My Big Why

I've always been fascinated by human behaviour and more importantly, I've always wanted to help.  

I've had a lot of ups and downs with my moves, but it was during my Tokyo move that I realised (some) things could be easier with just small tweaks or shifts in perspective.  That's when I developed my Workshop addressing Attitude, Expectation and Identity for an expat spouse.

It was clear, it helped.  Nothing made me happier.  The spouses that came, left feeling less alone, with better understanding of why this was hard and most importantly, they walked out with a new spring in their step; confident that they could take on the challenge. 

My heart sang.

After fielding question after question during these talks, I realised that there were some basic common dilemmas that all expats face - and that's when the inspiration for UNPACK hit.

My most genuine hope is that UNPACK ends up in the hands of the people that need it most, and they find comfort and confidence in what they read.
