I'm an expat longing to belong...

I could use a listening ear...

and someone who can gently confront me and help me to find satisfying solutions...

Hi, I'm Annette, expat life coach in Amsterdam. Curious? Feel free to browse!

Moving to another country is a big deal. Aside from all the turmoil of dealing with the paperwork, visas, a foreign language, finding affordable housing, work and a reliable school for your children, you may also feel overwhelmed by all the changes.

Family and dear friends you´re leaving behind. Another culture with daily life practices you find strange or even hostile. You may be traveling along  with your partner who has a job , but how about you, are you leaving your prosperous career behind? You may have a hard time finding a job of your own and get credits for your former studies and career. You may feel clumsy in a language you do not master. You may have unfinished business in your past that you want to clarify. Or maybe you simply miss the old familiar surroundings, the landscape, the buildings, smells and sounds.

All these factors – and many more – can make you anxious or depressed. 

The good news is, there is a way out!



Together, we will look at

  • Self-confidence

  • Loss

  • Depression

  • Stress

  • Loneliness

  • Feelings of ambiguity

  • Relationship issues

  • Compulsive behaviour such as shopping, overeating, smoking, doing drugs

...and work towards

  • Brimming with self-confidence

  • Building emotional resilience

  • Closure with painful stuff in the past

  • Feeling energetic 

  • Setting goals and feeling determined to work toward these goals

  • Healthier relationships

  • Reaching out in your private life and in professional settings

  • Accepting yourself exactly as you are

  • Stopping compulsive behaviour

We will talk, visualize, look at your feelings, thoughts and body awareness. I use techniques like Voice Dialogue, Transactional Analysis, Rational Emotive Therapy and more. We will work inside the practice in my home and/or outside in nature.
