The Vibrant Expat

Signature 1:1 Coaching Program 

Everything you need for a happy life abroad.

Are you an expat woman who feels unsettled in your life abroad?

Are you an expat woman who…

  • feels stuck and struggles to find your place and purpose in your new home
  • often feels lonely and isolated
  • often thinks life just feels hard when you thought expat life would be glamorous and exciting
  • loves your new life and are grateful but something is missing
  • wants to create a project (professional or personal) while being on expat but you don't know where to start and how to reach your goals
  • finds yourself waiting for your spouse to come home, eager for the weekend or for your next holiday - it’s hard to be in the present moment and enjoy your daily life
  • wishes you had more ways to feel satisfied, motivated and joyful
  • wants to take your personal development journey to the next level and find greater meaning in your life abroad

Expat life is so exciting. The adventure, the mindblowing experiences, the newness of everything.

The feeling of freedom we get from being out in the world on our own, free to do and be as we please.

There are so many advantages to this global lifestyle.

But no one said it would be easy - in fact, it is downright hard.

The rollercoaster of emotions we feel.

Some days are great and others are filled with challenges.

Missing “our people” and the unease we often feel in our daily life.

I was once a struggling expat who felt isolated, lonely and unsettled in my new life.

And after many years of moving, exploring, struggling, and adapting, I now know exactly what it takes to have empowering and happy experiences abroad - no matter where on the globe I land.

Not only has my methodology worked for me to find greater purpose, motivation and joy in my expat life, but it has worked for other women, too.

"I really enjoyed learning about the Ikigai philosophy. It was straightforward and easy to understand and gave a clear structure of ways for me to connect with my purpose. It reinspired something in me. The facilitation by Karly was also really good. She was knowledgable, pleasant to listen to and easy to speak with. I felt comfortable sharing my feelings and experiences with her."

"This philosophy is so refreshing and raw that it really can help anyone narrow down (or find!) the certain things in life to look forward to, to be grateful for, and to be excited about as well as realign their ship if they are feeling off-course! The exercises that Karly walked me through really tapped into something for me personally and opened my brain and heart in a way I didn't know I had the capacity for!"

"Karly teaches and lives the power and depth of the Ikigai concept with knowledge and grace. Let her share this potent tool with you and guide you to an expat life filled with meaning, purpose, and joy." Vera

Karly is intelligent, kind and well-versed in coaching techniques (Ikigai and otherwise) and her approach is informed by a well-lived, caring and adventurous life. I highly recommend her services to anyone going though a significant life transition of any kind.  Matt

Will it work for you, too? Yes, it will. I promise.

What makes this program unique and powerful?

When you are expatriated, you are stripped of your ordinary surroundings, your friends, your daily routines, and life as you know it. You lose the basic fabric of a happy and fulfilled existence.

The foundations required for living a happy and fulfilled existence are defined by Kamiya Meiko - positive psychologist and mother of ikigai -  as the 8 needs of ikigai.

-Life Satisfaction

-Meaning and Value

-Bright Future

-Change & Growth



-Sense of purpose


The Vibrant Expat Program helps you identify the needs you have lost through being expatriated and helps you (re)build, brick by brick, the foundation for the happy and fulfilled expat life you deserve.

We bring together our tools as certified coaches, with the experience we have as expats, and the 8 needs of ikigai to help you go from being a struggling expat, to a confident, self-assured and integrated global woman.

The exponential benefits:

Once you understand this philosophy you will be able to return to it over and over again throughout various expatriations, and throughout your life - expat or not.

Understanding these 8 needs is a game changer for how we show up as expats and how we live our lives.
