Some reasons to see a life coach.

We always start your journey from this very point onwards, we look forwards, not back.

To be better, not just feel better.

We developed steps to help improve yourself and your life.

A life coach will stand by you through the tough times cheering you on.

If you wish to gain a better understanding of who you really are ( especially as an expat, having lost your entire support system).

Do you want to become more confident in yourself and your abilities?

You’re the kind of person who is willing to put in the work.

Or, do you just need help seeing life from a different perspective.

Some reasons not to see a life coach

You want someone else to fix your problems for you.

You want to be told what to do.

‘Change’ is a swear word.

You’re not willing to fully invest in yourself.

You only want to feel better.

You don’t want to put in the work, because it will take a lot of work.

Other things to be aware of:


When you have someone to hold you accountable, the likelihood that you will succeed is much higher.

That is why I am here, to help hold you accountable for any steps you yourself have put into place and to make sure that you follow through with them.

But ultimately you need to be able to be accountable for yourself and that is something we will work on together.

Personal responsibility

You have so much more potential than you realize and the only way to tap into that is by taking personal responsibility.

Taking personal responsibility doesn’t only mean owning up to your mistakes, it also refers to taking responsibility for your actions, your thoughts, and your reactions.

It dose not mean that you take on the responsibility of other people’s mistakes, actions, thoughts and reactions. Just your own.

Amount of work = amount of change

Just be aware that changing your life takes a lot of work and the amount of change you create is directly linked to the amount of work you put into it.
