Meet Emily. She’s been feeling stuck lately, trying to figure out how to move forward in her career and personal life living in a foreign country. She found me on the coaching listing on the โ€˜I Am Expat websiteโ€™ and decided to work with a coachโ€”me.

When Emily and I started our sessions, I explained to her that we were not going to dig into her past to fix problems like a therapist might. Instead, we will examine her past experiences to understand how they shape her actions and decisions today. This isn’t about healing old wounds; it’s about understanding herself to make better choices.

As we explored her past, Emily began to see patterns in her decisions and behaviors. She realized that her reluctance to take on leadership roles stemmed from a fear of failure she developed during her school days. With this understanding, Emily felt empowered. She knew she wasn’t broken but influenced by her past experiences.

Using the insights from her past, Emily and I started to plan her future. We set goals that challenged her fears and built on her strengths. We focused on moving forward, not staying stuck in the past.

Working together, Emily started to make changes. She signed up for a leadership course, started speaking up more in meetings, and set her sights on a promotion. The past that once held her back now became a stepping stone to her new, confident self.

Are you, like Emily, feeling stuck and unsure about your future? Do you want to understand how your past shapes your present and how you can leverage this understanding to transform your future? It’s time to take action. As Emily’s coach, I’m here to guide you on your journey of self-discovery and growth. Reach out today, and let’s start mapping your path to a brighter, more empowered future.
