Challenges related to working or living as an international in The Netherlands and other non-expat related issues:
My way of working is a dance of challenge and compassion, with shared responsibility for a good outcome and clearly defined roles and responsibilities. Compassion: learn to respect your boundaries and use your feelings as guides. And facing challenges, removing barriers and getting the best out of you, with respect for your values and circumstances. In a fun and inspiring way.
Whatever it is you’re working on, my extensive experience as expat coach and having lived in so many different countries helps to find the best approach for you, taking into account your international background.
We invest to get crystal clear what you are looking for and why: visualize where you want to go, what is holding you back now. We translate this (renewed) self-knowledge and motivation into a clear road map for action. Unlearn and learn, apply what you have learned and develop any skills or knowledge you need.
Practical and inspiring homework stimulates you to work with the insights from the coaching sessions. The reflection assignments and inspiring material deepen your self-knowledge and motivation.
You return to yourself as a richer person. With a different basic attitude of conscious living and growing, so that you do not fall back but keep on course in your new direction: more resilient, more authentic and happier with yourself and your environment.
“Coaching gave me focus and peace of mind. Martine is an admirable person both for her achievements as a professional and her simplicity as a human being.”
“‘I have learned from the sessions with Martine to be compassionate to myself and others, to see how far I already had come and to give myself credit for it, to not be so hard on myself and to find that many times (if not all) I set my own obstacles – which also makes me able to remove them ????. It has helped me to identify my personal mission and solve he challenges of living in my new country. I have gained insight of the obstacles I created and why. Now I am able to make the conscious choice between being uncomfortable and unhappy or being brave, proactive and more fulfilled!”
“Coaching helped me find my way, gave me the time to think of what I wanted, what I needed and what is important to me, visualizing it and incorporating it in my life. So it was me telling myself what to do! We found solutions with Martine asking me the right questions at the right time. She is a passionate, positive, motivating and challenging coach! I can truly say that the coaching changed my life positively.”
“Martine’s workshops made me realize that I can be comfortable and happy where-ever I am, it solved my wanting to go away all the time. It gave me ground and help me explore areas of my life that I didn’t want to see. It gave new order in my priorities. Change can be powerful!”
