We guide you to be active, creative, connected, and grounded; staying culturally aware and comfortable in the uncomfortable

Being an expat partner requires a lot of skills. You not only organize the move, settle everyone in a new home, and- if you have children- find a good school, but in all you need to do you want to be proactive, adaptable, culturally competent, flexible, empathetic and have a 360-degree thinking skill.
That is a lot and can be very overwhelming.
As an expat partner, we tend to forget who we are and put ourselves last.
Our dreams and desires are put on hold, identities are lost, ambitions forgotten. 
But times have changed.
In today’s world more and more women are claiming a leading role, having strong careers, following their passions, ambitions and dreams.
Trailing partner is a word of the past.
You are the other half of the equation and don’t need to feel like a second class citizen where your self-esteem has taken a beating and you feel that you have given up your real self and become less of a person.

      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. As a coach and mentor 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.
