Work travel is often a big part of an overseas assignment. You may even be in one country while your spouse lives and works in another. I have heard fellow expats mention solo parenting in conversation. Now this topic (and the challenges and opportunities that come with it) has a dedicated place online. Welcome!
My husband and I are going on 15 years of marriage. He has travelled for most of them, including us living 6,000 km apart. I always said I would never stop working outside the home but ended up taking 10 years out due to babies, illness and moves. In 2007, I found a Life Coach to help me re-enter the workplace and discovered I’m a Cross-Cultural Kid in an Intercultural Marriage, Raising TCKs and very often a Solo Parenting Expat Mum!
Now a Cerfified Life Coach myself, I am passionate about cultural conflict resolution within families and supporting expat mums whose spouses are living in separate countries or frequently away for work.

The coaching sessions with Rhoda were a breath of fresh air in a stressful season of life with big transitions ahead. Her cross-cultural background, energetic investment in me, listening ear, and inspiring questions helped me through many ups and downs while studying abroad and navigating a long-distance, cross-cultural relationship. Sometimes what you really just need is someone to journey with you through your process. I’m thankful Rhoda was a part of mine.
I met Rhoda during a time of great change in my life. Through her active listening, her breathtaking humor, and her experience as an expat, Rhoda opened up new horizons, allowing me to study all the possibilities and to make sure that the professional choices and family choices that I was going to make lined up with my values. Always full of life and kindness, she connected me to different resources (books, networks ...) to allow me to advance on my own path. A big boost in a period of great upheaval! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I can only recommend her.
Appointments can be done spontaneously and Rhoda is there in challenging moments. Rhoda helped me organise my thoughts and name them. She brought things into perspective and helped "weigh" what was important or what was connected. She asked about my part in the problem solving process. Rhoda is very real and has a story herself, that enables a very honest talk, and makes it easier to be open from the beginning. She brought in bits and pieces from her own experience to relate to, yet she let me write my own story.
