the end of an era

Since I’m no longer actively running Bad Days Abroad, I do not offer any coaching sessions any longer. I’ve moved on to my new venture The Fox Hill Witch where I guide those who resonate with my energy to navigate an uncertain time in their life based on their unique astrological birth chart. If you feel lost personally, professionally or geographically, my readings are there to light the way towards your soul’s deepest desires.

But don’t worry, all the wisdom and insight I’ve gained from working with expats 1:1 has been captured in my self-guided resources – the Clarity Workbook and online courses – that are still available for you to purchase and to help you find clarity and direction in your life.

Struggling to decide or commit to your decision?

You’re tired of feeling like you’re just not happy with your life abroad and you can’t imagine feeling like this for years to come. So there you are – 

feeling stuck about what to do,

unsure about where/whether you should move to feel fulfilled, or

looking for confirmation that you’re making the right decision.

Trying to figure it out with your partner, or by talking about it with friends or family has just makes you feel even more confused and you’re in desperate need for an objective look at your dilemma.

Meanwhile, there *are* things that you really appreciate about your life abroad, right? Things that you haven’t had the luxury to experience before.

So it’s hard for you to know what you’re willing to sacrifice when the country you’re considering moving (back) to doesn’t have those same perks (but it does have all those other things that you’ve been longing for for a while, I know…). 

And around and around in your head you go.

Hi, I'm Katherine, a clarity coach for expats and a former serial expat of 15 years

Whether you can’t decide whether to stay or go, where to settle down or whether you should move back home, the truth is that you are not doomed to feeling this anxious and confused every day. 

It is absolutely possible for you to feel content with your life and at ease that you’re making the right decision to live abroad, move back home or even to a new destination. 

It’s my mission to help you discover what it is that you need and how to make it happen, wherever that may be.

I’ll be your sounding board for all your fears and concerns, so you can find the same kind of clarity that helped me find *the place* where I could finally unpack my things and feel at home.

I wanted to talk everything through and have a sounding board as I was making the decision alone. Working through all aspects with Katherine really made me feel so much more confident than before. My whole mindset around the move is now relaxed and I’m excited for what the future holds. I’m also far more comfortable now informing others about my decision!

My signature coaching method

Here's how it works

Majority of my clients are looking for a fresh perspective and quick feedback to whether their (potential) decision would put them on the right path. Expats are also often curious about how their situation compares to others that I’ve worked with. Working with me will bring you all three – a fresh perspective, clarity over your options and confidence that your situation is both solvable and part of a common expat experience. 

During our session together, I will focus on the following themes to support you in moving from confused and anxious to clear and confident about your next steps.

Reviewing your experience abroad

We reflect on how your life abroad has shaped you - what's worked and what hasn't - and draw conclusions from that about what you need more of in your life going forward

Understanding your needs

Maybe your needs have changed over the years or maybe you're no longer sure what your needs are. Either way, we put considerable emphasis on discovering what you truly need so that your final decision actually supports you rather than works against you.

Cutting out the noise

Many factors can make it difficult to *commit* to a decision, even if we recognize it as the right one. Pressure and judgment from others, outdated hopes and dreams, conflating factors, an overly pessimistic perspective. Together we work on eliminating all the noise that's making it difficult for you to see a way forward.

Making an action plan

We discuss how you can best deal with concerns around career, logistics, finances, parenting global children, difficult family relations, starting from scratch and fear of things not working out, all depending on the unique challenges you need support with.

CLarity intensive

A fresh perspective in 90 minutes

  • In a single session we deconstruct the key reasons that are making it difficult for you to commit to a decision, look at these reasons from an honest and proactive perspective, and discuss strategies so that you know how to move forward with greater ease and confidence on your own. To book a session, you'll be asked to fill in the application form. I will then email you a link to my calendar (I cater to all time zones) and a payment link (payment plans available). Once we've sorted out the practical stuff, I will send you homework based on your answers to the application form to help you make the most out of the session.

This was exactly what I needed! I didn’t realize that I don’t have to worry about where my life is headed. There’s no need to put pressure on myself, or to accept pressure from others, to have my next steps figured or to think about settling down if I’m enjoying my life abroad as it is (at least for now).

P.S. My coaching method

is not right for you if...

❌ you would rather keep wondering about what you should do than take action and find clarity

❌ you believe that making changes will only make things worse 

❌ living a life that’s just ‘okay’ but not ‘great’ is good enough for you


But you will love working with me

If you are ready...

to say goodbye to constant anxiety around what you should do 

to realize what kind of changes you need to make so you can get what you want in life and where you may need to accept the things that you can’t change

to look for solutions rather than obstacles because you believe that there is a solution to every problem or challenge

✅ to watch your hopes become a reality because you were brave enough to take action

Feel in control of your life again!

01

You don’t have to figure things out all on your own – you can rely on me, someone who’s been where you’re at for far longer than was necessary. And the best part? I’ve figured out a path to clarity that has worked over and over again. All you need to do? Apply the steps to your situation.

02

When you don’t know where all this is going, where you will be in a few years’ time and how to make a messy decision with a lot of parts to it then what you need is a structured approach to understanding your situation. That’s why I take you through a step-by-step process and help you see what you need to do. 

 

03

It’s easy to feel alone and like no one else is struggling with the same feelings and worries as you. All of my clients report feeling like they’re not alone anymore after they’ve shared their dilemma with me. Many before you have been where you’re at and still come out the other side happier than ever.

Katherine has a lot of experience working with other expats going through the same challenges. There really are a myriad of factors to consider, some more important than others. Katherine provided a clear and structured framework for me, in which to gain clarity and separate the real fears from the imagined ones. I felt validated in what I was thinking and feeling. After I made my decision, I felt confident and happy, having all that mental space cleared from having to think “stay or go” all the time.

Say goodbye to...

Not knowing what you want

An end to confusion and overwhelm from not knowing what you want and what's most important to take into consideration.

Focusing on the wrong things

No more going in circles and feeling lost about what you should do, all the while not moving any closer to clarity.

Hoping things will get better

Missing opportunities and unintentionally holding yourself back from making changes that will make you so much happier (abroad or back home).

And say hello to...

Feeling in control

Know what steps are important to take to find clarity and what you need to focus on in your decision-making.

Having a clear plan

Know how to manage your fears, eliminate limiting beliefs and plan for necessary changes.

Feeling confident

Know exactly what you want, why you want it and where in the world you can actually feel at home and at ease (even on the bad days).

This was a really rewarding experience for me – Katherine dived deep into my world, I learned so much about myself, and I ended up being really confident in my decision, even if going through a big change is a bit scary.

MY STORY
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 choice.

The worst part 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.
