Instead of seeing the rug being pulled from under us,

Benefits of coaching for you as a 'trailing' spouse

The Expat Coaches’ aim is to support trailing spouses to get the most out of their time abroad. We want you to benefit fully from the opportunities of the expat life and develop a personal life plan (for yourself and your family).

A regularly focused 45 minutes can really make the difference. We challenge you because we’re convinced it will work for you and we will be more than happy to join you and support you as your own ‘personal navigator’.

People with a coach will take action sooner, have a more balanced life, reach for more, make better decisions and have more energy.

If YOU want to make a change, you can:

  • Find out what your values and needs are
  • Explore your talents
  • Define direction and achieve goals
  • Enjoy the international experience
  • Be prepared to return home or go on a new assignment
  • Set priorities
  • Make a career change
  • Live your dreams
  • Improve self confidence
  • Start a new education
  • Bring more balance in your life

How does it work?

We will call ‘the regularly focused 45 minutes’ coaching sessions. They can be either by telephone or in person. Coaching by telephone, supported by e-mail, is becoming more common. Especially as an expat you can be anywhere on the planet and have your personal coach anywhere else on the planet.

When we start coaching
  • You will set the agenda
  • You will talk about your expectations of the coaching session
  • You will run through your options and decide what your next step(s) will be
  • You get the most out of the coaching relationship
  • We will listen to what you tell us
  • We ask you questions because we’re curious about what you want
  • We ask you questions to clarify what you’re saying
  • We ask thought provoking questions
  • We challenge you and support you in achieving your goals
  • We will help you to be accountable for your next steps
Everything that’s said during the session will be confidential because we work with the Code of Ethics of the International Coach Federation.
