Reasons British Expats Get My Coaching Help
I frequently get contacted to help expats or English speaking people living abroad because connecting with a coach from their homeland, or one that speaks their mother tongue, is often an important criterion. It instantly removes some of the mental blocks they feel they have or a coach local to them might have.
Interestingly, I notice that British expats who are originally from close to where I’ve been born, bred and am still based, South Manchester, are especially drawn to contacting me. I feel this is sometimes due to more than just my expertise; it’s also due to that ultimate feeling of familiarity. A northern girl from near their northern roots equals a bridged gap.
Relationship Coaching for British Expats via Skype
It’s quite common for Brits living abroad to start romantic relationships with people native to that land or with those from other countries who have also made this foreign land their home.
What this can bring is a further complication because now you are not only blending your British culture with the culture of where you’re residing, but also the culture of your lover.
For some this is a walk in the park but for others this can result in a bumpy road littered with misunderstandings, false assumptions and different attitudes and perceptions.
Whether you’re dating, cohabiting or married, Skype coaching with or without your partner could be the life line you or your relationship needs.
Dating Coaching for British Expats via Skype
Dating in a land with customs different to your own adds an extra challenge on top of any other existing challenges you’re already facing in the world of dating. Cultural differences, communication challenges, different norms and expectations, all affect the dating life of a British expat. Skype coaching enables you to navigate your way in this doubly foreign terrain.
Confidence Coaching for British Expats via Skype
Confidence and self-esteem affect our achievements in all aspects of life, relationships, career, health and more. Cross-culturally, ideas about confidence and self-esteem can be varied so a fellow Brit can help expats to address their confidence or self-esteem via Skype coaching based on a framework that may be greater aligned to their own upbringing and outlook.
Life Direction Coaching for British Expats via Skype
Some people traverse the world, settle down in foreign lands, make it their home and enjoy their life much more than they were doing at home. What happens, though, when you come to a cross-road and you’re not sure if your career is still right for you and/or whether your new homeland is still right for you? Do you stay or do you go? Do you forge a new career where you are, take your career to another country or back to the UK, or do you not know if it’s the career or the country that’s making you feel dissatisfied with life.
So many questions with so few clear-cut answers can be mind-boggling.
Skype coaching allows you to gain the clarity and learn the practical steps you need to take to get you travelling down the right road for you, whether that’s right where you are living as a British expat or somewhere else.
