Get the Clarity and Confidence You Need

As an adult 'third culture kid' with an international upbringing, I know and relate to the insecurities that arise as a result of living without your friends and family around you and having to adapt yourself in order to fit in. This can make it difficult to make clear choices and feel your best. As a result, excitement about new opportunities is intermingled with feelings of doubt about how to take confident steps that allow you to make the most of your international experience. As a trained coach and a fellow international, I can help you get the insights and clarity you need to thrive during this extraordinary journey.

My coaching is available for you wherever you are in the world through Skype or Zoom.

Elise naturally made me feel comfortable and heard. Through asking the right questions, she gave me unique insights about myself and motivated me to take the actions I had been afraid or unsure of taking. Our sessions increased my understanding of myself as well as Dutch culture, making me feel more positive and confident about how to get the most out of my time in the Netherlands.

Being a TCK will always play a central role to who I am and how I navigate the world. As a coach, Elise with her similar background has a unique ability to understand the position I am in.

Our sessions have been immensely helpful in gaining clarity into my personal and professional goals and finding the tools to get there. Elise with her empathetic, intuitive and pragmatic approach has helped me feel confident and empowered to navigate forward. I cannot recommend her enough!

Meet Elise

Originally from the Netherlands, my first experience abroad began at the age of 7. 9 moves, 8 countries and 2 continents later, I found that the experience shaped me in both positive and less positive ways. This has driven me to dedicate myself to supporting internationals through coaching, by empowering them to feel confident and thrive during their journey abroad.
