Relocation Adjustment

Moving to another country can be an added stress for any family. Not only does the main breadwinner change jobs, responsibilities, language, working hours and travel commitments when they move to France, but the support partner also has to adjust to changes in friends, lack of family contact, new schools, child adjustment difficulties etc … It can be expected that relocation problems will arise for families: either between couples, individual life challenges and/or for the children.

Short Bio

I hold a masters degree in applied forensic psychology, having specialised in childhood abuse both academically and in practice work. 

Having worked for many years with families in difficulties, my areas of specialisation are, crisis intervention and crisis prevention: putting into practice coping strategies that prevent difficulties from escalating and establishing positive behavioural change that facilitate change at difficult life-challenging times, including positive communication skills and conflict resolution. Other areas that I focus on are positive well-being, including body and mind, and behavioural difficulties in children, in which I have had many years of experience in.

I currently coach:  In my private practice, (those experiencing daily life challenges), international expats (both privately and for Netexpat an International coaching organisation based in Paris), and to academic students re: career orientation.  I also have experience in career reconversion or coaching clients setting up businesses in France.

My approach is to first listen and then help you work through issues with positive thinking and practical action.

It is important to seek support during life challenges. While trained as a psychologist I offer a coaching service that differs from a psychological approach, while still maintaining the best elements of psychology. It’s essential during this challenging period to have positive reinforcement around you to be able to maintain the strong role of holding the family together. While friends and acquaintances may offer a listening ear it is also important to have an objective sounding board who can reflect back your needs clearly. Sometimes friends are going through their own crisis and perhaps not in a position to give you the time and support you need. Confidentiality is a must especially where a lot of families, partners and children all know each other. Negativity and critical speech about others can have a devastating effect on families, working relationships and the children within a small community.

Your confidentiality and your life challenges are absolutely assured when you come to a professional.
