Workshop: Happy Expat Spouse

Come join us and author/mindset coach Tanya Arler as she shares her experiences and enlightening insights about being an expat spouse.

Whether it’s a first time move or one of many, every spouse faces personal challenges during the transition which are specific to expat life as a spouse; loss of identity, lack of direction, loneliness…

During this talk you’ll gain insights to help ease the adjustment into your new life, tools to deal with the unique challenges you’refaced with and realize that you’re not alone. With wit and humor, Tanya Arler will reveal how attitudes and expectations help or hinder adjustment, offer new perspective on how to rebuild your identity, and share indispensable wisdom for managing what she calls ‘the bumps in the road’.

Drawing from her experience as a Mindset Coach and her own personal journey, Tanya wrote a practical guide, offering straight-forward answers to the most common dilemmas that expat spouses face.

"The hardest part about being an expat spouse IS NOT adapting to a culture, learning a language, or even finding a job. - although these are not easy tasks - The hardest part is our inner life. Losing our identity, lacking direction, losing our support network... All the while feeling ungrateful because we know how fortunate we are. I have been there, I understand."
