OK, you didn't come here for a sales pitch and they're not my strength, anyway. Let's skip that awkwardness and get straight to the point.

You just know that after reading my book, my blogs or listening my podcast, I understand that living the diplomatic life has both highs and lows. You feel that my insight and perspective could help you as you live your diplomatic life wherever you lead it in the world. 

And that's exactly what a good mentor does. They're in your corner. They want you to grow. They want you to succeed.

I'd love to be your mentor and to connect with you and help you reconnect with yourself and the world around you.

Let's make it happen.

Become a Minister or Ambassador-level member of The Lonely Diplomat now!



As your mentor, you get:

  • to speak directly with me, the author of a book, over 40 blogs and 25 podcast episodes on mental, emotional and physical well-being for diplomats and those who live the diplomatic life

  • the benefit of my 20 years' experience working in the public sector

  • wisdom attained over four postings spanning four countries over 10.5 years (two as posted diplomat and two as accompanying spouse)

  • my relatable experience of having a mid-life crisis while on diplomatic posting, learning from it and living authentically

  • my understanding of what it's like to parent as a diplomat and as an accompanying spouse

  • the wisdom from experiencing a relationship breakup while on a diplomatic posting (former spouses can be treated appallingly by the diplomat's employer)

  • working through issues about my sexuality

  • the insight that comes from being compulsorily evacuated and repatriated as an accompanying spouse.

  • a message that resonates with diplomats and those living the diplomatic life in over 190 countries through my blog and podcast (see feedback and testimonials)
