Practical and emotional support for expat families

Often employers provide practical relocation assistance such as house hunting, visa application, tax consultancy etc but few provide support for accompanying partners.


However, statistics show that the most common reason expatriate postings are unsuccessful is an unhappy spouse. Adolescents regularly face similar challenges of cultural adjustment, homesickness, boredom and general culture shock.

What feels like climbing a mountain can be changed into a walk in the park.

 Vera can provide practical, confidential and emotional support to all family members in this process. Tailored to the individual needs, consultancy is available online, by Skype or in person.

She is fluent in English, German, Dutch and French. Vera has 30 years hands on experience as an accompanying partner in Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia.


She offers personalised coaching and counseling sessions for expatriate families to help cope with new and sometimes stressful situations in foreign countries. In personalised one-on-one sessions you will find a helpful hand and expertise on how to handle your new family situation.
