stay or go?
My signature coaching method is tailored to expats who feel stuck trying to decide whether to stay or go. I will help you feel absolutely confident about making the right decision and at ease about your future.
Hi, I'm Katherine!
I’m a former serial expat (15 yrs), a happy repat (2 yrs) and an expert on change.
Even though I’ve spent my entire professional and academic life working with change, innovation and uncertainty, at some point I lost the plot in my personal life and I spent years agonizing over whether I should stay or go (and if so, where) because I was terrified of making the wrong kind of change.
The worst part about it was that instead of talking to someone to find clarity I simply continued to go around in circles in my head. That’s until I finally had enough.
Drawing from my professional experience, I created a step-by-step process that helped me figure out what I wanted so I could finally feel at home somewhere. The right answer for me turned out to be repatriation, a decision that I haven’t regretted even once.
I’ve since turned my process into a signature coaching method so that you won’t have to figure things out all on your own. It’s my mission to help you find clarity and confidence in your decision so that you can finally feel at home somewhere in this world as well.
