To Make Your Journey Extraordinary
Do you sometimes feel stressed, worried, uncertain, and a little frustrated? Do you find yourself forcing a smile when family and friends tell you what an amazing life you’re living?
You’re grateful for so much of what living abroad brings — experiencing the opportunities that only happen once in a lifetime. And yet, something inside of you doesn’t feel quite right. Sound familiar? Chances are, you’ve left family and friends in your home country. You may have left behind a career, lost income — and maybe you’ve even lost your sense of purpose.
Now you are on a quest to find purpose again. But that’s easier said than done, right? Maybe you are not sure how to make it all work for the family, for your partner’s career, and for you. There are so many unknowns — constant decisions about where to live, which school to choose, how to establish a sense of rootedness while living abroad. It can wear you down! You may be wondering how much more you’ll need to sacrifice. You’re tired. And you’re constantly busy doing things that are not always fulfilling.
Something has to change — you just don’t know what.
Are you ready to stop living in limbo? Don’t wait. NOW is the time to start making the most of your adventure — and your one extraordinary life.

Stop playing small and putting your life on hold. Come create a new reality that’s the perfect expression of who you are and who you’ve become. I’m here to help you do it.
Caroline is a wonderful and present coach. I have found the sessions themselves very useful in unlocking my thinking. Caroline’s probing questions are very useful in helping one to think things through in an orderly and concerted manner.
I was not as focused in my professional life as I wanted to be and trying to do too much. I have definitely made a big leap in focus and confidence. Now I engage in conversations with curiosity, ask myself the right questions, and protect my time better.
I wanted to work with a life coach to support the transitional phase I am going through and who understands my experiences, the lifestyle and where I am at. I felt very stuck and the program helped me to re-invent myself.
One of my biggest takeaways is to realize how critical I am towards myself and learning to be in my team.
I spend less time thinking. I spend more time doing what I want to do.
I am learning to spend money and time on my wishes.
I was specifically interested in finding a coach that understood the expat lifestyle and the varying job markets/employment opportunities that may be available to me. I was looking for a program to help me design a plan for the long term, not simply assist with things like my CV, and interview preparation.
My biggest takeaway so far is the shift from indecision to motivation and momentum. I also really appreciate the non-judgmental approach that emphasizes factual acknowledgment of challenges or roadblocks in lieu of judgement or a ‘sheer-motivation’ approach. In this way, it seems we are getting to the root of the thinking behind the challenge or roadblock, which not only helps now but in the future as well.
I wanted to get my professional life on track and felt frustrated and uncertain about what the future would bring when I started the program. I was surprised to realize that my fantasy had become limited.
My main goal in participating in the program was to find out how to lead a fulfilling life as an expatriate. Before the program, I felt stuck and overwhelmed by dealing with change. Realizing that the power and control I thought I had lost with changes in life circumstances were where they had always been within me gave me peace and the ability to move forward and take action.
The more I did the work, the more I realized how possible it is to reach my goals and that’s very motivating! This coaching program has changed me deeply. My outlook on my life will never be the same. I feel infinitely grateful to have met Caroline and to have made this personal development journey with her.
I love Caroline’s kind, warm, unconditional and non-judgemental support, her dynamic questions and how she manages to structure my reasoning into something organized and intentional, how she addresses my fears and blocks, and channel everything into an action plan for each day. Caroline simply teaches us how to own our life and projects, how to find calm and resources within ourselves in order to be who we want to be.
Caroline’s coaching is life-changing –it’s like a mirror for your mind. You will start to examine the patterns and thoughts that are creating your current reality. Caroline is an amazing coach. I felt so understood, it was amazing. And on top of it somehow, she creates this space where you can hear yourself and come to the realizations on your own. The only word to describe the technique is POWERFUL.
I loved Caroline’s ability to “get it.” Clicking quickly into my psyche and identifying the areas where it was that we needed to look at for greater personal growth. The ability to share personal information in a trusted place was precious, as well as the ability to gain 3rd-party, independent feedback that was not from family, close friends, or anyone else who may have their own agenda or preconceived ideas or thoughts on you.
