International Directory of Coaches / Counsellors / Therapists for Repatriates
Have you gone back (are going back) home and would like to make the most of this opportunity to think about the next phase of your life?
Maybe you are struggling in your re-entry / repatriation?
Or is it tougher than you expected and you’d like someone to walk alongside you to help to get you through?
If so this international directory is a good starting place. Listed here are people who work specifically with people like YOU. Many people listed work internationally, not just where listed, so don’t discount someone because they are not based in your own country. Do read their details carefully, look them up on their websites, and have a chat with them before committing to anything so that you make sure they are the right person for you. Please mention this directory when getting in touch with people.
If you would like help or advice in choosing, or working out what sort of support you are looking for, get in touch with me here.
Likewise, if you would like to be included on this list, please find further details here.

Having navigated her own repatriation after living abroad for 7 years she knows only too well the complexities, nuances and challenges of relocating ‘home’. With a specialty in career management she is particularly passionate about helping individuals not just reintegrate but leverage their experiences, skills and networks.
Margot runs training and mentoring programs both within organisations and with individuals directly.
The Insync Network Group was founded out of her own personal repatriation journey and the enormous benefits she found in meeting and engaging with others who were returning ‘home’. In acknowledging that repatriation is about reconnection, the group provides support to members across all facets of life and business and is aimed at supporting both the expat and their partner.
Further information about Margot can found here on her LinkedIn profile.

I offer an informal, conversational approach to debriefing which follows the model recommended by People in Aid and is designed to be as comfortable an experience for the returnee as possible. I focus on normalising their experience of disorientation as they return to a world into which they think they should belong but don’t fit any more, and explore issues of personality and identity which may help them manage the transition.

Dr. Rachel Cason works from a position of both empathy and extensive research experience with TCKs. Life Story work comprises an initial double session where the client ‘walks through’ their life story. This is recorded and used as the basis for analysis, keeping in mind the issues that the client has identified as most challenging. A number of follow up sessions involve a collaborative journeying, where Dr. Cason draws attention to patterns emergent in their past story and the client engages in a dialogue that both empowers and clarifies the shape of the chapters yet to come.

I offer a coaching package called “re-potting for growth.” Initially, I help you to take on board your learning from your time away – working out what you would like to take with you and which aspects of your experience need to be left behind. After that, we put things in place to strengthen you and help you feel more on top of things during the settling-in phase of your repatriation. Then as roots start to form in your new location, we move towards your dreams for the next stage, and see what resources you have to take you on to a place of thriving.
In addition, or separately, I offer one-off debriefs to people who have returned in the last few months from a challenging assignment: 1-3 hours non-judgmental listening to help you make sense of your time away and the stresses you experienced. I also offer a four-part webinar series to help you settle back in your home country and a free email series for use before you leave, preparing you to go home.

The client is the expert on his/her life. I offer what the client needs, counseling or coaching, remaining positive, prayerful, and supportive throughout. Both methods increase life learning but differ:
- Counseling offers review of past events to unshackle traumas for future freedom.
- Coaching assists the client in discovering insights, developing plans, and taking the next steps toward goals. I use effective techniques such as active listening, open questions, encouragement, challenges to present thinking, and celebration of achievements.
I am also available to work with couples for pre-engagement to marital conflict needs. Using the Prepare/Enrich online assessment and training, I am able to pinpoint issues of differences and help couples find resolution and confidence in moving forward.
