What is Global Nomad Coaching and how can it help me?
Global Nomad Coaching helps people create the international life they desire. Whether you want help starting an international life or you feel stuck in your current global life and you are ready for your next step, you can get the help you want through coaching. As your coach, I will be there to guide you from where you are now, to where you want to be both personally and professionally.
What is Coaching and why has it become so popular?
Coaching is an investment in yourself and helps you create the life you really want. It’s all about understanding and maximizing the potential you already have, creating a new life or finding balance in your current life and finding the motivation to make the changes you desire. In our rapidly changing world, people are realizing that it’s not that easy to understand or choose between all the options presented to us these days. Turning your life upside down and ‘going global’ is no small task, change is hard and we naturally postpone things that are difficult. Coaching can help you get a clearer view of what’s available to you, help you make those decisions and most important help you follow through with your desired changes.
What is a Global Nomad?
A Global Nomad is someone who lives an international lifestyle. Global Nomads travel from one country to another, the connection to your own country has often changed and some people develop a sense of belonging to more than one culture. Some have an international career and others work in jobs that are location independent.
Who does Global Nomad Coaching help?
Global Nomads and aspiring Global Nomads from all over the world are welcome. If you are living a global life or are ready to create one, feel free to connect for an orientation session, sign up for the latest blog or check out the Tips page for useful resources. The aim is to find a suitable time to connect with people from all different time zones. Sessions will be held through ‘Videochat’ typically Skype or Zoom are used for the sessions.
Why are the advantages of online sessions?
Online coaching is a big advantage because you can connect from anywhere. Sessions can be adapted to your time zone and you don’t have to travel to a physical location. Sessions can be completely anonymous, you don’t have to give your personal details if you don’t want to. You can also choose sessions with audio only. All in all, you decide how much of yourself you want to share and show.
What are the benefits of having a Global Coach?
As a person, I know what it’s like to live the life of a Global Nomad. I’ve lived in 10 different countries and visited 30 countries altogether. As a coach, I draw from these experiences and this has helped me have a better understanding of the global life choices and needs of my clients. View pictures of my trips on Instagram
Which Coaching packages do you offer?
There are different types of coaching packages each designed to suit your needs. Your needs will be discussed in a free orientation session and you will get advice on which package is suitable for your situation.
‘Help! I’m Moving Abroad’ is a program that offers the support you need to make the unknown a little more predictable in just 3 sessions. Learn more about what to plan for, what to expect when settling in and how to adjust to a new culture.
‘Your next Global Step’ is a 5 step coaching program that will help you design your desired global lifestyle or help you find direction in your current global life. You’ll get a clearer understanding of what it is you want, what you need to get there, craft a plan & live the life you want.
Personalized Coaching Sessions are for people who want sessions that are tailored to suit their specific needs. You might already be living your international life and need help dealing with the many transitions or maybe you have a more specific challenge that you want coaching for.
Accountability coaching is a form of coaching designed for people who generally know what they want but would like a coach to help them follow through with their goals. ‘Videochat’ sessions or email sessions can be held once or twice a month and will focus on goal-setting, identifying the obstacles and increasing self-motivation. This can also be used as a follow-up of the above packages.
Are you qualified to help me?
I have completed the Certified Coach Program by the Coach Training Alliance an ICF (International Coach Federation) accredited Mentor Coach Program. I also hold a degree in Social Sciences and have done studies in Training and Human Development.
What is your coaching style?
I’m a pragmatic, goal oriented, passionate and compassionate coach. We will start with getting a sense of what your personal needs and desires are and I will coach you accordingly. Achieving your goals and making sure you get what you want out of coaching is my number one aim. Reaching that aim means that I will be open-minded to whatever your goals are but at the same time if necessary, I might need to give you a well-meant shove in the right direction. All I ask from you is that you are committed and open to moving towards a better version of your life.
Which techniques and strategies are used in the coaching sessions?
Besides the general coaching techniques, I have also been trained in Solution Focused Therapy and Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy as part of my counselling training in my early career. These techniques are integrated into my coaching programs and sessions. Read more about my practical experience on my LinkedIn profile
