Emigration has a sensitive side

Sooner or later, emigration brings unexpected twists to life. 
Emigration has an emotional impact on every person involved. Like the prospective emigrant/expat, the emigrant/expat, the employer of the emigrant/expat and the loved ones staying behind.

How do you deal with the emotional impact of emigration/expatriation? How do you get past it, implement it or move on? You want your emigration/expat dream to come true? You want it to become a success ?
You need to deal with the emotional side as well.
I am happy to help you with that.

Emigration has a sensitive side

Emigration brings, sooner or later, unexpected twists to life. For all that are involved. Having plans to emigrate, being an emigrant for years, being an employee of Dutch emigrants/expats, permanent or temporary, for the loved once that are left behind….. Emigration has more impact on a person than sense would tell you.

How do you deal with emotional problems? How do you get past them and move on? I am happy to help you with that.


Emigrating is a lifechanging event. Emotions come along with that.  That’s a fact. If you like it or not. Do you recognize: loneliness, doubt, guilt, integration problems?

  • Are all conversations confidential? Absolutely! Whatever you tell me stays between us, unless you give me permission to share information. I do make notes during a session. These are for myself to support my memory. They will be locked away between sessions.
  • I don’t have internet or have really bad internet connection, can we still work together? Yes, not a problem. Let me know and we get something sorted, like a landline. Might there be extra costs involved, it will be on your account, but we make agreements on that beforehand.
