Expat coaching

For young professionals in their 20s and 30s

Moving to another country is exciting and adventurous, but also a major change. You leave your home and with it all your regular habits, which you sometimes didn’t even know you had. In your new country they speak (usually) a different language, they have a different culture and different customs. This allows you to feel insecure or lonely at some point. Maybe you are homesick or you just don’t know who you are without having your family and friends around you. Tt is difficult to create such a bond with people in your new life.

The coaches of Het Groei Atelier are happy to help you deal with this beautiful, but major, life-changing event. Together we investigate how you can shape your new life in a way that suits you.

“Follow your heart. It sounds easy… ”

But actually, it’s not. How do you know what your heart is telling you? And how do you then shape your plans to realize your ambitions?

Take four steps from setting your goal to concrete results

Het Groei Atelier has developed a unique coaching model based on a range of theories. Work with your expat coach to take four steps from setting your goal to concrete results. On top of this coaching model, we use various tools with proven effectiveness.


The first step in every coaching programme is to identify your coaching goal. During your coaching sessions, we will build your self-awareness so you can gain greater insight and understanding of how you think, act and feel.


Your potential is the sum of your talents, skills and experience. It is your strength. Living and working from your strength is the path to happiness. In this phase you will also investigate what prevents you from harnessing your full potential.


Inspiration is what your heart goes for, what drives and motivates you. Living and working from inspiration gives energy. The other way around, it costs energy if you neglect your inspiration and personal drive.

Personal leadershipself

Finally, we help to increase you personal leadership: achieve real results with new insights in self-awareness, inspiration and increased potential.
