The truth is that all expatriates go through a process of adaptation to the new culture: Adaptation to a new home, a new job, new friendships, new aromas, new emotions, new roles, a new language, to new customs, etc.
Taking Coaching sessions can provide you with tools to help you go through this process of change in various situations such as:
Adaptating to the new country: you don’t feel comfortable with the place in general or with the language, the people, the new job, the culture, etc.
Socialization: you have not managed to meet new people or the ones you have met don’t necessarily like or accept you, you feel that you have nothing in common with anyone.
Emotional management: your emotions change abruptly depending on the day or the time of day. You can feel an emotional fan that goes from loneliness, anguish, hate to love, joy and enthusiasm.
Professional reinvention: you miss the work you left to accompany your partner and you have not been able to continue with your professional development. You do not have a work permit / visa in the new destination or you cannot master the language. You feel an existential void for having left your vocation and not knowing how to undertake something from the place where you are.
Work stress: you cannot adapt to the new position or the new boss / co-workers. You don’t like the tasks that have been handed to you and you feel a lot of pressure and competition around. You miss your old job, your old colleagues and the good working environment you experienced. You work many hours and it is never enough. You feel off, tired and frustrated.
Personal Reinvention: you don’t find what to do with your free time, there are no activities that motivate you, or that make you happy. You don’t recognize yourself in your new role, you don’t know how to find what to do or where to do it.
Mood: you feel sad, distraught, apathetic. You can’t get out of the complaint, of frustration. You think there will be no solution, that everything is lost.
Communication problems: you have difficulty expressing your feelings, your views, your worries. You are irritable, you feel anger towards your partner, you have no patience for your children. You have trouble expressing your emotions to your family and friends for not wanting to worry them.
Couple crisis: they fail to understand each other. They find it difficult to engage in dialogue without arguing, without getting angry or even shouting. Everyone carries their problems, frustrations and disagreements (sometimes already existing to the new destination, but now they are intensified).
Difficulty for your children to adapt: it is a fundamental issue that can generate concerns and discussions with your partner and with them.
Why is it important to ask for help?
The concerns and difficulties that you may be feeling today, not knowing how to handle them can change and even improve. It will also help you to see different points of view. It is important that you know that you are not alone, nor are you the first person to whom it happens to, many people have felt this way or had to deal with it at some point in their experience. Knowing that you can count on the support of a professional and have a space for containment, privacy, confidentiality can bring benefits and improvements to your life.

How do Coaching sessions work?
What is a coaching process?
Coaching consists of a process of change, of personal growth where you inquire about the current state and the desired state of the Coachee (client).
For this, the person recounts the topics on which he would like to work. Identify what you want to achieve, what are your goals, and then design an action plan where the actions and commitments necessary to meet them are established.
Coaching sessions can be taken to find results on a personal and professional level; for example, to face conflicts of couple, overcome fears and blockages, improve family relationships, work on self-esteem, lack of motivation, change of profession, vocational crisis, decision making, the definition of a life project, etc.
The Coach is a companion, who, through questions, allows the person to find in himself the tools to handle the problems and achieve his goals.
The Coachee seeks to overcome its limiting beliefs and the automatisms that do not allow it to advance and that function as obstacles to reach its goals.
The objective is that after a Coaching process, the person leaves more strengthened, with resources and tools that at the beginning did not have or at least did not identify having them. With greater confidence in their abilities and with greater self-knowledge; having acquired awareness and responsibility for the actions he takes to take charge of his present and future decisions.
Coaching facilitates that the person:
· Learn from yourself (Self-knowledge)
· Find your own answers
· Be a different observer, thus generating new possibilities for action
· Discover your fears and limiting beliefs
· Develop your personal potential
How many sessions are necessary?
A process is usually composed between 6 and 10 sessions, although the amount may vary depending on the objectives to work. The frequency is usually once a week or every fifteen days.
Coaching sessions last approximately one hour and will be held in person or if you prefer videoconferencing using Skype, FaceTime, or Whatsapp.
