Hi, my name is Franziska.

Originally from Austria, I met my Danish husband in 2004. Three years later, we took the decision that it was time to take our relationship to the next step. Moving in together. A big step in any relationship, and even more so in intercultural ones. It means living abroad for at least one partner – and in our case this partner has been me since 2007.

In these 15+ years as expat in an intercultural relationship, I have experienced first hand many of the joys and challenges of living abroad as an intercultural couple and international family. After having mastered some real crises and coming out stronger and happier on the other side, I now take my powerful combination of personal experience, professional coaching training and previous educational background to help others achieve the same.
