A survey I’ve conducted among expats and nomads confirmed that living abroad will change your life forever, it’ll open your mind to new horizons, it'll be the best lesson about the world and yourself!
Exciting as it is, expat life doesn’t come without challenges. Feeling confused and out of place can be emotionally draining. Striving to belong but not knowing which way is home. I know this feeling too well as I've been an expat for 20 years.
The burning questions most expats ask me are about HOW TO:
manage constant ambiguity when it's not the fuel but a block?
find balance, stay on track and accountable in all that freedom?
take responsible decisions amongst all those choices?
regain focus and clarity in the midst of the ever changing status quo?
choose a direction when there’s no final destination?
find a meaning in the constant moving?
learn to connect when loneliness hits hardest?
unlock potential instead of doing what’s nomad/expat friendly?
find the motivation to grow?

I contacted Lucy when I was feeling stressed and needed help to form an overview of several life choices.
With her positive and holistic approach, Lucy provided guidance, support and tools so that I could navigate in the right direction.
I can only highly recommend Lucy as a coach to anyone who feels they need help finding their way.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
IMPACT OF THRIVING IN YOUR WORK, RELATIONSHIPS AND HEALTH!
I’ve been on the road for 20 years, lived in 17 cities and moved 29 times. So I know the good and the bad about the expat lifestyle. You may have to prepare for uprootedness and accept that you will no longer belong anywhere. You may also feel at your best wherever you go. So what does it depend on?
Throughout my expat and nomad journey, I've been very lucky to follow my passion of unlocking people's potential as a coach, talent manager, L&D partner, performance consultant, corporate trainer, lecturer and a teacher. It is my firm belief that with the right tools and support any stay can be a great stay! You can dare to thrive!
Thriving is when despite all the uncertainty and ambiguity, you’re crystal clear about what you want and you’re confident about how to achieve it. When you thrive, you’ve replaced overwhelm and confusion with meaning and direction.
You've strengthened mental resilience so when struggling you know not just how to bounce back but how to bounce forward.
With my Thrive Abroad Self-Mastery Coaching you’ll be in the driver’s seat of your life and make the best of what you are best at, using your potential to turn challenges into opportunities.
