any transition. Whatever you choose, I promise you will benefit from coaching by taking time for yourself and gaining some clarity on where you are and where you want to go. Find more information on coaching options and packages, including pricing, here.

Finding Connection

People need people. Find everything I've written about finding, making and maintaining connections abroad and upon returning.


Sara is preparing for her family’s return to their “home” country after many years abroad. She doesn’t want to go because she has heard how difficult repatriation can be and loathes giving up her expat life.

With the Adapt & Succeed program combined with one:1 coaching Sara can prepare for her repatriation (often neglected by corporate training programs). She can stay connected with friends abroad learn how to adjust again to life in her passport country while processing the grief. She will have the confidence and tools to build connections locally and find purpose back „at home“ while learning how best to manage this difficult transition.