My relationship with my partner is now peaceful, and I am learning how to forgive myself and love my imperfections.
I am now free in my relationships in general and in particular in my relationship with my husband and my mother. For the first time in three years, I decided to spend the holidays with my mother and, thanks to Caroline’s coaching and tools, I eliminated my fears and chose to do what I truly wanted during that holiday time. I felt free and connected to myself and my husband and mother during that special time.
I gained confidence in myself at work. I learned how to take a step back from my life in general. I created a greater openness with those close to me, more gentleness towards myself in difficult times.
I’m Caroline: a global nomad, certified life coach and founder of Girafe Coaching.
Over the last 20 years, I have lived abroad in six different countries across three continents. I left a career in international development with large international organizations to follow my second calling and became a Certified Life and Transition Coach for global nomads.
I’m passionate about saving accompanying partners the pain and energy of doing it on their own. I’m on a mission to empower you to play big, go after your dreams, and make an impact while doing what brings you joy —all while having the flexibility you need.
My powerful methodology and step-by-step program is designed to help you create the success you want according to your definition of success.
I can’t wait to meet you inside this program and introduce you to the Girafe Coaching community!
Are you ready to stop putting your life on hold?
Are you ready to stop reinventing yourself every time you move?
Are you ready to unlock your full potential, thrive, and create a life you truly love?
You are an adventurous and resourceful expat, a global nomad, or an expat partner who enjoys the richness of what a life abroad has to offer.
You do not want to sacrifice quality time with your loved ones, but you are craving a greater sense of purpose in your expat life.
After taking a step back from a promising career to raise a family and follow your partner abroad, you feel like nothing that happens in your life is really your choice.
You are spread thin steering the wheel of your busy mobile life. You feel stressed, worried, and frustrated because you want to have a bigger impact and contribute to the financial well-being of your family.
You want to be doing something you love but don’t see good options to make it happen.
Have a wonderful life on paper but inside you want more accomplishment and purpose.
You feel guilty for not enjoying what you have compared with all the suffering around you — but something is really missing, and you don’t know what it is!
You have many decisions to make, including where home should be and what type of life would be best for you and your children.
You have no clue where you will live in a few years and dread the next transition already.
Have a wonderful life on paper but inside you want more accomplishment and purpose.
You pack your days with social coffees, sport, activities but you are bored and wish you could do more significant things.
UNLOCK YOUR FULL POTENTIAL is a program to help you create a life that’s the perfect reflection of you. A life lived fully and with purpose, in which you can make an impact and feel joy. A life that’s extraordinary according to your definition — so you can stop reinventing yourself, stop living in limbo, stop spinning your wheels, and know the best is yet to come.
Living life according to your fullest potential means unlocking all the unique resources you have inside you.
In this course, you will develop the 3 keys to unlocking your potential:
With an effective vision -> you will save a lot of time, frustration, and energy.
When you are clear on what you want to do and develop a step-by-step system to achieve it, decisions will suddenly become easy — and opportunities you would never have believed possible will show up.
You will finally experience a sense of purpose, accomplishment, joy, aliveness, confidence, and security.
HOW DOES THE UNLOCK YOUR FULL POTENTIAL PROGRAM WORK?
The Unlock Your Full Potential program contains 5 major components to support you in your journey, with results you can see right from the start:
With 4 months of guidance and support, you will create that extraordinary life you long for and find the equilibrium you crave.
Participants in the UNLOCK YOUR FULL POTENTIAL program will reap the most from the experience by taking 15–20 minutes each day to complete daily assignments for the duration of the program. There is room for flexibility without compromising the benefits of the process, but action is far more important than perfection. The program length is designed to optimize impact and change.
You probably have lots of questions about the program. Here are the answers to those I am most often asked:
Feeling stuck just means that you have learned to think a certain way, and no one has taught you to unlock all those incredible and unique resources inside you. You have built your current way of thinking over time, and you look at what you have accomplished or not achieved through this filter.
