"Since starting one-to-one executive coaching with Emily Rogers one year ago, my confidence and clarity has crystallised. I have moved from not being able to articulate what I want, to now saying what I want (without a stutter) and advocating for it. My work with Emily has taught me to carve out time for self-reflection, question self-limiting beliefs, clarify my personal goals, and practise the habit-forming behaviours that will help me reach my goals. It’s not uncommon for women to get stuck mid-career. The confidential coaching has been exactly what I’ve needed to push through. While I still have a way to go, the path is becoming clearer."

"Emily Rogers has been coaching me for the past couple of years. Having moved back to Taiwan as an expat, I have been making use of Expat Parenting Abroad. I was initially involved in the group support which was instrumental in forming important relationships in my life, and a great way to short track the settling process. Since then I have worked with Emily regarding some specific issues on a one on one coaching basis, both personal and professional. Emily has been fantastic at helping me and finding solutions to the issues I have been tackling. She has a really good way of getting to the core of any issue, and she is equipped to support you to ensure the problem is manageable. Knowing you have someone to work with, is so important. I can’t recommend Emily’s support enough, whether personal or professional."

"This morning I felt sad… yesterday I said goodbye to my colleagues. And this morning it hit me that after being a working mum for 6 years and having found a balance in that, I have to build a new life and career abroad. Then I went to my room and watched your video. It helped. I didn’t take it out on the kids. I had an open conversation with my husband and I’m sure something good will come my way. Thanks for that, it works!"

"I was stressed about my kids, I was constantly worried about their school lives and their well being. The support group helped me to drop the guilty feelings, I know I am not the only one with this concern and I can trust that it will all be alright in the end. The fact that I could ask someone was nice, especially because people have kids in the same age groups."
