Sarah Neirinckx returned to Belgium after 15 years of living and working abroad. Back home she has begun a coaching practice called Third Culture Coaching. She is focused on providing guidance and support to modern nomads, expatriates, and repatriates.
Sarah explained that her aim is to support the transition processes while encouraging personal growth and development . Most people tend to underestimate the need for support and guidance as they transition from one continent to another after returning home from a life lived abroad. While there are the obvious and practical steps one must take, there is also the little-discussed personal and a psychological impact of returning home. Many professional organisations seem to ignore the probability of culture shock when moving their employees around the world, or bringing them home.
The phenomenon of Third Culture is all about the fact that while people living and working abroad didn't really fit into the country they were based in, they often find they no longer fit their own culture either. People often live within an expat community where they are protected from the full force of culture shock abroad however on returning home they feel the way that foreign experience has altered their personality.
HR, management, coaches, therapists, and psychologists pay scant attention to this issue of third culture issues and it was for this reason that Sarah began Bloom Co-creation.
She works with global nomads, third culture children, expatriates, repatriates, and people who are in a transition phase. She would love to hear from you.
Sarah wrote, We are excited to announce that Bloom is celebrating their launch with a Brenda Davies workshop - Creating the Life You Would Love To Live here in Antwerp, Belgium.
This exciting two-day workshop can either be followed as the two-day, or there is the possibility of attening for just one of the two days. Choose what suits you.
