Work with Gabriela

Hi, I’m Gabriela; expat for over 10 years

At first, in Vienna, I had a hard time adapting to my international life; I felt lonely, unmotivated, dependent on my partner, and I had trouble building new relationships… until I decided to seek help and started with online therapy.

After working with my psychologist, I finally managed to enjoy my expat life and that’s when I discovered my purpose.
The experience I lived, my studies and career, allow me to help other women who are in that situation, though sessions that combine scientifically proven tools from cognitive-behavioral psychology and coaching strategies.

How is the method I use in my sessions?

It is an approach that focuses on the specific and concrete challenges of the life as an expat.

It will support you adapt to your new environment; identify and address cultural, social, professional and personal dilemmas.

I designed it to help you give meaning, fulfillment and success in different areas of your life, directly and indirectly related to living abroad.

What do I offer you?

To be by your side until you can achieve happiness anywhere in the world

Clients feeling at home, wherever they are!

The progress I made between our first and 8th session was tremendous. She taught me ways of identifying my feelings and reframing my thoughts. Gabriela’s approach was structured, methodical, and surprisingly practical. Session after session, I started feeling truly enlightened and empowered. We worked on areas of personal and professional life. Gabriela gave me the tools to lay healthy foundations and communication in a relationship. I am immensely grateful.

One word to describe my sessions: “transformative”. I reached out to her because I had been experiencing intense loneliness for two years living as an expat. Since our sessions, I have not felt this horrible loneliness, and the main thing that has changed in my life is me and my attitude. I highly highly recommend Gabriela.

After the sessions we had together, I felt ready to enjoy my repatriate life. Above all, she showed me and made me understand that I had it all in me … just needed to be asked and ask the right questions. The answers were within me!  I can’t stress enough how much I recommend her!
