        Nathalie Nordemann

        Health & Well-being coach

        Having been an expatriate for 23 years and making full circle has given me ample experience. When I left the Netherlands in 1995 and moved to London I was a brand manager with a large logistic company .

        I was brought up with the mantra: ‘have a career of your own this will give you status, money and respect ‘ That all changed when my husband and I decided to discover the world as expatriates. My status became: Mr Reumers wife. I had no career of my own and often felt stuck with young kids at home. The mantra kept playing in the back of my mind.

        That unfulfilled feeling took me on a road of self discovery and deep soul searching: who am I, what am I here for, where do I fit in. It was a journey I would not have wanted to miss.
        I also realized I could have been better prepared and certainly could have used some help from the company or from someone who had been there!

        Eventually I chose the path of Health & Well-being. My mission is to help other partners through my experiences, knowledge and expertise make their journey around the world a Happy, Healthy and Fulfilling one!

        InnerLifeSkills Coach
        (Life-Business-Enneagram) & Licensed InnerLifeSkills Trainer.

        In 2001 I moved to Singapore where I worked as an expatriate for DHL Regional office.
        Many years later I got married and became an Accompanying Partner.

        We moved to various parts of the world and for the first time in my life I got confronted with not being able to work.

        My ego got a hit and it knocked me off my game. I felt I was no longer seen as Ireen Branders but as the wife of as if I no longer counted.

        I now see that this change was a gift to explore new opportunities and self-growth. But I also realize that these feelings of loss of identity could have been resolved sooner and my progress would have accelerated if only I could have found a program to guide and to prepare me for this journey.

        Today my dream is that all Accompanying Partners can fully express who they truly are and take the international assignment as an opportunity for self-growth and development.