Luckily, in a much shorter period of time, you can intentionally and deliberately transform the way you think. It’s called brain plasticity, and we all have this. Have you learned anything new in recent years? To drive on the left side of the road, to cook with different ingredients, to communicate in another language, to learn a new sport or hobby? You can learn to direct your thoughts deliberately to define a vision that’s yours — and you can make it happen.
Most people I work with start out with this fear, but it is unfounded. You intuitively know that you can create exactly the life you want, but your cognitive mechanisms currently are not supporting you to do so. And if I am wrong (for the first time) in your particular case, I offer a full money back guarantee for this powerful program. If you participate in the scheduled video calls, follow the modules, and complete the exercises and think you have made no progress at the end of the program, I will refund you in full.
This is typically a default thought in our brains that is not useful. Luckily, we can work on it together to help create change. There is no benefit in judging where you are in your life. When you tell yourself you’re stuck, you feel stressed, which leads you to ruminate on certain choices, past situations, or decisions made. It can lead you to procrastinate, avoid the situation, and possibly distract yourself with social media, chocolate, alcohol, etc.
Truly focusing on what you want for yourself gives you the impulse to start something else. This is precisely what can inspire you to learn, grow, progress, and stretch. Lack of trust brings no benefits. Whatever your past, your experiences, where you live, you deserve to feel confident; and the more confident you feel, the better results you will achieve. This is just a skill to learn — and I have developed and fine-tuned the perfect tools to help you do so in the most efficient way.
Actually, it’s just the opposite. It’s precisely when you’re not happy with yourself that you think about yourself the most: what people think of you, how much you drank the night before, how to maintain your daily routine while trying to meet new people or plan your next transition. We take everything personally and project our doubts and our fears and our guilt onto others.
Conversely, the more you work to be at peace with yourself — the more you connect to your true desires and align what you think, feel, and do — the more incredible and extraordinary results you will create in your life. This work will create fantastic opportunities for you to be available and present with others without expectations, without judgment, without guilt, without comparison. The people you love the most — your children and your partner in the front row — will benefit very directly, as will all the other people you meet, near and far.
You may have a busy life, a tight schedule, people who rely on you, all sorts of obligations and commitments, and no time for yourself at all.
If so, you are the one most in need of an effective practice to create calm and clarity within yourself. This is precisely what will allow you to approach your life, your commitments, and your tasks in the most intentional way. This work will help you use your resources of time and energy in the best way for you.
I know it sounds hard to imagine from where you are, but you have no idea how much mental time you’ll save when you learn to control your mind. This is probably what surprised and impressed me the most when I put these tools in place in my life.
When your brain takes you into thought spirals it can create hours (even days) of stress overflow, anxiety, uncertainty, guilt, fear — and all of this for often basic things…
Imagine the interesting and exciting things you could create in your life if all that mental availability were given back to you! When you acquire the tools to create space internally, it also addresses a large part of the exhaustion caused by emotional fatigue.
Think about what your inner difficulties have cost you in various distractions that have not solved the basic problem: perhaps in the form of education and studies or various kinds of therapy, perhaps in the form of vacations or adventures, or maybe in the form of nights out where you weren’t able to take full advantage because you were so tense, upset, or worried.
Evaluate the cost of not solving these difficulties. Is it worth the cost of spending the equivalent of a plane ticket for your family to return to your country of origin to fully enjoy the rest of your life? To find what excites you? To feel the extraordinary joy of accomplishing meaningful things every day? For a peaceful, rich life as a couple? To feel present and loving with your children? To achieve your financial goals?
How much money do you leave behind each year precisely because you do not feel in a position to claim something really satisfying in the midst of all these moves? Unraveling your limiting patterns — which we are going to do — will open up extraordinary perspectives for you.
Your brain and the way you think determine absolutely everything in your life: the way you feel every day, the way you envision your career, the way you act in your family or at the office, the way you conduct your short- and long-term life.
With this program, I’m offering to equip you with a set of skills that you will benefit from for the rest of your life and that will benefit all the people around you — especially your children. This is a priceless opportunity.
My signature program is based on proven processes and are personalized to your needs and situation. I guarantee confidentiality. It can be done from anywhere, times are flexible and I guarantee your money back if you do not see change in your life.
