Here's what clients say

This program was above and beyond what I'd expected. The specifity of the videos was very welcomed and I can hardly wait to get started on my preparations!

Mary B.

"We are around 70 years old and are contemplating moving to a new country for the first time. We found the course ‘How to Prepare for your Scouting Trip’ informative, inspiring and useful. We appreciated the worksheets Deborah had prepared, and the questions she posed really helped us to focus on what we wanted to obtain from our scouting trip. We found Deborah’s presentations to be pleasant, positive, engaging, and clear."

Deborah is a great facilitator and is passionate about her work. My wife and I attended her sessions and found them very rewarding. Her experience and coaching style come together seamlessly, making for fun and impactful sessions. I recommend you check them out for yourself - you'll be glad you did.

"Deborah is a great expat coach and I recommend participating in her workshop! As an expat myself, I wish I had met Deborah a year before moving to Portugal, she helped me figure out some issues I never thought about it. Great content for expats!"

Gustavo Genú

I found group workshop sessions with Deborah really useful. Her relaxed approach and obviously experienced skill in managing the groups was reassuring and her English is fluent. I got a lot out of the two groups I attended - insights that have stayed with me and made settling in a lot easier than it might have been

Expat Coach

Deborah Dahab

I am an expact coach and intercultural psychologist. Also, a seasoned expat, I have lived, studied, and worked in 5 different countries on 3 continents. My own experience, coupled with my observation of other people's experiences, motivated me to search for answers as to why we sometimes fail when moving to a new culture, and more importantly how to increase the chances of success. This quest led me to pursue a Master's in Intercultural Psychology and complete a coaching certification at ICC (International Coaching Community). I am also a certified trainer and NLP Practitioner. With these tools in hand, I help expats and expats-to-be so they can overcome the challenges of moving and create their best ife abroad.


How many people have you helped move abroad?

Good question! I've lost count, honestly. I've been coaching so many people over the years and have my own Facebook group where we help people move abroad.

When will I get access to the 'coming soon' modules of the course?

When you buy the course, you'll get access to all the modules and assignments immediately!

Can I work with you personally?

Included in this offer is the possibility to schedule 1:1 meeting with me after going through the course. I'm looking forward to speaking with you about your journey to give you additional tips!

I am going to on my scouting trip in less than a week, will the course still be useful?

For sure. You can apply the learnings anytime before you leave for your trip. In fact, the course also covers what you should do while you’re on the trip and even after you’ve returned.

How long does it take to complete the course?

The course is designed to be completed in 4 to 5 hours. Of course, this also depends on how much time you dedicate to answering the exercises in the workbooks.

I am going to go on scouting trips to many places, can the course still help?

Absolutley! The course is not specific to a certain location, so you can use the lessons, workbooks and checklists any where you are going. You can access the lessons for 12 months after you’ve enrolled, so you have plenty of time!
