Have you just moved back home?

Are you thinking about moving back to your home - country?


The months that we spend with making the decision to move back, as well as the period that follows the happy first few months upon our return, are the two most difficult periods in any repatriate’s life, regardless if someone moves back home alone or with family.


I can help you, when:

  • you would like to have someone at your side with whom you can feel safe to share what’s going inside you without feeling ashamed for them,
  • you would like to someone who accompanies you at your journey while your new career and new identity evolves,
  • you feel desperate and lonely, and you can’t find your place in your family upon your return, or if it is difficult for you to have a good conversation with your old friends,
  • you are constantly thinking about whether moving back was a good idea for you,
  • you find it difficult to say ’no’, and to stand out for what you really want,
  • you have just faced with the negative realities of a repatriation,
  • there are unended relationships, which draw you back abroad


  • if you have been considering moving back for a long a time but you have concerns about its possible consequences on you, and on your family,
  • if you have fears about what is waiting for you and for your family when you move back, and if you will be able to deal with them,
  • if you are uncertain whether repatriation will solve your problems.

This is how coaching can support you in moving forward:

  • you get understanding and acceptance
    I went through the same repatriation process several times, and I have been researching and teaching about repatriation, where I have learnt that there is nothing to feel ashamed about it
  • you will get motivation and inspiration to do what is the right thing for you
  • I give you the latest facts and findings about the natural emotional, cognitive and behavioral reactions to repatriation.
    Learning about the natural responses will immediately releases the unnecessary stresses from your shoulders, and the fact that you are not alone with your experiences will make you feel relieved, ready to make the next step.
  • you will feel yourself calm and relaxed after the session
  • you will see it more clearly what you want, and what you do not want
  • I will share you tips that have worked for others in similar situation
    I have interviewed and consulted more than 100 expatriates and repatriates about their experiences. In this inventory of knowledge you can find inspiration, encouragement and ideas that you can shape to your needs.

About me: Szűcs Nóra, PhD

It was more than 14 years ago the first time I experienced living in a different country, and since then both my private and my professional lives have intertwined with it. I grew up in Hungary, but I also have experiences with living in Sweden, in the UK, in Germany, and now I have been living in Austria for more than 7 years, where I have been both researching and lecturing the psychological aspects of an expatriate life at the Vienna University of Business and Economics. I got my PhD title for studying women's experiences abroad in 2018, and now I am researching men's experiences in a foreign country.
I have been giving workshops and coaching for both expats and repats since 2011. I see myself as the follower of transactional analysis in my coaching work, which approach has been developed by Eric Berne. I regularly give presentations about expatriation at international conferences. Beside my academic publications, I have also written a book about Hungarian women's experiences abroad (Wings and Roots: Life abroad with the eyes of Hungarian women), which has been published by Ursus Libris in 2015.
