You've read my book and my blogs and you listen to my podcast. You know that I understand that living the diplomatic life has both highs and lows. My insight and perspective could help you as you live your diplomatic life wherever you lead it in the world. 

Choose one of my mentoring services below.

Note: These are mentoring calls. I am not an accredited coach or a licensed helping professional.



You have a problem with the diplomatic life you're living and you need support as you work it out. You feel that you may need some help and perspectives from someone who understands but isn't personally involved on issues like:

  • building true resilience

  • authentic leadership

  • loneliness and connection

  • understanding your behavioural drivers

  • being home

  • understanding the stories you're telling yourself

  • being a diplomatic spouse and finding your identity

  • parenting as diplomats

You'll share your situation with me in a 15-minute conversation where we'll see if we'll be a good fit for each other. If we agree to go ahead, we'll have five 50-minute mentoring chats over five weeks to help you get some perspective on what's happening with you.
