You’re excited. Nervous. Overwhelmed. Exhilarated. Intimidated.
All at the same time!


Hi, I’m Charlotte Nicholson, ranked #1 Coach in Breda by Influencer Digest. I love to use my passion for planning kids’ parties and making delicious desserts to create my community in new countries!

In 22 years of living and working abroad, I’ve become an expert in reinvention! I’ve started my life over 6 times in 6 countries on 3 different continents. As a single woman, I uprooted my life in London for the opportunity to experience Malaysia. I studied abroad in Paris, worked in London, Barcelona, and Amsterdam. I spent 6 years in Qatar, where I had my 2 children, and we all moved once again to The Netherlands!

Taking the leap to move abroad takes a willingness to try new things, to do things that scare you, and to be willing to fall down and get back up again. My natural love of pushing my limits has led me to indoor skydiving, quad biking, wakeboarding, and, most recently, bungee workout.

But you don’t need to jump out of a plane to become resilient and fearless . . . that’s where coaching comes in!

Culture shock is real, and it can impact your identity.

Whilst living abroad, I saw that everything that distinguished me as a person (career, friends, family, network, religion) seemed to disappear, especially when I was an accompanying spouse.  I felt lost in who I was. I both struggled first hand and saw other people struggle with making tough decisions, the stress of the move itself, and the challenge of settling in and adapting to the new culture, creating a home, and building new relationships.

Coaching helps you make the most of this amazing opportunity.

At a crossroads where I felt especially lost, I hired a coach. She helped me find and honor my own voice and gain clarity on the decisions that were important to me, instead of doing what was expected of me. When you move abroad, other people’s expectations can quickly overpower your own desires.

That’s why I became a Certified Professional Transition Coach. It’s my mission to support and coach others through remarkable expat experiences, from the moment the opportunity of a lifetime is put in front of you. Think of me as your personal cheerleader to help you navigate every challenge and guide you to take necessary steps to create an amazing life abroad.

Are you considering or committed
to a move abroad?

  • An opportunity to move abroad has been put in front of you . . . it’s exciting, but also a huge decision!

  • You’re committed to your move, but the anxiety and overwhelm
    are getting the best of you.

  • You’ve moved . . . but you’re finding that you’ve lost your sense of self and identity, and it’s impacting not just you, but those around you.

  • You had to leave your career behind and are having to reinvent yourself to follow your spouse.

  • You’re a mother abroad trying to find your way without your close support network.

At every stage of the journey, I’m here to empower you to find your way with confidence.


That steps starts with arranging a complimentary call with me to learn if I am the right person to help you make the difference only you can make.

Let’s explore together how YOU can go from being stuck, overwhelmed and frustrated to experiencing more direction, freedom and happiness in your life.

“I would definitely recommend Charlotte to any one, and especially to a friend. She is a true professional who has the skills to support ones growth and development. She acts with integrity, sensitivity and compassion.”

“Charlotte helped me enormously with a transition I was going through, which was pretty daunting for me both in terms of my own mindset (needing to embrace rather than fear the change) and also in how I tackled some tricky conversations I needed to have – and with her help I nailed it!” 

Julia Finch

“Having Charlotte as my Coach is like having a best friend that will not let you get stuck in your own head. She intuitively asks questions that make me think deeper and to see my concerns in a whole new light ”
