Cue drumroll…It’s almost here!

Finding-Home-Abroad-CoverAfter 6 months of cross continent, late night Google hangouts, feverish scribbling and lots of red ink, Finding Home Abroad – A Guided Journal For Adapting to Life Overseas launches on May 26th. I am officially a published author.

Sadly, (but happily for you all) I am most definitely not the brains behind it. That credit goes to my co-author and partner in crime, Trisha Carter, an organizational psychologist and experienced cross cultural trainer, who astonishingly is still speaking to me.

Trisha and I share a passion for creating hands-on, user friendly resources that are evidence based, informed by real life experiences, and have a proven track record. She is a kind, gentle soul who loves to support the inner journey, while I just love a good checklist (and possibly a few giggles). You can see how it’s a match made in heaven…

Finding Home Abroad is our answer to the challenge of crossing cultures effectively, using prompts and insights to help you observe your experiences and reflect on your responses. We wanted to create something accessible, useful, but also portable, so that it can be part of your journey, both in helping your adaptation and recording your milestones.

Supported by a brand new website,, there’s a whole host of bonus resources, including webinars, checklists, workbooks and a dedicated section for global coaches to help them get the most out of using journaling with clients.

To find out more about guided journaling, reflection and great transitions, join us for “Reflection: A Critical Tool for Expat Success”, a forty minute interactive webinar, including ten minutes for open discussion and questions. It will be held on Tuesday 27th May 2014 at 10:00am Sydney time.

      Thank you! And the website only goes live in tandem with the webinar, so only a landing page to see today. There is some great stuff that will be going live on Tues /Weds (depending on which part of the world you are in!), so we are very excited.. And a little exhausted!

    Woo hoo! That’s fantastic! I have no idea if I’ll make the webinar live but will sign up anyway. Do you have a FB page / tweet message that I can share or shall I just do my own? And where is the book sold – Amazon? Is there a Kindle version?
    PS I’ve signed up for so will be live at the end of June come what may :-)

    • Rachel says:

      We’ve tweeted and I’ve shared a link on the Defining Moves Facebook page – I’d love you to share it!
      As for the Kindle version – it’s in the works..
