“I was stressed about my kids, I was constantly worried about their school lives and their well being. Families Thriving Abroad helped me to drop the guilty feelings, I know I am not the only one with this concern and I can trust that it will all be alright in the end. The fact that I could ask someone was nice, especially because people have kids in the same age groups. It provides a better start to expat life and even when this expat life has already started, you can still learn so much!”  - Marlies

I was exhausted! I have learned to focus more on myself. We have so much in common. We can help each other and I have someone to talk to. I am more relaxed and happier now, and that makes my kids happier too!” - Heather






“Before starting with the support group I was worried about arriving in a new country, supporting and sorting my family needs, making new friends, and finding time and things for me. The support group gave me focus and time along with the resources to help me”. - Emma

Finding Purpose

There is nothing worse than the feeling of loss. Perhaps you gave up your career for this move. Perhaps you see it as an opportunity to have more time with your kids. Perhaps you were looking for a change, but you weren’t sure what it looked like. Finding purpose in your life adds focus and positive energy to your experience abroad and I will guide you to explore what that might be for you.


  • Learn more about purpose and what it actually is
  • Know where you want to make an impact
  • Start to create your own sense of purpose
Module 7

Courageous Conversations

Living in a foreign country can be challenging, not only because of the cultural differences but also because it’s so hard to say the things you really need or want to say. I call these courageous conversations, and I guarantee you will need to have these from time to time, so it’s important to know how to have one before you need to!

Burning Q&A's


You are worried about the move… like… really worried.

Whether you have just made your first move to a new country, or you moved recently and are still settling in, it’s highly like you are worried about the impact the move is going to have on you, on your family, on your relationships. 

And that’s actually very normal, but in truth you need not worry. There are really simple steps you can take that will not only support you, but your whole family to settle well into your new life abroad.

But most of all, you want to really make the most of the opportunities and the experiences that you are going to have. 

That’s why you’re motivated beyond measure to invest the next 8 weeks in supporting yourself and your family to settle well, and quickly. 


You’re so ready to “step up for your family

You recognise that this is the perfect opportunity for you to learn how to and have confidence in how you can best support your family.

You’re not afraid to put in the effort. The only thing that scares you is wasted ‘effort’. But, if anyone can do this, it’s you!

You’d expect this type of step by step course to sell for much more of an investment. In fact, when you factor in all the bonuses you will get you are totally unwilling to let this opportunity slip by. 


That’s all I’ve got..

If any of these motivating factors have got you nodding your head, I almost insist that you start today with the 30 day risk free shot.

“I felt like I was in a ball pit, all the balls were in the air and I just had to grab what I could. With Families Thriving Abroad, I realise you have to give yourself time to settle and prioritise. Recognise that you can change some things, but some is outside your realm and you have to let it go.” - An Expat Mum

I personally cannot wait to guide you over these next 8 weeks…

My husband and I have spent the past 12 years in Asia and I have been an expat for over 20 years. Both our daughters were born in India, and raising our family in a foreign context has literally transformed my life and theirs.

I’ve experienced first hand what it feels like to move your family and settle them into a new country. Not once, not twice, but every 2 years we have moved! If you are a parent, and you find yourself wanting to provide better support to your family, you owe it to yourself to at least take a risk free plunge to see what you can do differently. And with that plunge experience first hand the richness that living abroad offers you and your family. 

Should you choose to accept my invitation, I personally guarantee that these next 8 weeks will be completely and utterly life changing for you and your family.

I look forward to meeting you personally inside Families Thriving Abroad.

Best wishes,
