1:1 coaching for expats in Amsterdam

Get the tools, knowledge and personal support so you can be your own anchor, wherever you go

As a former diplomat and avid traveller, I know what it's like to keep moving around and getting used to a new place, in a new country, with new people. You learn to be independent, but sometimes you miss your trusted safety net when things don't go so well.


These things don't need to be big - you deal with the same issues as your peers, but because you're on your own, they can hit harder. You could face important life decisions about your career or starting a family, feel not entirely happy in your life as it is, or find it difficult to really show your true self in the workspace.

And sometimes the issues are a bit bigger. You realise you can't seem to shake certain patterns off, no matter how often you move. 

You could struggle with authority at work, recurring patterns in relationships, or a lack of self-confidence - whatever it is, being abroad doesn't make it easier.


Your family & friends are supportive but also don't really understand what it's like to live abroad, so it still feels like you're on your own.

  • not doing it alone (for once), but finding recognition and guidance through regular coaching sessions by someone who's been in your shoes?

  • learning what's behind recurring patterns in work, life and relationships, so you can finally change them?

  • identifying what it is what you really want - and need - so you can work on that, whatever your circumstances?

  • being at home within yourself, so that you feel confident, calm & connected wherever you go?

Coaching in Amsterdam

I offer 1:1 in person coaching sessions at my practice on the Van Eeghenstraat, next to the beautiful Vondelpark.

Hi, I'm Amanda Maxime

And I'm a life coach for high-achieving expats. As a former diplomat & travel enthusiast with 7+ years abroad, I know first-hand what it's like to build a whole new life in a different country. Currently based in the Netherlands again, I've coached over 50 globetrotters and helped them to feel as steady in their personal life as they do in their career.

I'm certified by the Dutch Order of Professional Coaches (NOBCO) and work with a wide range of methods & tools. 

Good to know: I exclusively work with expats, and adding to that my personal experience abroad, I'm very familiar with the challenges that come with expat life. You don't need to explain your context to me, allowing us to go to the core of the issue straight away.

What Amanda does very well is listen carefully and ask questions. She is also not quick to judge and does not label. This means that she enters the sessions in an open way and really looks who she has in front of her. In addition, she did not lose herself in my emotions, but remained professional. She did bounce (naturally) along in such a way that I felt at ease.”

Whatever it is you want to work on: because I lived abroad myself many times, I know how nomad or expat life can be. Sometimes all you need is a safe harbour where you can dock. Where you can be your whole self, relax by feeling understood, and be provided with tools to continue your journey. My coaching sessions can be that safe harbour for you.

Coaching can help you to understand the beliefs, thoughts and behaviour that have held you back, and make positive changes towards your goals. I provide a safe space, where you can openly share and show your vulnerable side, without fearing to be judged.


Because of my many years travelling, studying and working abroad, you won't need to spend much time explaining your environment to me, which will allow us to go quickly into depth.


As a coach I work 1-on-1 with you to see what lies behind your coaching question and how we can go to to the desired result. I believe all the answers are already within you - but that you just need some tools to discover them.

Let's chat about the coaching journey

Would like to know more about the coaching journey? Plan a free introduction! In this discovery call we will get to know each other, look at your coaching question and I'll tell you more about how I work.

Uitzicht uit vliegtuig

Amanda Maxime was a great help to me as a coach. She is wonderful at navigating difficult emotional topics and asked the kind of questions that gave me a better insight into who I am and where I want to be.


I now feel better in touch with my feelings and understand where they come from, rather than being stuck in my mind most of the time.


I could clearly feel Amanda's passion about coaching and personal development from the energy during our sessions.


Highly recommend Amanda as a coach to anyone who's going through some big changes or thinking about it."
